Bradite Fastrac Fast Drying Enamel is a direct to metal high performance silicone and polyurethane alkyd coating with rust inhibiting pigmentation for added protection. It is available in either Gloss (ME53) or Satin (SE53) finishes.

Best Uses

Fastrac Fast Drying Enamel is best used as a direct-to-metal decoration of ferrous metals. Alternatively it can be used as part of a finishing system for more demanding exposure scenarios. It is perfect for the protection and decoration of ferrous metals in many home projects such as fencing, gates and other ironmongery. Fastrac may also be used to paint previously painted or primed timber. In addition it is ideally suited as a refinish for agricultural, construction and earth moving equipment, having inherent high flexibility, moderate heat resistance and good resistance to mild chemicals, oils, hydrocarbons and sun light.


Application and use should always conform to the codes of practice described in BS 6150 and BS 5493

Brush and Roller – supplied ready for use. Use natural bristle brush, tapered and flagged, for best appearance. Thin, if required, with 0 - 5% white spirit. 

Conventional Air Spraying - Thin with 10 - 20% white spirit as required, tip size – 1.5 mm, tip pressure 60psi (0.4MPa) approximately.

Remove all rust scale, loose mill scale or other corrosion products by scraping and mechanical cleaning to SIS-St 3 (ISO 8501-1:1998). Bradite TD39 industrial strength detergent, washing and rinsing should be used with scrubbing to remove grease or oil. Intact areas of existing coatings should be roughened by abrasive manual or disc sanding, feathering back to a sound coating edge. Cracks and pits should be filled using a suitable metal filler before painting. Substrate should be dust free and completely dry before coating.

For unpainted softwood timber, knots should be sealed with a proprietary knotting compound and then primed with a proprietary quality wood primer. Unpainted hardwood & resinous timber substrates should be primed with a proprietary aluminium wood primer.

For industrial maintenance applications, high pressure steam cleaning to remove all loose, flaking paint and contamination back to a sound surface, is highly recommended.
