The substrate must be clean, dry and free from contamination; remove existing coatings by stripping or sanding. Moisture content should be 20% or less. It is recommended that a sample of the substrate is coated to establish both absorption properties and possible colour change.


Flametect CWD. may be applied to wood by spray , brush or roller.

The desired absorption rate for most woods & MDF is typically 4 square metres per litre

The absorption rate by other timber based products ( plywood, strand board etc. ) is less as adhesives & bonding agents prevent total absorption

Where multiple coats are required please allow approximately 1 hour between coats

When applied externally please either protect from the elements or where possible opt for a dry 24 -48 hour application / drying period


If treated timber is to be over-coated we recommend testing a small area first before fully over-coating with varnish, stain or paint. Care should be taken that the fire retardant properties are not compromised,


A minimum of 1 hour between coats. Full drying time approximately 24 hours at +20ºc / 65 relative humidity.


Once the treatment has been absorbed into the surface of the substrate and dried, it will last for the useful life of the substrate.
