Stop the Bleeding
Tannin bleed occurs when
the natural chemicals found
in wood are dissolved and carried
out by moisture, discoloring
the finish. By neutralizing
the tannic acid in wood, Clear
Tannin Guard keeps it from
bleeding or wicking through the
coating, according to the manufacturer.
The penetrating prestain
conditioner for exterior
wood is said to be sprayable and
to dry in two to four hours.
