Precautionary Notes

  • Always read statutory conditions relating to use before starting any work. 
  • Ensure good ventilation before applying and after application until the treatment has dried (HSE statutory 1 hour re-entry time or until surfaces are dry) 
  • Drying times will be extended in cold weather and if ventilation is restricted. 
  • Avoid contact with skin and eyes, 
  • Remove any splashes immediately. 
  • Clean up spills immediately (to avoid staining) with warm soapy water. 
  • In roof areas, felt under tiles must be protected from contact with the fluid. 
  • Roof insulation’s must be removed and only replaced when treated timbers are thoroughly dry. Water storage tanks must be covered.
  • When treating flooring and joists, boards should be left up for as long as possible to assist ventilation/drying. 
  • Switch off electrical circuits in the area being treated before and for 48 hours after treatment. 
  • PVC covered electrical wiring will not normally be affected, but we recommend wiping any excess from cables wherever possible.

Surface Preparation

Ensure that surfaces are clean, and free from paint varnish, stain, grease, bark or any other contaminants. Surfaces may be damp. If decay is already present, remove all decayed wood and replace with sound treated timber.

Application

  • Shake well before use. 
  • Apply by brush, spray or dipping. 
  • Apply a minimum of two coats if brushing or spraying. 
  • The second coat should be applied after the first coat has dried. 
  • Pay close attention to thoroughly soaking the end grain. 
  • For maximum protection where possible, dip the end grains of the timber for a minimum of 3 minutes.
