FAST DRY WROUGHT IRON BLACKS
Tuff-Boy Fast Dry Wrought Iron Blacks are quality enamels formulated with
alkyd resins and rust inhibitive pigments to provide a durable, protective
coating for wrought iron or other ferrous metal. These quick drying products are
the product of choice for production work where a fast handling time is needed.
The semi-gloss sheen has excellent mar resistance. When used in conjunction
with Tuff-Boy Rust Stop Primers, these products provide excellent corrosion
protection for all ferrous metal surfaces. These products are not intended for
residential use and may be applied only in industrial or shop applications.
Tuff-Boy Fast Dry Wrought Iron Blacks are recommended on properly prepared
ferrous metal surfaces. These products are an ideal choice for ornamental and
decorative metal surfaces. They may also be used on heavy equipment,
machinery, or structural steel. These products are not intended or recommended
for residential use, and are classified as “Industrial Use Only”.
Tuff-Boy Fast Dry Wrought Iron Blacks are self-priming, but to achieve
excellent corrosion protection we recommend using Tuff-Boy Rust Stop
Primers due to the fact that a color change will aid in getting two good coats of
paint, and thus a good film build. If self-priming, we recommend two coats of
paint, and a minimum 4.0 dry film thickness. Prime aluminum & galvanized
metals with Tuff-Boy #1015 Butyl Wash Primer or #5-56 Acrylic waterborne
The surface to be painted should be dry and free of any dirt, chalk, loose or
peeling paint, grease, mildew, oil, rust, or other foreign contaminants. Grease
and oil must be removed via solvent cleaning per SSPC-SP1. If you have any
questions about proper surface preparation, check your surface preparation
guide or consult your Farrell-Calhoun representative.
