An anticorrosive brushing primer / undercoat with excellent flow and gloss hold out. Available in a wide
range of colours with high opacity, to ensure that most colours cover with one coat of undercoat and
one coat of topcoat. The product can also be sprayed if required, particularly if there is requirement for
a low odour primer/undercoat.

Intended use


Typical uses are for brushing buses, coaches or Historic Vehicles.

Can also be used on Narrow Boats (above the water line), Traction Engines and Agricultural Equipment.

Occasionally (mainly if items cannot be sprayed) can be used as a refurbishment or maintenance primer/undercoat for items such as :

  • Inside buildings: Machinery, fixed plant, moveable equipment, fork lift trucks, trolleys, frames, guards etc.
  • Outside buildings: Exterior surfaces of tanks, pipework and process plant, towers, bridges or any structure which is not part of a building

See also the Manor supplementary information sheet 'Guide to the UK VOC legislation' to understand how the VOC content of a coating determines its suitability for use in any application.

Suitable substrates and preparation

  • Untreated steel; for best results blast clean prior to painting to SA 2 1/2, otherwise manually abrade using powered hand tools and abrasives to ST2.
  • Previously painted steel; remove rust back to sound metal. Remove loose or flaky paint. Bring forward by patch priming. Sound previously painted surfaces should be lightly abraded prior to application in order to promote adhesion. Remove dust. Remove oil or grease with Panel Cleaner. If using a waterborne degreaser remove fully. Test a small area prior to painting.
  • Aluminium and galvanised steel; abrade and pre-treat with Manor Wash Primer, Manor Chromate Free Wash Primer or Manor 1 Pack Etch Primer in accordance with data sheets for these products.
  • Other substrates; seek advice from Manor Coating Systems Technical Department
