Fast dry metal primer is an anti corrosive, quick drying, solvent based metal primer undercoat for ferrous metals. Our metal primer is intended for mild steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, cast and wrought Iron. Touch dry in 15 minutes, it’s ideal for spray application. Gives excellent protection to your surface before application of Fast Dry Gloss top coat.

Fast dry metal primer undercoat is ideal for situations where you need to apply a primer quickly and easily. Gives long term protection due to modified zinc phosphate, making it great for use on machinery, tools, structural steel, scaffolding and more.

If you are using a rust remover, note that some rust removers (based on phosphoric acid) tend to leave an electrically insulating film on ferrous metals. We advise you not use these or to remove them with an appropriate cleaner before applying our fast dry metal primer.

  • Solvent borne
  • High build, protective finish
  • Anti-corrosive
