Platinum Building Chemicals Ltd | Mould Control
The MCS Mould Eradication Kit is a full multipurpose kit providing the essential products required to held treat and eradicate Black Mould.
MCS1 Mould Clear Solution carries the HSE Approval No 9453; MCS3 Paint Additive carries the HSE Approval No 7656.
The Mould Control System (MCS) is a two stage treatment for walls, ceilings etc. affected by condensation mould. When both stages are completed, surfaces will exhibit excellent resistance to mould growth even under severe condensation conditions.
Typically, full control can be achieved for up to 5 years but this can be extended considerably where moisture control measures are implemented. Platinum Building Chemicals supply a wide variety of condensation control and mould control products to aid with mould eradication and treatment.
The MCS Mould Eradication Kit is supplied with the required Cleaning Solution (MCS1) and Paint Additive (MCS3), along with the recommended PPE equipment (masks, gloves etc.) to treat and clean mould issues in domestic properties.

MCS1 Mould Clear Solution (Ready to Use) - Contains: Acticide 50x 4.76% w/w. MCS3 Paint Additive - Contains: 3-Iodo-2-Propynyl-n-Butyl Carbamate 14.97% w/w.
Spray MCS1 Mould Clear Solution onto the affected surface from a distance of 3-5cm.
Treat visible mould PLUS 1 metre beyond. Repeat the treatment on badly affected areas after 10-15 minutes. Areas to be Treated:
Painted and Timber Areas - Spray the area thoroughly with the MCS1 Mould Clear Solution.
Papered Areas - Spray the paper. The MCS1 Mould Clear Solution acts as a biocide and stripping agent. Bag the mould contaminated paper and remove from the property. Treat the exposed plaster with a thorough spraying of MCS1 Mould Clear Solution.
General Preparation - Once the surface is dry, scrape off any loose flaking paint and rub down. Previously painted surfaces must be etched using sandpaper.
Coverage - The solution should cover approximately 12.5m².
Rub the surface using the sponge provided. Allow approximately 30 minutes for the product to work, then rinse with warm soapy water. Repeat the treatment if necessary.
MCS3 Paint Additive is specially formulated to protect decorative finishes from future mould attack. This should be mixed into emulsion paint, primer, undercoat, varnish, gloss, wallpaper paste, textured paint or tile adhesive.
Add 100ml of MCS3 Paint Additive to 5L of water based paint (emulsion, vinyl, silk or matt).
Add 50ml of MCS3 Paint Additive to 5L of solvent based paint (primer, undercoat or gloss).
Blend the Paint Additive for at least 1 minute or until fully dispersed. Apply the paint in accordance with the manufacturers instructions.
Important - Condensation is usually increasingly the main cause of mould. To reduce this underlying problem, ensure adequate ventilation throughout the property. In very extreme cases of mould other remedial measures may be required.
