Metal surfaces should be wire-brushed to remove rust.
Where long-term protection is required an initial treatment of a rust-inhibitive product such as red lead or zinc phosphate should be used.
Loose or blistered paint should be removed, as should tar-based paint systems.
New galvanised surfaces should be roughened with a wire brush.
Stir well before use.
Apply by brush or roller.
One coat is sufficient on most substrates however two coats are recommended.
The first coat should be allowed to dry (normally 2-4 hours depending on weather conditions) before the second coat is applied.
