|Log-Gevity™ Log Stain & Stabilizer is designed as the first step in a two-step finish for use with the Log-Gevity Log Finish Coat.
Log Stain & Stabilizer may be used on horizontal and vertical wood surface.
Log-Gevity™ Log Stain & Stabilizer is designed to protect logs from ultraviolet radiation, water intrusion, and ultimate log/wood degradation by integrating metallic UV inhibitors, zinc borates, with water repellants within its formula.
Log-Gevity™ Log Stain & Stabilizer extends color fastness while addressing certain harsh elevation and climate conditions. Log-Gevity™ Log Stain & Stabilizer stabilizes the wood, protecting the second semi-transparent coat by bonding with the initial pre-finished/stabilized wood.
