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. Apply directly, by brush, roller, conventional or airless spray; we recommend two coats for ultimate protection.
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
Choose from 5 shades. Carbolustre 2000 Barn Paint is available in subtle greys, olive, brown, green and black. Once dry our Barn Paint has a semi gloss finish.

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.
