    Standard Product Features

    Preparation:

    – Dry rot:

    • Reduce water penetration.
    • Expose full extent of outbreak with additional margin of clearance.
    • Remove all timber elements from affected area and dispose by burning. Where impractical to remove timbers, consult Wykamol Technical Department.

    – Exterior lichen:

    • Remove all organic material by cleaning methods appropriate to substrate. If resistant, may require abrasion using wire brush before treatment.

    – Exterior moss:

    • Remove all organic material by cleaning methods appropriate to substrate.

    Application:

    – General:

    • Apply when surfaces are dry.
    • Exclude unprotected persons and animals for at least 48 hours after application.

    – Half brick walls or cavity walls:

    • Treat by generous low pressure spray application to both faces.

    – Single brick walls:

    • Drill at 225 mm staggered centres, with holes to centre of wall, angled downwards 30–45º.
    • Treat by injection together with surface application.

    – Cavity walls:

    • Treat by generous low pressure spray application to all faces, including cavity.

    – Exterior surfaces:

    • Remove all organic material by cleaning methods appropriate to substrate.
    • Apply in windfree conditions to minimize spray drift.
    • Allow 1–7 days before brushing or power hosing to remove organic material.
    • Apply second coat Aqua-Tech Masonry Biocide.
    • Regular reapplication may be necessary.
    • Active life of treatment may be reduced on surfaces subject to mechanical wear, surfaces with low absorption, surfaces with dirt accumulation, persistently damp surfaces. NBS Specification
