When applying this alkyd primer, the surface should always be clean, dry and free-from loose materials and contamination. General surface preparation guidelines are included in the datasheet for wood, carbon steel and aluminium.

Jotun Alkyd Primer can be applied by spray, brush or roller - with rollers needing extra care to achieve the specified dry film thickness.

questions james lean on 14/05/2016
Question: I am looking for primer for aluminium below the waterline, under antifouling coat. Is this suitable? Jus to touch in on existing bare patches, not to coat a new surface.

The primer we recommend for prepared aluminium (cleaned and lightly abraded), which can then be overcoated with antifouling paint is Jotun Safeguard Universal ES however this product is only available in 18L drums.

For small repair areas you could instead apply 2-3 coats of Jotun Penguard HB, followed by a single coat of Jotun Vinyguard Silvergrey 88, before applying antifouling paint.
