Features & Benefits


  • Available in more than 2000 colours in RAL, BS, NCS and select ACE
  • High performance single pack silicone/polyurethane alkyd finish
  • For direct-to-metal decoration of ferrous metals
  • Can be used as part of a finishing system for more demanding exposure scenarios
  • Perfect for the protection and decoration of ferrous metals in many home projects such as fencing, gates and other ironmongery
  • May also be used to paint previously painted or primed timber
  • Ideally suited as a refinish for agricultural, construction and earth moving equipment
  • Inherent high flexibility, moderate heat resistance and good resistance to mild chemicals, oils, hydrocarbons and sun light



Preparation


  • Remove all rust scale, loose mill scale or other corrosion products by scraping and mechanical cleaning to SIS-St 3 (ISO 8501-1:1998). Bradite TD39 Industrial Degreaser, washing and rinsing should be used with scrubbing to remove grease or oil
  • Intact areas of existing coatings should be roughened by abrasive manual or disc sanding, feathering back to a sound coating edge. Cracks and pits should be filled using a suitable metal filler before painting. Substrate should be dust free and completely dry before coating
  • For unpainted softwood timber, knots should be sealed with a proprietary knotting compound and then primed with a proprietary quality wood primer. Unpainted hardwood & resinous timber substrates should be primed with a proprietary aluminium wood primer
  • For industrial maintenance applications, high pressure steam cleaning to remove all loose, flaking paint and contamination back to a sound surface, is highly recommended
  • Light surface rusting may be effectively treated using one coat of Bradite Rust Converter RC46 prior to application of Fastrac finish
  • New galvanised steel should be thoroughly degreased and then pre-treated with Bradite Mordant Solution TM38 prior to application of Fastrac finish. Alternatively, or for other non-ferrous metals, prime with Bradite One Can OC64, before application of Fastrac finish
  • For the protection of metal structures in more demanding exposure scenarios, application of Bradite General Purpose Primer AP70 is highly recommended
  • For all ferrous and suitably primed non-ferrous metals which are dry, free of contamination, dust and have been properly prepared and/or primed. Product is also suitable for previously painted or primed wood. Compatibility with existing coatings should be confirmed by preparing and painting a test area
