Paint for metal and rust: the long life of strong structures

Paint for metal and rust for interior and exterior work.

Among the anticorrosive compounds, several types of paints for metal are distinguished:

  • primers;
  • primer-enamel;
  • coloring.

All of them, regardless of the main purpose, can have, to varying degrees, the possibility of decorative processing of metal structures.

Note! Today you can find even priming compositions with a coloring effect, so it will be enough just to apply an extra layer of enamel, and no additional processing is required.

In addition, distinguish paint for metal and rust, depending on the composition. The most popular types:

  • oil;
  • acrylic;
  • epoxy;
  • nitro color;
  • alkyd.

Variety of paints for metal

For interior work, as a rule, use acrylic and oil paints. They are non-toxic, dry quickly and retain color well without direct negative impact. Nitro-enamel is also most often used for internal work because of its incompatibility with the humid environment. Although it is highly toxic at work, during the operat

ion of the room it poses no threat.

Acrylic and epoxy are more durable and have better adhesion, but are toxic enough not to be used indoors. Also for outdoor works, you can buy a paint marked "weatherproof" - this composition is designed specifically to take into account all external factors that are expected to cover on the street.

Paint for metal and rust 3-in-1

There are paints for metal structures, which prevent the appearance of rust, but they should be applied to a pre-prepared surface. For this:

  • removes signs of corrosion from the surface of the metal structure( fence, pipe or other product);
  • cleans iron of dirt, dust, grease;
  • if necessary - primed.

Rust can be removed mechanically, cleaning it from the steel structure with a hard abrasive, or with the help of a modern product - the "rusted" composition. It literally dissolves the signs of the destruction of the metal, after which it will be possible to proceed to the decorative finish.

Removal of rust

If you do not want to go a long way, preparing a product made of cast iron or steel for simple paint for metal, you can use the anti-corrosive composition "stainless steel".This enamel is essentially a complex 3-in-1 product, combining the tasks:

  • rust converter;
  • primer, which guarantees better adhesion;
  • decorative enamel coating.

3-in-1 metal paint is an ideal solution for quick and easy processing of metal structures.

Note! Before it is applied, however, large flakes of the corroded surface will have to be cleaned off, but the remaining thin layer will not have to be taken care of - the enamel will lie flat and after drying it will provide good protection from external factors and from the destruction of cast iron or steel under the coating.

Paint for metal with hammer effect

Separate and unique in its properties has a paint for metal and rust with a hammer effect. This is exactly what car enthusiasts, owners of boats and other vehicles have always dreamed of: the enamel is very resistant to the environment and is able to protect the metal from damage due to small impacts. In addition, the hammer paint differs:

  • is the highest level of protection against the effects of salts, precipitation, ultraviolet, water resistance;
  • increased level of elasticity;
  • the ability to mask unevenness on the surface of metal structures;
  • high adhesion;
  • by rapid drying;
  • with an unusual structural pattern that creates an artistic effect;
  • air permeability.

The combination of these useful qualities makes hammer paint an excellent choice for painting the machine or even for ship repair.

Application of paint with a hammer effect

The color range of paint for metal with a hammer effect corresponds to its sphere of application. It includes both standard black, white and other monochrome colors, and the ability to paint the product in copper, bronze, gold.

Note! For metallic paints, it is recommended to additionally fix the color and smoothness of the surface with a varnish.
