How To Use Transformation Log & Timber Stain

• Bare Wood/New Construction: Apply 2 coats of Transformation for the normal build. Be sure to allow the coat to dry at least 8 hours before applying the next coat.

Because lighter colored stains have less pigmentation, they don't hold up as well to UV degradation; therefore, 3 coats of Natural color are required.

• Maintenance Coat: Transformation will need a maintenance coat after several years. Do not allow Transformation to weather down to bare wood. Instead, Transformation is ready for a maintenance coat once it has lost its sheen and starts looking dull. At this point, first clean the logs to remove dirt and mold. Once the surface is clean, in most cases one coat of Transformation will be sufficient.

Transformation Log & Timber Coverage Rate
• 1st Coat: 150-300 sq. ft./gal.
• 2nd coat: 250-450 sq. ft./gal.
• As with all stains, coverage will vary depending upon roughness of the wood.

Tint Cartridge Size
• Use one full 28 oz. cartridge for every 5-gallon pail of Transformation Log & Timber Stain neutral base.
• Do not dilute the tint pack. Using less tint than recommended will diminish overall stain durability and performance.

Transformation Flex Tint Mixing Instructions
1) Remove peel & stick color label from cartridge. Apply to 5 gal. pail next to the lot #/UPC label near the pail lid.
2) Remove lid from 5 gal. pail of Transformation Log & Timber Stain neutral base.
3) Cut cartridge nub with Exacto knife or cigar cutter.
4) Insert cartridge into standard caulking gun. Engage plunger until secure in the gun.
5) Empty the entire contents of the cartridge into a 5 gal. pail of Transformation Log & Timber Stain neutral base. When empty, a small amount of the tint will remain at the very top of the cartridge. The cartridge is filled with a little extra so final color is not affected.
6) Mix thoroughly using a drill-driven paint mixer for 5 to 7 minutes. Tint should be evenly distributed and no solids left in the bottom of the pail. There should be no streaks or milkiness.
7) Mix stain periodically throughout application. Turn the drill on for a few seconds every 20-30 minutes to ensure tint remains evenly distributed and doesn’t settle to the bottom.

Cleanup and Storage
• Clean tools and equipment with mineral spirits or citrus-based cleaners. Discard empty containers in the trash.
• To avoid dislodging cartridge plunger, do not crush. Follow pail storage instructions for mixed stain. Do not dilute tint.

Product Questions

  • Can you use a partial cartridge for a lighter color?

    No this is not recommended. The color will be difficult to replicate and durablity will be ruined. It would be better to choose a lighter color with proper pigment load that way you get the color you're looking for.

  • How long do you have to mix Flex Tint?

    Stir until completely mixed which is about 3-5 minutes. The pigments can settle after about 15 minutes so regular mixing is still a must.

  • Can Flex Tint be mixed with other company neutral based stains?

    No. Flex Tint is specifically formulated for Sashco stains

  • Will the Flex Tint be identical to the Capture and Transformation Pre-Mixed?

    In final appearance yes. The mixing method is different and additional items are added to flex tint to ensure the pigments stay suspended.
