Cascade Clear Log Finish is the perfect product to follow application of Capture Stain or High Sierra Stain on your log home. Cascade provides a weather-repellant crystal clear finish while protecting against mildew discoloration and surface cracking of your logs or other vertical wood features of your log home such as log siding, wood trim, and hand peeled deck rails.
Algaecide Included in the New Improved Formula!

Heavily loaded with biocides and UV inhibitors to help prevent mildew and block damaging ultraviolet light.
Recommended finishing top coat for Sashco's Capture Log Stain, also compatible with other manufacturers’ products (verify compatibility before purchasing)
Maintenance coat for Capture Log Stain and High Sierra Log Stain, can be applied repeatedly to extend the life of the underlying finish
Lab and field tests have proven the Capture System (Capture log stain plus Cascade clear topcoat) to have superb resistance to chalking, fading, cracking, peeling, and loss of overall appearance.
Ultra water repellant and dries crystal clear without altering the appearance of pigmented base coat, caulking, or chinking
Cascade Clear Log Finish Coverage Rate (depending on surface roughness)
300-600 sq. ft. per gallon
Check that the pigmented coat of Sashco's Capture Log Stain is firm and set. Dry time is 4–24 hours, depending on temperature and humidity.
Thoroughly stir Cascade before application to clean, stained, exterior logs. Use a garden sprayer or airless paint sprayer to apply and brush out runs.
If the wood is very porous and the sheen on the logs is uneven after applying 1 coat of Cascade, multiple coats may be required for an even appearance.
*It is always good practice to try and protect logs as much as possible from exposure to moisture shortly after applying Cascade.

I have used Sashco products on log structures and wood sided structures for quit a few years now and they have worked very well for me. Clients have been very impressed with how long the finishes last and hold up to the weather. I will be ordering and using more Sashco products in the spring.
We love the Capture & Cascade

We love the Capture & Cascade wood Stain and other products. We bought a home with Wisconsin logs and will keep using this product which is still looking great on the House after 4 yrs and 5 months ago. Only touch up here and there due to harsh weather in mountain area (5000 ft elevation)
