The Organowood rot and flame protection is the first part of the the Organowood next generation system and is designed to provide a barrier of silicon molecules and so give the wood protection against rot and fungus whilst also having the added advantage as a flame retardant. 01 Protection is the first component in the system and is composed of silicon minerals and natural plant compounds. It provides the surface treatment for absorbing wood and wooden products. Once applied the wood will retain its natural colour initially but then age and take on an even silvery grey patina over time. Please click here for the 02 Repellent.
Areas of use:
Organowood is suitable for softwoods, pressure treated softwoods, European hardwoods, (pressure treated & hardwoods must be weathered for a minimum of 12 weeks), MDF, plywood and masonite board. Typical locations are exterior timber cladding, decking, fencing, sheds and garden furniture. Please note that Organowood is not suitable for exotic oil rich timbers where it can not be absorbed.
A litre of the 01 Protection will cover approximately 8 - 10m².
Untreated wood should be cleaned with a suitable wood cleaning product such as Organowood 03 Organic Wood Cleaner. Wood that has previously been oiled or painted will need to be sanded back and allowed to weather if appropiate before application.
It should be applied to dry timber at a minimum of 10°C when there is a low risk of rain, dew or frost during its drying period. The product can react with glass, therefore special care should be made to protect any glass from splashes or runs.
Apply along the grain of the wood using a brush or roller and allow to dry for 6-10 hours. Once dry it should be overcoated with Organowood 02 Repellent, please see its listing for further details.
