Phoenix Metalfix 1000
Designed for application onto non-rusted surfaces, such as new or clean steelwork, new or weathered aluminium, new or weathered galvanised steel, plastic, timber, etc, to form a non-toxic film. The coating is the “twin sister” to METALFIX, which is designed mainly for application over well-rusted steel. METALFIX 1000 does have a slight rust converting action, and can be used over lightly rusted steel work (e.g, new steel bearing a “rust bloom”) where it cures into a tough abrasion-resistant skin which is impervious to further rusting. The coating will operate from minus 40 degrees Centigrade to up to 1000 degrees Centigrade and, if required, may be overcoated with any other top coat, whether oil or water based.
Suitable: for non-rusted metal surfaces such as new steel, aluminium, galvanized metal, plastic and even timber. Can also be used in conjunction with Metalfix on lightly rusted surfaces with some high rust patches. Coat the rust patches with METALFIX, allow to dry, and then coat the entire surface with METALFIX 1000.
