Rustbuster Custom 421 is the perfect base for priming steel, aluminium and GRP bodywork. It will not absorb moisture so rust will not form within the primer if left exposed for long periods, unlike soft and porous easy-sand primers. Custom 421 is therefore ideal for the home auto restorer and garages that do not have the benefit of a controlled body shop environment.
Custom 421 can be over-painted with single-pack cellulose or two-pack finishes after a light sanding with a P320 abrasive.

|Application & recoating||Brush or spray.
A second coat or topcoat can be applied any time after approx. 8 hours* with no need to abrade between coats. If recoating or top coating once the first coat has fully cured (after approx. 7 days), lightly abrade first with P320 paper.
* At 20 degrees centigrade. Longer intervals may be required in colder conditions.
|Spraying||Minimum 1.8mm nozzle or an HB (high build) primer set up. Test atomisation on a test panel first. Viscosity will vary, i.e. thicker in colder temperatures. Data correct at 20c.

|Pot life||Pot life is the time from mixing the two components to the point at which the mixed paint is no longer useable. For Custom 421, you have 2.5 hours of pot life once mixed at 20c – longer at colder temperatures.|
|Shelf life||We recommend storing upside down in a dry place at around 20c. In these conditions, the product has a shelf life of 12 months.
Do not store below 20c as this can affect performance.
|Disposal||Allow any excess mixed paint to cure in your mixing cup and throw it away as dry waste.|
|Cleaning||Clean up with standard thinner or gun wash. Do not thin the paint with standard thinner as this will affect the paint cure.|
|Safety||Use in a well-ventilated atmosphere. Use a respirator face mask when spraying or brushing in an enclosed space. Please see the MSDS (material safety data sheet) in our data sheet area.
Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye protection.
