This specification covers a slow drying red iron oxide, zinc chromate, raw linseed oil and alkyd primer for steel. It has excellent rust inhibitive characteristics, good wetting ability, about 24 hours drying time, and good resistance to weathering for normal periods before field coating.
This primer is suitable for exposures in Environmental Zones 1A (interior, normally dry) and 1B (exterior, normally dry), and is intended for brush or spray application over steel surfaces prepared in accordance with SSPC-SP 2, "Hand Tool Cleaning." The performance will be improved by a better degree of surface preparation. It is suitable as a shop primer, field primer, maintenance primer, or intermediate coat and is to be applied in accordance with SSPC-PA 1, "Shop, Field, and Maintenance Painting of Steel." If the primed part of the structure is to be exposed to the weather, it should be topcoated as soon as practical.
