GOOD – but
Alkyd / long oil types – possibly long drying
Chlorinated rubber – possibly long curing, softer but dry eventually
Nitro solvent based – can soften
Water based vinyl emulsions – need intermediate primer to avoid bleed
Solvent based vinyls – require intermediate acrylic bond coat
PRIMERS CONTAINING THE FOLLOWING PIGMENTS SHOULD NOT BE APPLIED OVER FERONITE RUSTY METAL PRIMER
Zinc dust (zinc rich primers)
Copper powder (anti-fouling paints)
Carbon black (in high concentration, e.g. in conductive paints)
Feronite Rusty Metal Primer contains anti-corrosive pigments, therefore the use of the above primers would have little if any additional anti-corrosive protective effect.
Some primers contain a strong solvent which can leach a trace of tannin which leads to a brown streak appearing. This is not recommenced rusting, and subsequent painting will conceal the streaking.
Epoxy undercoats followed by polyurethane topcoats are most recommended for marine applications.
