DESCRIPTION:

Warrior Direct to Metal Acrylic is specifically formulated as a superior anti-corrosive, non-toxic metal primer and topcoat with excellent adhesion.

USES:

Warrior Direct to Metal Acrylic can be applied as a primer coat and finishing coat to wrought iron, mild steel, prepared rusted surfaces, fences, handrails, gates and most metal surfaces.

SPECIFICATION OR RECOMMENDED PAINT SYSTEM:

The surface should be sound, clean, dry, and free from grease and rust. Stir Warrior Direct to Metal Acrylic thoroughly with a flat paddle before use.

WHEN USED AS A PRIMER COAT:

  1. New steel: Abrade smooth and shiny mild steel with coarse sand paper to ensure good adhesion. Rinse well with solvents such as thinners or turps.
  2.  New Galvanised iron: Clean thoroughly with Warrior Galvanised Iron Cleaner to ensure that all oils are removed. Rinse thoroughly with water and allow to dry.
  3.  Old steel: Remove all loose and flaking material by wire brush or sanding. Rinse thoroughly with water and allow to dry.
  4.  Previously Painted Surfaces: Remove by scraping, wire brushing or sanding all soft powdered, blistered, loose or flaking paint. Gloss or semi-gloss surfaces must be lightly sanded with a fine abrasive to provide a good key for subsequent coats.
