I have spoken with another forum member who discussed the product directly for this application with the MFG. Also note that it says:
"Very low VOC content. Contains no formaldehyde."
This is probably the most important thing to look at in a sealer, as well as the wood. Being formaldehyde free is key to keeping the Uro healthy, which is why certain types of malamine are unsafe, while some mfg's made formaldehyde free malamine.

Also, the sealer won't directly be getting any heat from your basking bulbs, as you will have some kind of substrate between the wood and the bulb, I don't imagine the wood to get beyond the recommended temperatures for the acrylacq with an inch of sand or millet or even slate absorbing all the heat.
