Log Home Finishes

Wood is a tremendously versatile material--and as long as it's protected, a strong and durable one. Traditional petroleum and acrylic-based coatings protect wood by forming a surface film, which repels water and UV rays, but also tend to prevent evaporation, trapping moisture in the wood and making it more prone to decay.  And, the paraffin waxes that protect against water in many water and solvent-based coatings are easily damaged by even minimal exposure to UV radiation.


Sansin's penetrating formulas let wood "breathe" more freely, improving dimensional stability and allowing wood to adjust naturally to moisture levels in the environment.  Sansin forms a monolithic bond with wood that aggressively repels condensed water while allowing moisture vapor to escape.  In addition, Sansin's modified natural oils and resins are impregnated with special UV protectants so every exposed cell is protected.  Because of their unique formulation, Sansin Enviro Stains help protect naturally against wood rot, giving your woods the long-lasting, beautiful protection it deserves, just as Mother Nature intended.

SANSIN CLASSIC is a penetrating three-coat finish for log and timber-frame exteriors.  Low in VOCs, UV resistant and water repellant, Classic is engineered to penetrate wood of variable moisture content, providing effective UV and weather protection while allowing wood to breathe.  Use Classic on log home exteriors and other exterior applications where a breathable low luster non-film forming finish is desired, including shakes, shingles, siding and fences.  Designed to wear gently over time, maintenance involves only simple periodic cleaning.

VOC Content: 52-70 g/L. Sizes: Quarts, Gallons, 5-Gallons. Coverage: 100-200 sf per gallon in one coat, depending on surface porosity and method of application.  Application: In three coats (two coats Classic Finish and one coat Classic protection). Flood coat to point of refusal by airless spray, brush or dipping; back bush drips and runs.

CLASSIC TOPCOAT is a penetrating, amber-colored, aqueous topcoat for surfaces treated with Sansin Classic Stain.  Low in VOCs and water repellant, Classic Topcoat provides superior water protection compared to Classic Clear UV and is used on surfaces subjected to severe wetting.  Use Topcoat as the third and final coat in a Classic three-coat application, on siding, logs, timbers and board and batten.

VOC Content: 206 g/L.  Sizes: Quarts, Gallons, 5-Gallons. Coverage: 100-200 sf per gallon in one coat, depending on surface porosity and method of application. Application: Flood coat to point of refusal by airless spray, brush or dipping; back brush drips and runs.
