Cladding Paints

Category Overview

Metal and plastic cladding is often subject to deterioration due to the impact of weather conditions over time. In order to retain the integrity of metal cladding on the outside of a building, it’s important to maintain and rejuvenate the surface. Rawlins Paints stock metal cladding paint and plastic cladding paints from top level brands, specifically formulated to extend and enhance the lifespan of cladding.

Primer cladding paint

We stock everything you need to make sure your metal or plastic cladding is suitably maintained. Rust-Oleum PVDF Primer is a super adhesion primer for galvanised steel, zinc and aluminium cladding and PVDF or PVF2 cladding.

903 Cladding Primer is also specially formulated and developed as a primer or sealer for metal substrates. It works by stabilising the surface before cladding paint is used as a topcoat. 902 HD Cladding paint is the high performance topcoat to use over 903 primer paint for cladding. These products are available in a wide range of colours. 

A self-priming coating, Thermoguard Cladcoat works for most metal and plastic cladding. Approved for Plastisol, Thermoguard can also be used on rigid plastics, including Foamex but it’s recommended that spot tests are carried out on other types of plastic to make sure the finish will be as required. It can be used on railings, gates, metal fencing, most building plastics and galvanised metal, making it a good all-in-one coating.

Metal cladding topcoats

Rust-Oleum Mathys Metal Cladding Topcoat is a long lasting acrylic paint with a semi-gloss finish. It’s designed to be long lasting with a life expectancy of up to ten years. Mathys Metal Cladding Topcoat is specially designed to use as a metal cladding finish on top of Rust-Oleum PVDF Primer, Rust-Oleum Mathys Metal Cladding Primer or on any metal surface that has been coated with Rust-Oleum Noxyde Peganox or Rust-Oleum Noxyde. In some cases, Mathys Topcoat can be directly applied to Plastisol wall cladding surfaces. Whichever surface it’s used on, the result is a decorative satin topcoat that is much cheaper than replacing cladding entirely to give the building a facelift.
