Rhino Red Iron Oxide Primer Description

Red Iron Oxide Primer (RMP) is classified as a water-based, direct to metal primer. This primer is very high in solids – such as zinc and red iron oxide pigments – well known for providing a long-lasting and effective barrier against rust. RMP can be applied over existing rust to inhibit growth and is equally efficient at combating rust formation from taking place in the future. Additionally, our Red Iron Oxide is more environmentally friendly than most other traditional red iron oxide formulas, making it the best choice for your project.

Red Iron Oxide Uses

Rhino Shield Red Iron Oxide Primer is superior for the treatment of outdoor or indoor metals that are subject to rust. It can be applied to steel, aluminum, and galvanized metals to halt the development of rust and creates a smooth topcoat that is durable and less prone to peeling and cracking than many other metal primers. RMP can be applied to both interior and exterior projects and is most ideal for priming wrought iron fencing, metal window trims, steel roofing, and much more. Red Iron Oxide may be used as a primer under a variety of Rhino Shield topcoats.
