Primers For Metal Pre-treatment
Firwood's selection of etch primers and solutions includes rapid dry chromate free etch primer which is a rapid drying pre-treatment for application to non-ferrous metals such as zintec sheet and galvanised metal to promote adhesion for subsequent coats of paint.
This primer was developed to have the advantage of a single pack etch primer but without the normal drawback of a very low flashpoint, common in many single pack etch primers. It is suitable for stoving or air drying to ferrous and non-ferrous metals that have been cleaned and is formulated free of zinc chromates to reduce toxicity risk.
Firwood also provide mordant solutionwhich is a reactive chemical solution used as a pre-treatment for galvanised surfaces to aid the adhesion of subsequent coats of paint. It is supplied as a blue solution that has a characteristic blackening effect on the galvanised surface to indicate that the treatment has been effective.
