WOODTREAT LTF is an inexpensive general-purpose solvent-based preservative for exterior timber applications such as posts, poles, retaining walls, fences, underfloor framing, engineering and rural structures.
WOODTREAT LTF is intended for exterior aboveground application. For use in areas such as under-floor framing and bearers, good ventilation should be provided to prevent excessive odour accumulation. In exposed conditions at least two coats should be applied for best protection. Best results are obtained on rough sawn or natural round timbers. Use on dressed timbers is not recommended due to poor absorption and streaky surface finish that typically results. Normal brush-on application with WOODTREAT alone is not sufficient protection for timber in ground contact.
Better alternatives for ground contact protection are TWA IN-GROUND PASTE and/or ideally use of pressure treated timber (CCA , Tanalith-E or ACQ ). The treatment with WOODTREAT should be done every 3-5 years for exposed timber (unless heavy weathering indicates more frequent application is required) and every 5-10 years tor unexposed timber.
The product should be or stirred for a short time until uniform consistency. Surface preparation Generally very little surface preparation of the actual timber is required. Clean away any dirt or vegetation adhering the surface. Best results are obtained on rough sawn or natural round timbers.
WOODTREAT-LTF may be applied by brush, rollers or a spray gun. The product should be applied generously, with particular attention to endgrain joints and interfaces. Initially, after application the product will be a light green colour. In fine warm weather this will darken. The WOODTREAT will continue to be absorbed by the timber for 2-3 days. In cool weather this process may be considerably slower. Do not apply if rain is expected within 12 hours. The surface will be fully dry after about one week’s exposure: Contact with the timber should be avoided during this time. The surface will be nongreasy or oily but will remain slightly soiling on skin or clothes. One litre will cover 6 – 8 square metres depending on the surface conditions of the timber. Clean up equipment with mineral turps immediately
