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.

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 strength detergent, 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 Mordent Solution TM38 prior to application of Fastrac finish. Alternatively, or for other non-ferrous metals, prime with Bradite Barrier Primer EU96 or SORTED WP45, before application of Fastrac finish. For the protection of metal structures in more demanding exposure scenarios, application of Fastrac Antico Primer AP71 or Bradite General Purpose Primer AP70 is highly recommended.


Application and use should always conform to the codes of practice described in BS 6150 and BS 5493.
