    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 CooVar 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

    • N/A

    Subsequent Coat

    questions Derek Wright on 2015-06-04 21:04:57

    Hi, I am looking to buy paint suitable for painting automotive under body suspension and chassis parts on an older car I am restoring and wonder if you could advise. There seems to be many types of paint and on your website which look suitable and it becomes a bit confusing when reading the details of the rust preventative paints. My plan is to strip out the suspension parts which are quite rusty, remove loose rust and clean as much as possible then prime and finish coat (black) before re-assembly. I do not want to use 2 pack systems so advice on which paint is suitable from those on your website would be most useful.

    Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

    We have found from customers feedback that Rust-Oleum Mathys Noxyde is well suited to this type of work when a 2 pack coating isn't preferable. Rust-Oleum Mathys Noxyde is a primer and topcoat in one, it is a water-based, single-component paint designed for easy application and yet gives the same protection as complicated and more expensive polyurethane systems. Forms a thick anticorrosive membrane that offers unrivalled rust-proofing, corrosion and waterproofing protection.
