PHOENIX Metalfix

Article number: P-1821
Availability: In stock

PHOENIX Metafix is a unique water based rust converting primer that forms a tough non-toxic skin over rusted surfaces. It converts the rust into a metal phosphate within the paint film and simultaneously forms a highly protective abrasion-resistant skin which is impervious to further rusting. It tolerates temperatures from minus 40 up to 1000 degrees Centigrade, and being water based it can be safely used in confined spaces. These properties mean it is useful in a wide range of industrial and domestic settings. 

This blog post outlines some of the possible uses for Metalfix and Metalfix 1000

Suitable: for rusted metal only. Don't use on non-rusted surfaces, since it could attack the surface and lead to rust staining through the final coat. Use Metalfix 1000 on non-rusted surfaces. 

Can be used in conjunction with fibreglass matting to repair non-structural rusted holes in surfaces such as steel water tanks, gutters, roof panels, and the trays of utilities or pick-up trucks.
Metalfix will take any type of topcoat. See further FAQ's on Metalfix
