About rust and corrosion:
Both iron and steel are prone to rust because they’re generally exposed to air and moisture. Rust forms when iron reacts with oxygen and water, it then creates a coating on the metal surface. When rust isn’t treated, the reaction (or oxidisation process) continues. This results in corrosion, which causes significant damage to metal (see HSE for more details).
A quality primer like Carboxide Metal Primer paint will provide longer term protection against rust and corrosion. Our customers say it works even when a surface has already begun to ‘ginger’ with rust.
What to order? Our industrial quality primer for metal has coverage of 12 – 14m² per litre and pack sizes range from 1L right up to 5L. If you need any help or technical advice call us Mon to Fri 8am to 5pm. Alternatively use our online chat service or send us an email.
