** Log surfaces must be sound (meaning that all loose wood fibers and loose failing stains must be removed prior to staining) and clean from dirt, pollen and other surface contaminants. Therefore, surface prep should be done no more than 1-2 weeks before stain is applied. Media blasting and other dry prep methods are best, but power washing can work if done properly and the wood is allowed to dry.

*Apply to log surfaces with a temperature range of 40°F (4°C) and rising to 90°F (32°C) and falling. Plan your work so that log surface temperatures fall within this range: e.g., the southern exposure in the early morning or late afternoon, the western exposure in the mid to late morning, the east side in the mid to late afternoon, and the north side almost any time of the day. Do not apply to surfaces in direct intense sunlight, since the surfaces can be too hot.

+Recommended for use with all other Sashco products. It also works well with most other brands of borate preservatives, caulking/chinking, and clear exterior coatings. Please contact Sashco for details on specific brand and product compatibility questions.
