How to apply Galvanic Spray

  1. Clean rust from the surface you intend to spray, use a wire brush if you have one
  2. Next grease stains should be removed with a solvent, it is essential that the surface you wish to paint is dry, clean and free from contaminants to ensure optimum adhesion
  3. The aerosol needs to be shaken vigorously for one minute after you can hear the mixing balls start to move. The surface should be sprayed at a distance of 25/30cm, applying thin fast layers first horizontally, then vertically
  4. After the base coat is applied it is advised to apply two thin layers rather than one thick one to ensure uniform coverage and avoid the risk of painting running
  5. When you’ve finished spraying, invert the can and press the nozzle until only air comes out, this will leave the nozzle clear of paint ready for its next use

Recommendations for Galvanic spray

We recommend applying to previously painted surfaces. If the paint is well adhered we suggest using sandpaper to rough up the surface and aid adhesion. If the paint is not well adhered it must be removed first using paint stripper (see Greenox Paint Stripper) or a sander.

If you wish to achieve an alternate colour finish we suggest either Pintyplus Basic or Pintyplus Evolution (available in RAL colours)

Galvanic spray should not be applied to objects whilst connected to electricity and should be sprayed in a well-ventilated area
