This is our anti-corrosive red oxide. It is a general purpose paint suitable for all surfaces including steel, galvanized iron, concrete walls etc. The finish on galvanize will be a nice gloss sheen.
Unstable surfaces such as flaky galvanize need to be thoroughly cleaned and primed before oxide is applied. The best primer to use in conjunction with this product is our MIO Alkyd primer in grey/green or buff. All other surfaces need to be clean before application.
You will need approximately 1 liter of paint for every 5 square meters of galvanize sheeting that you have to cover. We recommend applying a second coat, you won’t use as much paint on the second coat as on the first.
White spirits is the best thinning agent for this product if you are applying with a sprayer. If you are using a brush or roller, we recommend that you do not thin out the paint.
19 liters of anti-corrosive red oxide costs €60 and delivery is another €6.76 per can. We offer a next day delivery service to anywhere in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland when you order before 13.00.
Please note; we make our red oxide in batches of 50 cans at a time. We endeavour to make the batches as close to each other as possible colour wise however sometimes it is not feasible to get an exact match from one batch to the next. We ask you to keep this in mind if you are re-ordering and hoping to match a colour. If you’re in doubt, call us on 044 9371228 for advice.
