OSPHOOspho Metal Primer

OSPHO

Ospho Metal Primer

A metal treatment, that when applied to rusted surfaces causes iron oxide (rust) to chemically change to iron phosphate‹an inert, hard substance that appears black. Once dry, the treated surface can be overcoated with whatever paint system is desired. (Best results have been achieved with oil-base primers and topcoats. Test a trial sample before overcoating with epoxy or latex-based paint.) Application does not require the removal of light rust, however loose paint, rust scale, dirt, oil, grease and other accumulations should be removed first with a wire brush.

Comments about Ospho Metal Primer:

Used this product to restore a steel biological water treatment tank that was nearly in pieces. Strengthened the metal to stop the flaking and pitting and provided an excellent base for the high-temp paint.

    Comments about Ospho Metal Primer:

    I live in a beach environment with the usual heavy doses of salty air, fog and moisture. I used this product to primer my outdoor metal fences, gates, and doors. After taking the necessary precautions, it is very easy to use. Just wire brush surfaces, dry wipe off loose particles and brush on, let dry, then paint with desired coating. There is no need to reprep the painting surface in any way. I believe this to be the best product for this primer application, works like a champ! Im going on 2 years with zero signs of rust anywhere...
