It's Lifeline™ Season!

PCS manufactured products have a 3-YEAR SHELF-LIFE!

When it comes to protecting log homes with innovative, safe, and trustworthy products, no name is more frequently called to mind than Perma-Chink Systems. Almost for 35 years, Perma-Chink Systems has firmly rooted itself as the premier provider of cutting-edge log home sealants, stains, and maintenance products. There are myriad reasons why log home manufacturers, builders, and homeowners around the world count on Perma-Chink Systems, Inc. Today Perma-Chink Systems made another step forward toward the environment by offering a 3-year shelf life for all manufactured products. Longevity, or shelf life, is the length of time that a commodity may be stored without becoming unfit for use. The shelf life of our products is an equally important environmental factor in order to reduce the potential impact of undesired disposal that could result from a short shelf life. To maximize your Perma-Chink Systems' products shelf life, follow these important storage tips:

  • Keep containers sealed and unopened to minimize exposure to oxygen and oxidation of the product.
  • Store away from windows and direct sunlight.
  • Store away from heaters or forced air vents.
  • Store away from exterior walls, if possible.
  • Store in a controlled temperature environment (50o - 70o F, 10o - 21o C)

Shelf life of a full unopened container is three years (no contamination from potential airborne contaminants). Product from opened containers should be repackaged into smaller plastic containers sized to be ‘full’ of product.
