Ferrous Metal Primer is a superior rust-proofing coating for iron and steel when used prior to the application of FPE paints. This primer offers good hiding power and is recommended for interior and exterior use to seal metal surfaces and provide good adhesion for final coats. For maximum durability, use two coats of Ferrous Metal Primer. Ferrous Metal Primer is off-white in color.
Surfaces contaminated by oil or grease should be cleaned with a solvent. Rust and loosely adhering particles should be removed by a wire brush or emery cloth.
Tools: Use a first quality, clean, natural bristle brush (we recommend the Omega Small Flats, S57’s, or the Omega Large Full Oval S55-2; for exterior work or larger brush projects, we recommend the Omega Large Full Oval S55-2 or S55-3).
Please note: Fine Paints of Europe recognizes spray application as an excellent method to apply our coatings, however we do not consult on the specifications nor the equipment needed to do so.
Work area should be well ventilated.
