A transparent finish is non-pigmented. If oil-based products are used, the wood may take on a slight amber hue. All wood features (wood grain and texture) are apparent. Final color will be similar to natural wet wood.
A translucent finish is pigmented and adds color to the wood, while still allowing all wood features (grain and texture) to remain visible. Wood color and porosity have a direct impact on the final color and appearance. [See the Translucent Finish Color Guide Here]
A semi-transparent finish adds color to the wood. Products in this category will still show the wood grain and texture, while hiding some of its "natural" appearance. Wood color and porosity have a direct impact on the final color and appearance. [See the Semi-Transparent Finish Color Guide Here]
If applied correctly, a solid finish does not show any wood grain. The type of wood does not have any impact on the final color; it only depends on the product used. [See the Solid Finish Color Guide Here]
Final color may vary depending on the type and age of the wood as well as its color, grain, texture and the gloss level of the product selected. The examples below show how Cetol Log & Siding Translucent Finish - 005 Natural Oak can appear on several different types of wood.
Tip: Always perform a sample test on a piece of scrap wood from your project to confirm the final color you will obtain.
*Colors are approximate and can vary depending on your monitor's settings.

If you chose a log home or wood siding, you appreciate the beauty, simplicity and purity of natural wood. But your choice also brings some challenge. Protective coatings and ordinary stains don't always give the best results. Sikkens' high-end products protect your investment. These products have been tested over time; they can resist the harshest weather and preserve the natural beauty of your wood.
Cetol Log & Siding is a high performance wood finish. This high solids alkyd formulation offers optimum protection and a premium look. Cetol Log & Siding is a two-coat satin finish creating a protective film that gives logs and siding a premium furniture-like finish that allows all the natural characteristics and grain of the wood to show through.
The Cetol 1 & Cetol 23 Plus System is a unique three-coat system combining a basecoat (Cetol 1) that assures excellent penetration and adhesion, and a topcoat (Cetol 23 Plus) that provides excellent durability and protection to vertical surfaces. Cetol 1 & Cetol 23 Plus System is a three coat system.
Cetol Maintenance is a premium, non-pigmented exterior finish to be used over existing Cetol 23 Plus or Cetol Log & Siding as a maintenance coat. Typically, with maintenance coats, pigmented products will further darken the wood. With a one coat application of Cetol Maintenance, the wood will retain the same look and color.
Sikkens Log Pre-Treatment is ideal for short-term protection of "wet" wood or logs, or when the weather does not allow for application of Sikkens film-forming finishes.
