A general purpose preserver for the protection of sound wood against rot, decay, mould and staining fungi. It is suitable for use on all sound timbers including structural timbers and joinery, and may be used indoors and outdoors. Can be painted, stained, varnished or polished when dry.
- Long lasting protection.
- Deep penetrating.
- Does not affect colour of wood when dry.
- Can be painted, stained, varnished or polished when dry.
4-5 sq metres per litre depending on situation.
1-5 days under average temperatures with good ventilation. Drying time will be longer under less favourable conditions.
After the previous coat has soaked into the timber.
Brush and dip.
Do not thin.
Before treatment wood should be clean, free from bark, dirt and any surface treatment such as paint or varnish, air dry (25% moisture content maximum), properly prepared and fully worked.
Brush - Flood all surfaces, paying particular attention to end-grain and joints to ensure maximum protection. Apply two liberal coats before the previous coat is dry. The more preserver is used, the better is the protection achieved.
Dip - Submerge the end of the timber in the preserver for the recommended period (see below).
Immersion (Professional users only) - Completely submerge the wood in an open tank of preserver, keeping the wood beneath the surface of the fluid for a minimum period of 3 minutes. Where the decay hazard is greater a longer immersion time is necessary (eg 10 minutes). This method ensures that all surfaces of the wood receive treatment and large quantities of timber can be treated easily.
Use pretreated timber if timber is for use in ground contact.
During application avoid spilling or splashing onto surrounding areas since stains can be difficult to remove. Clean with white spirit followed by soap and water.
