Default Wood sealer in the USA that is safe I think

After being frustrated with not able to find plastikote except for automotive applications I think I found a safe alternative. Here is the link. Access Denied

It says it is pet safe and even food safe. Let me know if I am wrong.

Without knowing the exact ingredients used(which are not stated even upon further research through the manufacturer website)safety cannot be guaranteed.It sounds interesting,but certainly not something I'd be willing to risk.Food safe and pet safe may not necessarily mean hamster safe,as there are things hamsters cannot have which are relatively safe for other animals including humans and dogs.

It may be okay to use. However, you're going to need to find a comprehensive list of ingredients. If everything on that list checks out, it's okay to use, but I'd link it here to be sure

There are some DIY wood seals you could make which would be even better as you'd know every single thing that is in it and be able to have absolute certainty of safety(and can be far more natural) You'd have to make sure exact ingredients are hamster safe and get a recipe,but it's fairly easy to find the information with a quick search on the internet!

From what I can find it's mainly just tricopolymer liquid. I can find little information on that, and I don't think it's actually some scientific compound but the material safety information is here: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdf...d2ee322014.pdf
The product is water-based, but seems to not list water as one of its ingredients, so does that mean that tricopolmer liquid is water-based? A bit confused, but I think that would be it.
As a whitening tint there's iron oxide (rust), marble powder, and some clay-based substances - I got that from here: http://agramarketing.com/page/_files...ymer1-2017.pdf
It's meant to be safe for all livestock, birdstock, and humans too. Non-toxic, though I wouldn't recommend drinking it .
Label for the product is here: http://agramarketing.com/page/_files...AL%20PROOF.pdf

While one portion of it may be safe,the other parts were still not specified by the manufacturer and therefore they'd not be okay.If anything,I'd be more worried about those parts.

We already know that clay isn't great for hamsters to ingest,so I'd say a product containing clay shouldn't be used either.There are safer natural DIY options for wood seals,and these options are far superior to questionable products.
