This is our anti-corrosive grey oxide paint. It is a general purpose paint farm paint suitable for all surfaces including steel, galvanized iron, concrete walls etc. It gives a great glossy sheen finish on galvanized sheds.
Unstable surfaces such as flaky galvanize need to be thoroughly cleaned and primed before oxide is applied. The best primer to use with this product is our MIO alkyd primer that is available in grey/green or buff. All surfaces need to be clean before application.
As a general rule of thumb, you will need roughly 1 litre of paint for every 5 square meters of galvanize that you are looking to cover. We recommend applying a second coat, you won’t use as much paint on the second coat.
If you are applying the oxide using a sprayer, you can thin it out using white spirits. We don’t recommend thinning the paint if you are brushing or rolling it on.
