How to Apply Professional Aluminum Primer
STEEL: Scrape and wire brush or power tool clean to remove loose rust, scale and deteriorated coatings. Use 7569 Red Primer for sound rusted or clean metal before application of a finish coat. 7582 Gray Primer is best for clean metal but may be used on sound rusted metal as well.
PREVIOUSLY COATED: Previously coated surfaces must be sound and in good condition. Smooth, hard, or glossy finishes should be scarified by sanding to create a surface profile. Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead.
Apply only when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C) and relative humidity is below 85% to ensure proper drying. Protect surrounding area from overspray. Overspray can carry a significant distance. Shake can vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. If mixing ball fails to rattle DO NOT STRIKE CAN. Contact Rust-Oleum. Shake often during use. Hold can upright 10-16" from surface and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Keep the can in motion while spraying. Apply 2 or more light coats a few minutes apart to avoid drips and runs.
