Why We Like It
It makes our customer's happy! With over 300+ positive reviews from customers, we are confident recommending this product. We offer many different brands and this is the only true one coat product. Plus it's an actual preservative that prevents mold, mildew, decay, rot, and attack by wood ingesting insects. Stains and seals in one coat making your wood extremely waterproof. The variety of color options provide great UV protection. It controls cracking and splitting in wood. Some customers have even said cracks have closed partially or completely after applying the Q8. It is simple to apply with a basic pump up sprayer. Since it is totally non film forming it will never crack and peel like other surface coatings. The NBS30 Insect Additive repels many different insects but most importantly the relentless wood damaging carpenter bees. And last but not least, no job is done right without proper wood prep. The Outlast Kleenstart Cleaner deep cleans and brightens wood in one step.
We strongly recommend the Outlast products. It's hard to find products that provide comprehensive protection that are easy to apply and maintain over the long run. As always we do recommend testing the product on your wood.Click Here to Order Samples

Please note that different lighting conditions in pictures can alter the appearance of colors so color choices should not be based on photos alone. We strongly recommend sampling on your specific wood type to determine color.
Proper wood prep is a critical first step to successful penetration of the Outlast Q8 Log Oil. Outlast Kleenstart Cleaner is the recommened cleaner prior to applying Outlast Q8 Log Oil. Kleenstart will clean mold and mildew and remove mill glaze. One quart makes 5-8 gallons and cleans up to 1200 square feet of surface area.
KleenStart is an oxygenated granular cleaner that mixes in hot or cold water. Mix it up, spray with a pump-up garden sprayer, leave it on for about 10 minutes, and rinse with a pressure washer. Kleenstart often does most of the scrubbing for you!

How Long Does Outlast Q8 Log Oil Last?
Outlast recommends that on vertical surfaces the Outlast Q8 Log Oil should be re-applied within 24 months of the initial application. Additional applications should be applied as needed, which is typically every 4-8 years. Horizontal surfaces such as decks should be re-treated every other year or annually if needed. Variables such as sun exposure will impact the re-application time.
Preparing the Surface
Great Preparation is the Key to Application Success!
Q8 Log Oil penetrates and protects. The surface must be porous free of mill glaze, dirt, and previous coatings. Outlast Kleenstart is recommended prior to the initial application of Q8 Log Oil and subsequent applications. The better the preparation of the wood the longer the Q8 Log Oil treatment will last.
Wood preservatives are toxic to wood damaging organisms like termites, powder post beetles, and fungus.
Q8 Log Oil is an EPA approved wood preservative so applications of a borate treatment is not necessary prior to applying Q8 Log Oil.
Wood preservatives do not protect against non wood eating insects. Ants, cockroaches, beetles, mites, spiders, fleas, ticks, silverfish, dirt daubers, bees and wasps will not crawl on, nest on or burrow through coatings treated with NBS 30 Additive.
Mold, Mildew, and Algae
Q8 Log Oil alone stops decay, mold, and fungi. Use Outlast Mold-Buster when additional protection is required to control surface mold, mildew, and algae growth on the coating. It is recommended for use with coatings applied in high humidity environments and for applications where mildew has been a problem in the past.
Applying Q8 Log Oil
Outlast Q8 Log Oil can be applied during a wide range of weather conditions. Q8 Log Oil will not penetrate as well on wet or cold logs/wood. Below 50 degrees, Q8 Log Oil will become too thick to pump through a pump sprayer and may require hand brushing. Streaking of pigment may result if it rains within 36 hours of treatment. Simply re-spray the surface with more product, let it sit for 15 minutes and smooth out any streaks with a stiff paintbrush. Apply as much Q8 Log Oil as the wood will absorb. Clean tools with dish detergent and warm water or mineral spirits.
Caulking and Chinking
As wood dries it is natural for cracking and checking to occur. It is recommended to fill any gaps larger that 1/4" with caulk. Cracks/checks less than 1/4" should be flooded with Q8 Log Oil.
If applying a sealant after Q8 Log Oil wait for it to cure which is 2+ weeks prior to caulking/chinking. Curing time can vary with weather conditions. Q8 Log Oil can cure in 2 weeks with many warm and dry days. Low temperatures, humidity, and wet weather can lengthen the cure time.
When time does not allow for proper curing time, the caulking/chinking should be done prior to applying Q8 Log Oil.
Samples and Testing
We always recommended performing a 1 coat color test. Samples are available for color testing. Wait 24 hours after applying a Q8 Log Oil sample before observing the color. The color will lighten as the product dries.
