Cabot Semi-Transparent Stains are deep penetrating, linseed oil-based
stains that beautify and protect exterior wood. These lightly pigmented
stains enhance the natural beauty of the wood by allowing the grain,
texture, and color variations within the wood to show through. They
are waterrepellent and, when properly applied, won’t crack, peel
or blister. Cabot Semi-Transparent Stains are for use on exterior wood
siding, shingles, shakes and roofs. They are especially effective on
rough-sawn surfaces; and excellent results are obtained on premium grade
lumber such as cedar, fir, pine, cypress, spruce, redwood and plywood
