The correct use: protective metal coatings

... many thanks to Nik H. for sending it in.

Nik wanted to give his garden fence a new coat of paint and decided on FARBENLÖWE's Halvar protective metal coating.

You can find out how this works and what you need here:

You need:
- protective metal paint
- possibly painter's tape to mask off the surface that is not to be coated
- paint roller, brush or airless spray gun
- If necessary, a thinner (this can also be used afterwards to clean the device.)

    Preparations and processing:

    1. The processing and especially the drying of the protective metal coating should not take place below 10°C. This information relates to the paint material, substrate and room temperature during processing and the subsequent drying and curing time.
    2. Dust sources should be removed.
    3. Use painter's tape to mask off the areas that are not to be coated. Stir the paint well before use.
    4. The surface must be sanded before use and be clean, dry and free of grease, silicone and wax. You should definitely remove loose old paintwork or rust beforehand. Important: Do not use soapy cleaners or scouring milk. (These are made from fatty acids and are therefore not suitable for dissolving fat.)
    5. A primer is not necessary. You can also use the protective metal paint as a primer.
    6. If desired, dilute the metal protective paint with approx. 5 - 10% thinner.
    7. Spray, roll or brush paint. 1-2 coats are recommended.
    8. The paint is dust-dry after 24 hours. The product can then also be painted over.
