Sta Brite R - specially formulated concentrate for long-lasting protection and renewal of new or restored cedar roofs.

Protect your cedar shake/shingle roofs, siding and fences from sunlight and moisture with the long-lasting and environmentally responsible protection of Sta Brite® R. It works to enhance or restore the natural beauty of your wood, while guarding against deterioration long after other coatings let moisture reach the wood and cause decay, mold and fungus problems. In fact, treating with Sta Brite R can restore and extend the life of your cedar roof for a fraction of a new roof replacement cost.

Sta Brite R is a pigmented, water-repellent, weather-resistant treatment that is specifically formulated to provide lasting protection to wooden shake & shingle roofs, and unpainted siding and fencing from elemental forces. Its natural, earth-derived pigment system and additional protectants shield the wood from ultraviolet (UV) light, ultimately increasing wood surface life by preventing erosion and deterioration caused by harsh sunlight. The treatment's mild bleaching properties also help prevent build-up of wood surface stains. Re-treating every three to five years will keep the wood beautiful, solid and intact.

Sta Brite R contains no heavy mineral or lubricating oils which may have an offensive odor and, when vaporized, represent an environmental hazard. Instead, Sta Brite R prevents the splitting and checking of wood by limiting water infiltration and harmful sunlight. It is designed to work with the sun by reflecting harmful rays while simultaneously utilizing the sun's natural bleaching qualities to prevent unsightly stains.

Application Methods:
• Mixture can be sprayed, rolled, or brushed on wooden roofing, unpainted siding and fencing, etc., or wood may be dipped into the mixture.
• The solution should be stirred regularly during application to maintain the pigments in suspension, providing an even color on the treated surfaces.
• If a garden sprayer is used, it should be shaken regularly during application.

Surface Preparation:
• Old, weathered and discolored wood should be free of debris, cleaned properly, and thoroughly dried before application.
• Low-pressured power washing, with or without bleaching agents, may be used to remove moss, mold or algae. Make sure any bleaching agents used are washed off prior to the application of Sta Brite R.
• Hand brushing and air blowing may also be appropriate.
• Do not apply onto any surface that is painted, stained or contains any water repellent without first removing the existing coating or water repellent completely. Sta Brite R will not work on surfaces that are treated with a water repellent.
• Pressure-treated wood should be allowed to age and weather at least six months prior to the application of Sta Brite R.

Mixing Instructions:
• Shake or mix the concentrate thoroughly before diluting with from four to seven parts water.
• Mechanical mixing such as with a drill stirrer is recommended.
• For deeper color and added durability (especially when wood is shaded by trees or in areas with extremely heavy rainfall), water should be reduced to as low as four parts. Six parts water is the normal recommended dilution.
The diluted solution should be used on the same day it is mixed.

Application Instructions:
• Temperature should be above freezing.
• Shake or mix concentrate well before using.
• Maintain good agitation of diluted product during application.
• Do not apply less than 48 hours after rain for best results.
• To ensure the correct color, test spray a section of wood prior to coating the entire surface.
• Complete drying time is less than 24 hours. Surface is usually dry to the touch in 3-4 hours.
• Please note: Do not apply Sta Bright R to horizontal surfaces (decks or walkways) as traffic will scuff and quickly remove color and/or track pigments onto interior surfaces. Do not apply this product if rain is expected within 24 hours or if temperature is below freezing.

Product Storage:
• Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Mix contents before using. Do not allow to freeze.
• Observe good personal hygiene practices. Change protective gloves/clothing when signs of contamination appear.
