Clean Your Logs
Great Preparation is the Key to Application Success!
Caulk All Gaps and Checks
It is natural for wood to crack/check over time due to changing seasons, temperature and aging.
Fill any spaces between the logs and upward facing cracks/checks in the wood after applying a wood preservative and before applying Cetol Maintenance. Fill all joints, cracks, and nail holes with a good quality acrylic latex caulk/filler created specifically for use with wood like Energy Seal or Check Mate 2 prior to applying log finish.
Cetol Maintenance can be applied only over Sikkens Log & Siding, Cetol 23 Plus when the finish is dull but otherwise in good condition with no bubbling, peeling or flaking.
Note: Once you apply Sikkens ProLuxe Cetol Maintenance RE removal of all product is necessary to recoat with Cetol Log and Siding or Cetol 1, 23 Plus.
Sikkens Cetol Maintenance RE wood finish should be applied within four weeks of surface cleaning, provided that the surface remains free of dirt, grease, grime, mildew.
Please Note: Tannin containing woods such as redwood, red cedar, mahogany, douglas fir, etc. contain tannic acid which tends to migrate to the surface and discolor the stain, especially noticeable when using white or light colors. The discoloration is not harmful and can usually be removed. Apply a cleaning solution of four (4) ounces of oxalic acid to one gallon of warm water using a garden sprayer or a heavy nap roller cover. Allow solution to dwell on surface for 20 minutes then thoroughly rise with clean water. Do not allow solution to dry on wood surface.
