Selecting the Best Metalcare Solution

Plascon Metalcare is a range of products developed specifically to protect and enhance the appearance of metal surfaces
in three simple steps:

  1. Clean – to remove dirt or grease.
  2. Prime – to protect the metal and improve the adhesion of paint to the surface.
  3. Paint – to beautify and protect the metal.

From gates and garden furniture to boundary fences and carports, the Plascon Metalcare range has a cleaner, primer, and paint for every type of metal surface, and every condition.

So how do you select the right combination of Metalcare products for your project?

Ask yourself the following few questions:
  • - What surface am I painting? Mild steel, galvanised iron, or aluminium?
  • - What type of condition is it in? Is the surface rusted or painted?
  • - Do I want a water-based or solvent-based solution?
  • - Do I want a quick-drying product for spray application, or a brushable product for general DIY purposes?
  • - Finally, how durable I need the solution to be? Do I require a standard or a premium solution?

Now consult our product charts to identify the right cleaner, primer, and paint for your project. You see? Metalcare made easy:
