I live in Belgium. My father who is 82 years old used aldready carbolineum
to protect wood when he was a teenager. Now it seems this product is
forbidden due to health and environment reasons. I tried already several
alternatives but I don't think they are worth the money I spend on them. Is
there somebody who knows a good alternative to protect wood outside? Or
does somebody know where carbolineum is still available in Belgium?
I don't know the answer, but to clarify what I think the question is, this
stuff was very similar to what rail road ties used to be preserved with.
Since they still do use wooden railroad ties in many places something will
have replaced Johan's carbolineum.
Just DAGS'd. look here: <http://www.carbolineum.com/
Looks like it is still produced way over there. It is available in the
United States. Check out

them for local information.
