WOOD ASSURE 1 - WOOD | CONCRETE STAIN
ZERO VOC - PRACTICALLY ODORLESS
EXTERIOR WOOD AND CONCRETE STAIN
ADVANCED INORGANIC MOLD SURFACE PROTECTION
BLOCKS UV/ IR and OTHER SUN / SPACE RADIATION
BEST CEDAR SHINGLE DIP EVER CREATED
Wood Assure 1 is a concentrate. It Mixes 1:1 with water. One Gal makes Two Gal's. One Pint makes two pints.
Wood Assure is the best Zero Voc Wood Stain engineered for exterior wood staining. It is non flammable, very low odor and easy to apply to Large areas, such as Siding, Barns and Fences. Large wooden structures can be protected easily and economically. If applying on decks be sure to top coat with Mountain XT Deck Stain. Sample Pints are recommended in advance.
Made from durable, inorganic calcium hydroxide, which is specially bound with other pozzolanic earth oxide minerals to form a powerful stain impervious to harsh UV and IR radiation from sunlight. It is absolutely fantastic in high mold / Sun settings. When exposed to significant moisture we use Mountain XT or NanoTech to topcoat the minerals and provide the best of water, mold and sun protection.
ZERO VOC CONCRETE STAIN: We named it Wood Assure a long time ago but over the years it's powerful uses in Concrete became more and more obvious. As commercial uses gained interest our factories and labs found some incredible properties, which we continue to develop industrially for mil / gov applications. Since our factories deal in drums and large volumes inaccessible to the general public we decided to offer this product online. Thus, Wood Assure is offered here for Residential and Commercial Wood and Concrete. It has a Pozzolanic Reaction with minerals in porous Concrete. It cures, like concrete, over time, into a cementitious type of coating within the concrete matrix.
These properties can be highly desirable for residential and commercial grade concrete staining that is affordable and does not peel, for instance: High Elevations, Harsh Climates -sidewalks, pavers, porches, pool areas, basements, garages. For wet areas, Flood the surfaces with NanoTech diluted 1:1 so it can penetrate deeply into areas that need extra water protection. NanoTech works extremely well on exterior concrete and has a special relationship to pozzolanic minerals in concrete and Wood Assure 1. This synergistic relationship can come in handy for horizontal and wet surfaces with or without forming a film on the surface.
CEDAR SHINGLE DIP: A tub of Wood Assure 1 untinted creates a simple method of dipping cedar shakes, shingles, siding. This forms a reaction with the tannic acid content of the cedar and creates an extremely durable mineral coating. Cape Cod Grey type shingles can be achieved that block UV/IR Radiation from the sun in a superior manner than organic coatings. The inorganic minerals in Wood Assure do not break down in sunlight. Eventually, they will weather away with enough rain and weather exposure but the highly mold resistant surface properties tend to remain locked into the wood fiber cell for many, many years, possibly permanently. Maintenance is a simple wash and recoat as needed. No peeling. No stripping.
BACKGROUND of WOOD ASSURE 1: For a healthy earth, sustainability and chemical sensitivity reasons, there is good logic to embrace the power of Lime. Lime and wood have been friends since before man. For hundreds of years farmers have used lime to kill mold in barns and to protect from harsh sun outside. While it worked great at first, those older methods had some weaknesses. Earthpaint has worked tirelessly for many years to remove the weaknesses and improve on the strengths of Lime. Not easy but worth it! The great popularity of Lime Prime is one example. Out of this incredible natural mold abatement technology sprang the advanced zero voc lime based wood stain we call Wood Assure 1.
DESCRIPTION: Wood Assure 1 is the first part of this state of the art natural exterior stain system (see Top Coating below). It is provided in a heavy duty, concentrated formula that gets mixed 1:1 with water. This cuts down on shipping and material expense. Wood Assure 1 is the best natural exterior stain that contains zero voc. Using advanced inorganic mineral technology, Wood Assure 1 is as impervious to harsh sunlight uv radiation as a rock is. With no carbon molecule to degrade the mineral composition is able to withstand severe climates. Infrared radiation and high heat surfaces benefit from the cooling effect of Cool Whitewash, so does the earths atmosphere. The UV and IR radiation is reflected off the surface and back out to space where it belongs.
RECOMMENDED FOR: WOOD - CONCRETE: Siding, Barns, Fences, Severe Mold and Sunlight Decks, Undersides of Decks, Sidewalks, Pavers, Basement Floors.
300-600 Sq Ft / Gl THEORETICAL COVERAGE: Varies based on porosity and density of surface. 300-600 sft / gallon when it is mixed with one gallon of water.
STAIN AND SATURATE SURFACES: Take one gallon Wood Assure 1, mix it 1:1 with water = 2 gallons of material. Saturate the surface and brush into the wood or concrete until product is fully absorbed. Spread Rate should not exceed 800 sq ft per gallon or it will indicate the surface is NOT porous enough to fully receive the mineral coating. The coating is reacting with wood and concrete to form a durable mineral stain. If it doesn't penetrate it won't work. More prep is needed to open the surface and permit full saturation.
DILUTION REQUIRED: Mix 1:1 with water before using. Product is a concentrated paste and must be mixed with water before using.
WATER PROTECTIVE TOP COATING: Mountain XT or NanoTech. Siding, barns and such that aren't getting constant heavy exposure to rain and water do not necessarily need a top coat. Most barns do not get topcoated and do excellent. We have seen high mold area barns last over 10 years with one coat of Wood Assure and no return of mold. Topcoating can be determined after the first coat of Wood Assure 1 is applied.
