Active Ingredients:

Permethrin 10.0% w/w

Permethrin is a synthetic chemical that acts as a neurotoxin, primarily targeting the nervous systems of insects. It's a member of the pyrethroid family, which are synthetic analogs of naturally occurring pyrethrins found in chrysanthemum flowers. Permethrin affects sodium ion channels in the nerve cells of insects, causing paralysis and death, making it very effective against woodworm beetles and their larvae, which bore into wood. Its use in woodworm treatment solutions helps to eliminate existing infestations and provides a residuals effect that can deter future attacks.

Propiconazole 10.0% w/w

Propiconazole is a triazole fungicide that inhibits the biosynthesis of ergosterol, an essential component of fungal cell membranes. This disruption impedes the growth and reproduction of fungi, making it an effective agent against a wide range of wood-rotting fungi, including those responsible for wet and dry rot. By penetrating treated wood, propiconazole provides long-lasting protection against fungi, helping to preserve the integrity and strength of the wood.

IPBC (3-Iodo-2-Propynyl Butyl Carbamate) 10.0% w/w

IPBC is a broad-spectrum fungicide that works by interfering with cell division and growth in fungi, ultimately leading to their death. It is particularly effective against mould, mildew, and stain fungi, which are common issues in timber. IPBC is valued in the protective coatings industry for its ability to extend the service life of wood by preventing fungal decay. Additionally, it has low toxicity to humans and is often utilised in various products, including paints, stains, and preservation treatments.

Combined Role in Eradicating Woodworm and Preventing Fungal Decay

When these three active ingredients are combined, they create a robust dual-action treatment that targets both insect infestations and fungal decay. Permethrin effectively eradicates active woodworm infestations and deters new ones through its insecticidal properties. Propiconazole provides deep-seated control against fungal organisms responsible for wood rotting, while IPBC offers additional protection against a variety of wood-decaying fungi and surface moulds.

Together, the combined properties of these active ingredients offer comprehensive protection for timber; they work synergistically to extend the life of wood by eliminating existing infestations, preventing the establishment of new insects and fungal growth, and preserving the timber against future degradation. The result is timber that is more resistant to the common causes of damage and decay, ensuring its structural integrity and appearance over time.

Health & Safety Recommendations:

Take the usual labour hygiene into account.

PPE should be worn during application. See our Safety & PPE Products.

Consult label and material safety data sheet for more information.

 

Surface Preparation:

Before application, it is essential to ensure that the wood surface is clean and free from wood dust and other contaminants. Any debris or dirt should be removed to allow for optimal penetration and effectiveness of the treatment.

 

Application Method:

WoodGuard Dual Fungicide / Insecticide can be applied using a brush or through a low-pressure spray system, offering flexibility in application for both small and large surface areas.

The application process should be carried out in accordance with safety guidelines and instructions provided by the manufacturer to ensure maximum efficacy.

 

Coverage:

WoodGuard Dual Fungicide / Insecticide should be applied at a rate of 250 - 333ml/m² (1L per 3 - 4m²) once diluted.

This coverage rate ensures thorough and effective treatment of the wood surface, penetrating the material to reach woodworm larvae and beetles, and providing robust protection against infestations and fungal attack.

 

Re-Entry Time:

WoodGuard Dual Fungicide / Insecticide is designed with a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statutory 1-hour re-entry time, ensuring that the treated area can be re-entered safely after the application.

This feature adds to the convenience of application in various settings, allowing for minimal disruption to activities and ongoing operations.

 

Finish:

Upon application, the product does not alter the finish of the wood. It does not impart a specific finish, leaving a similar effect to the application of water or solvent.

As a best practice, it is recommended to test the product on a small, inconspicuous area before full application to ensure that the resulting finish aligns with expectations. This precaution helps to confirm the compatibility of the treatment with the specific wood surface, ensuring a satisfactory outcome.

 

Stability:

Product is stable in original packaging for 2 years when stored under ambient conditions. After 2 years product should be re-tested every 6 months to ensure active ingredient levels are within specification.
