Wood stains

Hi! I just finished sanding the old wood stain from some wooden shutters and I applied a coat of this product as a primer:

"Long Life Wood Preservative"
Bondex | The Wood Protection Company

After that I am currently applying a coat of this wood stain:

"Matt Finish Wood Stain"
Bondex | The Wood Protection Company

I will probably apply two coats of the wood stain. I read somewhere that there is another product that I could apply over the wood stain. Is that a protective cover or is it finnish cover? I didnt read anything about it in the website of the product that I am using. Is it necessary or good for the wood to apply another product over the wood stain?
Many thanks

I've never used or heard of any of those coatings but I would think you would use one or the other - not one for a primer and the other for a finish.

While most interior wood stains require a top coat like polyurethane, exterior stains are formulated to protect as well as color and do not require a sealer.

The wood stain instructions say to use the protective cover first as a primer and then to apply the wood stain. But they dont say anything about putting a top coat over the wood stain.
I will probably skip the top coat and just apply the wood stain...
