  3. 3. HAMMERITE PAINT TECHNICAL GUIDE ‘DIRECT TO RUST’ AND ‘DIRECT TO GALV’ PAINTHammerite - protecting your metalHammerite offers an easy to understand range of paints to enable you to protect andrejuvenate metal. Hammerite offers technical excellence and quality you can count on.For information on the full range of Hammerite products and colour range please referto the Hammerite Guide To Total Metalcare.HAMMERITE ‘DIRECT TO RUST’ Better protection & corrosion resistance Up to 8 years rust protection when applied Thicker product forces consumer to apply sufficient as instructed product• Strong adhesion to ferrous metal surfaces 70microns dry film thickness means only 1 coat needed over previously painted metal Apply direct to rust Higher film build, therefore added protection No primer needed on iron or steel 2 coats recommended Easier to apply Silicone rich surface sheds water and dirt quickly Longer wet-edge/working time = improved Sag resistant applicationproperties (larger surface areas made easier). Rollable White Spirit Based Surface dry Available in Hammered, Smooth, and Satin finishes. In 2 hours, re-coat after 4 hours (depending on Available in aerosol conditions)
  4. 4. HAMMERITE ‘DIRECT TO GALV’ Easy to apply Only one coat required* Specially formulated for application straight on to the metal as primer and topcoat in one. Apply direct to metal Higher film build, means only one coat is need in most No primer needed in most cases cases. Long lasting Silicone rich surface sheds water and dirt quickly Surface dry Rollable 4 hours, re-coat (if required) after 6 hours (depending on conditions) Easy to apply Low odour *Over a strongly contrasting colour two coats may be required.

The table below may be used as a guide to the causes of adhesionfailure and the solution to avoid this occurrence before use of Hammerite Direct to Galv Paint: Cause of adhesion failure Remedy Surface contamination – oil and grease Degrease with dilute detergent Formation of soluble salts (particularly applicable Degrease with dilute detergent to weathered galv) Chromate factory pre-treatment Abrade to remove New galv with large and bright spangle predominatly Weather until dull before application of DTG or use zinc phosphoric acid etch primer followed by Special Metals Primer Corrosion of the zinc Refer to Surface Preparation section. Etch primers or ‘mordant’ solutions Only use phosphoric acid etch primer – other acid based primers do not cause adhesion failure but will affect the thickness of the galvanised coating Reaction between DTG and zinc (formation of fatty This is inevitable but sound surface preparation acid soaps) (degrease and abrade) and the selection of alkyd for this product maximises the adhesive strength of the product. Prolonged performance will result from the use of Special Metals Primer. 105% Any flaws in the painted substrate (scratches etc) can allow water to get under the dry paint film to encourage lifting of the paint particularly where water is allowed to stand or pool on the surface Sound surface preparation will prevent the product coming off in sheets where this does occur. High risk surfaces should not be recommended for application with this product (flat roofs must be avoided).
