I have two outside lights made from diecast aluminium/zinc (aka Mazac)
where the paint has come off in big flakes because the primer (in any)
has not adhered to the metal. I have used a bead blaster at work to
clean off the white powdery surface back to bare metal.
Please can anyone point me to a source of etch primer that I can use to
get a good key into the metal surface. Ideally this would be brush or
I only need small quantities so a retail source would be ideal.
Knew I'd seen it somewhere . . . . .
http://www.decoratingdirect.co.uk/ but single pack it 27quid for 5l :-!
A quick google reveals many sources of 500ml tins, but mainly fancy stuff
from International & the like at 16quid.
I notice from a technical sheet on it that it uses phosphoric acid as the
etching agent, the same as is found in Jenolite rust treatment, could that
be a cheap alternative to the real stuff?
