Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not mix ! I bought this primer because it was recommended to be used with the Majic tractor paint, but was very disappointed when I tried to mix the primer, it was so thick in the bottom of the can that I broke a wooden stiring stick trying to mix it, Then I got a rotary stirring rod that works in a drill and after 15 minutes of working with the drill and stirrer it still was not mixed properly. I did use a small amount even though it was not completely mixed since I had already sanded some areas to bare metal - primer covered well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, tough durable system ! I used Majic red oxide primer on a dump bed. I called Majic multiple times and they were great ! Walked me through it step by step. I sanded metal and did a phosphoric acid wash and let set overnight . Rinse let dry and used a Wagner type sprayer, sprayed primer. Let primer dry overnight then light sanded, blow off dust with air then sprayed Majic tractor & implement paint. 2 light coats then 3rd coat with hardener. Been 2 years now and still looks great ! Highly recommended >Great customer service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Where was this can at? This gallon must have been sitting for a long,long time. All the pigment was like thick, heavy mud sitting on the bottom. It had to take me an hour to stir and break up the sediment on the bottom

Is this a lacquer based so I can use lacquer thinner for thinning and clean up?

Asked by: rbdief
Majic T&I Red Oxide Primer is "oil based" - not lacquer based.

could I use the majic hardener with the primer?

Asked by: SpaceCritter
From a compositional perspective, there would be nothing harmful about mixing Majic Catalyst Hardener with 8-2989 Red Oxide Primer, but you'd also experience very little advantage by doing so

Do I need to sand between each coat ? What about if I use the primer, will it need to be sanded also ?

Asked by: Ray R 1
Because these are oil/alkyd products, it is always good practice to sand between coats with a very fine grit paper (recommended 350 grit), or fine Scotch Brite pad. Light sanding not only removes surface irregularities (such as dust that may have settled on the surface during drying), but also aids in inter-coat adhesion, and helps to maintain a uniform & consistent finish application.

Hi If I'm going to use a brush to apply the primer - do I need to thin the primer or put it on just like it is in the can - once mixed properly ???

Asked by: Ray R 1
To apply Majic T&I Red Oxide Primer by brush, first mix the contents of the gallon, thoroughly, until the product is a smooth and uniform consistency. Then, for best results, I would recommend thinning Majic T&I Red Oxide Primer with Majic Reducer, #8-0750, at a ratio of approximately 10%, apply in thin coats and allow 24 hours to dry before applying additional coats of primer, or top-coating with a finish enamel. The purpose for reduction is to help manage/control the recommended application thickness, and to aid in the “flow & leveling” of the applied film (too heavy an application, and/or re-coating too soon may result in a film that won’t dry “hard” for several days or longer).

Can this product be painted directly on rusted surfaces as a primer?

Asked by: Cantonbishop
Our best recommendation is to remove as much rust as possible through sanding, wire-brushing, grinding, blasting etc. – if rust cannot be removed by such mechanical means, then the second best option may be to convert the active rust to a more stable surface - commercial rust converters turn rust, or iron oxide, to a more paintable surface such as iron tannate, or iron phosphate, which can then be primed, and painted, as clean steel. Majic Tractor & Implement Primers are high solids, heavily pigmented, and contain as much corrosion resistance components as is legal – but necessary to apply directly to rust – and to control the spread of rust - the product must be thin enough to penetrate deeply through-out the pits & contours created by rust, then fully encapsulate active rust as a barrier to reaction with oxygen.
