New Stain: PPG ProLuxe

By JAY-K Lumber Paint Expert Sam Rudolph

Protecting your deck

JAY-K Lumber’s paint department is always striving to provide best-in-class products for every job. We’re proud to announce the addition of PPG ProLuxe (formerly known as Sikkens) products to our line-up.

Their well-known siding products, like the flagship Cetol 1 and Cetol 23 Plus, give you a rich, durable, sun- and weather-resistant finish with the soft luster that Sikkens—now ProLuxe—is known for. For excellent durability in a two-coat siding product, the Cetol Log and Siding gives you great film build and soft luster. For a single-coat product, ProLuxe offers the Cetol SRD. Cetol SRD is great to protect both decks and siding.

Why coat wood with ProLuxe? Your wood deck and siding surfaces are exposed to moisture, the sun’s UV light, and a wide range of temperatures. Each of these natural processes can affect the condition, appearance, and longevity of your wood surfaces. The longer your unprotected wood surfaces are exposed, the more damage the wood can experience. In as little as 4 weeks, newly installed unprotected wood can show signs of damage.

For siding and decking, ProLuxe Cetol SRD has high-transparency trans-oxide pigments and resins that penetrate into the wood and provide powerful, long-lasting UV protection, water repellency, and a mildew-resistant finish. For vertical wood surfaces, the ProLuxe Cetol Log and Siding, Cetol 1, and Cetol 23 provide the same protections with flexible resin technology for a great, long-lasting finish.

With any exterior wood project, preparation is essential. Stop in to JAY-K Lumber, and we can help you with the information, products, and tools that you’ll need to do the job right the first time.
