Active Ingredients:

Permethrin 20% w/w

Permethrin is a synthetic neurotoxin that belongs to the pyrethroid family, used in pest control. In the case of woodworm treatment, such as Woodguard Insecticide, it works by disrupting the nervous system of the larvae of wood-boring beetles when they ingest treated wood. The affected larvae eventually die, halting the infestation cycle. This formulation of Permethrin (20% w/w) is designed to be potent against woodworms yet safe for application on timber, when used as directed.

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 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 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.

 

Re-Entry Time:

WoodGuard 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.
