RA85 Aluminium Paint

RA.85 Aluminium Paint is a flexible, anti corrosive coating that holds the deep penetrating and adhesion properties of Owatrol Oil.

RA.85 will restore even rusted and corroded surfaces to an acceptable appearance and give lasting protection while greatly prolong the life of the surface.

Perfect for interior or exterior use, RA.85 can be used on things such as grates, fences, roofing, pipes, machinery, plumbing etc and can be applied to both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

RA.85 has excellent abrasion resistance, withstands chemical attack and is ideal in aggressive climatic conditions where a high resistant finish is necessary.

RA.85 was originally developed for use in the shipping industry and quickly became a favorite cargo hold coating.

Ideal uses for RA.85 Aluminium Paint

  • Anti corrosive aluminium finish with intense high gloss look.
  • Excellent penetrating and adhesion properties due to the binding properties of Owatrol Oil – Does not peel or flake.
  • Perfect for rejuvenating rusted surfaces.
  • Ideal for aggressive climatic conditions. Withstands chemical attacks.
  • Very good film-forming qualities (adhesion, flexibility, even film).
  • High temperature resistance up to +175 °C.

Always read the RA.85 Product Information before using and follow the instructions carefully.

Surface preparation

Remove all scale; loose and flaking rust and old paint back to a sound surface and edge.
Feather in any sharp edges.
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.
Abrade new wood surfaces with 120 grit paper to open the woods pores and dust off. Wash with denatured alcohol (methylated spirits) to remove any sanding residue.
Oily, resinous and greasy woods should be thoroughly degreased with denatured alcohol (methylated spirits), acetone or similar solvent based product NOT White Spirit.

Application

Stir can well before and during use.
Do not thin.

Metal Surfaces:
New surfaces excluding aluminium surfaces

Prime new metal and galvanised surfaces with 1 coat of Owatrol Oil or AP.60 and allow to dry 24 hours.
Apply 1 or 2 coats of RA.85.
For new metal surfaces subject to aggressive climatic conditions apply 2 coats.

New aluminium surfaces

Apply 2 coats of RA.85 allowing drying time between coats.
Clean, lightly rusted or new unpainted rusty steel.
Apply 2 coats of RA.85 allowing drying time between coats.

Old severely rusted surfaces

Apply wet on wet applications of Owatol Oil until rust is fully saturated and allow to dry. Saturation is indicated by a uniform glossy appearance to the surface when Owatrol Oil is dry.
Apply 2 coats of RA.85 allowing drying time between coats.

Previously coated surfaces

Spot prime all exposed metal with Owatrol Oil or AP.60 depending on severity of rust and allow to dry.
Apply RA.85 to primed areas to bring level with existing finish, allowing drying time between coats.
Apply 2 coats of Owatrol RA.85 over entire area; allowing drying time between coats.

Wooden Surfaces:
New surfaces

Apply 2 coats of RA.85; allowing drying time between coats.
Damaged, soft, punky or porous wood surfaces
Prime with Owatrol Oil and allow to dry.
Apply 2 coats of RA.85; allowing drying time between coats.

Previously coated surfaces

Spot prime all exposed surfaces with Owatrol Oil or AP.60 depending on condition and porosity of the wood, allow to dry.
Apply RA.85 to primed areas to bring level with existing finish, allowing drying time between coats.
Apply 2 coats of RA.85 over entire area; allowing drying time between coats.

Restrictions

Do apply RA.85 direct to new metal (except aluminium), alloys inc’ steel and galvanised surfaces as galvanic corrosion caused through contact with moisture and air can occur.

Clean up

Clean all tools and equipment with white sprits while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper.
NOTE: Any rags, steel wool etc soaked in RA.85 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.

Maintenance

Maintenance is easy and frequency will depend on the conditions that the coated surface is exposed to.
Thoroughly clean all surfaces to be coated ensuring any oil, grease and other surface contaminants are removed.
Remove all loose and flaking material and feather in any sharp edges.
Apply a single application of RA.85 to all areas where exposed metal or rust is showing through, allow to dry.
If desired a further application of RA.85 may be applied to the entire surface.

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 to hot surfaces.
