Preparation

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.
Application

Always follow the manufacturer's instructions found on the tin. We recommend testing a small area before painting the entire surface to ensure compatibility.

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
FAQ's

Q. Does Dulux Trade Metalshield Zinc Phosphate Primer offer corrosion resistance?

A. One of the primary purposes of this primer is to provide excellent protection against corrosion on metal surfaces. The zinc phosphate content in the primer forms a protective barrier that helps prevent the underlying metal from rusting or corroding.

Q. Does Dulux Trade Metalshield Zinc Phosphate Primer adhere well?

A. Dulux Trade Metalshield Zinc Phosphate Primer has excellent adhesion properties, allowing it to bond effectively with various metal substrates. This strong adhesion helps the subsequent layers of paint or topcoat adhere better to the surface, leading to a longer-lasting and more durable finish.

Q. Is Dulux Trade Metalshield Zinc Phosphate Primer easy to apply?

A. The primer is designed for easy application, allowing for smooth and efficient coverage. It can be applied using a brush, roller, or spray gun, depending on the specific requirements of the project. Following the manufacturer's instructions ensures optimal performance.
