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.
