Everest Trade Paints - Water Based Ultimate Metal Primer is a water-based primer that can be used on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, inside and out.

This product is a water based acrylic primer paint with anti-corrosive properties to prevent rust formation, this product should be applied to bare metal before applying any other acrylic based Everest Trade Paints topcoats.

Ideal for all types of metal implements, tools, structures in and around gardens, farms, houses and factories. Ultimate Metal Primer is quick drying, easy to apply and is easily cleaned up.

Ensure all surfaces are sound and clean, free from dust, dirt, grease, wax and flaking paint. Ensure surface is completely dry and free from condensation and damp. Smooth glossy surfaces should be lightly abraded to provide a key.
Remove any loose or flaking paint.

Non-ferrous surfaces: Lightly abrade to a bright surface. No need to etch or pre prime galvanised steel. Allow new galvanised steel to be weathered for two months before painting with Everest Trade Paints Metal Primer.

Ferrous surfaces: On mild steel remove as much rust as possible (preferably cleaning to Swedish standard SA2½) apply a first coat of Everest Trade Paints Metal Primer as shop primer, within two hours of cleaning
Mid Grey
Red Oxide

This product can also be mixed to any BS 4800 and RAL colours.

Approximately 8 - 12 square metres per litre per coat when applied by brush or roller depending on the texture and porosity of the substrate.

Spraying will considerably reduce the coverage rate depending on the type of spray equipment used. Airless spray systems for example coverage will be reduced to approximately 6-8sq meters/litre per coat. When using a tip size of 13-15 thou @ 50-70°angle and a pump pressure of 2500 P.S.I.
Touch Dry:      2-4 hours at 18°C

Overcoatable: 4 hours at 18°C

Fully hardened after one month. Ensure good ventilation during application and drying.

Brush, Roller, or Spray.

Apply by brush, roller, conventional H.V.L.P or airless spray. Stir well and check colour before use. Do not apply at air or surface temperatures below 8°C or when likely to rain before the paint has fully dried.

On ferrous surfaces some flash rusting may occur, especially if below the dew point. This is expected and will not affect the anti-corrosive properties of the product. In most cases only one coat is required but occasionally a second coat may be required to ensure maximum durability and build.

Store away from heat and naked flames. Secure lid between uses to prevent paint hardening.
Clean up with warm soapy water.

Remove as much product as possible prior to cleaning.
We recommend ordering all the paint required in one order so you receive the same batch, ordering on different dates will result in receiving different batches which may result in a shade difference.
This is fine if you are planning on using the different batches on different coats, However, it's not recommended to use on the same coat.

Spring clean with Premium Sealer

Very happy with the delivery service. As yet I have not used the sealer as bought in ready to use nearer to spring. I have used block paving polyurethane sealer on my drive in the past and have been delighted with the results. I trust this product will give me equal results.

Bad service

One word Joke
I paid for 24 hour delivery then chased up 3 times then had to pick the paint up

First class service

Delighted with the quality of paint and delivery all first class will let everyone know good firm to deal with. Many thanks
