Active Ingredients:

Permethrin 0.34% w/w

Permethrin is a synthetic chemical that acts as an insecticide. It is part of the pyrethroid family, which are man-made versions of pyrethrins, natural insecticides derived from chrysanthemum flowers. Permethrin works by affecting the nervous system of insects that come into contact with it or ingest it, leading to paralysis and death. It is highly effective against a wide range of pests, including the larvae of wood-boring beetles known as woodworm. When used in woodworm treatment, it prevents larvae from maturing and emerging from the timber, thereby stopping the lifecycle of the insects and preventing further damage to the wood.

Propiconazole 0.85% w/w

Propiconazole is a broad-spectrum triazole fungicide that inhibits the growth of fungi by interfering with the biosynthesis of sterols, critical components of fungal cell membranes. By disrupting the production of these sterols, propiconazole weakens the fungal cell walls, preventing the fungi from developing and proliferating. This ingredient is particularly effective against wood-destroying fungi, including those that cause dry rot and wet rot. It helps protect the timber from further fungal decay and maintains the integrity of the wood.

IPBC (3-Iodo-2-Propynyl Butyl Carbamate) 0.40% w/w

IPBC, or 3-Iodo-2-Propynyl Butyl Carbamate, is a fungicide and biocide used in various products to protect against mould, mildew, and other forms of fungal decay. It is effective at low concentrations and has a broad spectrum of activity against fungi that can cause decay in timber. IPBC disrupts the enzymes within the fungal cells, preventing them from growing and reproducing. Due to its low water solubility, it has excellent longevity in the wood, ensuring prolonged protection.

Combined Role in Eradicating Woodworm and Preventing Fungal Decay:

When combined in Lignum Pro Gel Woodworm & Rot Treatment, these three active ingredients offer a powerful dual-action solution. Permethrin tackles the insect issue by eliminating woodworm larvae and preventing further infestation. Propiconazole and IPBC synergise to combat fungal decay, with propiconazole focusing on destroying the existing fungal cells and IPBC offering long-term preventative action against future fungal growth.

By integrating these three ingredients, Lignum Pro Gel ensures that the structural integrity of the timber is protected from both insects and fungi, preserving the wood and extending its usable life. The product is thus an all-in-one treatment, ideal for use in scenarios where both immediate and long-lasting protection is required.

The active ingredient in the formulation is sourced from and supplied by manufacturers who have supported the compound through the Biocidal Products Directive [98/8 EC] or more recently the Biocidal Products Regulations [528/2012] and in compliance with Article 95 of the Biocidal Products Regulation.

Lignum Pro Gel is being supported under the European Biocidal Products Regulation [528/2012]. Efficacy of this product has been proven to industry established and European standards.

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:

To achieve optimal results with Lignum Pro Gel, it's crucial to prepare the wood surface correctly before application.

Begin by ensuring the timber is clean and free of any contaminants that may impede the gel's adherence and effectiveness. Remove all traces of wood dust, debris, and pre-existing finishes like paint, varnish, or oil.

The timber should be dry and sound to allow for maximum penetration of the treatment.

 

Application Method:

Lignum Pro Gel offers a versatile application method tailored to different treatment needs.

For surface applications, use a brush to uniformly spread the gel across the timber, ensuring complete coverage.

For more profound infestations or areas requiring extensive penetration, the gel can be carefully injected into the timber at strategic points to deliver the treatment directly to the heart of the problem.

 

Coverage:

To calculate the amount of Lignum Pro Gel needed for your project, consider the following guidelines:

  • For preventative measures, use 100ml to 200ml per square meter, enabling one litre of the product to cover between 5 to 10 square meters of surface area.

  • For curative action, increase the application rate to 250ml per square meter, with one litre covering approximately 4 square meters.

  • When injecting, a dosage of 30Kg per cubic meter is recommended to ensure thorough saturation and effective treatment.

 

Drying:

After applying Lignum Pro Gel, restrict access to the treated area, keeping children, pets, and any unprotected individuals away from the surface. Allow sufficient drying time as per the manufacturer's instructions.

The drying duration may vary depending on environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity.

 

Finish:

Once it has dried, Lignum Pro Gel remains inconspicuous, preserving the wood's natural appearance without leaving any residual finish.

For peace of mind and to ensure satisfaction with the final product, it is advisable to perform a patch test in an inconspicuous area. This precautionary step will help you verify that the product meets your expectations for appearance and performance post-application.

 

Stability:

Lignum Pro Gel 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.
