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.

12 oz. Self Etching Primer Spray Paint is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't bite into Aluminum diamond plate 1) Lightly scuffed up aluminum diamond plate tool box. 2) Used compressed air to blow off dust and debris. 3) Degreased and wiped down with brake cleaner. 4) Sprayed 2 even coats of this Etching primer. 5) Let sit inside for 24 hours. 6) Put on a coat of Rustoleum black gloss enamel. Cured for 24 hours. I can scratch it off with my fingernail. Get what you pay for I guess. Now I will have 2 hours additional into this job, sitting on a milk crate with a flap disc to remove it. Waste of $20 worth of rustoleum product.
