Coo-Var Zinc Phosphate Primer is a high performance, modified alkyd metal primer with very good anti-corrosive properties.
Coo-Var Zinc Phosphate Primer is primarily used as an anti-corrosive primer on iron and steel but is ideal when wood and metal are combined in the same structure as it will prime both surfaces. A stronger primer than most basic DIY primers, can be used for fire escapes, metal gates, metal garage doors and more. Can also be used on aluminium and is ideal in coastal areas.
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.
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.
Suitable topcoat, not for use below Rapidry products.
