Carbolustre 2000 Barn Paint is a flexible, weatherproof and waterproof paint for sheds, barns, outdoor wood and metal, available in black and other colours. Our barn paint is a mix of high blend bitumen and alkyd resin waterproofing. So it’s not only attractive, but has great protective qualities.

Carbolustre 2000 is a bituminous barn paint ideally suited for the protection of exterior buildings such as barns, stables, outbuildings, sheds, silos, windmills, and factory units (corrugated and metal box cladding).

Also highly recommended for fencing, gates, farm equipment, tanks, drainpipes, doors, windows and many other areas around gardens, farms and factories

Proper surface preparation is essential for the success of any protective coating system. Before you begin ensure the area is free from any dust, oil, grease, old coatings and surface contaminants.

For maximum protection prime bare surfaces with Palatine Anti-Corrosive Metal Primer or Palatine A.P Primer/Undercoat in accordance with our recommendations.
For non-ferrous metals use Palatine Fast Dry etching primer.
Rub down previously gloss painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly.


Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C), dry conditions.

Mix thoroughly for approximately 2 minutes using a drill stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is also ideal.
Apply an even coat using a brush, short to medium pile roller on smooth surfaces and a long pile roller on textured surfaces.
For spray application by either airless or conventional spray a dilution ration of no more than 10% is recommended with Palatine White Spirit by volume.
For application as a finish coat or onto wooden surfaces, a minimum of two coats is recommended.

    Used this paint to do a large Dutch barn with tin sheets which were rusting quite badly with the odd leak.
    The Carbolustre has done a fantastic job at giving the barn a fresh new look and stopping any leaks.
    A great product at a great price and will definitely be using these guys for future jobs.

  2. Lou Farrow

    Speedy delivery and great product. I painted my summerhouse with this so wanted to paint the fence to match. Great coverage and colour. Would definitely recommend this product and company.

    1st of all the speed of dispatch is exceptionally good. My paint arrived so quickly and allowed myself to use it right away. On opening the tin you could tell that this was indeed a good purchase. After stirring for 2 minutes as the directions said, I was ready to apply the paint. It painted on very smoothly and gives excellent cover. I’ve used it on my shed as I want the protection, but don’t want to be doing this every year. This product will certainly do the job, it dries within 24 hours to give a lustre sheen. I’m very pleased with the result, just have to wait a few years to confirm what I suspect will be a long lasting protective product. So pleased I’ve discovered Palatine paints, it will be my 1st port of call for all my painting needs.

    Very good quality and easy to apply. Gives weatherboarded buildings the traditional look of tar paint. No problems with fading after a year and I’ve just received my next can. Unbelievably quick service and delivery by Parcel Force, coming from Lancashire to Sussex in less than 24 hours! So much better than using a cheap but unreliable courier like Hermes. Well packed and protected by moulded inserts top and bottom.

    Very pleased with this product. Have used it to paint my wooden feather board fencing. Have previously used Ronseal paint but that would soon fade & I was constantly re-painting it. The Carbolustre barn paint was easy to apply with a brush I chose the Black and it looks great – really shows off the colour of the flowers.

  6. David Cowoo (verified owner)

    I’ve painted my sheds and fencing over the years with paints from Ronseal, Cuprinol, Wickes, and also tried Creocote, but none of them gave a long lasting finish. I decided to try something with a bit more ‘body’ and chose Carbolustre 2000 Barn paint. As soon as I started to stir the tin I could tell this paint was in a different league. It was easy enough to apply and although I coated it quite thickly, it didn’t run. Suffice to say I am very pleased with the product and just about to order twice as much again to paint the rest of my woodwork. I feel the bitumen content gives this paint real substance and the shiny gloss finish repels water with the rain just beading away. Lovely stuff.

    Building leaking like a sieve after 2 coats of “shed paint”, but 2 coats of Carboluster midnight green and no more problems.

    Also a great finish just like ordinary gloss paint, not a coat of bitumen, and cheaper that the “shed paint” to boot!

  8. Andrew Bird (verified owner)

    Fabulous paint, great website easy to order.
    The paint was very easy to apply and has made the farm building look as good as new again.
    Thank you
