Air Drying Paints & Primers

Air drying alkyd paints are coatings which produce a tough durable finish when applied to suitably prepared substrates. Drying primarily occurs from the evaporation of the carrier solvent, this is followed by a cross linking of the internal structure of the paint system.

We produce a broad range of alkyd or oil-based paints combining premium grade resins with high quality pigments and other additives to create a wide spectrum of stock and customer specific paints.

  • Quick drying enamels suitable for spray application onto steel fabrications and metal components.
  • Compliant air drying alkyds contain much lower levels of solvent to help reduce the impact of pollution to the environment. Suitable for use on steel fabrications where higher volumes of paint are used.
  • Medium drying machinery paints suitable for brushing or rolling onto industrial buildings, factory plant and floors.
  • Slow drying coach enamels, containing slower solvents and recommended for use where a higher smoother gloss is required over larger areas, typically railway stock and transport finishes.

Paints give a cost effective finish which rapidly dries to provide a tough durable coating. Available in a range of sheen’s from matt to full gloss. They can be colour matched to RAL, BS4800, BS381C as well as other customer specific shades. QAD paints are recommended for the protection and decoration of steel fabrications.

A range of Quick Air Drying Anti-corrosive primers suitable for use as a protective coating when applied onto steel substrates. Available in a narrow range of colours as standard, but bespoke colour matching is available if economically viable.

These paints have been specially formulated using minimal levels of solvent to reduce the impact of VOC emissions on the environment. Containing higher levels of solids to conventional coatings, the final film thicknesses achieved are higher providing greater protection whilst using less time and effort. Available in the full range of RAL, BS4800, BS381C as well as other customer specific shades.

Combining high solids properties with active anti corrosive pigments this range of coatings gives a cost effective alternative to using primer and topcoat as two separate applications. This can save you time and money in labour and paint costs whilst providing the final decorative finish you require.
