Clean all wooden surfaces using a brush or vacuum cleaner.
To aid brushing out on any timbers which are very dry or remain dusty, apply a little water to the surface before the application of ProBor 20 Boron Gel.
Apply a generous brush coat of ProBor 20 Boron Gel, taking care to ensure that end grains, corners and joints are well treated. Brush apply to any surfaces exposed by cutting after initial treatment.
Brush the ProBor 20 Boron Gel well into the surface taking care not to overload the brush with product, particularly on overhead, horizontal faces.
ProBor 20 Boron Gel may be used in outdoor conditions provided that the timber treated is then protected from weathering by an appropriate coating or sealant.
As a surface application the gel will not penetrate through paint, varnishes or other coatings and these should be removed before treatment. ProBor 20 Boron Gel can be injected through predrilled holes in areas where paint and coatings cannot be removed.
Clean all tools, brushes and equipment with water
By Brush: 1 litre to 2m² - 3m² of timber surface. Large dimensional timbers may need more than one coat or additional treatment with ProBor 50 Injection Paste.
