• This product is best applied over itself
This product is recommended for a variety of uses: as a
penetrating sealer over tightly adhering rusted surfaces, as a
sealer/finish coat for concrete surfaces, as a bonding primer over
glossy and hard-to-coat surfaces such as galvanized steel, stainless
steel, zinc, chrome, copper, brass, aluminum, and other nonferrous
metals. Red Oxide Primer will also
bond to hard slick surfaces, such as porcelain, Formica®, and other
nonporous surfaces. Actual spread rate will depend on the
substrate porosity and application technique.
