(approximately halved for every 10⁰C increase), whilst lower temperatures will retard the drying times (approximately
doubled for every 10⁰C decrease.

Surface Preparation
New Work
1. Galvanised Steel: Clean fabricators oily pre-treatment with Rainbow Mordant Solution and apply etching
primer before painting.
2. Aluminium: Degrease and apply an etching primer.
3. Cement Roof: Cement must be clean, dry and free from grease before coating with a primer.
4. Previously Painted Surfaces: Surfaces must be in sound condition. Loose flaking paint should be completely
removed and bare areas spot primed with Rainbow Red Oxide Primer.
