1. As a post primer on all steelwork it provides immediate protection while drying rapidly enough not to pick
up debris from adjacent blasting operations.
2. As a first coat for rapid in-plant maintenance systems in corrosive environments where it is desired to apply\
2 - 3 coats on the same day.
3. For universal repair and maintenance.
4. As a drip primer for awkward shapes, e.g. egg crate flooring.
5. As a primer on PVC gutters.
1. Excellent adhesion to steel, galvanized iron, aluminium and rigid PVC.
2. Quick drying to dust-free stage.
3. Will stand careful handling after 30 - 60 minutes.
4. Can be coated with most finishes after 2 hours.
5. Reduces undercreep of rust when used as the base of a high build system.

Method: Brush, roller or spray.
Thinning: Lacquer Thinners.
Thinning ratio: Airless spray: 5%

Cleaning: Lacquer Thinners.
Conditions: Temperature between 5 C and 40 C. Relative humidity of less than 85%,
preferably between 10:00 and 16:00.
Drying time: 2 hours.
Recoating time: Epoxies: Minimum 2 days.
Other: Minimum 2 hours.
Maximum: One month (self weathering limit)
Surface must be sound, clean, grease free and dry before painting.
1. Steel For small areas, manual cleaning combined with GP Cleaner/water mixture (1:5) and
scouring pads may be used. In maintenance situations, grit assisted HPWB is
preferred as it will also remove salts from pitted areas. The steel must be allowed to
dry fully before priming; however it is necessary to use an inhibitor in the water.
2. Galvanised steel Treat with GP Cleaner/water mixture (1:5) with scouring pads. Wash off all residue
3. Other surfaces Remove all loose materials and degrease with GP cleaner/water mixture (1:5) and
Rinse with clean water.
4. Maintenance Clean back to sound substrate by the most suitable of the above methods. Do a
test area to confirm that existing paintwork will not be lifted. If it is, it must be
blasted or stripped off.
1. The film build is too low to give safe self weathering beyond one month.
2. The acid component can interact with epoxy curing agents, so ageing for at least 2 days is recommended
before overcoating with epoxies.
3. Thicker coatings take longer to dry thoroughly.
