Buffalo, NY—U-C Coatings, LLC, headquartered here, a manufacturer of wood protection products, is introducing Fence Guard® Stain Concentrate, an innovative new wood fence stain from its Eco Chemical division in Seattle, WA. 

Fence Guard is a concentrated water-based alkyd stain designed specifically for wood fences. It’s available in 1.5 gallon and 5-gallon sizes in Natural Cedar, Expresso, Cocoa Brown and Western Redwood. These semi-transparent colors satisfy the majority of market color preferences. The concentrate is mixed with two parts water to make a ready-to-use stain. This offers customers the equivalent of 15 gallons of working stain solution from one 5-gallon pail of concentrate.  

 Fence Guard Stain Concentrate can be used on any residential or commercial softwood fence installation, old or new, including cedar, SPF and pressure treated wood. Fence Guard provides the superior protection and beauty of a penetrating alkyd oil stain with high quality oxide pigments for lasting color, according to a company spokesperson. Once blended with water, the resulting ultra-low VOC stain working solution is easily applied using a brush, roller, pump sprayer or airless sprayer to achieve uniform color and coverage.

Fence Guard’s concentrated formulation offers exceptional convenience and economy, according to the spokesperson.  Rather than charging fence customers for water, this new product provides the concentrated ingredients of a high-quality stain that can be more conveniently stored and transported. Fence Guard’s attractive alkyd finish rivals that of oil-based stains, with a water-based formula for easier preparation and application, the company spokesperson stated.  Clean-up from any overspray on the job is much easier than with an oil-based product, and the risk of claims or call backs is greatly reduced. Fence Guard also delivers on economy, with a lower applied cost per square foot than most oil-based stains.

Fence Guard Stain Concentrate reflects U-C Coating’s 50 years of experience in developing innovative specialty coatings, drawing on Eco Chemical’s leadership in wood stain formulating.  U-C Coatings wood protection products are used in a variety of industries, including softwood and Hardwood lumber production, logging, wood products manufacturing, fencing, woodworking and wood decking markets.
