Wet & Dry Rot Treatment
Surprisingly dry rot only occurs in damp wood; generally in timber having greater than 20% moisture content. The most important part of any dry rot treatment is to remove the source of the excess moisture. Once this has been done affected timbers can be cut out and adjacent woodwork can be treated using this dual purpose wood preservative containing both fungicide and insecticide in a pre-mixed micro-emulsion concentrate.
This professional timber preservation kit is ideal for protecting wood from fungal decay such as wet and dry rot, following the elimination of moisture contamination, and for the eradication of woodworm infestation in building timbers; it comprises:
- 6 x 1L containers of Lignum Pro D156 fungicide/ insecticide concentrate; to be diluted according to its intended use
- 1 x 25L mixing/ storage tub
- 1 x 7L spray unit (5L working capacity) complete with professional brass lance and adjustable spray nozzle
Lignum Pro D156 is a multi-purpose wood preservative with fungicide and insecticide components. It is formulated with micro-emulsion technology and has an extremely small particle size, which is in the nanometre range. This allows the active ingredients to penetrate deep into timber in order to deliver protection against a wide range of wood rotting fungi including both wet rot and dry rot and to deliver effective treatment of wood boring insect infestation.
