Any wood prep product for cracks in deck wood?


I have a wood deck with some cracks in the wood. I wanted to prep before sealing. I have some cracks in the wood and wanted to try to seal it. Any quick prep product to seal the cracks? I would guess there are 340 boards and 38 have cracks. Thanks.

I don't think the cracks will stay filled. The boards will continue to crack especially on traffic surfaces and and filler in there will just come out. Also the fille will look different than the wood unless you use a solid stain which is not recommend on horizontal surfaces.
