Coo-Var Water Based All Metals Primer is a water based rust preventing general purpose metals primer. It is suitable for priming most metals including iron, steel, aluminium, brass, copper and more.

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 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.

Application Conditions

Do not paint when temperature will be at 7°C or below during the painting and drying process. 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.

Subsequent Coat

Suitable topcoat.


Do not paint when temperature will be at 7°C or below during the painting and drying process.
