BIOCHECK SILK EMULSION PAINT
BIOCHECK FUNGICIDAL SILK EMULSION was developed over 40 years ago to eradicate black mould problems in severe condensation situations and prevent their return. Since then Biocheck is now specified and successfully used by Local Authorities, Housing Associations, private landlords, universities, MOD and private householders throughout the country.
BIOCHECK FUNGICIDAL SILK EMULSION has been tested by the Building Research Advisory Service and shown to be completely resistant to colonization and growth of mould and can be expected to perform well on surfaces prone to condensation.
BIOCHECK FUNGICIDAL SILK EMULSION is available in 2.5 litre and 5 litre tins and in the following colours: - White, Magnolia, Rose White, Apple White, Pale Green, Autumn White, Pale Blue, Buttermilk, China Blue and Sugared Almond. The emulsion is available in both Matt and Silk finish, it is recommended to use in kitchens and bathrooms.
All surfaces infected with mould growth MUST first be treated in accordance with MGC’s Specification for the Eradication of Mould prior to the application of Biocheck with RLT BACTDET 05 and RLT HALOPHEN. BIOCHECK SILK EMULSION PAINT is approved by the Health and Safety Executive under the Control of Pesticides Regulations (C.O.P.R.) 1986 (as amended) for both amateur and professional use.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE ERADICATION OF MOULD
This is a 3-stage treatment. All stages must be strictly adhered to.
Stage 1: RLT BACTDET 05 - cleans the surface and kills all visible signs of mould.
Stage 2: RLT HALOPHEN - forms a barrier to prevent mould infection in the fabric re-infecting the surface.
Stage 3: BIOCHECK PAINTS - fungicidal decorative finish and MGC FUNGICIDAL ADDITIVES for incorporation into wallpaper paste.
STAGE 1 - ERADICATION OF MOULD - RLT BACTDET 05
1. Wash down mould infected surfaces with RLT BACTDET 05 diluted with 4 parts of warm water using a brush, sponge or cloth. Extend treatment one metre in all directions beyond all visible signs of infection. When the solution becomes dirty make up a fresh one. Coverage must not exceed 10 square metres per diluted litre.
To affected carpets, roll back carpet and wash down floor surface with RLT BACTDET 05 solution. Spray the underside of carpets with RLT CLEARMOULD SPRAY and allow to fully dry before re-laying.
WALLPAPERED SURFACES - wash down with RLT BACTDET 05 solution prior to stripping. Bag up wallpaper, seal and remove from the premises immediately. Wash infected area again with a clean solution of RLT BACTDET 05.
This stage is essential as RLT BACTDET 05 will kill all mould spores and prevent them spreading to other areas.
Prepare surfaces in accordance with good trade practice. Scrape off all loose or flaking paint and rub down to a sound surface.
Etch previously gloss painted surfaces with glasspaper to form a key.
All preparation work must be done before the barrier, RLT HALOPHEN, has been applied.
STAGE 2 - APPLICATION OF FUNGICIDAL BARRIER - RLT HALOPHEN
3. Apply by brush 1 coat of RLT HALOPHEN diluted with 4 parts of clean water. Extend the treatment at least one metre beyond the areas of infection in all directions and allow to dry. Coverage must not exceed 10 square metres per diluted litre.
Brush RLT HALOPHEN well in for maximum penetration. Pay special attention to corners and junctions.
In areas of heavy infection apply a second coat and allow to dry before proceeding to Stage 3.
3a. STAINING AND/OR EFFLORESCENCE - Apply by brush one liberal coat of MGC Stain Block to seal the surface and prevent any bleeding through prior to decoration.
STAGE 3 - DECORATIVE FINISH
4. EMULSION - Apply 2 coats of BIOCHECK Matt or Silk Emulsion by brush or roller at a coverage of approximately 12 square metres per litre per coat. The first coat may be diluted with 10% clean water. It is recommended that Silk is used in kitchens and bathrooms.
WALLPAPER FINISH - add 2 MGC FUNGICIDAL ADDITIVES per 5 litres of paste or size and mix well in. For embossed and lining papers incorporate MGC FUNGICIDAL ADDITIVES into paste, then apply 2 coats of BIOCHECK Matt or Silk Emulsion as above.
GLOSS FINISH - for woodwork, metal windows, etc.
Clean down, as described in Stage (1), to remove any mould contamination. Rub down previously painted surfaces with glasspaper to form a good key.
Apply 2 finishing coats of BIOCHECK WATER BASED GLOSS to all general surfaces. Bare surfaces should be primed with one coat of BIOCHECK WATER BASED GLOSS.
1. It is recommended that when treating external walls, the entire wall(s) is treated, extending back into the room a minimum of one metre on the ceiling and adjacent walls/partitions. This will eliminate the possibility of other isolated areas of the same wall(s) being infected at a later date.
2. The use of woodchip paper is not recommended.
