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

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!
