Q:How stable is the coating under normal sunlight UV exposure -- how long can I expect this to maintain wood protection? What kind of metal connectors can be used in direct contact?
by|Mar 17, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for reaching out! While Rust-Oleum Woodlife CreoCoat Wood Preservative will impart a solid black to wood that will fade over time. The timing of the color fading will be dependent on the environmental exposure, such as UV and rain. Keep in mind, the color itself just fades and the product can be topcoated with a paint or stain if wanting to refresh or change the color. Once dry, this product can be used with any metals. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Answer This Question

    A:  Happy to help, Donna! While Rust-Oleum Wolman CreoCoat Wood Preservative can be used on exterior wood, we do not recommend it for use on decks, outdoor furniture or other wood structures intended for seating or heavy foot traffic. Instead, we recommend Rust-Oleum RockSolid 6X Deck Coat for wood surfaces that will receive heavier foot traffic. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-RockSolid-1-gal-Black-Exterior-6X-Deck-Coat-319616/307428229

          Q:I am looking to treat the cedar fence posts below grade, is there a difference between Creocoat and coppercoat?
          by|Mar 28, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  Thank you for reaching out! Both treatments are for above and below grade installations, and utilize copper naphthenate to protect the wood. Our Wolman Woodlife CreoCoat is tinted black to create a wood tone similar to creosote, while our Wolman Woodlife CopperCoat creates a greenish hue. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

            A:  It is about the same different with exception of color. The Creacoat is black pigmented as the old creasote wood treatment was. The coppercoat is green tinted but a very light tint. If you are looking for a darker tint then the creacoat works better and last longer in color tinting. As a wood preservative they work the same.

              Went on as expected but only time will tell if it protects which is the primary reason I purchased. Brushed on PT wood posts and rails of fence prior to installation. Brushing was easy with 5" deck brush but a half acre of rough fencing wood still took a good amount of time. I think a second coat would give a blacker appearance but also probably unnecessary since the wood is new pressure treated and I'm worn out from one coat and color is still nice. Posts are closer to black but rails are more of a dark weathered charcoal/brown. Raw pressure treated wood is ugly so definitely better than that but may reapply in future if I decide I want rails blacker. Four stars because I don't know yet if it will protect and I had hoped it was a little more black.

              I purchased the case of CreoCoat (4 cans). Each can is .88 of a gallon - NOT 1 U.S. Gallon as shown in the picture. It still costs $143.87 for 4 cans, even though you'll be getting almost half of a gallon less. I gave it an "Average" rating as I have to wait and see how long it works!

                We used 2 coats. Creocoat makes our old RR ties look great & we feel the wood preservative & insect repellent will give us more years before replacing the ties.

                I depend on CreoCoat for all of our four-rail 2' x 10' Douglas Fir fencing around and across our 1/2 acre property. This preservative keeps the wood free from any damage and we only re-apply every 10 years or so; more for appearance than for protection.
