Promain’s Paint Specification For A Train Carriage

The product that has been suggested is Rustoleum Peganox. You can apply via brush. Peganox is a water based coating. It is ideal for the renovation of train carriages.

Therefore, we recommend use of Peganox Metal Cladding on roofs. It will prevent rust and weathering, chemicals and impact. Additionally, it is available in a range of different colours. Not only does Peganox offer you excellent protection, you also get a fantastic aesthetically pleasing finish.

  • Good corrosion protection and waterproofing
  • Smooth aesthetic satin finish
  • 200% elastic coat does not crack or peel
  • Excellent flow, ideal for roller/brush application
  • Primer and topcoat in one

Furthermore, you can apply Noxyde Peganox Metal Cladding Paint by a brush or roller. Amazingly, it is touch dry within 1 hour. As a result, after 6 hours you will be able to apply a second coating of Peganox. Subsequently, this saves you time in the process. For instance, an adhesion coat, add 25% water to the Peganox.
