Customer Questions & Answers

is this an self etching primer (sealer).Can I prime with this and let stand for a few months and not have rust pop through before I applying top coat?

If not a sealer what would I have to use
Asked by: tuffy
This primer is designed mostly for aluminum. If you are painting steel Rustoleum metal primer is a better choice and should protect for several months.

Can this be used on rusty tailgate?

Asked by: Gloria
Great question, Gloria! Rust-Oleum Automotive Self Etching Primer Spray Paint is recommended for use on bare metal, aluminum, and fiberglass surfaces. For rusty surfaces, we recommend Rust-Oleum Automotive Rusty Metal Primer Spray Paint! This primer is great for rusted metal and helps promote adhesion of the top coat. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Automotive-12-oz-Light-Gray-Rusty-Metal-Primer-Spray-6-Pack-249331/204707131

Will this primer adhere to galvanized metal?

Will this primer adhere to galvanized metal?
Asked by: Mark92677
I had no trouble using this on galvanized steel. I recommend sanding the material first with 220 grit sandpaper, then wipe clean with a damp rag and let dry for a few minutes. The tiny grooves left by the sandpaper will increase the surface area for the primer to bond to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results for me! I am restoring a 1951 M38 jeep and have literally primed many dozens of small parts that had been cleaned down to bare metal. I made sure to properly clean every part prior to priming and applied the primer in temperatures ranging from 56 to 100 degrees F. The primer always adhered, dried quickly, and made a great base onto which were applied the finish coats. A auto paint shop did the final spray on the major body parts and I finished the smaller parts like brackets and lamp assemblies. Like the old lady who kissed a cow, we all have our own likes and dislikes and what is a feast for some is poison for others. To me, it is hard to beat this product and I had tried others- some costing more than twice as much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful I use this primer on everything from car parts to tools and especially at work. A must when painting zinc plated and galvanized metal, which regular spray primer falls off of. Also good for spot priming over silicone caulk. If you can use spray paint, and properly prep and topcoat your surface, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable finish I've been using this primer for coating bare metal prior to top coating and have excellent results. It adheres very well to the metal surfaces of my jeep rock rails and the top coat has yet to wear through or flake off after using the rails for climbing up into the cab.
