Wykamol Microtech Biocide is a unique formulation for the control of dry rot in walls and the removal and prevention of moulds, algae, mosses and lichens.

Product Features:
Deeply penetrating
Can be applied to both wet and dry timber
Highly effective and dual purpose preservative
Easy application and virtually no wastage
Specially designed for application to large areas of timber

Wykamol Microtech Biocide is a multi purpose treatment containing 'Polyphase' (a carbonate fungicide), for fast action and excellent absorption rates into walls suffering from or vulnerable to dry rot, moulds, algae, mosses and lichens.
The unique micro-emulsion ensures Microtech Biocide diffuses into hard to reach places for an effective treatment of the masonry.

  • Can be applied to both wet and dry timber
  • Deeply penetrating
  • Specially designed for application to large areas of timber
  • Easy application and virtually no wastage
  • Can be used in conjunction with Wykabor 10.1
  • Semi-transparent, colourless gel
  • Highly effective and dual purpose preservative
  • Approved under The COPR 1986 for use as a wood preservative

Dry Rot Treatment:

PREPARATION: Rectify the defects contributing to the damp conditions which caused the outbreak (e.g. repair rain water drainage systems, roof leaks, tec. Improve sub-floor ventilation, install DPC). Expose the full extent of the outbreak, including a margin of clearance beyond the last visible signs of growth in all directions, remove all mycelium, built-in timber lintels, wall plates, bonding timbers and plugs from the affected walls and clearance areas and dispose of by burning. N.B. If it is considered impractical to remove all timber from infected walls etc., it may be possible to protect the in-situ depending on the precise conditions prevailing etc. For further advice,consult the Wykamol Technical Department.

Dilution - In a clean plastic drum add one litre of concentrate to 24 litres of clean water (makes 25 litres of final solution; rinse container prior to disposal). Once diluted, the Microtech Biocide solution remains stable for at least 7 days but should be agitated before use after lengthy storage. Drums of diluted material must be clearly labelled with the HSE number etc. Before starting work ensure the following statutory precautions are observed. Wear suitable protective clothing (coveralls) and synthetic rubber/PVC gloves plus eye protection when diluting or spraying overhead. Avoid excessive contamination of overalls and launder regularly. Cover water storage tanks before application. Do not breathe spray mist. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Do not contaminate watercourses or ground. Prevent any surface run-off from entering drains. Dispose of waste material or container safely.

APPLICATION: Walls
Walls should be treated in depth with diluted Microtech Biocide at the rate of 10 litres per m³ of brickwork masonry. 4.5” (115mm) brick walls can normally be treated by generous low pressure spray application (at 1 litre per 2m²) to both sides of the wall. Thicker walls will need to be drilled at approximately 230mm staggered intervals over the area to be treated (12-16mm drill bit). Holes should be angles downward between 30° and 45° to facilitate filling them with the treatment solution. When the walls are drilled from both sides, the depth of the hole should reach the centre of the wall. If the walls are drilled from one side only, the depth of the holes should extend to within approximately 50mm of the reverse face of the wall. Such treatments should be completed by surface application to both faces of the walls, although external walls need not be sprayed from the outside.

11” (280mm) cavity walls can be treated as two separate 4.5” (115mm) walls providing sufficient access at suitable intervals to the cavity has been made to ensure proper application of the Biocide to the faces of the brickwork exposed within the cavity. It should be ensured that the cavity is clear and where possible, ventilated. Local conditions, wall materials and type of construction would determine any variations which may be necessary to the suggested method of treatment to ensure the correct quantity of fluid (10 litres per m³) is evenly distributed within the mass of brickwork or masonry being treated.

Floors: Where the fungal growth has extended into the subfloor area below a timber ground floor structure, the base of the structural walls, sleeper walls and oversite of the affected area must also be treated with Microtech Biocide. Where the growth has penetrated a concrete oversite or subsoil it should be excavated and the exposed surface treated with Microtech Biocide solution. Note: areas below ground level (where sources of moisture cannot be isolated) may not be suitable for treatment using the above procedures.

EXTERNAL TREATMENTS: (algae/moss/lichens)
PREPARATION: In cases of severe moss build up on surfaces, remove as much as possible by physical means or break up the surface before proceeding as below. Observe the general precautions listed under DRY ROT TREATMENTS. Some species of lichens are resistant to treatment due to their impervious surface. To optimize the effect of the biocide solution it is advisable to abrade the face of such growths prior to treatment (e.g. by wire brush).

APPLICATION: Following dilution (see above), application can be either with a low pressure pneumatic sprayer (course spray) or by a watering can with a fine rose attachment. For small items such as headstones, etc.,Microtech Biocide solution may be applied by brush provided the solution is flooded generously into inscriptions and other cavities. Always direct the spray away from the body; do not spray directly overhead. For maximum effectiveness Microtech Biocide should be applied when surfaces are reasonably dry and when rain is not imminent. Treatment should take place in win free conditions to minimise spray drift. Once existing organic growth has been killed by initial application (1-7 days) this should be removed by brushing or power hosing followed by a second application of Microtech Biocide. In the case of roof treatments temporary wire netting guards should be provided over down pipes and the gutters cleared of dead moss, etc. once all the debris has been removed. Retreatment will be necessary at intervals to prevent growth becoming re-established. The life of treatments may be considerably shortened on a) surfaces subject to excessive mechanical wear b) very dense substrates which do not absorb much fluid c) surfaces where dirt etc. is allowed to accumulate d) persistently damp surfaces.

Note: We do not recommend the use of this product on asbestos cement surface due to the risk of fibre release and dispersal during cleaning.

TREATMENTS PRIOR TO PAINTING/MOULD CONTROL: 
PREPARATION AND APPLICATION: Removal of all organic growth from plaster and masonry surface is an essential pre-requisite for the successful performance of decorative coatings. For Exterior Coatings proceed as above. For interior work, most races of mould, algae, etc. should be removed initially by normal cleaning methods, followed by an application of Microtech Biocide solution. On relatively non-porous surfaces such as painted plaster or ceramic tiles the application rate can be reduced and the treating solution applied by fine mist spray. N.B. Mould etc. colonies can cause damage to underlying substrates (paint, wallpaper). Care should be taken to ensure damaged decorations are removed prior to treatments and/or new coatings being applied.

FINISHING: As soon as the surface is dry the decorative finish can be applied. Advice on suitable paints and their application can be obtained from the Wykamol Technical Department.
