Barrettine’s Wood Protector is a wood sealer for rough, sawn or smooth timber. It contains water repellent resins and a biocide film wood preserver to prevent the surface growth of mould/algae and together this helps reduce decay, swelling, twisting of wood. Pigments have good UV fade resistance and will help protect wood from UV damage. 

Barrettine’s Wood Protector is an ideal treatment for outdoor Treated timber structures such as Sheds, Fences, Trellis, Pergola and timber Gazeboes. As a wood sealer it provides excellent water repellency/beading. Oil / Spirit-based for deeper penetration leaving a transparent/translucent finish colour effect to wood, where the grain texture is still visible. Available in a range of colours and clear, see colour swatch below. (Not ideal for decking or garden furniture structures as rub resistance may not be sufficient).

  • UV Fade Resistant Colour Wood Stains / Pigments
  • Deep Penetrating Oil/Spirit Low Odour Formula
  • Harmless To Beneficial Insects & Plants When Dry

An ideal wood treatment for outdoor timber structures such as Sheds, Fences, Trellis, Pergola and timber Gazebo’s etc. A low build film product that absorbs into the wood, with successive coats building onto the surface to give excellent water repellency and beading. Oil / Spirit based for deeper penetration of substrate. Product gives a transparent / translucent finish colour effect to wood, the grain texture is still visible, especially on light colours leaving a matt or sheen finish depending upon number of coats. Contains water repellent resins and film biocide preserver to aid in the prevention of surface growth of mould / algae and together this helps reduce decay, swelling, twisting of wood. Pigments have good UV fade resistance and will help protect wood from UV damage. Friendly to beneficial insects when dry.


Rough sawn, cut and planed timber. When used on planed / smooth timber drying time may need to be extended and additional coats required to obtain desired effect. If used on Wooden Garden furniture, make sure the coating has fully dried/cured and is colour fast before use. The results and timing can vary due to atmospheric weather conditions and wood type. Natural oily/resinous woods and tight grain hardwoods can take longer to dry and completely cure. To be sure there is no risk of colour transfer from the treated wood/furniture onto clothing, we recommend running a white lint-free cloth over the surface and inspect for any colour rub off. If colour transfer occurs, the treated article may need a longer drying time. Due to the nature of certain resinous woods, a sealer/topcoat may be required. We recommend carrying out a test area first.


Shake container well before and during use to maintain colour uniformity. The colour swatches are an indication only and representative of the product applied to clean new/pale timber. The final colour finish can vary considerably due to the age, type & condition of the timber being treated. We always recommend carrying out a test area first in an inconspicuous area to make sure you are happy with the final dried colour. Wood must be clean, free from algae, lichen etc, use Barrettine Mould & Mildew Cleaner to remove general detritus and kill accumulated growths. Recommended to apply minimum 2 coats to ensure complete coverage. More coats will give greater depth of colour with more protective capability / water repellency and will increase film depth on the surface, providing more of a sheen finish. Drying time is typically 24 - 48 hours under normal weather conditions. Low temperature, humidity or certain components of wood may increase drying time. Wood should be dry for 24 hours before application and rain should not be forecasted for at least 48 hours after application to achieve maximum benefit of treatment.

Suitable for application directly to Pressure treated / Preserved wood. On untreated timber where it is felt a biocide preserver is necessary we recommend Barrettine Clear Universal Wood Preservative is used as a primer before application of this treatment. Apply to unsealed wood, not suitable for applying to painted or varnished wood - these coatings must be removed. Application rate: Coverage approximately 6 square metres per litre. Second application will require less product than first coat due to lower absorption of wood. Rough wood absorbs the product more strongly than smooth / planed wood giving a darker colour. Colour will be less intense on smooth / planed wood which will require more coats to develop colour strength. Best applied in temperatures between 5 - 25 Celsius, do not apply below 5 Celsius or in direct sunlight. Apply by brush or solvent compatible low pressure sprayer only (not high pressure). When applying by brush finally brush in the direction of the wood grain. Treat end grain thoroughly as this area is much more water absorbent.

Allow a minimum of 6 hours between applications, longer with smoother wood or with less favourable drying conditions. Suitable for dipping treatment (3 minutes) to provide colour and water repellency. Clean brushes / equipment with Barrettine Brush Cleaner or White Spirit. Protect plants from splashes / overspray. Keep animals / children away from wet product, safe when dry. Remove splashes immediately from surfaces e.g. Plastic, paint, masonry with an absorbent cloth and white spirit. Dried on product might be removed by scraping (substrate dependent e.g. Glass) or paint remover if substrate is chemical resistant. Move pots or detach plants from fence / trellis before applying, dampen leaves of nearby plants to reduce any impact of splashes. Individual leaves splashed / sprayed may appear burnt or scorched if not wiped immediately but will not damage the entire plant. Allow product to thoroughly dry before refixing plants to treated support framework. Do not spill on bitumen, rubber, bitumen roofing felt as materials may soften or swell. Use the same batch number for maximum colour uniformity. If not possible we would recommend mixing one container with another if they are from a different batch.


Only for above ground use. Should be capable of being overcoated with solvent based products within days, however it will require a weathering period of approximately 3 months before water based product can be over applied. Darker colours may easily cover previous light colours; but light colours are unlikely to mask previously applied darker finishes. We recommend carrying out a test patch first. Beading effect decreases as detritus accumulates on the surface, but the resins provide water exclusion properties slowing and minimising water absorption. Re-treatment will be periodically required, the time interval will be determined by prevailing weather conditions, substrate elevation and exposure. Timber exhibits different characteristics, thus subtle differences in shade can be observed. Previous treatments can affect the final colour appearance. Applying more coats to individual pieces should even the final appearance. Store product between 5 - 30 Celsius in the original container. As a guide product has a shelf life of 2 years from date of manufacture.
