Why do you say you can't use Hammerite on galvanised Mr Itch?

too. I was referring to the original Hammerite, the no primer paint
that can be applied over rust, which is what I think of given the term Hammerite. Saying Hammerite wouldn't make me think about their garage door paint either which can be applied to wood.
I wouldn't seriously expect n
either you or navver to use standard Hammerite on galvanised surfaces. Truthfully I'm not completely sure if the legs are [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Can you use the original Hammerite on zinc pacification though zinc is the active component in galvanisation........ Break I've been reading up on galvanisation while writing this I think the legs might be [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

So after meandering and rambling. I would'nt
expect either you or navver to use "Hammerite" (as in original) on a galvanised surface but I might well expect any number of people to say "Oh Phoenix used Hammerite on this thats good enough for me" not realising that all wasn't as met the eye.
I do also do tend to get a hissy fit at manufacturers of (particularly paints and wood treatment products) who give half arsed instructions. Some of you may know how much I hate the "It does exactly what it says on the tin" advert because the tin tends to say bugger all about the product.
I used to use woodcare products from Rustins. they are much more helpful with their printed instructions, they have a FAQ section on their website they will offer help by email and though not mentioned on their website will get a specialist to talk you through any issues if needed. They do still list a general phone number. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
My prissy attitude to product labelling is also spreading to useless uninformative product web sites as well it appears.
Though talking about "original" Hammerite I do realise that virtually all paints are now water based low volatile organic matter products to protect the environment. If some were more bothered about their painting rather than the rest of the world boat paints are still composed on traditional lines.
