Thank you all for the answers . I would prefer something located in europe because i cant find anchorseal in europe.
I have seen a big sawmill here using normal candle wax. you can buy it cheap in blocks. the problem is you need to heat it in a pan. could be a electrical cooker or fire or gasburner.
it will get liquid when warm and form a thick layer when it cools of on the log

Folks, I think that weíre missing the original question.

In production operations, typically lumber stacks are trimmed and painted after kiln drying.  The photo posted by the OP show this.  Itís not the same as end sealer that is applied much earlier in the process.

UC Coatings not only sells end sealer for logs and green lumber, they also sell water based paint for branding packaged lumber.  I believe that this product is what the OP requested.

For the OP, go to USCOATING.con and see if you can find some European based distributors.

Re end sealers, like Danny I have found better results from Anchorseal Classic, as opposed to Anchorseal II.  I also prefer the winter formula as that way I donít have to worry about the drums freezing and the product going bad in my storage area.

I have used that kind of "paint" as you have to seal walls before you put on glazed tile in bath rooms. It is more expensive but it is elastic and it is very good. I have it for my most valuable logs.
