Rust-Oleum Speedy Recoatable Metal Primer 569 Red / 580 Grey are fast drying primers based on a aromatic free modified short oil alkyd resin. The products contain rust inhibitive pigments and are lead- and chromate free

Recommended Uses

Rust-Oleum 569 / 580 should be used on new, blasted or slightly rusted steel surfaces
Rust-Oleum 569 / 580 are primarily intended for brush application and can also be applied by roller and spray.
Depending on the exposure conditions Rust-Oleum 569 / 580 can be recoated with a variety of Rust-Oleum Systems assuring the appropriate protection; e.g. at heavy industrial exposures a two-coat system of Rust-Oleum 569 / 580 and Rust-Oleum High Performance Epoxy System 9100; at light industrial exposures Rust-Oleum Primer 1060 / 1080 and/or a second Rust-Oleum Alkyd Primer followed by an Alkythane 7500


Theoretical: 12.8 m²/l at 35 µm dry 
Practical: Practical coverage depends on many factors such as porosity and roughness of the substrate and material losses during application.

Surface Preparation 

Remove grease, oil and all other surface contaminations by alkaline or high pressure (steam) cleaning in combination with appropriate detergents. 
For optimum results remove rust, rust scale, mill scale and deteriorated coatings by abrasive blasting to Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1 : 1988), blast profile max. 50 µm. 
If blasting is not possible remove loose rust and loose coatings by scraping and/or wire brushing to St 3 (ISO 8501-1 : 1988). 
Sand previous coatings which are in good condition to remove gloss and to roughen the surface slightly. The surface must be clean and dry during application.

Please read data sheets carefully prior to application.
