Rated 3 out of 5 by Ok so far Bought this to protect some softwood sleepers that will be in constant contact with soil on at least one surface. Sika advised this product would be suitable in this application. I can confirm that it is low odour, easy to apply, and doesn't change the colour of the wood in any appreciable way. As to its protective properties time will be needed before it's possible to comment. 11 Apr 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Probably as good as anything I have sadly run out of creosote, after stocking up before it was banned. I tried 'creosote substitute', but it was useless, so have moved on to this. It is easy to apply, soaks into the wood well, and from the COSHH data sheet it appears to be reassuringly toxic, so I am hoping it will be effective. VERY expensive, though. 21 Oct 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A breath of fresh air. Much nicer to use than the old oil based stuff. Can't really tell how effective or reliable it is yet, time will tell. it's a respected brand so I'm sure it will be fine. 1 Oct 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to apply Tried this after finding formulation of competitor products has changed to provide only a surface coating,which is prone to flaking/peeling. Also needed quick drying capacity in view of cold night-time temperature. This was exceptionally easy to apply (and clean up after), soaked in and dried very quickly - much easier than other solvent based types I have tried that need days to dry before re-coating. Time will establish durability - but I will be using this again in future. 1 Oct 2015

Answer: 
Yes its ideal for providing protection to the timber. Apply three coats and dip the ends to allow end grains to thoroughly soak up the product for a minimum of 10 minutes.

Answer: 
You could perhaps check out the Ronseal Wet Rot Wood Hardener available at Screwfix, Product Code 63540 and see if that's suitable.

Answer: 
Sorry but it does not stabilise or harden the wood, it does however protect it against all types of rot, fungi and insects like woodworm.
