Sikkens Cetol Log & Siding
Sikkens Cetol Log & Siding is a translucent, satin finish for vertical surfaces. (This will no longer be a stocking item, thus, what is on the shelf is ‘A Really Good Deal’).
This alkyd high solids formulation (using European alkyd emulsion technology), offers optimum protection and a premium look using only two coats. The two-coat finish creates a protective film, giving the siding a premium look while preserving the natural character and grain of the wood. It is available in a variety of translucent colors.
Several properties of their popular Cetol 1 and Cetol 23+ have been combined and improved upon, allowing Cetol Log & Siding to perform as well or better…and with only 2 coats. (this equates to a big time and labor savings over the traditional 3 coat process of Cetol 1, 23+).
Sikkens Log and Siding conforms to the new 2005 VOC emission standards recently implemented in several states. You’re safe to use Log and Siding in all 50 states. (with the exception of LA, Orange, Riverside, San Bernadino counties in S. California).

- Maintenance: Proper maintenance starts with visual inspection. A time frame of 2 to 3 years on the south and west exposures and 3 to 4 years on the north and east exposures can be used as a general guideline. However, as weathering, exposure conditions, and applications can vary widely, maintenance may be needed sooner and should be performed when visually necessary, regardless of time frame. Sikkens Clear Maintenance coat can be used over Log & Siding

NOTE: If you’re chinking your log home after applying Log and Siding wait a minimum of 4 days in optimum conditions.
