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.
