Coo-Var Vandalene can be used on fences, drain pipes, window ledges, gutters etc to provide a virtually un-climbable surface and burglars will find it impossible to climb and become thoroughly clogged and coated with a greasy "tell tail" deposit of Coo-Var Vandalene.

This can then be easily identified on a person running away from the scene of an attempted crime. In addition, the intruder becomes thoroughly marked and can be easily identified by police. Display our A4 and A5 posters as a deterrent to unwanted visitors.

Hi Squirrels are eating my lead flashing around the chimney. If I coat the lead with the grey anti-climb paint would this prevent the squirrels chewing it? They could still reach the lead by standing on the tiles themselves, but would this be a deterrent to them by way of smell / taste / texture, do you know? Is the paint OK to use on lead flashing (won't damage it)? I assume the paint won't harm the squirrels (as the Q&A advises it doesn't harm cats)? Many thanks for your help


This product can be applied to lead, but this is not animal safe.

As it is designed to never fully harden, if used you may have issues with the squirrels spreading it on to other areas.

How long will the paint stay wet on a fence?


When applied correctly this is designed as a non drying coating and will remain tacky.

We are looking to purchase some anti climb paint for 80m of Palisade fencing how much do you advise we need if applying 10cm to pales tops.


This area would equate to 8m² in which case you'd need between 4-8kg of the Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint for this.

Hi there, Please can you tell me how to get this black anti climb paint out of carpets and a cat, and is it toxic to the cat Many thanks


Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint will not harm the cat, it’s primarily petroleum jelly.

The carpet can be dealt with by hot iron on brown paper to get most of the petroleum jelly out then washing up liquids and water should take out the pigments.

The cat, wipe the area with soap and warm water until it’s clean.

What information should be put on a warning sign when anti climb paint is being used

questions Stephen Newman on 2018-05-08 23:24:41

Which Vandalene product is best for a (mostly red) brick wall? Part of the wall is at 45 degrees. Will Vanadalene stick to a brick wall with this angle? Thank you.


There is only one Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint but it is available in 4 colours and can be applied to vertical or horizontal surfaces so 45 degrees will be fine.

questions Richard on 2017-11-09 12:36:25
Question: if someone with this paint on their hands tries to then wipe it off using my wall (made of timber and brick), how easy will it be for me to clean the mess off said wall?

On brickwork relatively easily, on soft wood less so.

questions Anthony Birn on 2015-11-20 18:54:49

Can Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint be applied to a felt roof without ruining the felt? Need to prevent someone climbing on a flat roof with easy access.


Yes, Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint is fine on felt.

questions Linda on 2015-08-17 09:06:16

Can Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint be used on a plastic coated chain link fence please.


Yes, it would last longer if you could clean and lightly abrade the surface to provide a key for the Coo-Var Vandalene Anti Climb Paint to stick to.
