Surface Preparation

  • Remove all scale; loose and flaking rust and old paint back to a sound surface and edge.

  • Surfaces exposed to chemicals (acids, alkalis or salt deposits) should be washed using copious amounts of water or steam cleaned.
  • Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent.
  • Abrade new wood surfaces with 120 grit paper to open the woods pores and dust off. Wash with denatured alcohol (methylated spirits) to remove any sanding residue.
  • Oily, resinous and greasy woods should be thoroughly degreased with denatured alcohol (methylated spirits), acetone or similar solvent based product NOT White Spirit.

Metal Surfaces:

New surfaces excluding aluminium surfaces:

  • Prime new metal and galvanised surfaces with 1 coat of Owatrol Oil or AP.60 and allow to dry 24 hours.
  • Apply 1 or 2 coats of RA.85.
  • For new metal surfaces subject to aggressive climatic conditions apply 2 coats.

New aluminium surfaces

  • Apply 2 coats of RA.85 allowing drying time between coats.
  • Clean, lightly rusted or new unpainted rusty steel.
  • Apply 2 coats of RA.85 allowing drying time between coats.

Old severely rusted surfaces

  • Apply wet on wet applications of Owatrol Oil until rust is fully saturated and allow to dry. Saturation is indicated by a uniform glossy appearance to the surface when Owatrol Oil is dry.
  • Apply 2 coats of RA.85 allowing drying time between coats.

Previously coated surfaces

  • Spot prime all exposed metal with Owatrol Oil or AP.60 depending on severity of rust and allow to dry.
  • Apply RA.85 to primed areas to bring level with existing finish, allowing drying time between coats.
  • Apply 2 coats of Owatrol RA.85 over entire area; allowing drying time between coats.

Wooden Surfaces:

New surfaces

Previously coated surfaces

  • Spot prime all exposed surfaces with Owatrol Oil or AP.60 depending on condition and porosity of the wood, allow to dry.
  • Apply RA.85 to primed areas to bring level with existing finish, allowing drying time between coats.
  • Apply 2 coats of RA.85 over entire area; allowing drying time between coats.
