Armstead Trade Red Oxide Primer is a high-performing metal primer with excellent adhesion and rust inhibiting properties that prevent the spread of corrosion. It is suitable for use on both interior and exterior ferrous metal surfaces.

Applying Armstead Trade Red Oxide Primer

For ease of application and best results, ensure all surfaces are sound, dry and free from grease, wax and oil before priming.
