    This stuff is great! Was recommended to us by my dad who had already done his fences with it. It went on easily, dries quickly and looks really great (dark brown).

    Ordered a 25l drum for a 17m x 2.5m fence to do both sides. I decided to use a spray gun and it went on so easy and looks great. It took 3 hours one side and 3.5 hours to do the other so the full fence was finished in 1 day. I wasn’t sure how much of it I would need, but I have half of it left to do my other fence. I would highly recommend this product and Palatine Paints, the service was first class and the staff are great especially Clare who looked after me with all my questions.

    Ordered 25L drum in dark brown. Delivery was very fast and the product is excellent. Easy to apply, great colour and I have 100% confidence it will protect the wood fencing and railway sleepers I applied it to.

    I wore old cloths, gloves, eye protection and a mask when applying this product as its pretty strong stuff.

    I have no hesitation in recommending this product.

    This product was recommended to us for our sheds and fencing, we have purchased 6 4ltr tubs in total and can say it is the best preservative we have used, it is easy to apply and reminds me of the old creosote we used to use years before it was banned. Excellent service also from this supplier, very friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely use Palatine paints again.
