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 Teamac Universal 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.

Mixing Instructions

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.

Preceding Coat


Subsequent Coat

Suitable topcoat, e.g Teamac Rapidry Gloss.

questions elaine on 2021-05-13 09:53:31

hello, I have some new mild steel fencing to paint it will be in an exposed urban area, can i use this primer under a topcoat of Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based)? if not what would you recommend.

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

No, for this application assuming the mild steel panels are clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the Technical Data Sheet we can recommend Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion followed by two coats of Rust-Oleum CombiColor Original.

This can be mixed to many RAL and BS colours in a satin or gloss finish.
