Oil/solvent based wood treatment for deeper penetration.
Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment is also perfect for treating for many outdoor treated timber structures like sheds, summerhouse and gazebos. The treatment seals wood to give excellent water repellency and is oil based for deeper penetration.
The translucent finish of Barrettine wood treatment allows visibility of the natural grain whilst providing a colour for effect (also available in clear). Seven colours available including the popular golden brown wood treatment, see swatch below. (Not ideal for decking or garden furniture structures as rub resistance may not be sufficient).

The colour swatches are an indication only and representative of the product applied to clean new/pale timber and rough sawn pine (2 coats). The final colour finish can vary considerably due to the age, type & condition of the timber being treated and will darken with multiple coats. Viewing colours on multiple digital screens can vary considerably and may not be totally accurate. We always recommend carrying out a small inconspicuous test area first. It is the Customer/end users responsibility to satisfy themselves that the colour finish is correct before full application.
Smooth Pine (2 coats)
Rough Pine (2 coats)
Can be sprayed with a traditional pump action Garden style sprayer with viton seals. Protective treatment can also be sprayed using an airless sprayer (Wagner or Graco type) 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)
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.
Apply by brush, dip, roller or solvent compatible low-pressure sprayer only (not high-pressure & ensure weather conditions are dry and still).
Coverage: 1 litre to 6 sq metres./
Drying times: 24-48 hours under normal conditions.

Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment
Provides non-biocidal protection, nourishing the wood and repelling water ingress that can cause decay. Less protection is given than Barrettine Wood Preserver
Ideal for use on pre-treated timber
Contains a surface biocide to protect against the growth of surface mould
Contains quality resins, which repel water and physically protect the wood
Available in clear and a range of colours
Suggested for use on pre-preserved wood, e.g. pressure treated/tanalised timber
Please refer to the product label for full guidance and usage conditions.
Barrettine Universal Preserver
Primer, requiring over-coating if weathering expected
Can be used on structural timbers such as roof/floor joists without a topcoat
Contains biocides that protect against wet rot, decay and wood boring insects
Resins & binders present are intended to retain the biocides rather than repel water
Available in clear only
For 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.
