EXTERIOR / INTERIOR

           All surfaces to be treated must be clean and dry. Thatch Safe is water-based, clear liquid that becomes insoluble when dry. Thatch Safe acts as a preservative, and water proofing agent ultra violet inhibibor, mold and mildew protector and repels insects. If over coating is intended, Thatch Safe is an excellent surface primer for use under latex paints or can be use as a finished coat overwater based stains.

DO NOT DILUTE OR MIX FIRE POLY 100 WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCTS.

         It should be noted that unlike some products, materials treated with Thatch Safe require no special cutting tools or special fasteners. Contact parts of any equipment should be stainless steel or plastic to prevent chemical reaction and breakdown. Storage may be done in polyethylene containers.

OVERSPRAY:

        The overspray will not harm plants or animals. Spills can be flushed with water. A rag wetted with   bleach and water mix will clean up spotting.


CLEAN UP PROCEDURE:

          Airless Equipment.

1. Run clear water through the system until coating is flushed out. When minor sudsing on surface stops, the system is flushed.

2. Run bleach and water mix (1 part to 4 parts) through system as solvent for cleaning any residue.

            3. Repeat Step 1 if any foaming occurs in Step 2.

            4. Lubricate system as specified by equipment manufacturer to combat rusting.

If two or more applications are planned in the same day, the sprayer can be kept clean by running water through the system between applications.


          Brushes/Rollers.

              1. Clean immediately after use.

              2. Wash thoroughly with bleach and water mix (1 part to 4 parts).


SAFETY FIRST

Use approved safety devices (ropes, belts, ridge hooks, ladder, etc.) When working on steep or high areas. Take EXTREME CARE not to step on wet treated area. Surface may be slick until dry.

It is good practice to wear respirator or mask and protect hands with rubber gloves when spraying any coating or chemical. When engineered air control is not feasible, use properly maintained and properly fitted NIOSH approved respirator for solvent vapors. A dusk mask does not provide protection against vapors.

If eye contact occurs, flood with water for fifteen (15) minutes and call a physician. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY.
