Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver stands out as a top-tier, low-odour, oil-based solution designed for the deepest penetration into wood, offering unmatched protection against wood-destroying fungi (including wet rot), wood-discolouring fungi, and wood-boring insects. Its formulation is engineered to preserve the natural beauty of the wood, providing a semi-transparent matt/satin finish that showcases the wood's texture, making it an ideal choice for both pressure-treated wood and untreated timber.
This premier wood treatment is versatile enough for use on a variety of timber types, whether rough, sawn, or smooth, and uniquely does not necessitate over-sealing for effective wood protection. This means no additional topcoat is required, except for aesthetic reasons, simplifying the preservation process while ensuring long-lasting durability.
Specifically designed for outdoor use, Barrettine Wood Preserver can also be applied to windows, frames, external doors (including both internal and external sections), and structural timbers in unoccupied areas like floor joists. Its clear formulation can enhance the appearance of wood while providing essential protection.
Incorporating UV fade-resistant colour wood stains/pigments, the preserver ensures the aesthetic longevity of the wood's appearance. Its high-quality water-repellent resins further protect the timber from moisture, a common cause of decay and damage in outdoor environments.
The active ingredients - Permethrin, Tebuconazole, and IPBC - offer comprehensive protection to maintain the integrity of uncontaminated timber against threats like wet rot, decay, and insect attack. While it's primarily suited for external applications, certain internal uses are also possible, as detailed on the product's packaging.
Certified under COPR/BPR for safety and efficacy, Barrettine Wood Preserver is harmless to plants and pets once dry, making it a considerate choice for garden areas and homes with pets. The oil/spirit-based formulation ensures deeper penetration for more effective protection, paired with a low odour for a more pleasant application experience.
Barrettine's commitment to quality is evident in the superb water repellent resins and UV fade-resistant pigments used, providing high-level, long-lasting protection and preservation that keeps wood looking its best and standing up to the elements over time.
