- When using Paintman Coach Enamel ensure surfaces are clean and dry to remove all contaminants. We suggest using our Surface cleaner 2800 for painted surfaces or our Surface Cleaner 2802 for bare metal, these will remove oil and other contamination off the surface to be painted. Before painting, wipe surfaces with a Tack Rag to remove dust and other loose contaminants.

Primer versus Undercoat – What is the difference?
From a laymans point of view Coach Enamel Primer generally contains a rust inhibiting element, it fills pores in the bare metal and protects bare ferrous metal surfaces. It is manufactured from (in paint terms) a fairly coarse material and cannot be prepared to the same standard as undercoat. Undercoat however is manufactured from smooth fine material which gives a smooth finish. It also has excellent high building qualities. It does not however protect bare metal and therefore should only be used if there are no bare metal areas present on the surface to be painted. If the surface is going to be used in a damp environment (such as on boats) then the surface should be prepared, primed and undercoated before applying the top coat to obtain the best possible result from the Coach Enamel.
