Surface preparation before  treatment

Wood moisture content must not exceed 20%. Perform application at the temperature above 5 °C and relative humidity up to 80%. Clean the surface thoroughly from dirt, grease and dust. The wood must not be damaged by mould and algal growth. Use the wood cleaning agent WoodClean or anti-mould agent Biotol E to pre-treat the surfaces damaged with blue stain or mould. We recommend priming the surface with Biostop primer before applying the product. Clean previously painted surfaces completely, using a scraper, a stiff brush, a heat gun or varnish remover OPS Pro. Remove the darkened areas of the wood mechanically, using a stiff brush, and replace dead wood. Use galvanised fasteners for fastening the treated wooden parts. We do not recommend performing the application in direct sunlight or at high temperatures. Please pay attention to the constructional methods of protecting wooden surfaces: good waterproofing of walls and the roof, water drainage and ventilation. The result of using wood protection products depends on the adequate use of constructional methods of the protection of wooden surfaces.
