Can you use this to seal a new fence, rather than use the coloured stains?

Tried this last year doesn't even work waste of money

Think this is for masonry and not wood.
Used on the internal walls of my old house, before re boarding. But to be honest it didn't do a great job.. Had to put damp seal on the plaster board to stop damp/moisture coming through.

used this on exterior walls of a terraced cottage some years ago, worked great.

It didn't work for you as the manufacture says 'its for exterior use only', so if you had used it correctly it might have worked.

The manufacturer says that it can be used on 'on brick, concrete, stone and wood'. I know fences are wood but I'm not sure if it would be suitable. might be best to email them and ask.

Apparently they had to change the formulation of this a few years ago due to an EC directive and the new version isn't as effective.

Used gallons of thompson silicon sealer over the years in the building trade.I think this is a water based one not silicon if it is its just garbage,However screwfix do a silicon based one for around £12 which is exactly the same as the old thompson silicon sealer used to be.If the above is the water based one i wouldn't give £5 a gallon for it.

I wouldn't use this for your fences mate.
It will seal it from water but that's about it.
A timber preserver (preferably solvent based) would be better as it will protect it from a lot more, including infestation etc.
Or there are the water based 'timber stains' by Cuprinol or Sadolin which are available in various colours - A product which is clear/doesn't contain any pigment, won't protect very well against UV damage.

Can someone fix the link as it doesn't work at the mo'

went to B&M after this deal was posted only to find it's a 1L tin for this price in Bolton
