I used this as a primer around my gas oven range where I was updating the finish around the control panel. Then I applied the rustoleum high heat semi gloss spray, and then rustoleum gloss enamel spray to finish it off. Looks great and so glad I used this primer first. I also use that same spray paint scenario when touching up our toilet bowl cleaners in the house. Excellent product!

Covered well, went on/sprayed easily & didn't spatter as some spray paints will do. The addition of the "spray at any angle" is nice & very convenient for spraying under & around your project. Attached is after the top coat of Rustoleum's "Stops Rust" semi gloss protective enamel". A nice finish resulted in the pairing.

Little expensive, but Rustoleum is sort of the name of the game in rust preventative coatings. My neighbor decided to unload his 1977 MAC toolbox on me in favor of a newer model with powerstrips and the like. It was rough. I had to take the entire thing down to bare metal. Dude at HD advised I start with this over automotive primer as the Self Etching chemistry of this product would eat into the metal slightly providing a better bond for top coatings. After a couple weeks in high Florida Humidity, everything is holding together better than expected. Word to the wise. Don't spray this in a garage, even with the door open. Take the whole project outside. Both this primer and Rustoleum's glossy topcoats both stink to high heaven.

    Didn't bite into Aluminum diamond plate
    1) Lightly scuffed up aluminum diamond plate tool box. 2) Used compressed air to blow off dust and debris. 3) Degreased and wiped down with brake cleaner. 4) Sprayed 2 even coats of this Etching primer. 5) Let sit inside for 24 hours. 6) Put on a coat of Rustoleum black gloss enamel. Cured for 24 hours. I can scratch it off with my fingernail. Get what you pay for I guess. Now I will have 2 hours additional into this job, sitting on a milk crate with a flap disc to remove it. Waste of $20 worth of rustoleum product.

    Response from Rust-OleumSupportJun 1, 2017
    Keep in mind that both our Self Etching Primer Spray Paint and Enamel paints have a full cure time of 7 days. They are dry to the touch and ready to handle after 24 hours, however, the full adhesion and hardness has not yet been achieved until the coating has cured completely. Rustoleum

      Great on my Firebird!
      I'm restoring an old Firebird and this primer has been my go-to. It fills in small imperfections very well and is very easy to apply without drips. It dries very quickly and can be sanded in under an hour after application.
