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 mould and mildew should be treated with Barrettine Mould and Mildew Cleaner
  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

Probably not 100% as good as the old creosote but not falling much behind by Keith Gilliver

I have used both creosote and creocote over the past 50 years and will continue to buy creocote.

Found it easy to use by Mr P McHugh

I decided to get creocote because I was unhappy with the modern shed/fence products. It was easy to use and looks good.

As expected by Miss R Hallam

Rich oil brings out the markings in the wood, looks expensive. Very runny water/oil based will pierce through fence to other side

Fantastic deep colour lasts a long time and easy to apply.

It is easy to apply but you need to re-do the fence annually.

As the saying goes what it does on the tin by Tom.

Great fence and gate paint it being oil based is excellent for me with 2fences and 2 sheds it goes on easy with brush but only downside is it runs a bit. It probably be better put on with spray gun. Having said that looks really good on.

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.
