Does Metal need a primer before painting?
Metal that is exposed to the elements requires a primer before it can be painted. In the home, metals that are commonly found include wrought iron, galvanized steel, and aluminium.
How many coats of primer should I use on the metal?
Two coats of primer should be plenty. Let the primer dry thoroughly based on the manufacturer's suggestion before painting. Paint is applied in a similar manner, and up to 3 coats can be used.
