Owatrol AP60 is an anti-corrosive primer for protecting both new and old rusted surfaces. It penetrates below the residual rust, saturating it, and seals the underlying sound surface to form a stable layer. This gives exceptional protection against corrosion and weathering and creates a strong, stable layer for other finishes to adhere to. AP60 can be over-coated with any single pack paint or can be top-coated with Owatrol Deco 7 available colours. It uses Owatrol Oil alongside pigments and resins picked specifically for their anti-corrosive properties.
AP60 is suitable for use on all types of surfaces – as well as metal it can be used on plastics, wood, fibrous cement and more.
Galvanised surfaces do not require pickling prior to use. In addition, AP60 can also be used on brand new metal, adhering exceptionally well to clean, bright steel.
It is perfect for use on automotive parts, fibrous cement roofs, machinery, steel structures, fences, railings, guttering and more.
Ideal Uses for AP60:
First clean and dry all surfaces to remove oil, grease and other contaminants. Then remove all mill scale, loose and flaking rust and old paint to create a sound surface and then feather in any sharp edges. Surfaces that have been exposed to chemicals should be washed using lots of water or steam cleaned. Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent.
Clean, Lightly Rusted or New Unpainted Rusty Steel
Apply 2 coats of Owatrol AP60 allowing the recommended drying time between coats.
Heavily Rusted Surfaces
Previously Coated Surfaces
Clean all tools and equipment with white spirit while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper. Store and maintain equipment as directed by the manufacturer.
NOTE: Any rags, steel wool etc. soaked in Owatrol AP60 may spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. These must be saturated with water after use or placed in a sealed, water-filled metal container, before disposing of with household waste.
Things to Remember
Do not overcoat Owatrol AP60 with paints containing hot solvents i.e. Xylene, fast-drying enamels, 2 pack epoxies etc.
