Auson Red Pine Tar

Auson Red Pine Tar is based on its ancestor, Genuine Pine Tar and Iron Oxide. This gives the façade wall the traditional red colour that has been popular in Sweden since time immemorial. It also provides the best protection from the wind and weather. The Red Pine Tar is perfect for both classic summer cottages with white house corners and wooden houses with modern architecture and colour schemes.Dilute with at least 20% gum turpentine.

Top score in Folksam’s paint review

Pine tar is a totally natural product that protects your house from mildew and rot fungi, and prevents moisture from penetrating the wood. This led to our Red Pine Tar being one of the outdoor paints that did best in Folksam’s Paint Review.
