STEP FINISH – PAINT RIGHT OVER RUST
HAMMERITE is a self-priming quick-dry gloss paint coating.
HAMMERITE is designed for use on rusty metal and most other metal surfaces,
without the need of a primer.
GLASSGUARD PROTECTION: As the HAMMERITE coating dries, millions of heat-hardened
glass flakes interlock with the special resins forming a super-tough
barrier that seals out moisture to prevent rusting.
The Quick-dry Smooth finish contains no silicones or aluminum.
HAMMERITE is a long-lasting coating that can be applied directly over
a firm, rusty surface. Aluminum, galvanized and zinc sprayed surfaces
require a prime coating of HAMMERITE GALVANIZED AND ALUMINUM PRIMER.
HAMMERITE Galvanized and Aluminum Primer dries to touch in 1-2 hours
@ 60ºF (16ºC). Allow primer to dry 24 hours before applying
finish coat. HAMMERITE aesthetic value and rust protection properties
make a durable coating for exterior applications on residential and
commercial projects. Some suggested uses are:
1. Exterior doors, mail boxes, wrought iron, ventilation pipes/fittings.
Wheel barrows, swing sets, snow
blowers, lawn mowers, fences, storage sheds, etc
2. Playground equipment, recreation vehicles, boat trailers, etc.
3. Architectural structures, tank farms, machinery, theme parks, transportation
equipment, above water marine applications, etc.
4. Frames, wheels, bumpers, trailer hitches, under car and truck carriages,
trunk areas, floor trays, etc.
Remove all loose rust, paint and millscale. This can be achieved by
scraping, sanding or wire brushing. Remove all dirt, oil, grease, salt
contamination from ocean or street salt, and mildew, using an approved
cleaner, fresh water and a commercial mildew remover. Rinse surface
thoroughly and let dry before continuing. Smooth or hard, slick surfaces
must be deglossed or abraded by sanding or grit blasting. A new or clean
metal surface that is very smooth and/or glossy, or non-porous MUST
be sanded with a minimum 80 grit sandpaper. DO NOT use any rust converter,
or any other acid or conversion type product to clean or prepare a rusted
surface before applying a Hammerite coating. Aluminum and galvanized
surfaces require a prime coating of HAMMERITE Galvanized and Aluminum
Primer. Professional painting practice required previously painted or
shop primed surfaces must be "patch" tested for compatibility.
Apply HAMMERITE to a small area and expose for 72 hours minimum and
check for adhesion and any signs of lifting or cracking, etc.
Read and follow all application and precautionary information. Shake
can for two or three minutes after activating ball and occasionally
during use. Spray light, even coats, holding the container upright approximately
8” to 12” from surface being painted. Three to five coats
will be required to eliminate any pinholes and thin spots to achieve
the 4 mil dry thickness required to keep moisture from penetrating the
coating. The final coating must be thick enough to flow to a smooth
even finish with a well-defined pattern, but not heavy enough to run.
Make sure all corners, edges and heavily pitted areas are adequately
coated. All coatings can be applied as soon as the previous coating
is dry to touch, about 15 minutes. All coatings must be applied within
one hour or after 10 days cure time. After use, invert container (turn
upside down) and spray to clear valve of the paint coating.
