METAL PRIMERS

primers
Metal sealers

Primers, or sealers, are products suitable for the preliminary treatment of the metal surface and perform the dual task of effectively protecting the substrate from corrosion and allowing adequate adhesion of the entire painting system.

Two types of primers can be distinguished, waterborne, wuth a recognised low environmental impact and solventborne with a better drying time.

Waterborne primers “mono” and “bi” components for metal. Optimal protection and preparation of the metal substrate for a significant aesthetic result in full respect of the environment.

Waterborne Primers

Solventborne primers for metal: effective and efficient allies in the care and preparation of metal for optimal protection, from carpentry in general to the anti-corrosion sector.

Solventborne primers

METAL ENAMELS

Polistuc vernici per metallo
Coatings-epoxy
Metal topcoats

Enamels are pigmented topcoats applied as last coat to provide to coated substrate an optimal aesthetical aspect and protection to corrosion and atmospheric agents.

Enamels are products dedicated to light and heavy carpentry, agricultural and earthmoving machinery and bodywork, suitable for both industrial and handmade applications.

“Mono” and “bi” component waterborne enamels and converters for metal. Optimal aesthetic quality, technical performances in line with the most common solventborne enamels.

WATERBORNE ENAMELS

Solventborne enamels and converters for metal: efficient screen resistant to atmospheric agents and daily use, compliant with the standards required by the sector.

SOLVENTBORNE ENAMELS

METAL DTM

Carpenteria leggera
Metal DTM

Direct To Metal (DTM) term identifies a self sealers families, which combine the adhesion and protection characteristics of the substrate, typical of a primer, with the aesthetics, color and brilliance of a finish enamel. Present on the market since some years, these products have a great success and are now widely used in many sectors, thanks to their versatilty and ease of use.

“Mono” and “bi-component” waterborne pigmented DTM for metal. Aesthetic quality, protection, versatility and low environmental impact in a single coating product.

Waterborne DTM

Solventborne DTM for metal: technology and innovation in metal painting for the anti-corrosion and carpentry sectors.

SPECIAL PRODUCTS

Sport, Urban and more

Polistuc Metal offers a series of additional products for alternative uses than metal painting. These products are used in alternative sectors, thus completing the brand’s offer.

Protective coatings are coatings suitable for the protection of spray booths or for the temporary protection of surfaces. The traffic island paints Urbanova are suitable to delimiting more or less large areas of road surface. They are only suitable to private use.

Finally, Sport Paint waterborne coating for natural or synthetic turf is suitable for tracing lines or areas necessary on various types of sports fields.

CERTIFICATIONS

As confirmation of the high technological and quality standard of its coating systems, Polistuc Metal is proud to announce the achievement of new approvals and certifications.

Polistuc Metal boasts homologation certificates for its painting systems, according to UNI EN ISO 12944: 2018

The standard takes two factors into account when protecting steel from corrosion:

Environmental corrosivity: the standard classifies environments into different categories which are then evaluated on the basis of their ability to corrode unprotected steel: The categories are C1, C2, C3, C4 and C5 and each is then divided into a classification that goes from very low to very high. A new category has also been added, CX (Extreme) for offshore and industrial environments with high humidity.

Coating durability: The standard provides guidance on the expected life of a coating until its first significant major maintenance. Also in this factor a classification is applied: L (up to 7 years), M (up to 15 years), H (up to 25 years), VH (over 25 years).
