Lifeline Exterior

Transparent Wood Finish

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.
