  1. 1
    Surface Preparation

    Remove all loose rust or flaking paint by wire brush or sand paper. Abrade and roughen all smooth surfaces with medium to coarse sand paper. Wash surface down with Rust Rite Wunda Clean and rinse with clean water. Ensure surfaces are dry and free from grease, oil, salts and chemicals.

    Galvanized Iron:
    Wash surface with Rust Rite Galv Prep.
    Rinse well with water.
    Apply a single coat of Rust Rite Multi-Purpose Metal Primer.
    Apply Rust Rite as a top coat.

    Aluminium & Stainless Steel:
    Lightly abrade surface until rough.
    Wipe surface clean with Rust Rite Brush Cleaner & Thinners.
    Apply Rust Rite as a top coat.

  2. 2
    Application

    By Brush or Roller: Stir paint well before and during use. Apply the 1st coat by lightly brushing and making sure the full surface and all edges are well sealed and covered. Ensure excess paint is removed and the coating is evened out.  Apply a thick 2nd coat as soon as previous coat is dry (1-2 hrs). (Minimum film thickness of 120 microns is needed). When painting large flat areas it is recommended that you only use a roller or spray application to achieve a satisfactory finish.

    By spray: Dilute Rust Rite with a mixing ratio of 10% with Rust Rite Thinners. Set spray equipment to 25/35 psi; adjust spray gun to full fan width, apply 3-4 coats, allowing a drying time of 1hr between coats. Shake spray gun during use to ensure an even colour and pattern.  Ensure final coat is heavy enough to flow to a smooth, gloss finish avoiding runs and sags. No other thinners or solvent is recommended as this will affected the curing and drying time of the product.
