LIFELINE ULTRA-7 Wood Stain is the first part of a stain system consisting of one color coat followed by a coat of LIFELINE Advance Clear Exterior Topcoat.
Lifeline Ultra-7 is the most durable exterior stain that Perma-Chink Systems has ever developed. After multiple exposure tests in harsh weather areas across the country (think snow country, the sunny southeast and extreme mountain locations), Lifeline Ultra-7 stands out as THE top-of-the-line, long-lasting finish.
The secret behind its durability is Lifeline Ultra-7’s state-of-the-art resin that creates a flexible and tough seal on your home’s logs. Perhaps more importantly than the seal’s strength, the resin also ensures that the seal is continuous, providing protection from holes and gaps that might otherwise develop with a lower-quality finish. In addition it has unsurpassed adhesion to wood.
It’s this continuity that has proven to be much more resistant to UV degradation, color fading and adhesion loss. And just like all Lifeline finishes, the water-resistant film breathes just like Gore-Tex® to allow trapped moisture to evaporate from your logs.
COVERAGE RATE: Approximately 300-400 square feet per gallon over bare wood, depending on porosity.
If a darker color or heavier coat is desired, it is best to apply two thin coats of Ultra-7 rather than one heavy coat.
