A selection of products designed to properly prepare galvanised metal surfaces for painting.
If a galvanised metal surface is not properly etched before painting, the paint will not fully adhere to the surface. This has a major effect on both the lifespan and protection of the paint. this makes etching an important step when painting any galvanised metal surface.
One product that can be used to etch a galvanised surface is mordant solution. This is a blue liquid that blackens the surface when applied, indicating that the treatment has been effective.
Etching primer is another product suitable for use on a galvanised surface. This also acts as a primer for metal, allowing the topcoat to be used directly over it.
