How would this, or can this, be tinted to a darker color (nearer dark brown)?

How would this, or can this, be tinted to a darker color (nearer dark brown)?
Asked by: BcpSTX
We do not recommend adding any tint to Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Aluminum Rust Preventive Primer since this is already colored and not a tint base. Adding colorant can affect the product's performance and dry time.

Can I use this latex paint under rustoleum painters touch 2x ultra cover paint and primer spray paint?

Asked by: CJ
You can use Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Latex Aluminum Primer underneath Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover 2x Spray Paint. You'll want to allow the primer to dry 24 hours before you apply your top coat!

Is this a self etching primer? Can it be sprayed using an HVLP sprayer? Does it need to be thinned in order to spray?

Asked by: Ale
Our 1 qt. Aluminum Flat Rust Preventive Primer is a water-based, latex primer, and is not self-etching. It is possible to spray this product, and it can be thinned up to 2 oz per quart with fresh water. We do offer a self-etching primer spray that can be found here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Automotive-12-oz-Self-Etching-Primer-Spray-Paint-249322/202097278

Rust oleum was developed for use on boats so what do you make for outdrives to use as a primer ???

Asked by: Justin
We appreciate your interest, Justin! Due to the constant immersion in water, we cannot recommend Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Aluminum Primer or any of our primers for use on outdrives.

1 qt. Aluminum Flat Rust Preventive Primer is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had high hopes for this product. I know that painting aluminum can be a challenge, so I cleaned... I had high hopes for this product. I know that painting aluminum can be a challenge, so I cleaned the aluminum surface (which were stair treads), chose a primer from a well-respected company (Rust-Oleum), even lightly sanded the surface to provide better adhesion. Then I spent many, many hours applying this product, waited a few days and applied a surface paint (also Rust-Oleum). Everything seemed fine for a couple months, then slowly started to flake off. This was not a problem with the paint, since the flaking was down to bare metal (see photo). And this is not a problem with the traffic on the treads, since it is flaking off in areas that do not receive any traffic. Very disappointing. I thought that I chose a good product and took a lot of time and extra steps to make sure that this was done right. Don’t make the same mistake that I did. Avoid this primer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not useful for aluminum I cleaned and prepped the surface and applied as per the directions. However when removing the tape from around the area that I primed, it came off with the tape. Also, I was able to peel it off by hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Lays great. With a hardner and heater, in bad weather, still a good product.
