Product Description

Centrecoat Rapid Dry Primer is a fast drying primer with good anti-corrosive properties and is suitable for steel and metal substrates.

Centrecoat Rapid Dry Primer is an environmentally friendly, economical, general purpose primer designed for general sheet metal fabrication and structural steel work. Rapid Dry Primer is available in black, red, grey or white, giving you a choice of decorative finish.

Best Uses

Centrecoat Rapid Dry Primeris a high build phosphate shop primer, offering quick drying times and has been developed especially for internal structural steel work, offering good corrosion resistance and resistance to sag.


Centrecoat Rapid Dry Primer can be applied using brush or roller, however we would recommend the use of an airless sprayer, as the tendency to run or sag is greatly reduced when using this method. This product is touch dry after just 30 minutes and has a theoretical coverage rate of 5.6m2 per litre when applied at 180 microns WFT.

This product is recommended for direct application to steel only, rather than being applied over existing coatings.

Surface and Environment

Centrecoat Rapid Dry Primer is highly suited for application to most steel surfaces found commercially, industrially or in a construction based environment.
