Teamac High Performance 2 Pack Zinc Phosphate Primer (also known as Teamac High Performance Marine Primer Undercoat, and formerly High Performance Marine Primer) offers the highest level of corrosion resistance for above and below the waterline in harsh marine environments.
The two-pack epoxy zinc phosphate coating can extend the lifespan of your boat, suitable for yachts, power boats, dinghies, narrowboats, cruisers, commercial vessels and many other marine applications.
Can be applied to suitably prepared wood, GRP, steel and aluminium, used for application to blast cleaned and other suitably prepared steel surfaces. It is not suitable for use as a weld through blast primer. Provided the steel has been cleaned effectively, an outstanding bond is formed between primer and metal.
Ensure mixing instructions are followed.

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 solvent 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.
By volume, mix 3 parts of the base with 1 part of the activator, as the ratio supplied. These should be thoroughly mixed together, preferably by slow speed electric mixer.
Ensuring the material is thoroughly mixed is very important - poorly mixed product can lead to soft spots and uncured coatings.
Thinning is not normally required for airless spray systems.
Use within 4 hours.
Clean and flush equipment immediately after use to prevent the paint solidifying in guns, pots and lines.
Should not be carried out when the ambient temperature is below 5°C (Please note drying will be retarded below 10°C but will stop below 5°C) or the relative humidity is above 80 to 90%. As dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
Can be applied over 2 pack zinc phosphate blast primers which are free from contamination.
High Performance Marine Primer forms a system with Teamac Marine High Performance Gloss and can be used with Teamac Antifoulings and top coats. Will go under most 1 and 2 pack materials.
