Barrettine's Wood Protective Treatment stands as a high-quality wood sealer tailored for both rough and smooth timber surfaces. Its formulation includes water-repellent resins that are essential in reducing decay, swelling, and twisting caused by moisture exposure. Enhanced with pigments that provide excellent UV fade resistance, this treatment helps safeguard the wood from the damaging effects of sunlight.
This product is particularly suited for outdoor treated timber structures such as sheds, fences, trellises, pergolas, and timber gazebos, offering them long-lasting protection and preservation. While it delivers superior water repellency and beading, it is oil/spirit-based for deeper penetration into the wood, leaving a transparent to translucent finish that highlights the natural grain and texture. Available in a variety of colours as well as a clear option, it allows for personalisation while providing essential protection.
Key features of Barrettine's Wood Protective Treatment include:
- UV Fade Resistant Colour Wood Stains/Pigments for lasting beauty.
- Deep Penetrating Oil/Spirit-based formula with low odour for comfortable use.
- Safe for beneficial insects and plants once dry, ensuring environmental friendliness.
- Suitable for application via an airless sprayer for efficient coverage, requiring a specific nozzle size for optimal results.
For the best outcomes, the wood should be dry, clean, and free from any repellent coatings such as paint or varnish. A biocidal wash, like Barrettine Knockout Mould and Mildew, is recommended before application to ensure the surface is optimally prepared. Since the final colour finish can vary depending on the wood's age, type, and condition, conducting a test area first is advised to ensure satisfaction with the final appearance.
Application methods include brushing, dipping, rolling, or spraying under suitable conditions, with a coverage rate of approximately 180ml per square metre. For best results, 2-3 applications are recommended, allowing 12 hours of drying time under normal conditions.
After use, cleaning equipment with Barrettine White Spirit ensures they remain in good condition. It's important to always read the label and use biocides safely to protect yourself and the environment.
