Blackfriar Red Oxide Metal Primer protects ferrous metals such as steel and iron with a special water-resistant formulation. Suitable for interior and exterior use. Contains zinc phosphate.


Ensure surface to be coated is clean, dry, sound and free from wax, grease or any other contamination. Remove any rust and abrade or wire brush back to a clean bright surface before applying Blackfriar Red Oxide Metal Primer.


Stir thoroughly prior to use with a broad stirrer. The product may be applied by brush, roller or spray. For best results we recommend applying by brush, working the paint into the surface profile. Apply one or two coats as required.


Not recommended.


Do not use under cold (less than 5°C), damp or humid conditions. Do not apply to damp or wet surfaces. Not suitable for application to non-ferrous metal. For galvanised metal or other non-ferrous metals use Blackfriar Multi-Surface Primer.

Drying Time

Touch dry in 2 - 4 hours. Recoat after 16 hours and within 3 days. Drying times are based on an ambient temperature of 20°C and 50% relative humidity. Lower temperatures or higher humidity will prolong the drying and overcoating times.

Clean Up

Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before washing with white spirit. Do
not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.


Store in a dry, safe place. Do not store in environments where extreme temperatures may occur. Keep within 5-30°C. Do not store in direct sunlight.
