1. Check for deterioration and decay. Remove and replace or repair deteriorated wood. Unsound wood should be repaired prior to applying LIFELINE Exterior. 2. SURFACE PREPARATION - All surfaces should be free from mill glaze and contaminates including dirt, dust, mold and mildew, old finishes, water repellents and wax. Use appropriate materials to clean and prepare surfaces. If a wood preservative has been previously applied, make sure it is completely dry before applying LIFELINE Exterior. If the surface is tacky or there are visible deposits on the wood, wash the surface with water and allow to dry. DO NOT USE LIFELINE Exterior ON SURFACES THAT HAVE BEEN BRUSHED OR RUBBED WITH STEEL WOOL. IF YOU DO, RUST SPOTS MAY APPEAR UNDER THE FINISH. If more than a week has passed since the surface has been stripped or cleaned, wash down the logs with an appropriate cleaning solution, rinse well and allow to dry before applying LIFELINE EXterior. If the surface has been media blasted or if the wood is rough and/or porous, apply a coat of After Blast™ Surface Sealer prior to the LIFELINE EXterior application. This will ensure proper color generation and add an extra measure of protection to the wood. 3. APPLICATION COVERAGE RATE Coverage is approximately 350-450 square feet per gallon for the first coat and approximately 600-800 square feet per gallon for subsequent coats depending on wood type and porosity. DO NOT USE THINNERS. STIR THOROUGHLY before and regularly during use. Wear rubber gloves to avoid stains to the skin and fingernails. If multiple containers are used on the job, they should be poured together to ensure color consistency. LIFELINE Exterior can be applied with a brush or airless sprayer. DO NOT APPLY TO HOT SURFACES OR IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. Do not apply when the surface temperature is below 40° F or above 90° F. Back brushing is required to work the finish into the wood for optimum performance. Apply LIFELINE Exterior in thin coats and always keep a “wet edge” to avoid lap marks. Wait for the first coat to dry (at least two hours depending on temperature and humidity) then apply a second coat. Always back brush to ensure even coverage and to avoid visible drips and runs. Once the LIFELINE EXterior has dried and you are satisfied with the appearance, we strongly recommend the application of one or two coats of LIFELINE ADVANCE Gloss or Satin clear topcoat. LIFELINE ADVANCE exterior clear topcoats enhance the beauty of the finish and play a significant role in protecting the wood against water, mold, and UV light, thus extending the life of the stain. Follow the product application directions when applying any topcoat.
