CIP (Corrosive Inhibiting Primer) is a rust inhibiting primer. Suitable for finishing with both single and 2-pack paints and finishes. It contains the anti-corrosive properties of Owatrol Oil which enable it to stabilise the surface. It does this by penetrating deep into the substrate, driving out excess moisture and air to form a solid stable layer.
CIP is easy to use and does not require sand or shot blasting first. It can be used on 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. Making it perfect to use as a primer for 2-pack paints. The brick red pigmentation also provides enhanced protection and 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.
CIP’s enhanced corrosion protection and strong surface make it perfect for use in extreme climatic conditions such as in the marine environment and in tropical areas and it has excellent chemical resistance too. Its excellent adhesion means that it also performs exceptionally well on clean, bright steel – typically a difficult surface to coat.
Ideal uses for CIP rust 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 everyday items such as railings and gates
- Perfect protection where a high resistant paint or two-pack finish is necessary
- Priming steel superstructures
- Outstanding adherance on clean bright steel
Surfaces must first 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 and feather in any sharp edges. Any surfaces exposed to chemicals (acids, alkalis or salt deposits) should be washed using copious amounts of water or steam cleaned. Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent.

Application of CIP Corrosive Inhibiting Primer
Stir well before and during use.
Do not thin.
Applying CIP to new surfaces
Prime with 1 coat of Owatrol CIP and allow to dry. For surfaces subject to aggressive climatic conditions apply 2 priming coats.
Applying CIP to clean, lightly rusted or new unpainted rusty steel
Apply 2 coats of Owatrol CIP allowing drying time between coats.
Applying CIP to old or severely rusted surfaces
Either apply 3 coats of Owatrol CIP allowing drying time between coats or apply wet on wet applications of Owatrol Oil until the rust is fully saturated and allow to dry for 24 hours and then apply 2 coats of Owatrol CIP allowing drying time between coats.
Applying CIP to previously coated surfaces
First spot prime all exposed metal with 2 coats of Owatrol CIP allowing drying time between coats and then apply a 3rd coat over the entire area and allow it to dry.
Clean all tools and equipment with white spirit while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper.
NOTE: Any rags, steel wool etc. soaked in CIP may spontaneously catch ﬁre if
improperly discarded. Rags, steel wool etc. must be saturated with water after use or placed in a sealed, water ﬁlled metal container, before disposing with household waste.
Things to Remember
- Cover everything you do not wish to paint.
- Apply between 5˚C and 35˚C.
- Do not apply in direct sunlight or on to hot surfaces.

Primes bare metal and rusted areas really well. Used to protect against corrosion of roof rail channels where water gathers on my narrowboat. Recommended to a boating colleague too.

Worked perfectly for the badly rusted and pitted deck in my bow lockers, highly recommended
