Hi is the metalcote undercoat and top coat enamel, suitable for drain pipes?


Assuming the drain pipes are steel, clean, dry and previously painted we can recommend Teamac Metalcote Undercoat and Teamac Metalcote Plant Enamel.

If it is bare metal then we would recommend Teamac Rapidry HB Zinc Phosphate Primer followed by Teamac Metalcote Plant Enamel.

HI can i use Teamac to paint my steel narrowboat with a roller?


Assuming the paint is for above the waterline, the steel is dry, clean and sound we would recommend Teamac Marine Undercoat followed by Teamac Marine Gloss. This is available in many RAL and BS colours.

questions David Smith on 2018-10-22 09:10:19

I am refurbishing a Belle cement mixer. I have removed all flaking paint and keyed original paintwork and primed all surfaces as well as bare metalwork with a grey acrylic spray primer. I want to apply further paintwork by brush as spraying is messy.I feel that your Teamac Metalcote would be good, however should i need to use your suggested undercoat before applying the top coats of gloss RAL 2004.


Teamac Metalcote Undercoat could be used prior to application of Teamac Metalcote Plant Enamel and would improve the finish/durability of the finished system but should you choose to, Teamac Metalcote Plant Enamel could be applied directly to your previously painted, prepared surfaces.

Question: What type of Thinner do I require for the Teamac Zinc Phosphate Primer and Teamac Metal Coat Enamel. Can they be thinned with water or do I require a solvent Thinner.

Teamac Zinc Phosphate Primer (P201) and Teamac Metalcote Plant Enamel both should be used in conjunction with Teamac Thinner 14 where required.
