Wood Preserver ++ Application Guide
Protek Wood Preserver ++ is a water-based ready-to-use preservative. It contains active ingredients effective against moulds, wood destroying and wood discolouring fungi as well as against wood boring insects. It penetrates wood easily and thereby gets deep into inner layers. It is moisture regulating and provides an adhesive surface for subsequent treatment with finishing paints or stains (top coat). It has low VOCs and after drying is odourless.

4-6 hrs under normal conditions (20oC/65% rel. humidity). Low temperatures, increased humidity and matrix characteristic may increase drying time. Allow a minimum of 24 hours drying time under normal conditions before application of a top coat.
Clean tools immediately after use with warm soap water, subsequently rinse with clear water or use commercial brush cleaner. Subsequent surface treatment: Treated surfaces must be coated with a suitable finishing paint (top coat). Apply the final top coat directly after drying of the primer on the surface.

European Waste Code (EWC)-Code 03 02 02: organochlorinated wood preservative. 20 01 27: Municipal wastes (household waste and similar commercial, industrial and institutional wastes) including separately collected fractions: paint, inks, adhesives and resins containing dangerous substances. Wood preservatives contain biocidal active ingredients to protect wood against pests. They must be applied according to the instructions for use and only in those cases where protective measures are necessary and where they pose no practical risk to man. They should generally not be used in living or recreational areas. They must not be applied to wood which is likely to come into prolonged contact with the skin or to wood which comes into direct contact with food and feedstuffs.
The precautions generally recommended for handling wood protection products should be observed, e.g. wearing of protective clothing, safety goggles and protective gloves (e.g. nitrile rubber gloves). When using do not eat, drink, or smoke. Handle product and dry freshly treated wood in areas with good ventilation. Keep freshly treated wood roofed or otherwise protected against rain until complete dryness. Do not breathe sanding dust. Wash hands and exposed skin before meals and after use. Avoid release to the environment. Do not empty into drains. Do not allow this product to reach aquatic environments, the ground or the sewer system. Protect environment (e.g. soil, plants, aquatic environment) from splashes of product. Do not apply in damp conditions or if rain is imminent.
