Q:I'm thinking about using this to repaint my rv, but it's mostly fiberglass, will it work?
by|Jun 27, 2024

Answer This Question

A:  Great question, Maximo! While Rust-Oleum Professional High-Performance Rusty Metal Primer is intended for rusty metal surfaces, this primer will adhere to fiberglass. If the surface has an existing coating on it already, we recommend Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer instead. This primer can be topcoated with an oil or water-based paint after 1 hour. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-Bulls-Eye-1-2-3-1-Gal-White-Water-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-2001/100398391 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Answer This Question

    A:  Happy to help, Steven! Rust-Oleum Professional High-Performance Rusty Metal Primer can be used provided the surface is not galvanized. The zinc used in galvanization will prevent oil-based primers from proper adhering. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      A:  Happy to clear things up, Bill! Rust-Oleum Professional Rusty Metal Primer is intended for use on rusted metal surfaces and will not adhere to any galvanized areas. If the surface is galvanized and/or has light rust, we recommend Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer instead. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-Bulls-Eye-1-2-3-1-Gal-White-Water-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-2001/100398391 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

          I just painted a 40" x 9'6' metal shipping container with a paint sprayer, covered a dark blue nicely and dried quickly. Planning on following up with using Rust-Oleum to create a camouflage pattern by mixing various colors. Getting ready to repaint an additional 20' container.

          This was amazing! The coats when on so well. We welded bare metal for deck railing. After everything was ground down, we followed the prep instruction on the back of the can... two coats and 2 days later, we painted the railing down. My wife has been so happy, I have not been yelled at for days now...

          Rust oleum has become my favorite paint for all my metal projects. Rust oleum is easy to apply. I use them on my utility trailers, burglar bars and anything that needs maintenance touch ups.

          This primer is thin no matter how much you stir shake or whatever method you use to mix paint,. I would highly recommend rolling it on with appropriate roller nap.
