Universal Metal Primer is a high-performance, one-component, quick-dry, rust-inhibitive metal primer, formulated for use on ferrous metal substrates. The phenolic alkyd resin formulation allows for a wide variety of intermediate and finish coats. The quick dry and recoat times allow for fast turn-around of production work. The barrier protection that this product provides, as well as the rust inhibitive pigmentation, leaves a film that prevents corrosion for many years. Additionally, this product may be used as a tie coat over existing coatings that will be finished with a high performance coating. It provides corrosion resistance for both interior and exterior steel surfaces.

  • High solids content
  • Quick drying; can be recoated in 4 hours
  • Ideal for use in metal shops and industrial maintenance
  • Can be applied with electrostatic sprayers (once the product is polarized)
  • Suitable for USDA-inspected facilities
