Johnstone's Trade Smooth Metal Paint is a primer and top coat in one. A solvent-based gloss finish, it can be applied directly to bare, previously painted or rusted surfaces. It offers up to 5 years of protection, longer than a regular maintenance cycle with other similar products on the market.

Rich in anti-corrosive properties whilst maintaining excellent adhesion attributes, the Johnstone's Trade Smooth Metal Paint doesn't require a primer as it can be applied onto corroded surfaces and provides good resistance to water, humidity, hot salt spray and UVA. Particularly suitable for renovation of corroded substrates after the manual removal of loose layers of rust, it can also be used on steel cast iron and other steel elements.

Applying Johnstone's Trade Smooth Metal Paint

For best results, remove any flaking or peeling previous paint and remove as much rust as possible before applying 2 coats using a brush.

Customer Questions
Can this be used to paint lead flashing?

No, We would recommend priming the area with a Zinsser Bullseye and then applying Demi Dekk Ultimate

Can you apply this to galvinised steel?
Yes, The Johnstone's Trade Smooth Metal Paint can be applied to Galvinised Steel
Can this be used on a exterior metal staircase? Would it be Durable enough? Thanks
Yes, however this has no anti slip properties and is not designed to withstand being walked on. We would advise using an anti slip floor paint.
