Manufacturer: Marathon Coatings
Marathon Primagalv is a fabrication / shop primer based on a synthetic polymer containing 92% Zinc. This is left in the dry film of the coating to act as a rust Inhibitor and offering long term protection of the substrate. Often used on steel in areas where corrosion will be imminent such as gates, railings and barriers in costal or roadside environments. Can be over coated for cosmetic reasons with a wide range of topcoats. Primagalv is ideally suited to spot priming, rust prevention and touching up of galvanised steel.
- Easy to use, single pack product
- Quick Drying
- Contains 92% Zinc by weight in the dry coating
- Excellent cathodic protection against rust
- Alternative to galvanising
