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.

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.

Brilliant by Elizabeth

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.

Excellent product good coverage though a bit pungent by William Smith

Bought four 4 litres light brown creocote to treat new fence, easy to apply with good coverage though as expected a bit pungent. Delivered promptly and well packaged. Ordered a further four 4 litres for future work. I certainly would buy again.

Application is as expected by NorthernSoul

So far, all as expected. Wood preservative performance still to be assessed. If it performs as expected it will certainly give best value.

Simple & effortless! by Ian Shaw

Quality product at a reasonable price. Quick delivery. Excellent coverage of the product on the new fence. With it being oil based, this will out perform all the other water based fence treatments on the market.

First time I have used Creocote as a substitute for creosote by Leighton Squibbs

This is the first time I have used this product just recently so cant give it a full review. I put it on with a spray, went on good and evenly and soaked in to the wood which I wanted. Used all the protective gear as it does smell a bit. So now have to wait and see how it lasts. I used the lighter of the two.

Excellent product Did exactly what was required by Debbie Pittom

We found this product very easy to use. The fumes were strong but we used safery glasses and protective dust guards over our nose and mouth to make things easier and safer. We used 40 litres in all and the end result looks fantastic. It was well worth the effort.
