Johnstones Trade Smooth Metal Paint offering up to 5 years protection extending standard maintenance cycles. Johnstone’s Smooth Metal Paint offers anti-corrosive properties whilst maintaining excellent adhesion attributes. This product can be applied over unprimed, pre-primed and sound previously painted metal work and is particularly suitable for renovation of corroded substrates, after manual removal of loose layers of rust. It can be used on steel cast iron and other steel construction elements.
All surfaces should be sound, clean, dry and free from grease. Remove any crazed or flaking paint. Rub down sound glossy surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly to provide a key. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.
Stir well before use. Apply only by brush. The brush should be fully loaded for best results. One coat will provide adequate film build and opacity; however two coats will offer added protection and coverage. If more than one tin is to be used, intermix prior to use.
