Asked by Liz October 11, 2020
1
Answer

Happy to help Liz! Prior to applying Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover Primer, remove any loose coating with a wire brush or sandpaper. If the polyurethane is peeling from the surface, it should all be removed prior to priming. When painting over a coating that continues to lift from the surface, whatever was applied over that clear will also lift. If the remaining polyurethane is a sound, well bonded surface, it can be scuff sanded and painted. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

If you don't want extremely visible brush strokes, you must sand!

Can I use the mineral spirits or acetone for prep the metal surface?

Asked by bet April 30, 2020
1
Answer

Good question. To prep the surface prior to applying Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover Paint you should remove all dirt, grease, oil, salt and chemical contaminants by washing the surface with a commercial detergent, or other suitable cleaning method. Rinse with fresh water and allow to thoroughly dry. Remove loose paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Previously coated surfaces must be sound and in good condition. Smooth, hard, or glossy finishes should be scarified by sanding to create a surface profile. As a water based coating we do not recommend prepping the surface with mineral spirits or acetone. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

I noticed that the Minwax products are leaving the shelves of Home Depot and are being replaced with Varathane and more Rustoleum products. Rustoleum products have always been quality and I had used the spray paints in the past, so I did not hesitate to make the purchase several weeks ago. It is a product that I had no doubt I would be pleased with. I had four outdoor rocking chairs and a table to sand, prime and paint. The primer went on flawlessly. Even though it may not have been required, I put on a second coat. The end result was even coverage. The chairs looked so good I could have used them as is!

If You Don't Want Visible Brush Strokes, You Must Fine Sand Multiple Times
I'm in the process of finishing unfinished speaker cabinets. I have filled and sanded where there are flaws in the wood and where there are indentations where there are small staples. The primer is being used to clearly identify where I may have not filled and sanded to a smooth finish. I did not expect this primer to leave such heavy brush strokes. After multiple coats of primer, to get a smooth finish, I'll have to spend hours fine sanding to get a smooth finish before spraying a finish coat. I've enameled hundreds of wood cabinets and wooden articles. This is my first and last use of Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover Primer. Had I known how dominant the brush marks would be, there is absolutely no way on this earth, I would have used this product.
