GOOD

Enamel

Alkyd

Acrylic solvent based

Acrylic water based (but many are unsuitable for steel protection).

Epoxy

Coal Tar Epoxy

High build epoxies

Micaceous iron oxide

Synthetic resin

Catalysed urethanes (2 pack)

 

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)

Zinc chromate

Zinc phosphate

Strontium chromate

Copper powder (anti-fouling paints)

Magnesium borate

Graphite

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.

 

NOTE

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.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Epoxy undercoats followed by polyurethane topcoats are most recommended for marine applications.
