Ok Paul
Never tried the brush on stuff, but can`t complain about the spray stuff.
Over the years I have tried all sorts of stuff.
When I was building trailers with the hot dip galve bodies we used some very good stuff, but can`t remember it`s name now and now Bradley`s have closed I can`t ring up and ask where it came from.

I've used Galvafroid quite a lot in the past and found it to be easy to apply and hard wearing.

It's brushable and must be high in zinc content 'cos you can hardly lift the can! :lol:
