    To get the best results, ensure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry (new surfaces particularly must be fully dry) and free from grease, wax and oil. Use a suitable oil and grease remover to clean the surface if necessary.

    Bright new galvanized steel surfaces must be pre- treated with Dulux Trade Mordant Solution prior to application of the primer. Remove all loose or defective paint back to a firm edge. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead. Remove all loose scale and rust by thorough scraping and wire brushing.

    Where necessary or specified, surfaces should be blast cleaned to BS 7079 Part A1: 1989. Sa 2.5 to give an appropriate surface profile.


    Always follow the manufacturers instructions found on the tin

    Stir thoroughly before use.

    Apply 1 coat of Dulux Trade Metalshield Zinc Phosphate Primer with a brush or roller only. Do not spray. For best results and to ensure you get maximum protection, follow with 2 coats of Dulux Trade Metalshield Gloss or Satin.

    Aftercare & Storage

    Ensure that the lid is kept firmly closed at all times and store the paint upright in a dry environment, avoiding extremes of temperature
