Preparation Procedures for New, Weathered and Uncoated Wood:
The best method to prepare vertical wood surfaces is to sand with 80 – 120 grit sandpaper. However, the following preparation may be used as an alternate to sanding: Spray the surface with clean water, wetting the wood.
- Recommend cleaning the surface with a deck cleaner or stripper
- Apply this solution generously to the wood with a garden pump sprayer.
- Let the solution sit on the wood for 15 – 20 minutes.
- During this period, scrub the surface with a hard bristle brush to help remove mill glaze and/or weathering.
- Do not let the solution dry on the wood.
- Keep it wet as your are working. Do your best to work on the sides opposite of the sun.
- Power wash the cleaning solution from the wood with clean water.
To prevent damaging the wood, do not exceed 500 PSI. The nozzle must be a maximum of one (1) foot from the surface for full effectiveness. Let the surface dry for three (3) days before application (i.e. the moisture content is below 18%).
Weathered gray wood, or wood affected with blue fungi or rust from nails may be treated, after cleaning with the TSP solution, by applying a solution of four (4) ounces of oxalic acid crystals in a gallon of warm water. This solution should be allowed to sit on the affected area for 15 – 20 minutes before the final rinse with a power washer. Do not let the solution dry on the surface. After treatment, allow surface to dry for three (3) days. Fill all joints, cracks, and nail holes with a high quality polyurethane or acrylic caulk/filler and let cure prior to applying the coating system. Refer to caulk/filler manufacturer for proper application.
Application on hardwoods,
Wipe the surface with acetone immediately prior to application.
Rough-sawn wood with less than four (4) weeks outside exposure should be dry brushed with a stiff bristle brush to remove loose dirt, fiber and debris. Follow standard preparation procedures if exposure has been longer than four (4) weeks or dirt and debris remain visible. New pressure treated lumber requires a six (6) week drying period prior to application.
Water repellant treated lumber requires one (1) year of weathering prior to application. On previously coated wood, all old coatings must be completely removed before applying the first coat of any PPG Cetol system.
Application for Pine, Spruce, Cedar and other logs
Standard Application Procedure: It is always recommended to perform a two (2) coat color and sheen test on a sample of the wood. Color can vary with application, porosity and type of wood. Intermix batches to ensure color consistency. After preparation apply two (2) coats of Proluxe Cetol Log & Siding assuring thorough dry time (minimum 24 hours) between coats.
- If possible, back prime with the first coat. During application, saturate all end grains, nail holes, cavities, and cracks in the wood with Sashco Log Builder or Conceal color matching caulk to Sikkens Log and Siding colors.
- Brush on a liberal coat and maintain a wet edge to prevent lap marks. Recommended natural bristle brush with a handle where a pole can be inserted for ease of use.
- Brush in the direction of the wood grain starting at one end of the board or log and continuing to the other end of the board or log.
- The first coat of any Cetol system should be applied from the bottom up to avoid drips which may streak on the surface below.
- Follow recommended maintenance procedures and schedule.
- Cetol Log & Siding is compatible over an existing Cetol 1 and Cetol 23 Plus system. Cetol Log & Siding needs UV light to cure properly.
- The side that gets the least sun – You can use Cetol Maintenance Clear
The absence of UV light will significantly slow the drying process.

Proluxe Cetol® Log & Siding Log Application Procedure:
Kiln-dried or Air Dried Logs: It is always recommended to perform a two (2) coat color and sheen test on a sample of the wood. Color can vary with application, porosity and type of wood. Generally, the moisture content of these logs is below 18%. However, some logs may have a moisture content higher than 18%. Therefore, it is recommended to apply Sikkens Log Pre-Treatment and then allow a six (6) month drying period before applying Cetol Log & Siding. Follow preparation procedure before applying first coat of Cetol Log & Siding.
During application, saturate all end grains, nail holes, cavities, and cracks in the wood. Brush on a liberal coat and maintain a wet edge to prevent lap marks. Brush in the direction of the wood grain starting at one end of the board or log and continuing to the other end of the board or log.
The first coat of any Cetol system should be applied from the bottom up to avoid drips which may streak on the surface below. Follow recommended maintenance procedures and schedule. Green, Wet, or Treated Logs: It is always recommended to perform a two (2) coat color and sheen test on a sample of the wood. Color can vary with application, porosity and type of wood. These logs have a moisture content greater than 18%. Therefore, it is recommended to apply Sikkens Log Pre-Treatment and allow a one (1) year drying period before applying Cetol Log & Siding. Follow preparation procedure before applying first coat of Cetol Log & Siding. During application, saturate all end grains, nail holes, cavities, and cracks in the wood. Brush on a liberal coat and maintain a wet edge to prevent lap marks. Brush in the direction of the wood grain starting at one end of the board or log and continuing to the other end of the board or log. The first coat of any Cetol system should be applied from the bottom up to avoid drips which may streak on the surface below. Follow recommended maintenance procedures and schedule. Application Over Borate Treatments:
Do not apply any Sikkens Cetol system over a fresh, borate-treated wood surface.
Allow the borates to diffuse into the wood cells by allowing a six (6) month exposure time (12 months for green logs) before application of Cetol Log & Siding. To prevent borates from leaching out of the exterior surface, we recommend the application of Sikkens Log Pre-Treatment over the borate treatment. Before the application of Sikkens Log Pre-Treatment, allow the borate treatment to dry for three (3) good, sunny days. Just prior to the application of the appropriate Cetol system, the log surface must be cleaned thoroughly according to the Sikkens preparation procedures.
When borate treatments are applied, it is always advised to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. Maintenance Procedure and Schedule: Proper maintenance starts with visual inspection. A time-frame of two (2) – three (3) years on the south and west exposures and three (3) – four (4) years on the north and east exposures can be used as a general guideline. However, as weathering, exposure conditions, altitude, and applications can vary, maintenance may be needed sooner and should be performed when visually necessary, regardless of timeframe.
Before application of a maintenance coat, prepare the surface using the previously mentioned cleaning solution but reduce the amount to two (2) ounces of 100% powdered Tri-Sodium Phosphate or phosphate-free substitute. Let the surface dry three (3) days after power washing. Apply one (1) coat of Cetol Log & Siding or Cetol Maintenance. Please refer to the Cetol Maintenance Technical Data Sheet for specific guidelines on appropriate use.
