Barrettine Creocote Is a bitumen/wax based treatment that has similar physical, water repellency and application characteristics to the traditional Creosote fence paint, but contains no biocide / preserver.

Please note: This product is not suitable for decking or exterior wooden furniture.

Timber surfaces to be treated should be clean, dry and free from mould, algae, lichen and other surface contaminates prior to application.

  1. Give the wood a clean with a stiff brush or broom to remove any surface dirt and debris if required
  2. Traces of surface mould, algae, lichen or moss should be removed with a scraper, stiff brush or power washer
  3. Areas affected by biological growth should be treated with a suitable exterior wood cleaner to help prevent regrowth
  4. 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
  5. If using Barrettine Premier Universal Preservative as a base coat for additional protection, it's important that it is allowed to dry for 24 - 48 hours before applying the Creocote on top
  6. 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 by sanding back to bare wood before applying Barrettine Creocote

Always do a test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

  1. Apply Barrettine Creocote by brush (approximately 1 Ltr per 6 to 8 square meters) or by dipping the timber into the Creocote for approximately 20 mins
  2. Allow 24 hours to dry

An excellent quality product for our sheds, gates & wooden fences by Mrs Mary Breeds

It looks good, preserves the wood well and is easy to apply - much better than the thin water based products that are sold in supermarkets.

Excellent substitute for Creosote, good coverage by Jean

Excellent sub for Creosote, which I don't think is manufactured now. This Light colour gives a golden brown on fence panels. Also good price.

Lovely fence by Amanda Guest

I have never used a creocote before so have nothing to compare to. But this is what I found. It is like water to put on so very messy. I used a disposable clothing cover up. I used a very good quality brush to keep the product on the brush and not dripping off. It is a bit messy to use but I do like the fence now it's finished. I would buy again.
