Barrettine WSP Universal Wood Preserver is a very low odour preservative that is suitable for both internal and external use prior to coating with a wood paint, varnish or sealer.

For a spirit based wood preserver, see Barrettine Premier Wood Preservative. For a wax-free, solvent-based alternative, see Barrettine Premier Universal Preservative.

Ensure that wooden surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from surface dirt, debris and other surface contaminates.

New Bare Wood

  • If required, new bare timber can be cleaned and degreased with White Spirit prior to application

Previously Treated Wood

  • Any surface coatings such as paints, varnishes and stains must be fully removed back to clean, bare wood by sanding or with a suitable stripper / remover

Old Untreated Wood

  • Wood that has become decayed should be removed and replaced
  • Cut out and burn all decayed wood at least 45cm beyond the area of damage
  • Brush down the wood with a stiff broom or brush to remove any ingrained surface dirt and debris
  • Traces of mould, algae or fungi must be removed with a stiff brush or scraper
  • Areas that have been affected by mould, algae or fungi should be treated with fungicidal wash or mould and mildew cleaner prior to application

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

  1. Shake thoroughly and decant into an appropriate container

Once dry, wood treated with Barrettine WSP Universal Wood Preserver can be overcoated with a suitable wood oil, paint, stain or varnish.
