Nu-Steel SP Etch Primer provides excellent adhesion to metal, furnishing it in either grey or red oxide colours, providing an excellent first coat to the Nu-Steel System - an economical, protective and decorative topcoat. If the job you are working on is only small, no problem, this primer has a 12-month shelf life if kept sealed in its original container. Perfect if you work on projects spread throughout the year.

Product Use in the Workplace

  • Trailer Frame/chassis - Any vehicle, powered or not, needs to be safe and fit for purpose. This means it needs to protect against corrosion.
  • Shipping container - Shipping goods all over the world means these structures are not only out all year round but also spend much time at sea, exposed to the full battle of the elements eroding away at the metal.
  • Metal Sculpture - Metal artwork can be bare or painted. In the case of the latter, sculpists will want a colourful but protective coating so the artwork will be protected against the elements.
