CRC/Barcode Name Pack Size
Aerosol 400 ml 6

CRC Prep It is a single pack high build easy-sanding metal primer with a grey finish. Formulated with anti-corrosive zinc complexes, it outlasts most high build primers by inhibiting corrosion and forms a quick-drying protective coating with excellent adhesion to bare metal.

CRC Prep It is ideal as a general purpose primer and filler coat over bare metal or as an intermediate coat over CRC Zinc It, Prime It, Rust Converter or Etch It or to facilitate high build and prepare surface prior to finish coating. It can be applied directly over CRC polyester automotive fillers.

High build and easy sanding allow for surface preparation to promote a top quality high gloss topcoat finish. Choosing a product of CRC’s Zinc Coating range as topcoat will provide maximum protection and a superior finish. If other colours are required, CRC Prep It is compatible with most standard decorative paint systems for metals.
