Description

Due to certain legislation changes the manufacturer of this product has temporarily removed it from sale until further notice - In the meantime we can recommend Sikagard Universal 5 Star Wood Treatment as a potential alternative.

NEW Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star is a penetrating wood preservative based on powerful fungicide and insecticide for use against wood destroying fungi (including dry rot) and wood destroying insects. 

Active ingredients

Permethrin 0.186%
Propiconazole 0.93%

This product is registered with the HSE (product registration 10089). Solvent: Odourless Kerosene

Benefits of the NEW Formula:

  • Same performance as before, ie protects against wet rot, dry rot, blue staining and wood boring insects.
  • Still contains Permethrin & Propiconazole
  • Still solvent based, but it is now a low odour solvent.
  • Improved colour strength
  • New product can be spray applied (The old formula was only for spray application by professionals)
  • Can now be used for interior applications providing they are well ventilated.
  • Coverage rate 3-8m²/application

Reason for Change

The change is NOT due to a raw material ban or withdrawal, it relates to the way biocides used in the formulation (Permethrin & Propiconazole) are registered, this has changed from National to European Biocidal Regulations.

Recommended Uses

  • Sheds
  • Fences
  • Floorboards
  • Roofing timbers
  • Joists

Preparation

Shake container vigorously prior to use. Ensure wood is clean, dry and free from surface contamination. If wood is not dry Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star will not be able to penetrate and performance may be affected.

Application

Product can be applied by brush, immersion or spray (see precautions). Apply 1 litre of product per 3-8 square metres of timber surface. Immerse for a minimum of 3 minutes. Do not dilute.

Eradication of Wet Rot

Remove source of dampness. Cut away all decayed timber and replace affected timber with sound timber treated with Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star. Also apply Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star to surrounding timber areas.

Eradication of Dry Rot

Remove source of dampness. Remove all affected wood and hack off all affected plaster, stonework etc. back to one metre beyond the attack. Sterilise all infected areas, walls, ground etc. Replace affected timber with sound timber treated with Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star. Also apply Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star to surrounding timber areas.

Wood Boring Insects

Apply 1 litre of product per 3-8 square metres of timber surface. Apply by brush, immersion or spray. Immerse for a minimum of 3 minutes. Do not dilute.

Drying Time

Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star Will be dry within 24 hours under good drying conditions. Drying time may be prolonged in cold, damp weather. Allow to dry thoroughly before overcoating. Wood in ground contact i.e. fence posts should be soaked in Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star for a minimum of 1 hour, timbers with higher cross sectional areas may take longer.

Clean Up

Reseal container after use. Remove as much product as possible from equipment before washing with white spirit.

From August 2017 Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star DARK BROWN has been enhanced - Please note that the colour could vary from the previous tins produced prior to August 2017 and we recommend you check the suitability of colour on a cut off of timber or inconspicuous area.

Question: 

Can I paint over it as if it were used as an undercoat? If so, should I use an oil or water-based fence paint? Will its effectiveness be impaired by painting over it?

Answer: 

You can apply a paint or woodstain over Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star, if you have used clear then you should be applying a coating of some sort over the top to seal it in anyway, (the clear is not a stand-alone product). If the preserver has only recently been applied then a solvent based fence paint will be advisable, if it has been on for a few months and has weathered then either an oil or water based top coat could be applied. A top coat will not affect the performance of the coating.

Question:

Answer: 

Jotun Pioner Topcoat can be applied over compatible primers or existing coatings. Please download and read the Product Data Sheet and Application Guide for full details. If the surface is bare mild steel then Jotun Pilot QD Primer can be used to prime first.

questions nick on 2017-01-30 10:35:12
Question: Hi Does this kill of woodworm and subsequently protect from woodworm
Answer: 

Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star DOES protect against woodworm. It doesn’t soak all the way into a piece of timber to kill the beetles, it kills them when they eat their way out of the timber. (This is part of the natural life cycle of the beetles). Any beetles that land on the timber to eat their way into it will also be killed. The insecticide in the preserver is poisonous when ingested by wood boring insects.

Question: 

Is Blackfriar Wood Preservative Gold Star safe to use on the outside of a shed with birds inside?

Answer: 

The product would only affect the birds while wet, so as long as the birds aren't able to get to the Blackfriar Wood Preservative Gold Star while it is still wet then it won't affect them.
