Always prime when painting. Since metal has a smooth texture, it’s difficult for paint to cling onto its surface. A primer can give an excellent adhesion between the topcoat and the metal surface to ensure a durable paint job.

Let Boysen Primeguard help you get a successful and long-lasting metal paint job!

Boysen Primeguard Can

Boysen Primeguard is a water-based metal primer that protects and gives metal surfaces the excellent adhesion they need. It is ideal for metal surfaces like galvanized iron, stainless steel, and aluminum.

Boysen formulated this product to give homeowners value for their money. It can help you make your metal painting job faster and easier. It only takes two hours to dry, which takes lesser time compared to enamel-based primers. You can even skip etching new metal surfaces like galvanized iron sheets (yero) if you choose Boysen Primeguard as your primer. In addition, you don’t have to worry about the clean-up because you can just use soap and water in cleaning the painting tools and spills.

We care for the environment just as much as you. That’s why we prioritize making our paints eco-friendly. Boysen Primeguard does not contain hazardous solvents or harmful chemicals like lead. It is also low in odor and non-flammable so you can rest easy knowing it is safe and harmless for DIY use.

When you buy a 4-Liter Boysen Primeguard, you can cover 25-30 sq. m. per coat depending on surface texture and porosity.
