Application Guide

Where Protek Wood Chip is supplied as a concentrate, care must be taken not to exceed the recommended dilution. Failure to observe this would adversely affect the level of protection, colour and penetration.

It is essential to allow an initial drying period to enable the bonding action of the coating to work. This period will vary according to the ambient humidity. If freshly coated timber is to be immediately exposed to inclement conditions then protection is necessary to allow the initial drying period to be complete.

Protek Wood Chip has a high resistance to frost damage but care should be taken to protect it from freezing. It is not recommended that it be applied to frozen timber.

For the best results the surface of the timber should not be contaminated with fungus or mould and should be free from mud, ice and bark. The moisture content should not exceed 28%. For best results apply to kiln dried timber.
