NatureColor® Base Coat is a durable translucent satin exterior wood finish for log homes and wood structures. Its advanced oil alkyd resin formulation is combined with micronized ultraviolet reflecting iron oxide pigments and ultraviolet absorbers allowing beautiful grain definition, UV protection, and microporosity. Applied by brush or sprayed and back brushed in a three coat system, it penetrates and bonds itself to wood surfaces in a translucent weathering shield that when properly maintained will keep your natural wood home new looking year after year. NatureColor® Base Coat is used on exterior vertical surfaces as the first and second coat of a recommended three coat system. It can also be used alone as a one or two coat application on decks, docks, railings and other weather-exposed horizontal surfaces. Apply two coats on outdoor wood furniture and fences. Made in the USA.
