Metal Ready

Metal Ready is specifically developed to work in partnership with POR-15 and gives your metal surface ideal surface adhesion.

Do not use other metal prep products since many of them contain harmful residues which prevent the proper adhesion of POR-15 Rust Prevention paint.

Metal Ready creates the ideal anchor pattern for POR-15 and is safe and easy to work with.

After thoroughly degreasing your surface apply Metal Ready to both neutralise and remove rust.

Surface rust removes in minutes. Allow up to half an hour and repeat if necessary.

Do not leave it on for long periods. Rinse off with water and allow to completely dry.

After drying it will give a salt and pepper look. This is normal with the Zinc Phosphate adhering to the metal.

It's not necessary to use if the item has been sand blasted.

Metal Ready also etches new clean bare metal (new metal always has an oil based preservative on it) and allows for better adhesion of POR-15 to any paint coating.

It is not caustic, toxic or flammable. If used in marine application we suggest that you contact us.

Available in 250ml, 500ml, 1 Litre, 4 Litres

POR-15 Metal Prep (Metal Ready)

Interesting Facts you should know about steel and prepping it before you coat it with POR-15:

In every car manufacturing facility, steel in different parts of the car body often comes from different steel mills and different production lots, and the surface texture varies with the condition of the steel mill rolls which cold roll the steel to its final thickness.

Also, surface cleanliness varies with the mills cleaning procedures, especially the procedures used to control carbon smut is actually baked onto the steel during the high temperature annealing process which follows rolling.

This carbon smut is impossible to remove except by mechanical abrasion.

Rust varies with the care taken in handling (1) at the steel mill, (2) during transportation and storage, and (3) during fabrication.

Steel stored for a long time with rust inhibiting oil will react to form an incomplete oxide known as oil stain.

The result of all this is that ordinary steel varies widely in the manner in which it accepts coatings.

Although some commercial steel provides an excellent surface for coatings, you are just as likely to find steel which gives poor adhesion and poor rust resistance, even with good coatings.

Often the same mill will produce both very good and very poor surface quality, depending upon a number of uncontrolled factors.

Nearly all the above problems can be overcome by using POR-15© Metal Ready before you coat your steel.

POR-15© Metal Ready is an inexpensive insurance policy that guarantees perfect adhesion of POR-15© Rust Preventive Coating to any metallic surface every time.

Whether you paint your car or your fence or your outdoor furniture, the problems are always the same, because you dont know anything about the steel youre painting or what mill it came from, and you cant learn anything by just looking at it even if you have perfect vision!
