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.

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.

Would buy from this site again.
Great stuff -- needs a few coats for a darker finish but I highly recommend it for weatherproofing.
The product was ordered and delivered quickly in good condition.Once opened i used it and as the advert goes it does what it says on the tin.I am very impressed with the product.
First class service will definitely be used in the future well packed product.
Excellently priced substitute for creosote.
A good product that went on very easily with the use of only one coat. Highly recommended
Covers very well used a roller lawn side and sprayed other side 24 panels and never blocked nozzle once will be buying again and would not hesitate in recommending it
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!
As above. Good quality and reasonable priced.
Already recommended it to others.
Great product, great service
Very pleased with this product. Gave a great finish. Would certainly recommend
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.
I have never applied creocote before but my experience of this with this product was positive. Easy to apply and my fencing looks great.
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.
Good coverage at a good price
Haven't used it all yet,seems to work well in a spray gun
I have been searching for a fence treatment for some time. I could only find paint types and I wanted one that would soak in and look more natural. Creocote is very easy to apply and looks really good with just one coat.
