Product details

Product information

    A premium paint that provides a tough and durable finish to bare or rusted metal including, cast iron, galvanized steel, aluminium, and stainless steel.

    • Stain resistant
    • Scrubbable
    • Surface Preparation - Do not apply in damp or humid conditions. Apply when the temperature of the surface being painted is above 10 °C. Can be used on bare, rusty or previously painted metal, including cast iron, galvanised steel, aluminium and stainless steel. Remove any loose rust or paint with a wire brush or 120grit sandpaper before painting. For previously painted surfaces in good condition, lightly sand with 240grit sandpaper and then wipe down with a damp cloth. You can apply our paint directly to the surface without the need of a primer.
    • Instructions for Use - Stir contents thoroughly for 2-3 minutes. Purchase enough paint to complete the job. When purchasing more than 1 container of the same colour, intermix them to ensure colour uniformity. Apply 1–2 coats using a suitable brush, roller or sprayer. When using a sprayer, refer to the sprayer user guide for full instructions before use. Apply liberally, working from dry areas into the paint’s wet edge and finish with gentle, vertical strokes. Avoid excessive rolling or brushing. Extra coats may be required when making dramatic colour changes. Do not thin this product. Dries to the touch in 30 minutes under normal conditions. Allow 2-4 hours between coats. This product can be used on bare, rusty or previously painted metal, galvanised steel, aluminium and stainless steel.
