The modern, energy-efficient log home was born.

Over the next 35 years, Perma-Chink Systems has firmly rooted itself as the premier provider of cutting-edge log home sealants, wood stains and finishes, and maintenance products. There are myriad reasons why log home manufacturers, builders, and homeowners around the world count on Perma-Chink Systems – we present the top 12:

  • Store away from windows and direct sunlight.
  • Store away from heaters or forced air vents.

  • Store in a controlled temperature environment (50o - 70o F, 10o - 21o C)

Shelf life of a full unopened container is three years (no contamination from potential airborne contaminants). Product from opened containers should be repackaged into smaller plastic containers sized to be ‘full’ of product.
