DIRECTIONS FOR USE- Ecobor 20 Timber Preservative
Treatment of wood boring insects and fungal decay in timber:
1. Clean all wooden surfaces using a brush or vacuum cleaner.
2. To aid brushing out on any timbers, which are very dry or remain dusty, spray or brush a little water to the surface before the application of ACS Ecobor 20.
3. Apply a generous brush coat of ACS Ecobor 20, taking care to ensure that end grains, corners and joints are well treated. Brush apply to any surfaces exposed by cutting after initial treatment.
4. Brush the ACS Ecobor 20 well into the surface taking care not overload the brush with the product, particularly on overhead, horizontal faces.
5. ACS Ecobor 20 may be used in outdoor conditions provided that the timber treated is then protected from weathering by an appropriate coating or sealant.
6. As a surface application the gel will not penetrate through paint, varnishes or other coatings and these should be removed before treatment. ACS Ecobor 20 can be injected through predrilled holes in areas where paint and coatings cannot be removed.
7. Clean all tools, brushes and equipment with water.
For masonry sterilization (dry rot, algae and mould fungi)
1. Clean down surface to remove any loose or flaking material and loose organic growth.
2. Apply one liberal coat of ACS Ecobor 20 and allow the product to penetrate the masonry.
3. If treating dry rot outbreaks, apply ACS Ecobor 20 to the reverse face any new timber, such as skirting and architrave before fixing.
By brush : 1 litre to 2 – 2.5 m2 of timber surface Large dimensional timbers may need more than one coat or additional treatment with Ecobor 40 Paste.
By injection : Apply as necessary or until refusal through predrilled holes.
