Low VOC Premium Wood Finish
Lifeline Ultra-7 is the most durable exterior stain that Perma-Chink Systems has ever developed. After multiple exposure tests in harsh weather areas across the country (think snow country, the sunny southeast and extreme mountain locations), Lifeline Ultra-7 stands out as THE top-of-the-line, long-lasting finish.
The secret behind its durability is Lifeline Ultra-7’s state-of-the-art resin that creates a flexible and tough seal on your home’s logs. Perhaps more importantly than the seal’s strength, the resin also ensures that the seal is continuous, providing protection from holes and gaps that might otherwise develop with a lower-quality finish. In addition it has unsurpassed adhesion to wood.
It’s this continuity that has proven to be much more resistant to UV degradation, color fading and adhesion loss. And just like all Lifeline finishes, the water-resistant film breathes just like Gore-Tex® to allow trapped moisture to evaporate from your logs.
We’re so confident in the performance of our newest product that we’re offering it with up to a 5-year warranty against UV exposure when applied to bare wood and covered with Lifeline Advance clear topcoat and then a maintenance coat of Lifeline Advance during the third year.

Lifeline Ultra-2 – the two coat application helps to ensure consistent color development on your walls. From the day that you apply it to the many years of durability that you get from it, this wood stain will distinguish your home.
A protective clear coat of Lifeline Advance Gloss or Satin adds depth and clarity to the wood grain. The smooth surface of the clear coat repels dirt and dust, and makes walls easier to clean when cleaning becomes necessary. Like all Lifeline finishes, it is breathable, waterborne and easy to work with.
Lifeline Ultra-2 is the first component of our two component exterior wood finish system. The second component is a clear topcoat of Lifeline Advance Gloss or Satin. We have found that there are very distinct functional differences between the durability and appearance functions of stains and clear topcoats.
The stain system (Lifeline Ultra-2 and Lifeline Advance) is greater than the sum of its individual components. This is because the formulations of the two components are significantly different. Each is formulated to perform separate but complementary functions to the other.
We’re so confident in the performance of Lifeline Ultra-2 that it comes with a a 5-year warranty against UV exposure when applied to bare wood and covered with an initial coat of Lifeline Advance clear topcoat and then a maintenance coat of Lifeline Advance during the third year.

Our original exterior wall formula has been updated and improved for over 20 years. Lifeline Exterior forms a thin film at the surface of logs where the protection is needed.
Its breathability and flexibility allows logs to go through seasonal expansion and contraction while drying out to their core. Apply a clear topcoat of Lifeline Advance to maximize durability and minimize maintenance cost and labor.

Since it was introduced, Energy Seal has become one of the most popular members of our sealants. Energy Seal, was created specifically to seal milled or scribed log homes, log siding homes and around joinery such as butt-joints, trim and corners. One application makes any log wall completely weather-tight.
Energy Seal has excellent adhesion and stretch. It is long-lasting, UV-stable and chemical-resistant.
Unlike commonly used sealants which look shiny and artificial, Energy Seal is textured to match the visual characteristics of wood. It easily tools to a smooth, professional finish, virtually disappearing into the walls after it’s applied. It softens the lines on log walls and accepts the color of wood finishes. In fact, Energy Seal so closely matches your walls, most people can’t tell the seams are sealed.
Application can be done by the homeowner or a professional contractor. We stock a full line of application accessories or can refer a professional applicator in your area.
