Our innovative water-based sealants set a new standard for surface protection.

Unlike traditional coatings, our sealants penetrate surfaces from within, ensuring lasting durability and enhanced performance. Our extensive product range caters to a wide variety of needs, guaranteeing maximum protection for your substrates or surfaces. Whether you're at home or in an industrial setting, GripSeal not only safeguards your investments but also elevates their aesthetic appeal.


At GripSeal, we're more than just a business; we're a family-owned and operated company with a pioneering spirit. Since 1984, we've been at the forefront of developing and manufacturing water-based, co-polymer, and acrylic sealants in South Africa.

Our commitment extends beyond business to our environment and future generations. That’s why we’ve crafted wood and masonry sealants that are not only effective but also environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and lead-free. We believe in safeguarding the beauty of nature’s assets, and our coatings reflect this ethos.

GripSeal’s stains and sealants are designed to protect and nourish wood, enhancing its natural appeal. Our nationwide distribution network ensures that our products reach both major hardware groups and independent retailers.

Efficiency, personalized service, and retailer training are core principles we hold dear. We believe in doing things right the first time, guided by values such as honesty, integrity, innovation, and a deep consideration for future generations.

As pioneers in coating technology and innovation, especially in the realm of water-based coatings, we’ve been a resounding success since our introduction in 1984. Our commitment to innovation continues, with our recent launch of the first water-based oil product in South Africa.

Building and nurturing strong relationships is the cornerstone of our business philosophy. We dedicate a substantial effort to establishing the right connections with our suppliers, retailers, manufacturers, and, most importantly, our valued customers. Our ongoing efforts in this regard are evident in the enduring results we achieve year after year.



At GripSeal, we take pride in offering water-based sealants for a variety of compelling reasons:

  1. Environmentally Friendly: Water-based products align with our commitment to environmental sustainability. They have a significantly lower environmental impact compared to solvent-based alternatives.
  2. Lead-Free: Our water-based sealants are lead-free, making them safer for both users and the environment.
  3. Enhanced Durability: Unlike traditional coatings, water-based sealants penetrate surfaces, forming a lasting bond that provides superior durability and protection.
  4. Low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds): Water-based sealants have low VOC content, minimizing harmful emissions and contributing to healthier indoor and outdoor air quality.
  5. Odorless Application: Experience a more pleasant and comfortable application process with water-based products that are virtually free from chemical odors.
  6. Quick Drying: Water-based sealants typically dry more quickly, allowing for faster project completion and reduced downtime.
  7. International Trends: Embrace the latest trends in coatings and sealants by choosing water-based products, which are widely recognized and preferred internationally.
  8. Non-Toxic: Water-based sealants are non-toxic, ensuring safety for both those applying the product and those in the spaces where it’s used.

Every substrate and surface naturally holds varying levels of moisture content, making it only logical to seal them with a sealant of the same basis.

At GripSeal, we’ve built our success on this fundamental concept. Our unique water-based sealants excel because they go beyond mere surface coatings – they work by sealing surfaces from within.

The more porous the surface, the more effectively GripSeal stains and sealants perform, as these substrates are inherently more receptive to our penetrating approach. By embracing the moisture content of each surface, we ensure that protection and enhancement come from within, providing you with lasting results and true substrate preservation.

Make the eco-conscious choice with GripSeal's water-based sealants—where environmental responsibility, longevity, and safety come together for exceptional performance.

At GripSeal Chemicals, our commitment runs deep. We’re dedicated to providing high-performance products that not only meet international environmental and VOC legislation but also bear the mark of environmental responsibility.

Our entire product range is rooted in water-based, environmentally friendly solutions. To reinforce our dedication to preserving the environment, we are in a constant quest to discover and renewable sources found in nature, which we incorporate into our manufacturing processes.

We recognize that environmental consciousness extends beyond our products. It encompasses our entire operation, from our choice of suppliers to our manufacturing processes and logistics, and extends all the way to the disposal or recycling of our final packaging.

At GripSeal Chemicals, we firmly believe in our collective responsibility to protect this planet. We’re committed to the sustainable use of resources to ensure that we do not leave future generations with an irreparably damaged world. Together, we can safeguard our environment for our children and grandchildren.
