Benefits

No Primer Required

TRIFLOW can be applied directly to all types of ferrous metal, including bare metal, rusty metal or previously painted metal without the use of a primer. For use on galvanised steel or non ferrous metals see "Where can it be used?"

Easy Flow Formula

TRIFLOW is specially formulated to be easy to brush on. It does not become sticky on the brush during use.

Contains Anti-Corrosion Agents

TRIFLOWs anti-rusting agents continue to work to resist rust formation after application.

Drip resistant on vertical surfaces

TRIFLOW resists running and sagging when applied to vertical surfaces.

How to use TRIFLOW Total Metal Care

Before you start

Make sure the surface is clean and dry. Degrease by wiping over with white spirit. Remove any loose rust with abrasive paper or a wire brush. TRIFLOW can then be applied directly. No primer is required for ferrous metal.

Application

Stir well before and during use. Do not thin. Apply thick even coats. On previously painted metal in reasonable condition 1 thick coat should suffice. On bare metal 2/3 coats are required. Typical dry time is 1 to 2 hours dependent on conditions and thickness of coat applied. Apply further coats within 8 hours or wait 3 days before doing so. Coverage 4-5 square metres per litre.

Aftercare - Clean Up

Remove as much product from the brush as possible. Wash out brushes in white spirit. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings. Do not empty into drains or watercourses.

Wise Precautions

Special Precautions should be taken during the surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metals as they may contain harmful lead. To avoid risk of spillage, always transport in a secure and upright position.
