Barrettine Creocote is an oil-based Creosote substitute for exterior woods which has been developed as a safer, more environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional Creosote fence paint, which is no longer available for domestic use.

Available in a light or dark shade, this creosote substitute is ideally suited to rough woods on sheds, fences and barns but can be used on a variety of exterior woods to protect and preserve.

Barrettine Creocote has similar physical, water repellency and application characteristics of the traditional Creosote fence paint but contains no biocide/preserver. For additional protection against insect attack, mould, algae and wood rot, a base coat of Barrettine Premier Universal Preservative can be applied before the Creocote.

If using Barrettine Premier Universal Preservative as a base coat for additional protection, it's important that it is allowed to dry for 24 to 48 hours before applying the Creocote on top.

Barrettine Creocote Is a bitumen/wax based treatment that helps to protect the timber by repelling water and preventing ingress.

Timber surfaces to be treated should be clean, dry and free from mould, algae, lichen and other surface contaminates prior to application. Timber surfaces can be cleaned with a stiff brush and Fungicidal Wash (Multicide) to remove any organic matter from the surface of the wood.

Other than water based or spirit based wood preservers, this product can only be used on bare wood - any surface coatings of paint or varnish must be fully removed before applying Barrettine Creocote.

Always do a test area before starting any project to test the suitability and colour of this product.

This product can be brush applied (approximately 1 Ltr per 6 to 8 square meters) or the timber can be dipped into the Creocote for approximately 20 mins.

Please Note: This product is not suitable for use on decking or exterior wooden furniture.

Best for fences! by Patrick Sullivan

In the absence of the real thing, this is a superb substitute. The colour is good, consistent and provides a good finish. In my view, a far better option than the water based alternatives in their pastel colours!

This was my second order with this company, good products, well packed delivered on time by R Johns

This order was a top-up for my previous stock. Nice to be able to get the same product in the same colour again. This product can be applied by spray and brush. the spray element is essential for one small area where a neighbours new fence means I cannot readily get to part of my out building.

Superb by David Harrison

Excellent product that gives a very nice finish to the fence I am painting. You can see it soak into and refresh the wood. Fingers crossed it looks as good in a couple of years time.
