Premium Metal Protection & Hi-Temperature Metal Coating


  • A single pack water-based primer which is designed for application onto non-rusted surfaces, such as new or clean steelwork, new or weathered aluminium, new or weathered galvanised steel, plastic, timber, etc, to form a non-toxic film. The coating is the “twin sister” to METALFIX, which is designed mainly for application over well-rusted steel. 
  • The METALFIX 1000 does have a slight rust converting action, and can be used over lightly rusted steel work (e.g, new steel bearing a “rust bloom”) where it cures into a tough abrasion-resistant skin which is impervious to further rusting.
  • The coating will operate from minus 40 degrees Centigrade up to 1000 degrees Centigrade (Black is the only Hi-Temp colour), and, if required, may be over coated with any other top coat, whether oil or water based. 
  • Special Features: Gives off no fumes
  • Easy to spray or brush
  • Goes over wide range of surfaces
  • Gives stable surface plus tough paint skin
  • Can take any top coat, if required
  • Quick overcoating times.
  • Water wash up (no solvents)
  • Etch-primer for Zinc and Aluminium
  • Non-toxic in the dry state
  • Fire-retardant properties
  • Single pack (no wasted mixes)
  • Can be mixed with cement powder (to repair damage to tanks, pools etc)

HOW TO USE METALFIX 1000: Remove any flaking material from the surface using a hand wire brush, remove any oil or grease contamination with undiluted Endura “FLOORPREP”, and wash the surface with a 10% FLOORPREP solution. Rinse off with clean water and allow to dry. Apply the METALFIX 1000 by brush, roller, or spray (airless or conventional). When spraying, reduce the yield stress in the paint by stirring with a high speed stirrer (e.g, a mixing blade in an electric drill) which lowers the viscosity to that of a conventional paint. If the paint is cold, warm to at least 25 degrees Centigrade by immersing the container in hot water and stirring occasionally. Use large tip size and try to avoid adding water, although this may be added sparingly (e.g, 2 – 3%) to improve the paint flow. For surfaces which exhibit both severe and light rusting, after the preparation outlined above, apply the METALFIX over the areas of severe rust, and after allowing the paint to fully dry and cure, apply a coat of METALFIX 1000 over the entire surface.  


A single pack water-based rust-converting primer which is designed for application onto rusted surfaces to form a non-toxic film.

The product converts the rust layer into a metal phosphate and simultaneously cures into a tough abrasion-resistant skin which is impervious to further rusting.

The coating will operate from minus 40 degrees Centigrade to approaching 1000 degrees Centigrade, and, if required, may be overcoated with most other top coats, whether oil or water based. (NOTE: It is strongly recommended to do a test patch first when using a new top coat, before proceeding with the total project.)

NOTE: METALFIX is available from PaintRight Devonport in the colours of Ferric Red, Black, and Light Grey, however the Ferric Red version is the highest performance version and should be used in all circumstances wherever possible, especially in hostile environments. The Black version has slightly better high temperature performance.
