    Default Re: Why can’t I find ‘zinc chromate’ primer?

    I used zinc chromate on my saildrive housing. Very hard to apply, it needs to be warm and when I brought it in the house it stank really bad ( the paint not the bare housing ). Compared to special metals primer zinc chromate is poor. I have always found that Special Metals Primer stick like s**t to a blanket - so as usual Viv is right.

    Just had a look at a can of Autotek etch primer I have on the shelf, says it contains isodecyloxypropylamine acetate.

    Is that carcinogenic? It bloody well ought to be with a long name like that. Sounds like a solvent ...

    You could write to Autotek and ask, I believe that they have an office in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch.

    Depends which valence of Cr it is. Cr+6 = nasty, Cr+3 not so bad.

    Try Silmid.com. I bought an Alodine treatment from them some years ago, now rebranded Bonderite. I got the part no from the Awlgrip tech manual.

    Perhaps something is put in it to make it stink since it has a potential to be harmful ?
