The first question to answer is what is a primer for? Here are some answers:

  • Substrate adhesion – maximising adhesion between metal and the protective paint.
  • Increasing durability of the coating system.
  • Preventing contamination on the metal staining the topcoat.
  • Sacrificing itself to provide galvanic protection.

So, primer has lots of benefits, and zinc primers are used when protecting metal to maximise on these benefits.

Here you’ll find a selection of single and two pack primers
