Q:My gas fireplace chimney has a metal topper. Can I use this paint on that topper? It is currently rusty. Should I sand the rust down to the original surface of just sand off the lose rust? I live in the FL high heat. Thank you.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Karen, thank you for your question. Our Direct To Metal Paint should be applied to sound and clean surfaces. It is recommended to remove rust, and sand the surface with sandpaper, steel wool, or with a chemical etcher. For best results, we also recommend using a rust-inhibitive primer like our Multi-Surface Primer and Sealer No. 436. The metal topper should also not get too hot, as the coating will not hold up. Please reach out to us directly if you have any other questions.Have a great day! -Giovanna

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi there, thanks for the question. Our Direct to Metal Paint is self-priming over properly prepared metal. For optimal corrosion protection on ferrous metal surfaces, I'd recommend priming first with our Metal Primer #435. Have a great day! -Ronald

        A:  Hi Julian, thank you for your question. Back rolling is recommended for an even paint film when applying the Semi-Gloss Direct-To-Metal Paint using an airless sprayer. Have a great day! - Randy

          Direct to Metal Paint
          I used this paint on my garage door. I sanded the garage door and was prepped for paint. After one coat it seemed like the paint did not fully adhere. Once I put the second coat the paint did adhere to the surface pretty well. The finish looked great. I used a Greco magnum airless sprayer.

            I've been a professional painter and have had my own business for over 20 years. This is the BEST product I've ever used on metal handrails and fire escapes and covers awesome. I highly recommend this product for these types of applications.

            Rough surface
            I bought this item for my shed. My Galvanized Door Stripped, cleaned and primed with No.435 and 3/8"premium nap and as recommended, read the instruction and recommendation very well; now the paint is too rough to a touch and disappointed. The paint has good quality adhesion but surface is not as I expected and read. Now I am searching a solution how to get rid of the this rough surface you see on the picture I posted. before judgement I want to hear from behr suggestion or correction I could make.

              Purchased this product for the first time, it was easy to clean and had a vibrant color once completely dried. I'll buy it again.

              Amazing coverage with our spray gun.
              We just painted our outdoor furniture; 12 chairs, two tables and two lounge chairs with the black semi-gloss direct to metal paint by Behr. It only took 1 and 1/4 gallons with our paint sprayer. Dry time was super fast. We didn’t have to dilute with water and the coverage and transformation is amazing. Garage and exterior doors next. Great quality product. Highly recommend.

                Paint totally failed during application.
                This paint totally failed. As a professional painter, I sprayed metal roofing panels laying flat during the heat of the day, allowing them to setup before dusk set in nearly three hours later. 15 panels in all. All but three of the panels were set and completely dry to the touch as dusk fell. 77* heat in direct sunlight when sprayed. 65* a half-hour before dusk. The last three panels never dried. By morning, each and every panel had re-hydrated and the paint had ran like it had been sprayed down with a hose. Some of the metal was completely exposed again, and other places had ran, wrinkled, puddled, and bubbled. It was unreal. I was stunned. Complete failure. As a professional painting contractor, I'd never used Behr products before. The paint simply failed to emulsify. I let the panels lay for several days before installing them on the roof, and at that point had no choice but to paint a second coat after installation on the steep-pitched roof itself, after MANY hours of cleaning and prepping the panels for a second coat. I only had a three-hour window that I felt I could safely apply that last coat each day, and a simple one-day installation turned into more than a week as a result. My panels are ruined. I have no idea how well this paint will fare over the months and years ahead. The paint looks like it was applied by a total amateur. This is on an investment project that I own myself. I plan to replace the panels in the spring once the weather clears again due to the lousy finish I've ended up with as a result of this product's failure.

                Hi Pro Painter, thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the issues you had with our Direct to Metal Semi-Gloss Paint. This paint is not deisnged for a roof surface, so I recommend covering it with a roof paint for the most durable finish. Customer satisfaction is very important to us, so feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. They are always happy to help. Enjoy the rest of your day. -Christina Behr

                DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE!
                Second time using this garbage. Color is not even close to what i asked for, when applied in optimal conditions, you cant apply this crap thin enough to stop it from running. Pic on the left is ONE coat of rusteloem, on the right is after the THIRD coat of this behr garbage, suposed to be safety orange.

                Hi Otis, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not get the coverage you expected. Typically, our Direct to Metal Paint will cover in two coats, while darker colors and porous surfaces may require additional coats. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald Behr
