White-Knight Metal Primer, just introduced by The Garland Co., is a single-component, moisture-curing primer for use on metal systems that require rust inhibitors or chemical corrosion resistance.
The all-purpose, aromatic urethane coating is recommended for use with urethane topcoats on stainless steel, galvanized metals, Galvalume-coated metals, copper, aluminum, and Kynar-coated metal roof systems, and as a base coat for Garland's White-Knight restoration system.
White-Knight Metal Primer is designed to maintain metals and protect them from rusting and breaking down.
Garland says White-Knight Metal Primer is easy to apply, durable, and adheres well to properly prepared metal surfaces.
"It's designed to maintain and protect metals from rusting and breaking down," said Tom Stuewe, Garland product manager.
The primer's resistance to mild industrial fumes and light chemical conditions make it suitable for use on aging industrial roofs in need of restoration, the company says.
The product has these characteristics:
VOC Status: 410 g/l
Flash Point:107°F (41.6°C)
Solids by Volume: 50%
Coverage: 0.25 gal./100 sq. ft. (0.10 m2)
Metal roof surfaces can be prepared for primer application by cleaning with a Trisodium Phosphate (TSP) agent or a nontoxic, biodegradable industrial cleaning solution such as Simple Green, the company says.
"When the basecoat is followed by multiple coats of White-Knight combined with Garland’s Ulti-Mat fiberglass or Grip Polyester Soft reinforcement, the resulting White-Knight restoration system cures to a durable, weatherproof, reinforced, and fully-adhered elastomeric membrane," the company says.
Based in Cleveland, OH, The Garland Company Inc. is a producer of high-performance roofing and building-maintenance products for the commercial, industrial and institutional markets.
