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. Scientific studies have established that applying a UV log/wood stabilizer will ultimately protect future finishes from cracking, chipping, peeling and fading. Log-Gevity™ Log Stain & Stabilizer extends color fastness while addressing certain harsh elevation and climate conditions. This is achieved by isolating certain solvent-borne wood stabilizing ingredients. These ingredients enable the Log-Gevity™ Log Stain & Stabilizer to penetrate the wood to deeper levels, enabling the colorant to migrate further within the wood, which ultimately extends the life of the finish. Log-Gevity™ Log Stain & Stabilizer stabilizes the wood, protecting the second semi-transparent coat by bonding with the initial pre-finished/stabilized wood.
