Low temperature and high humidity will adversely affect application, drying and performance of any coating.

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 matt on 22/09/2019

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


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 01/10/2018

Is one coat ok or do you recommend two


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 21/03/2018

Can this paint be used on wood please? Barry


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.
