I’ve experimented with a few different finishes on Padauk. GF Enduro (water based) maintains the orange really nicely. There is no UV protection though, so keep it out of the sun/lighting if you use that. I’m not sure UV blockers can be added to Enduro but a sealer with a UV block is a great idea.

I’ll see if I still have the pictures, but my friend helped install and finish purpleheart flooring in a well known Boston area musicians home for his daughter. They look amazing and I think he actually used some kind of deck sealant to preserve the color.
