Outlast™ Q8 Log Oil is an EPA registered exterior wood preservative specifically designed to control decay causing organisms (and mold, termites, powder post beetles) in log homes and on wood siding. Outlast Q8 Log Oil provides unsurpassed water repellency and sheer trans-oxide color with one coat coverage. Outlast Q8 Log Oil is a totally non-film forming exterior treatment that will never crack or peel. The trans-oxide pigment system provides excellent UV control that operates like a sunscreen to slow down graying of the wood and provide fade resistant color. The solution soaks into the wood to provide protection, not just on the surface, but also deep into the wood cell structure. Outlast Q8 Log Oil offers unique flexibility in terms of application temperature ranges, log moisture content, and delivery method. Outlast Q8 Log Oil meets all nationwide VOC requirements. Made in the USA.

Application Temp: 50° F+, though best applied on very hot, dry days. Apply with a garden pump sprayer; back brushing is not required but helpful for the first application.
Coverage: Approximately 150-175 sq. ft. per gallon for new wood. Generally, it is recommended that new construction be re-treated within 24 months of the initial application. Exactly when during the 24 months is determined by the moisture content of the log and/or the temperature/weather conditions at initial application. Coverage needs to be in the 125-175 sq. ft. per gallon range. The more the better. Under application is far and away the primary cause of short treatment life. However, only one coat at a time is recommended. The water repellency in Outlast Q8 Log Oil builds quickly making it unfeasible to multi-coat until a period of years has elapsed. (It becomes so water repellent, it repels itself!) Additional applications should be applied as needed, usually every 4-8 years. Q8 Log Oil is very dark when first applied but lightens to the actual color after about 48 hours. Outlast Q8 Log Oil can be caulked or chinked with a Urethane caulking after 30 days. If using a water based caulk or chinking it has to be 60 days in warm weather (Summer) and 90 days if cooler or (Spring⁄Fall). Cleanup: Soap and water. Storage: Freeze-thaw Stable.
