Shield Red Oxide is an alkyd-based primer, which can be used on all types of metal surfaces except galvanized sheet. For that we recommend Shield Galvanized Primer. Shield Red Oxide is used to prevent rusting of the metal.
Before applying Shield Red Oxide, proper surface preparation is crucial. Remove any rust residue using a steel brush and sandpaper. Then clean surface with AZAR Thinner to remove greasy or oily residue, then wipe with a cloth or duster. Wait for the surface to dry and apply two (2) coats of Shield Red Oxide to surface.
Shield Red Oxide should be diluted with up to 20% of AZAR Thinner and can be applied using a brush or spray gun.
