Farm Fence Paint is a solvent-borne, Linoleic Rich, matt, oil based coating for fences and outdoor wood. This product is formulated as a superior alternative to shorter term products where initial appearance and costs often outweigh performance and opacity. This product provides a durable long term protective coating suitable for exterior use on most types of wood.
Because you can use it on both woodwork and masonry posts (see our Pliocem Masonry Paint for a higher grade coating), it’s great for coordinating. Use on a variety of different fence types such as Close Board, Waney Lap, Feather Board, Tongue and Groove, Weaved and Picket Fences. Farm Fence Paint is a great choice for your protective, decorative coating needs.
For wood treatments and wood preservers please take a look at other products in the wood section.
Alongside the ready made colours for the Farm Fence Paint we also have the facility to match to RAL Classic / BS 4800 / BS 381C colour codes. If you’re looking to brighten up your garden, or blend in an ugly structure unobtrusively or need a particular shade of dark grey fence paint there is a shade for you. Just add the code in the comments section when ordering online.
The correct solvent for thinning and cleaning for this product is Palatine White Spirit

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.
The preparation of steelwork prior to painting generally falls into two main areas; that of degreasing and the removal of rust and scale.
All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material, dust, grease and millscale, etc.
Prime bare surfaces with Palatine Anti-Corrosive Metal Primer or Palatine All Purpose 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 applying thin coats allowing each one to dry before applying subsequent coats.
Once dried, a second coat can be applied at full strength. This will prolong the life and performance of the coating.
Thinning and Cleaning: Use Palatine White Spirit.
If using more than one batch of the same colour, intermix before use
