MIL-P-28577B Fast-Dry Red Oxide Primer
COLOR(S): Red Oxide.
PRODUCT TYPE: Waterborne Rust-Inhibitive Primer.
DESCRIPTION: This fast-drying primer was developed from the latest in waterborne technology to provide water resistant and corrosion resistant film when used over metal surfaces. Due to its unique formulation, this material will not cause flash rusting to steel, and is faster drying than many waterborne systems. This is a high quality protective finish which meets or exceeds the quality of many conventional solvent borne systems. Due to recent legislation limiting use of solvent containing materials and local fire department jurisdictions limiting the use of flammable materials, this product is an excellent alternative to using a solvent-borne system.
