For more than 30 years, Sansin ( has been focused on creating the best performing, most beautiful water-borne wood finishes in the world for customers who demand the absolute best in performance and beauty for residential and commercial buildings.

Their innovative research and development programs have made them the leader in developing environmentally-friendly interior and exterior wood products and technologies that deliver outstanding color, durability and performance without the toxicity found in conventional stains.

Sansin launched with its Classic exterior product in the late 1980s, long before going green was mainstream, and it has since become their flagship finish for the log and timber industry.  It is designed to be an eco-friendly, water-borne finish that penetrates deeply into larger and wetter pieces of wood, yet still allows the wood to breathe and release moisture slowly.

That principle of combining high-performance and beauty in a low-VOC, breathable wood finish has become their trademark for all of their products and why Sansin is a beloved wood finish in British Columbia, specified by architects, featured on high profile mass timber buildings, favored by log and timber professionals and carried by premium independent retailers.

Their long-standing mission and vision are tied to their love of wood and protecting it naturally. Their passion for wood is further demonstrated by their support of the industry in British Columbia. This is shown through their consistent support for associations, like BC Wood, engagement with the architectural community and pride in being “Made in Canada.”

Sansin products are sold through a network of independent dealers in North America and Europe. Sansin retailers can be found at and their architectural/factory finish Precision Coat line is at Follow and like them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
