Direct To Rust Metal Paint July 13th, 2010
How to use your Hammerite Paint…
Remove all loose rust, dirt, grease and salt with Hammerite Brush Cleaner & Thinners and rinse with clean water. Allow time to dry.
For painted metal surfaces wash down thoroughly with diluted detergent, rinse with clean water and allow to dry. Paint a small test patch on the painted surface to ensure compatibility with existing paint. Any reaction will occur within the hour. If there is, remove all paint then wash down with degreaser. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry.
For smooth metal surfaces, lightly abrade for maximum adhesion.
On bare zinc, aluminium and galvanized metal surfaces use Hammerite Special Metals Primer before applying Hammerite Direct To Rust Metal Paint.
Note: Special precautions should be taken to avoid inhalation of dust during surface preparation of pre-1960’s paint surfaces as they may contain harmful lead.
Please refer to back of pack for specific application instructions.
