Can I use the rust inhibitor and then add the clear matte enamel on top of the inhibitor? I'm using it on a antique sign

I'm trying to stop the rust on an outdoor metal sign.

Absolutely not. This is basically just WD40 oil.

Living in SoFlo bikes etc rust easily. Can I put this on a bike or will it look like I coated it with polyurethane?
Asked by: Russell
Russell, Rust-Oleum Rust Inhibitor Spray Paint is ideal for application to bicycles. It is a clear coating and will appear as a clear finish on the surface.

Exactly how does this stuff work is a semi wet film?? Can I use it on the Slide Out of my RV (The Metal Toothed Rack that the gears on the Motor uses to open and Close the Slide!,)

Happy to clear things up! Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Clear Rust Inhibitor remains oily on the surface after application. When used indoors, the coating will need to be reapplied every 1-2 years and for outdoor uses every 6 months.

10.25 oz. Clear Rust Inhibitor Spray is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spent a lot of time cleaning some metal pipe parts and needed a clear coat to stop eventual rust.... Spent a lot of time cleaning some metal pipe parts and needed a clear coat to stop eventual rust. In paint section. Says "clear coating" on packaging. Really no indication of it basically being a LUBRICANT. Sprayed all the pieces. 20 mins - not dry. 2 hours - not dry. Google drying time and find out I just sprayed everything with what is basically WD40. Would be nice if the packaging explained HOW it was inhibiting rust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is *not* paint ... I can see where somebody might be upset if they thought this was an anti-rust paint, like the regular Rustoleum spray paints. It is not. It is a spray-on anti-rust coating that sticks well to metal and provides a lubricant-style coating. It works *very* well if you're aware of what it is and how it's intended to be used. But it does *not* dry, and would not work well if it did dry. I live in an oceanfront environment and it works well in fighting salt-air corrosion. But I would *not* use it indoors or on decorative items. Works best for tools, equipment, undercoating of utility vehicles, etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What he said... I too selected this product with the thought that it was clear coat paint...see the problem is it is stocked in the paint dept and should be next to WD40. I would recommend this over WD40 to coat tools. I used a motorcycle spray cleaner/degreaser S100 to remove instead of mineral spirits to prep for paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product-I knew it wasn't Spray Paint No where on the can does it state it's Spray Paint. When u go blindly into HD and ask for assistance, ur taking matters into ur own hands. Read what you buy. It's your own fault. This product does EXACTLY what it advertises. Works like a charm. AND IT DRIES TO THE TOUCH IN 2 HOURS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this isn't a coating! Second the other review here--I bought this in the paint section after asking for a UV resistant polyurethane to protect a metal gazebo from rust. This was recommended. Got home and started spraying this, and realized it's not drying. It's some kind of oil, and has nothing to do with a coating to prevent rust. Arrrrghhh! Now I have to return it, wipe it off and paint over it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Dries This stuff never dries. In fact I think it's just WD40. It smells and feels just like it. I can't imagine putting it on something that you would either touch or have inside your home. It made a mess of the metal shower caddy I want to put in my shower. I had to wipe it all off. Can instructions are vague and incomplete. I have no idea why it's kept in the paint section because it misleads you into thinking it's some kind of coating. It's just an oily spray.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rust Inhibitor may not be ready for prime time but I clearly understand the low reviews, but for my needs it was recommended to use a rust inhibitor from Earthway Broadcast Spreaders, instead of rinsing off metal, and rusting, I use a damp clean cloth and will store in garage and spray as a winterizer. There are competitors online like WD Corrosion inhibitor, VHT, CRS.or LPS at ACE. But in fairness to Home Depot, thumbs up they stock this product in store. Lowes or Walmart do not have this product in store, only a rust stain remover or dis solver. But at a cost of $7 to $17 for 11 oz aerosol application vs $3.76. I'll take this product from a cost prospective from my research they are not meant to dry to touch, I think for my application this will work for me but clearly understand some of the unfavorable reviews.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Despite the title, this is NOT paint! Misleading. Like others, I thought this would provide a transparent, water-resistant coating. it's not!! This does not dry! I can see the applications for it, but it should not be in the paint section. Nor should HD market it as such! It applies an oily covering similar to WD40. Smells like it too. Ugh!!
