At Rawlins Paints, we recognise the importance of selecting the right kind of metal paint to make sure you get the finish you need on both exterior and interior surfaces. The nature of the environment and material will dictate the type of metal topcoat you’re looking for and we’re confident that our wide range of paint for metal will cover everything for your project, no matter how large or small.
Different substrates provide all sorts of challenges for metal primer paint and metal topcoats, including rust, flaking, surface bubbling and the possibility of a poor finish. Important considerations are: how flexible is the application? Is it easy to use? What kind of finish does the metal topcoat give? How decorative is the end result?
Many of our topcoats are certified by bodies such as the Highways Agency, Network Rail and various hygiene standards, giving you added confidence in the products.
An outdoor metal paint for a wide range of large surface environments, such as bridges, mills, offshore structures and factories, International Interthane 990 is good for both new projects and maintenance purposes. Its acrylic polyurethane finish coat guarantees longevity and there’s a wide range of colours, including metallic paint for walls, if required.
Another International product for similar environments, International Intergard 740, is an epoxy finish coating made of two components. It can be brushed on or used as a spray metal paint application. Intergard comes in a wide range of colours, from white metal paint, all the way through the colour spectrum to black paint for metal. To view the extensive range of colours, see here.
Jotun Hardtop XP is also a protective coating used for steel structures that face challenging and aggressive atmospheric conditions. Hardtop XP is a polyurethane topcoat that can be used over a range of primers. The spray metal paint makes it easy to use on site and gives the best gloss finish.
Specifically formulated as a heavy duty steel tank lining, International Interline 975 provides massive resistance to corrosion for containers that store various oils and water. It’s a tough, glossy coating and totally safe for potable water. It’s also easy to apply using standard spray equipment, making on site application simple.
For walls in an industrial or maritime environment, Rust-Oleum B95 High Build Flexible Epoxy is virtually solvent-free and also has anti-corrosive properties. Ideal for concrete, brickwork or galvanised steel, B95 is flexible and will move along with the structure. It works particularly well on buildings that are subject to coastal weathering.
From huge marine structures and bridges to smaller indoor jobs, like painting radiators. Due to the temperature variations they endure, radiators obviously need specialist metal paint. Bedec Radiator Paint blends traditional and new development techniques to produce a fast drying metallic paint that won’t discolour when it’s heated. It’s available in white matt, satin or high gloss paint.
Enamel paint for your radiator is available courtesy of Coo-Var Radiator Enamel or Rust-Oleum Radiator Enamel. Both products are tough and specifically developed as heat resistant enamels that can withstand heat and give a durable, attractive finish for radiators. Rust-Oleum Enamel also protects from rust and is available in six colours, giving you loads of choice for the ultimate finish.
