C.I.P. (Corrosive Inhibiting Primer)

In detail

C.I.P. (Corrosive Inhibiting Primer) is a rust inhibiting primer which is suitable for finishing with both single and 2-pack paints and finishes. It contains the anti-corrosive properties of Owatrol Oil  which enables it to stabilise the surface by penetrating deep into the substrate, driving out excess moisture and air to form a solid stable layer.

C.I.P. (Corrosive Inhibiting Primer) is easy to use and does not require sand or shot blasting first. It can be used on both new and rusted surfaces – both interior and exterior and is fine for use on horizontal and vertical surfaces. It will not dissolve or break down when even high solvent paints and finishes (urethane, epoxy, chlorinated rubber, synthetic, etc.) are applied to it and the pigmentation provides enhanced protection and perfect film-forming qualities. With Owatrol’s CIP, sand or shot-blasted surfaces do not require immediate priming as a light rust coating will not affect its performance or the final result.

Ideal uses for C.I.P. (Corrosive Inhibiting Primer)

  • Outstanding for high performance in severe conditions such as marine or tropical environments
  • Resisting corrosive fumes
  • Protecting motor vehicles
  • Avoiding rusting on construction equipment
  • Protecting ballast tanks of ships
  • Inhibiting rust development on every day items such as railings and gates

Additional information

Surface Preparation

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease and other surface contaminants. Remove all mill scale; loose and flaking rust and old paint back to a sound surface and edge. Feather in any sharp edges. Surfaces exposed to chemicals should be washed using copious amounts of water or steam cleaned. Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent.


  • Stir well before and during use.
  • Do not thin.

Clean Up

Clean all tools and equipment with mineral spirits while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper.
