All products are available in grey metal primer, for on site painting or Premier extra,a black gloss paint ready for installation. The primer paints used are RAL 7024 dark grey in colour and have been specifically formulated to create a barrier to corrosion. The primers can be over coated with Epoxy, Polyurethane or Acrylic paints. Products are coated internally and externally. The primer coated supplied products are classed as a transit coating and provide short term protection during delivery and undercover storage.
Hargreaves Premier Extra is an exterior coating, high solids, black gloss paint. Black is the standard painted product. High solids gloss paints offer greater durability than paints with a lower solids content. Other RAL colours are available upon request but surcharges would apply. All special RAL coloured products are delivered with a matching tin of touch up paint to make good on any exposure of bare iron as a result of transit and or installation damage.
Coastal regions are difficult to define,however Hargreaves guidelines, they are described as those areas within 5km of the coast.The conditions in these areas are more aggressive than those experienced in many other areas. It is therefore very important that any paint chips or impact / installation damage is rectified straight away. Failure to rectify damage at an early stage, will lead to corrosion of the product progressing at an increased rate above what would be seen at an inland location. To combat this aggressive environment, the overall coating thickness on the Premier Coastal products is much greater. This increased coating thickness forms a longer-lasting barrier between the environment and the substrate thus delaying the onset of corrosion.
