Great Stuff

"I used this to undercote a trailer chassis and found it to be excellent. Very easy to apply with great coverage. I gave my trailer two coats and still have 1/2 tin left. Great value."

Red Oxide Primer
3 Jun 2013
By Smithy06
, Falkirk
"Awsme Stuff!
Covers well on bare metal and prepainted surfaces. Two coats required.
I have painted my Triumph Spitfire chassis with this stuff, and am impressed, nearly got two coats of whole chassis from one 750ml tin. Not scrimping either!
Don't know how much protection it will give but it goes on so good I thought I would add a review (not like me)!

Good paint at good price

"Use this on the stationary engines I restore as well as everything else round the workshop. Sprayed on it goes on a treat, covers well and gives a good build when built up with several coats. At the price its excellent stuff."

Great value primer
25 May 2012
By Pingouin
, Derby
"It's good, and at a very good price. It dries quickly, but as someone else mentioned, it's runnier than the camembert in Michael Palin's cheese shop (although the cat won't eat it). So make sure to mask the floor!"

"This stuff is awesome. Bought it to paint my RSJ before installation. Goes on easy and dries fairly quickly. One coat gave a very good covering but I did 2 just to be on the safe side. It makes a dramatic difference to the appearance of whatever you're painting."

does what it says on the tin
11 Jun 2011
By daventryhandyman

"i have been using this on my narrow boat and it works well. The paint must be stirred thoroughly before using, but it goes on well. You need to either have the area well ventilated or be prepared to get a head ache etc after prolonged use"

Great for rusty metalwork
28 Feb 2014
By Diver23
, South Glos.
"I have been using this as a base coat on my old concrete mixer. It goes on easily and covers bare metal and old paint equally well.
I've used two coats for maximum protection, but a single coat would probably be fine on metalwork not subject to as much wear & tear.
Highly recommended.

Seems good
13 Dec 2013
By Welshrestorer

"Bought having read previous recommendations from others. It goes on well and provides a good finish ready for the application of top coat(s).
Have only rated 3 stars on perf and reliability because it's too early to tell yet."

Good economic metal protector
12 May 2012
By Holdstrong
, London / Southwest
"Reasonable quality with no complaints that paints on well. It seemed a bit thin but went on well to produce a good coating and can easily be built up by applying a second coat. The proof of the puddiing will be how long it lasts."

good solid product

"Good traditional red oxide covers well and appears to be tough once dry. You do need good ventilation."
