The Rust-Oleum Stops Rust 32oz Rusty Metal Primer helps stops rust and prevent corrosion when applied to heavily rusted metal. This primer features a unique fish-oil based formula that penetrates rust to bare metal, and bonds tightly to rust to form a surface to which most top coats can adhere. Clean-up is easy with mineral spirits.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value You can see the rust stains on the concrete from before. This primer is brown in color. All that's left to do is a top coat on the primer and re-stain the concrete. You must do clean up with mineral spirits or paint thinner. May 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good stuff! I have used this product for decades and have never had a problem with adhesion or rust breaking through or durability. I've used it with and without a top coat with no issues either way. If you don't cover it with a top coat the only thing you'll notice is that after many years the color will lighten up quite a bit. But that's it! June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great I've used this primer on rusty metals for a number of years, and it works extremely well. I had an old bush hog that was very rusty, so I cleaned off the loose rust, used the rusty metal primer, and then covered it with John Deere green. Two years later, it still looks like new. I have never found any paint that works on rusty metal that even comes close to rustoleum. October 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bought paint to cover rusty automotive interior. Painted with ease, metal looks a lot better. Prepped rusty metal then coated with this primer October 15, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well - Fast Being a beginner, It got a little messy when i didn't realize it has to be cleaned with mineral spirits and not water. Works great, easier than paint to apply. June 5, 2013
