Product Description

Centrecoat Zinc Phosphate Primer 580 is a white spirit based, single pack, quick drying primer for the protection of structural steel against corrosion.

Best Uses

Centrecoat Zinc Phosphate Primer 580 is suitable for interior or exterior use on structural steel and iron. Ideal as a tough and durable primer suitable for recoating with standard white spirit based alkyd top coats such as Centrecoat Fast Dry Gloss. Centrecoat Zinc Phosphate Primer 580 provides an anti corrosion system in just one day with excellent flow.


Centrecoat Zinc Phosphate Primer 580 can be applied by brush or roller. It can also be applied by air or airless sprayer for large areas. Substrate must be dry and clean, free from contaminants. Remove grease, oil and all other surface contaminations by alkaline or high pressure (steam) cleaning in combination with appropriate detergents. For optimum results remove rust, rust scale, mill scale and deteriorated coatings by abrasive blasting to Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1 : 1988), blast profile max. 50 μm. If blasting is not possible, remove loose rust and loose coatings by scraping and/or wire brushing to St 3 (ISO 8501-1 : 1988). Sand previous coatings which are in good condition to remove gloss and to roughen the surface slightly. The surface must be clean and dry during application.

To ensure homogeneity, coating materials should be thoroughly stirred prior to use.
