Metal primers and rust-inhibiting undercoats provide the crucial stage to any major maintenance, renovation and metal restoration work. Whether it is for cladding, roofing, floors, mezzanines, helipads, steel and cast-iron structures, or oil tankers, metal primers are available to buy here today, in combination with other products and topcoats required to finish a major build or small project, in almost any working and environmental conditions.
Direct to metal paints are the quickest and easiest way to cover rust, or deliver high-quality finishes to areas with minimal surface preparation. Some of the better known direct-to-metal products include coatings from Rust-Oleum’s CombiColor and Noxyde ranges.
Metal topcoat finishes can either be used to complete full paint systems, or refinish any maintenance or repair work that has been done. Aluminium paints, high-gloss finishes for increased durability in high-humidity environments, enamel and gold-effect or metallic finishes are popular specialist metal topcoats that deliver much improved results over standard coatings.
Heat resistant paints for metal are not the same as intumescent paints for steel. Heat resistant paints have been specifically designed to withstand high-heat temperatures up-to 750°C – for use on chimneys, pipes, engines, log-burners, and exhaust pipes, etc. They will not break down under duress of high-temperatures, and the products available to buy today at Rawlins Paints are designed for commercial and industrial use.
Metal cladding paints can rejuvenate and re-colour aged and weathered cladding. As businesses re-brand, so do colour schemes – which using a high-quality metal cladding paint can mean that the façade to a business property can be relaunched extremely quickly.
Teamac, International, Jotun and Sherwin-Williams are amongst the specialist manufacturers producing high-grade marine paints and coatings for boats, yachts, cruisers, trawlers, etc. These metal paints are designed to protect metal surfaces in submerged environments, and even in ice-cold Arctic conditions.
Whilst many metal paints can be applied by brush, roller and spray, Rawlins Paints also stock aerosols for use on metal and metallic surfaces and substrates – from primers to topcoats. Rust-Oleum Hard Hat Topcoats are the number 1 best-selling industrial aerosols for metal, delivering high-quality gloss finishes with superb colour retention.
In more extreme corrosive and industrial environments, including power stations, oil refineries, pulp and paper plants, gas pipe infrastructures, chemical processing plants, aviation sites and hangers, low temperature coatings may be required. Tank coatings and linings available also provide industrial solutions for internal and external surfaces of tanks storing gas, water or aviation fuel. A wide range of metal paints do provide above standard chemical resistance, but the range of specialist chemically resistant coatings also available at Rawlins Paints offer extreme protection to concrete, metal and other building and storage facility substrates dealing with corrosive chemicals, acids and materials on a daily basis.
A series of easy to use products that require no specialist skills to apply, for day-to-day maintenance of metal. The products require minimal surface preparation, are quick drying and are usually sufficient with just one or two coats.
This range offers products that offer longer term protection against more demanding conditions such as, extreme corrosion, chemicals, impact and abrasion, coastal environments, etc. These systems often include multiple coats and products, more stringent preparation requirements and more need for care to be taken over application.
