Description

404S Epoxy Metal Primer is a two pack, high solids, epoxy, anticorrosive primer designed for the protection of steelwork, aluminium and galvanising.

Whilst optimum performance will only be achieved by applying to well-prepared substrates, 404S Epoxy Metal Primer will adhere well to minimally prepared surfaces. 404S Epoxy Metal Primer has a long overcoating window and provides excellent corrosion protection.
