Customer Questions & Answers

I need to end up with a high gloss white finish on rough iron. What high gloss paint is recommended?

Asked by: Art
Greetings Art, You did not mention if it's for interior or exterior. However, since you posted the question under this product, I assume it's for the exterior. I suggest looking under the Rust-Oleum brands using an applicator such as brush on, and their spray products. I can tell you their brush on high gloss white is definitely HIGH GLOSS. Be aware you must apply in light coats, otherwise you will be chasing runs in your finish. I hope this helps.

Hi, can I use a latex paint over this primer?

Hi, can I use a latex paint over this primer?
Asked by: Bob
Yes, Bob. Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer is compatible with most coatings, but a test patch is suggested. We also suggest allowing 3-5 days of drying before top coating with a latex topcoat.

I have 3 metal structural columns in my basement with some rust on them but not completely rusty, should I use Rusty Metal Primer before painting??

These columns are 20 years old and never have been painted. It does look like they may have had some red colored primer on them from the factory, but they are dirty and they do have spots of rust on them but not really heavy rust. Obviously, they are indoors and hold up the steel I-beam that supports the house.
Asked by: Frank
Rust-Oleum Rusty Metal Primer is designed to be applied to heavily rusted metal. For clean or lightly rusted metal use Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer. Apply Clean Metal Primer directly over bare, lightly rusted or previously painted metal to ensure the best possible durability and corrosion protection. For maximum protection, top coat with any Rust-Oleum® Stops Rust coating. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Stops-Rust-1-qt-Flat-White-Clean-Metal-Primer-7780502/100126115

1 qt. Flat Rusty Metal Primer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
