Surface Preparation

  • Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from grease, oil and any other contaminates.
  • Bare steel should be free from dust, rust and scale. Blast cleaning to SA 2½ is recommended.
  • If blast cleaning is impractical, mechanical cleaning should be employed as hand cleaning does not clean the steel to the required degree.
  • Any oil or grease should be removed with Coo-Var Degreaser before de-rusting.
  • Where blast cleaning is carried out after assembly, special attention must be paid to edges, corners, nuts, bolts, welds etc.
  • Welds should, if necessary be ground and all weld spatter, slag etc. must be removed.

Preceeding Coat

Subsequent Coat

  • Teamac Duracote Anticorrosive Red Oxide or other suitable topcoat.


  • Mix well before use.

Application Conditions

  • As dictated by normal good painting practice.
  • Care must be taken during application that the temperature is above the dew point to avoid any contamination.
  • In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.

questions Bob on 2023-07-31 20:45:05

So I have applied one coat to side of narrowboat, scabbled down to steel then sanded to bare metal. The data sheet says it can be reapplied coat on coat, with the weather as poor as it is this year I’m waiting to apply second coat. Does it need to keyed prior to another coat or can it just be over coated on itself ?. And can I just key it each year and apply another coat as and when required?. Thank you

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

This product can be applied coat on coat.

However, if the previous coat has fully cured, which takes around 5 days at 20 Degrees ░, you'll need to abrade the existing coating, which will ensure the subsequent coat can adhere successfully.

questions Mark on 2021-03-25 17:06:51

As daft as this may sound, is this product aquatic friendly? I need something to paint a galvanised roof of my koi pond. If this isn’t suitable, can you recommend a product that is please?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

This paint is not aquatic friendly, assuming the galvanised is bare, clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the Technical Data sheet (treated with Teamac Mordant Solution (T Wash) prior to application ) we can recommend Teamac Metaclor Antifouling Primer followed by Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber Paint.

Once fully cured this is will be fine for aquatic life.

Would this be a good product to use on sea water vessels to protect the steel keels?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

In this sort of environment you would be better using Teamac Zinc Phosphate Primer on the topsides and Teamac Metaclor Underwater CR Primer anywhere below the waterline.

questions Neil Tulloch  on 2018-10-01 18:55:21

Is one coat ok or do you recommend two

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Teamac Duracote Red Oxide Paint can be applied directly to prepared iron or steel, a minimum of 2 coats are recommended when leaving as a finish. Alternatively one coat can be applied if another suitable topcoat is being applied subsequently. For greater protection prime first with Teamac Zinc Phosphate Primer.

questions Bsrry Tindall on 2018-03-21 15:05:18

Can this paint be used on wood please? Barry

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Teamac Duracote Red Oxide Paint is not designed for application to wood but could be applied if necessary. We would however recommend the use of Teamac Metalastic Metal Protective Paint Colours instead where possible.
