Painting Interior Metal

When doing interior metal, we require a product that can handle everyday washing as well as being hard wearing. Here we look at five different substrates and how to treat them:

  1. New – If the surface is not primed, sand surface with a scouring pad and sugar soap solution, rinse with clean water. Apply one coat Panache anti-corrosive metal primer (two coats in coastal areas). Apply one coat Panache Universal Undercoat, followed by two coats of either Panache high gloss enamel water-based or solvent based) or Panache Polyglo (water-based or solvent based).
  2. Previously painted and sound – Sand surface with a scouring pad and liquid sugar soap solution, rinse with clean water. Apply one coat Panache Universal Undercoat, followed by two coats of either Panache high gloss enamel water-based or solvent based) or Panache Polyglo (water-based or solvent based).
  3. Flaking – Remove all loose and flaking paint with a paint stripper. Sand surface with scouring pad and sugar soap solution, rinse with clean water. Apply one coat Panache Universal Undercoat, followed by two coats of either Panache high gloss enamel water-based or solvent based) or Panache Polyglo (water-based or solvent based).
  4. Rust – Sand the rusted areas with a scouring pad and sugar soap solution, rinse with clean water. Apply two coats Panache Anti-corrosive metal primer, followed by one coat Panache Universal Undercoat. Apply two coats of either Panache high gloss enamel water-based or solvent based) or Panache Polyglo (water-based or solvent based).
  5. Yellowing – Sand the surface with a scouring pad and sugar soap solution, rinse with clean water. Apply one coat Panache Universal Undercoat. Apply two coats Panache water based High gloss or Polyglo as these have non-yellowing properties.
