Q:can you top coat this primer with acrylic urethane?
by|Nov 14, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Happy to help, Mike! In ideal conditions, Rust-Oleum Automotive Primer Surfacer can be topcoated after 60–90 minutes. This can be topcoated with most automotive paints, but a test application is recommended if mixing brands/manufactures. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    A:  Great question, Fitz! Yes, Rust-Oleum Automotive Primer Surfacer can be applied to previously coated surfaces. Make sure any loose paint is removed and that the surface is scuff sanded. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      A:  Happy to clear things up! Rust-Oleum Auto Body Primer is ready to use and typically does not require any reducing, but can be thinned with acetone if desired. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

        Q:Do I need a reducer on first coat if I am brushing or rolling it on?
        by|Jan 6, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Happy to help, Brent! Rust-Oleum Automotive Primer Surfacer must be reduced when applying with a paint sprayer. Brush application of Rust-Oleum Primer Surfacer without reducer is recommended for touch-up application only. We do not recommend applying full coats with a brush or with an unreduced primer. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

          This primer is great. It has a high build and sands easily. I use it a lot on auto body panels and parts. My last order....I opened the box at the store to check the 2 gallons and both gallons were crushed badly all over the top but did not puncture. There was one small area that looked like a little primer came out but hardly any. The shippers allowed this to happen. If I wanted to wait another 2 weeks I would have sent them back. I painted the jeep (in photo) using Rustoleum Primer surfacer under the oil-based paint.

          The Primer lays down good but you got to watch the over spray using HVLP, works a little better on HP/HTE guns, It sands good, The high build isn't as good as pro stuff but it works. Flash time is about 20mins, if using Japan drier its 8-10mins. Works good with Smoke Grey and black paints. Over all its good I would buy it again. THe shipping wasn't good though the cans came damaged and the lids were leaking, the carrier must have dropped the package.

          First time
          This is my first attempt at auto body work. Very satisfied with this primer. It's thick enough to build up and sands nicely
