Paint Your Fencing With Cromar Green Wood Preserver

Cromar Green Wood Preserver can be used to protect construc­tional timber, fences etc. against fungal attack. It is suitable for use on timbers in the horti­cul­tural industry such as greenhouses and interal staging, cold frames and plant supports. It can also be used to preserve hessian and netting. Treated timber can be overpainted at a later date preferably using an aluminium based primer, if light preservation then Cromar Woodworm + Dry Rot Killer should be used.

Preparation: Ensure that the timber to be treated is fully dry and that paint or varnish will not restrict penetration. Replace rotted timber, cutting back to sound areas. Cure sources of dampness and treat dry rot (and surrounding areas) on brickwork and masonry with two coats of Cromar Woodworm + Dry Rot Killer.

N.B: Be sure to read all conditions relating to use and safety listed on the container before commencing work.

Application: Before start, ensure that the cap is firm and shake container vigorously to thoroughly mix contents. Apply to the prepared surface two liberal coats of Cromar Wood Preserver (chosen colour or type) by brush or low-pressure spray, ensuring saturation of joints and end grain. Alter­natively dip for 10-15 minutes. If timber is to be used below ground level, the dipping time should be increased to one hour or three brush coats should be used. Sufficient time should be allowed between coats to permit penetration of the preserver, before applying next coat.

N.B: Please note that the final colour, when dry, will depend of the type of wood to which it is applied and whether any previous application of coloured preservative or Creotreat has been made. In such instances, we recommend a test area to ensure that the finished result is acceptable.
