Capture® Log Stain’s unique formula moves freely as your logs move, instead of cracking and peeling like the other wood finishes. It provides the long-lasting protection you need and creates the dream-worthy look you want. Capture Log Stain is environmentally friendly and clean up is easy with just soap and water. Capture Log Stain is excellent for use on all of your vertical and ceiling woodwork, inside and out. It won’t hide the grain, but instead brings out your wood’s natural glow.
40° – 90 °F (4°– 32 °C). Capture dries to the touch in 30 minutes or less, in ideal weather. The finish will retain a slight tackiness until top-coated with Cascade® Clear Topcoat.
Air and surface temperatures matter when applying Capture. For Capture Log Stain to dry and adhere properly to the wood, apply the product when the forecast is predicting clear, rain-free and snow-free weather, with air and wood surface temperatures of 40° – 90 °F (4° – 32 °C) both during application and for the rest of the day after it has been applied. (This includes overnight temperatures!) If rain can’t be avoided, protect stained surfaces from direct rainfall for 1-2 days after application. Use a surface thermometer to check surface temperatures.
Capture Log Stain coverage will vary with the surface roughness and the porosity of the wood it is applied to.
Preserve Capture’s great look with Cascade Clear Topcoat for exterior application and Symphony Clear Topcoat for Interior application.
Maintenance is a must, but it needn’t be a big production every time. With Capture Log Stain, maintenance is easy. When the stain is in good condition: Simply clean the surface (a hose fitted with a high pressure nozzle is all that’s needed, or you can do a light power wash) and apply a new coat of Cascade.
You’ll bring back that freshly-stained look and renew the protection against UV damage and moisture in one weekend.
Within the first 12-18 months after Capture Log Stain is first applied, it is important to inspect the home for any checks and cracks that have opened up in the logs. This is a common occurrence on new homes that are still adjusting to their new environment, with logs coming to their equilibrium moisture content.
If you locate such areas, simply clean the surfaces with damp rags or bristle brushes to remove dirt, pollen, etc., and then apply more Capture Log Stain to fill and seal the checks and cracks that have opened up in the logs. As long as the stain on the surface is in good condition, excess stain can be wiped away with a damp rag. Any check or crack wider than ¼” should be filled with a quality log home sealant, such as Sashco’s Conceal or Log Builder.
Clean up tools and hands with warm water and soap. Leftover product can be stored if the lid is tightly replaced. Store Capture in moderate temperatures (40° – 90°F [4° – 32°C]).
