Energy Seal Caulk is a textured sealant that helps to match the appearance of the surrounding wood. The texture also allows it to accept a stain so that sealed joints and gaps become virtually invisible. Energy Seal may also be used in narrow chink joints with a width of one inch or less.

Energy Seal can be used to seal gaps between logs, around windows, doors, vents and anywhere else where air or water can enter your home.

Energy Seal was created specifically to seal milled or scribed log homes and around joinery such as butt-joints, trim and corners. One application makes any log wall completely weather-tight.

Energy Seal has excellent adhesion and stretch. It is long-lasting, UV-stable and chemical-resistant.

Unlike commonly used sealants which look shiny and artificial, Energy Seal is textured to match the visual characteristics of wood. It easily tools to a smooth, professional finish, virtually disappearing into the walls after it's applied. It softens the lines on log walls and accepts the color of wood finishes. In fact, Energy Seal so closely matches your walls, most people can't tell the seams are sealed.

Application can be done by the homeowner or a professional contractor. We stock a full line of application accessories or can refer a professional applicator in your area.

When Should Energy Seal Be Applied?
• Weather: Protect freshly applied sealants from rain until a water resistant skin has formed on new sealant application (usually about 24 hours).
• Avoid applying in direct sunlight to help prevent heat-induced blisters.
• Wood surface temperatures should be between 40 and 90 degrees F. Tarps can be used to protect sealant applications from weather.
Best: It is generally best to apply Energy Seal after walls have been cleaned and before stain is applied.
Our sealants adhere aggressively to bare wood surfaces or to wood finished with Lifeline™.
• For the least visible sealant lines, choose a sealant color that’s a shade lighter than the stain you plan to use because it’s easier to cover a lighter color sealant with a darker color stain than it is to hide a dark colored sealant with a light colored stain.
• If you want visible sealant lines, you may apply Energy Seal after you stain. If you do this, it is best to apply Lifeline Advance™ topcoat after the Energy Seal. This results in a more even appearance, helps them blend in with the rest of the wall and makes sealants easier to clean.
Worst: Application to surfaces with freshly applied oil-based stain should be avoided.

Caulk Preparation:
• Before starting, inspect the installation of all backing materials. Where individual pieces of backing join to one another, make sure there are no gaps, ledges or discontinuities that show through after the sealant has cured. Smooth, trim or bridge gaps with tape as necessary.
•To insure proper adhesion, make sure that wood surfaces where the sealant adheres are clean and free of oils, waxes or other contaminates.

Application:
• Cut the applicator tip to the desired diameter of the sealant bead you want to apply. Begin by holding the applicator tip firmly against the seam and apply a bead of sealant. Apply enough sealant to maintain a wet thickness of at least 5/16” and no more than ½” across the entire seam after tooling.
• Apply as much sealant as you can tool smooth in about 15 minutes to avoid a dried skin before final finishing.
• After the joint is filled, trowel out to approximately 3/8th of an inch thick across the entire joint, making sure there is good contact between the sealant and the wood. Do not spray it with water at this time!
• Be careful to maintain proper thickness especially in corners.
• Tip: Occasionally check the thickness of the sealant using a toothpick to see if you are maintaining the proper thickness.
• Once the sealant is roughly in place with air worked out of it, spray it with a light mist of water and tool smooth with a trowel or spatula. Do not saturate the surface with water. If it begins to run you have applied too much.
• Tip: If you used masking tape at the edges of the Energy Seal, remove it now and smooth out edges with your tool.

Clean-Up:
• If you get any sealant on thesurface of the wood, be sure to wipe it off with a wet rag immediately. Dried sealant is very difficult to remove. Clean your tools and equipment with clean water occasionally during application.

Drying and Curing:
• Drying time and curing time are two entirely different terms.In warm or hot weather, Energy Seal and Woodsman may begin to skin over in as little as ten minutes while a complete cure may take a couple of weeks. Cooler temperature and high humidity slows the drying time and curing process.
• Energy Seal Caulk skins over in 1-2 hours.
• Cures in 2-8 weeks depending on temperature and humidity.
