Surface Preparation

  • All areas to be coated should be clear of dirt and debris


  • Apply ANCHORSEAL 2 using a brush, roller or sprayer until it begins to drip slightly
  • For optimal coverage, use a gas engine, electric, air operated or backpack sprayer from U·C Coatings
  • If using spray equipment other than those sold by U·C Coatings, use 0.21”/0.55 mm tip or larger
  • Logs larger than 24”/60 cm in diameter will require a heavier coating, or two coats must be applied within a 15 minute period
  • If applying to the cut ends of deck boards: apply ANCHORSEAL 2 carefully with a thin brush or sponge applicator. To avoid potential staining, do not allow ANCHORSEAL 2 to get on the face of the boards.

Cleanup & Storage

  • Clean application equipment using hot soapy water
  • Store unused ANCHORSEAL 2 above 50°F/10°C to prevent freezing. Winterized formulas will protect against freeze damage
