Red Oxide Primer

Witmans Industries PVT. LTD. is a one of the leading manufacturer and supplier of Specialty Chemicals in India. We offer products like specialty lubricants, process oils, plasticizers, industrial paints, spin finishes, and textile conning oils, including red oxide primer which are a type of primer used to prepare metal surfaces for painting, providing corrosion protection and enhancing paint adhesion. It is typically a solvent-based resin or water-based emulsion.

These red oxide primer is manufactured by mixing red iron oxide pigment with a binder, such as alkyd resin or acrylic emulsion, along with additives such as drying agents and extenders. The mixture is thoroughly blended to ensure uniformity and then dispersed to remove any air bubbles. During application, the primer forms a protective layer on the metal surface, preventing rust and promoting adhesion of the topcoat paint.

Application Details:

Application method: Air spray/brush

Recommended thinner: Witcoat Q.D. Thinner

Film thickness (dry): 20-25 microns (by dft meter)


Surface Preparation:

Remove oil grease with suitable detergent solution and other contaminants by high pressure fresh water hosing.


Application Conditions:

Apply only on a dry and clean surface, with a temperature above the dew point to avoid condensation.



As a general rule, inhalation of solvent vapour or paint mist and eye and skin contact with the liquid paint should be avoided. Forced ventilation should be provided when working with solvent borne coatings in confined spaces or stagnant air. Even when ventilation is provided, respiratory, skin, and eye protection are always recommended when spraying. In addition, national and local safety regulations should be followed.


Corrosion Protection: Provides a protective barrier against rust and corrosion on metal surfaces.

Adhesion Promotion: Enhances the adhesion of the topcoat paint to the substrate, ensuring long-lasting paint finish.

Surface Sealing: Seals porous surfaces and fills minor surface imperfections, creating a smooth and uniform surface for painting.

Weather Resistance: Withstands exposure to harsh weather conditions, including sunlight, rain, and humidity.

Quick Drying: Dries quickly to touch, allowing for faster painting and recoating.

Versatility: Suitable for use on various substrates, including metal, wood, concrete, and masonry surfaces.

Compatibility: Compatible with a wide range of topcoat paints, including both solvent-based and water-based paints.

Easy Application: Applies easily with brushes, rollers, or sprayers, providing even coverage and smooth finish.

Cost-Effective: Offers cost-effective protection against corrosion and extends the lifespan of painted surfaces.

Environmental Friendliness: Available in low VOC formulations, reducing harmful emissions and environmental impact.

Applications of Red Oxide Primer

Metal Surfaces: Used for priming metal surfaces such as iron, steel, aluminum, and galvanized metal to prevent rust and corrosion.

Structural Steel: Applied to structural steel beams, columns, and frames in construction projects to provide long-term corrosion protection.

Automotive: Used for priming automotive parts, chassis, and body panels to prevent rust and improve paint adhesion.

Machinery and Equipment: Applied to machinery, equipment, and industrial components to protect against corrosion and prolong service life.

Marine: Used for priming marine vessels, boat hulls, and marine equipment to withstand exposure to saltwater and harsh marine environments.

Pipeline Coatings: Applied as a primer for pipeline coatings to protect against corrosion in oil, gas, and water pipelines.

Architectural: Used for priming architectural metal surfaces such as fences, railings, and metal roofs to prevent rust and extend durability.

Industrial Applications: Used in industrial facilities, factories, and warehouses for priming metal surfaces exposed to moisture, chemicals, and harsh conditions.

Maintenance Painting: Applied during maintenance painting projects to prepare metal surfaces for repainting and extend the life of existing coatings.

DIY Projects: Used by homeowners and DIY enthusiasts for priming metal surfaces in outdoor furniture, garden tools, and home improvement projects.
