SML SHIELD - Premium Yacht Primers

The SHIELD range are commercial primers that have been formulated for easy application by leisure users who do not have access to spray equipment and are available in smaller 2.5 litre tins.
For all metal - Use ST Epoxy Primer which bonds well to bare metal but is tolerant of less than perfect preparation, then High Build Epoxy to increase the thickness of the protective layer.

For bare GRP - Apply High Build Epoxy to repair and build up the GRP/gelcoat layer, easily sanded to provide a smooth finish ready for your topcoat.
For previously painted surfaces - Use Undercoat above the waterline and Underwater Primer below to form a good base for your topcoat or antifouling.

FORMULA

This means that when applied at the same spreading rate as competitor's products, Ballastic Black will provide a thicker coating which will give better corrosion protection and, perhaps more importantly, at a lower cost.
