Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver protects exterior wood against wet rot, wood boring insects and more in a clear or colour preservative. With superb quality water repellent resins and low odour, this deep penetrating oil/spirit wood preservative is ideal for use on treated and untreated wood and gives a semi transparent finish, which allows the natural wood texture to show through.
Suitable for rough, sawn or smooth timber, Barrettine Wood Preserver does not require over sealing for wood protection so can stand alone. It can also however, be used as a preservative base for overcoating with protective treatments, wood oils and oil based paints or varnishes, for aesthetic purposes (allow for weathering period). If using as a stand alone product, seven colour shades are available.
- Contains Permethrin, Tebuconazole & IPBC.
- Protects uncontaminated timber against wet rot, decay and wood boring insect attack.
- Mainly an exterior wood preservative but has some Internal uses. (refer to the back of the tin/container).

- Suitable for rough, sawn or smooth timber, does not require over sealing.
- Harmless to plants and pets when dry.
- Oil/Spirit-based for deeper penetration.

Applying Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver
Use outdoors to preserve wooden fences, gates, sheds and for most external wood care tasks including window frames, external doors and door frames (internal & external sections). The Barrettine clear wood preserver can also be used on structural timbers in unoccupied areas such as floor joists.
This wood preserver is also suitable for use on animal housing including chicken coops, stables and kennels **keep animals away until the surface is completely dry**
While Barrettine premier wood preserver is available in seven UV fade resistant colours, it can also be overcoated for aesthetic purposes or for added protection, with suitable paints and wood oils.
NOTE: Before overcoating, allow the wood to fully ‘weather’ after applying the preservative. This is especially important for water based paints as the wax contained in the preserver will repel the water and prevent adherence of the paint. The ‘weathering’ process can take several months.
- Wood must be dry, and dirt free. Remove previous coatings such as paint or varnish and clean with a biocidal wash
- Apply in dry weather conditions by brush, roller or spray (wood can also be dipped)
- 2 to 3 coats are recommended. Allow 12 to 14 hours between coats, based on weather conditions

Can be sprayed using an airless sprayer such as a Wagner or Graco ideally using a minimum 1mm flat fan tip nozzle (9 – 11 thou tip).
The sprayer must be thoroughly cleaned after application with white spirit and then oiled to protect the tip and moving parts (as per manufacturer’s instructions). This product cannot be sprayed with a traditional pump action garden sprayer.
Ensure wood to be treated is dry, free from dirt and repellent coatings such as paint or varnish. (remove and sand down as required).
Recommend using a biocidal wash such as Barrettine Knockout Mould and Mildew prior to treatment.
The final colour finish can vary considerably due to the age, type & condition of the timber being treated. We always recommend carrying out a test area first in an inconspicuous area to make sure you are happy with the final dried colour.
Brush, dip, roller or spray in suitable conditions. (When used outdoors make sure weather conditions are dry and still).
Coverage: 180ml per m2 or1 litre to 5-6 sq metres.
Drying times: 12 hours under normal conditions (20°C/65% rel. humidity).
Best results – recommend 2-3 applications/coats.

Always read the label. Use biocides safely.
What is the difference between Barrettine Wood Preserver, Wood Protective Treatment and Universal Preserver?

Barrettine Wood Protective TreatmentProvides non-biocidal protection, nourishing the wood and repelling water ingress that can cause decay. Less protection is given than Barrettine Wood PreserverIdeal for use on pre-treated timberContains a surface biocide to protect against the growth of surface mouldContains quality resins, which repel water and physically protect the woodAvailable in clear and a range of coloursSuggested for use on pre-preserved wood, e.g. pressure treated/tanalised timberPlease refer to the product label for full guidance and usage conditions.
Barrettine Universal PreserverPrimer, requiring over-coating if weathering expectedCan be used on structural timbers such as roof/floor joists without a topcoatContains biocides that protect against wet rot, decay and wood boring insectsResins & binders present are intended to retain the biocides rather than repel waterAvailable in clear onlyFor use on bare wood which will be over-coated, for example with Barrettine Log Cabin Treatment or opaque paint, or physically protected from the elements.Compatible with many products both water- and solvent-based.Compatibility with any additional coating should always be confirmed by a test patch.
It should be noted that the above products are preventative treatments and these products are unlikely to kill/control mould spores already present within the wood. If this is suspected, Barrettine Mould and Mildew Cleaner should be used, prior to coating the wood. The bottom of wooden structures e.g. sheds will also require more frequent treatment with Mould and Mildew Cleaner, as the action of rain splashing on the ground will distribute mould spores onto the wood. Frequent treatment with Mould and Mildew Cleaner can prolong the life of the wood coating. Also, repeat and periodic re-treatments using the above wood care products will enhance and protect the appearance, and prolong the life of the wood.
Additionally, whilst Barrettine Wood Preserver and Universal Preserver are protective against wood-boring insects, they will not kill existing infestations. For this, Barrettine Woodworm Killer would be required.
