At A Glance...

  • Accepts all paint types – Polyurethane, Epoxy, Chlorinated, Rubber, Car paints, etc.
  • Ideal for difficult conditions such as marine environments
  • Stabilises the surface whilst penetrating the substrate, driving out excess moisture and air
  • Provides a solid stable layer that other paints can firmly adhere to
  • Minimal preparation required – eliminates the need for sandblasting
CIP Corrosive Inhibiting Primer

CIP (Corrosive Inhibiting Primer) is a rust inhibiting primer. Suitable for finishing with both single and 2-pack paints and finishes. It contains the anti-corrosive properties of Owatrol Oil which enable it to stabilise the surface. It does this by penetrating deep into the substrate, driving out excess moisture and air to form a solid stable layer.

CIP is easy to use and does not require sand or shot blasting first. It can be used on new and rusted surfaces – both interior and exterior and is fine for use on horizontal and vertical surfaces.

It will not dissolve or break down when even high solvent paints and finishes (urethane, epoxy, chlorinated rubber, synthetic, etc.) are applied to it. Making it perfect to use as a primer for 2-pack paints. The brick red pigmentation also provides enhanced protection and film-forming qualities.

With Owatrol’s CIP, sand or shot-blasted surfaces do not require immediate priming as a light rust coating will not affect its performance or the final result.

CIP’s enhanced corrosion protection and strong surface make it perfect for use in extreme climatic conditions such as in the marine environment and in tropical areas and it has excellent chemical resistance too. Its excellent adhesion means that it also performs exceptionally well on clean, bright steel – typically a difficult surface to coat.

Ideal uses for CIP rust inhibiting primer

  • Outstanding for high performance in severe conditions such as marine or tropical environments
  • Resisting corrosive fumes
  • Protecting motor vehicles
  • Avoiding rusting on construction equipment
  • Protecting ballast tanks of ships
  • Inhibiting rust development on everyday items such as railings and gates
  • Perfect protection where a high resistant paint or two-pack finish is necessary
  • Priming steel superstructures
  • Outstanding adherance on clean bright steel

Always read the Corrosive Inhibiting Primer (CIP) Technical Data Sheet before using and follow the instructions carefully.

Surface Preparation

Surfaces must first be clean, dry and free from oil, grease and other surface contaminants. Remove all mill scale; loose and flaking rust and old paint back to a sound surface and edge and feather in any sharp edges. Any surfaces exposed to chemicals (acids, alkalis or salt deposits) should be washed using copious amounts of water or steam cleaned. Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent.

Application Tools

  • Brush
  • Roller
  • Airless Sprayer (0.4 mm x 80˚ @ 1860-2000psi (128-138 bars))

Application of CIP Corrosive Inhibiting Primer

Stir well before and during use.
Do not thin.

Applying CIP to new surfaces

Prime with 1 coat of Owatrol CIP and allow to dry. For surfaces subject to aggressive climatic conditions apply 2 priming coats.

Applying CIP to clean, lightly rusted or new unpainted rusty steel

Apply 2 coats of Owatrol CIP allowing drying time between coats.

Applying CIP to old or severely rusted surfaces

Either apply 3 coats of Owatrol CIP allowing drying time between coats or apply wet on wet applications of Owatrol Oil until the rust is fully saturated and allow to dry for 24 hours and then apply 2 coats of Owatrol CIP allowing drying time between coats.

Applying CIP to previously coated surfaces

First spot prime all exposed metal with 2 coats of Owatrol CIP allowing drying time between coats and then apply a 3rd coat over the entire area and allow it to dry.

Clean Up

Clean all tools and equipment with white spirit while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper.

NOTE: Any rags, steel wool etc. soaked in CIP may spontaneously catch fire if
improperly discarded. Rags, steel wool etc. must be saturated with water after use or placed in a sealed, water filled metal container, before disposing with household waste.

Things to Remember

  • Cover everything you do not wish to paint.
  • Apply between 5˚C and 35˚C.
  • Do not apply in direct sunlight or on to hot surfaces.

    Primes bare metal and rusted areas really well. Used to protect against corrosion of roof rail channels where water gathers on my narrowboat. Recommended to a boating colleague too.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Worked perfectly for the badly rusted and pitted deck in my bow lockers, highly recommended
