If the paint has not cured after all this time, it will need to be removed prior to recoating the surface. Please give us a call at (800) 481-4785, so we can gather more details about this and try to make things right with you. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Do I have to use a primer on a metal fence that has some rust on it ?

Asked by Ted April 18, 2021
1
Answer

Great question, Ted! Rust-Oleum Professional High Performance Protective Enamel can be applied directly to non-galvanized metal. For best protection and rust inhibiting, apply Rust-Oleum Professional High Performance Rusty Metal Primer before applying the enamel. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Professional-1-gal-High-Performance-Flat-Rusty-Metal-Oil-Based-Rust-Preventive-Primer-2-Pack-7769402/202058804?mtc=SEM-B-F_D24-G-D24-24_3_SPRAY_PAINT-NA-NA-NA-DSA-NA-NA-FY21_SprayPaint_NB_DSA&cm_mmc=SEM-B-F_D24-G-D24-24_3_SPRAY_PAINT-NA-NA-NA-DSA-NA-NA-FY21_SprayPaint_NB_DSA-71700000081717310-58700006942061318-39700062507127877&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIk6zaw7-K8AIVUW1vBB3_cwKlEAAYAiAAEgKUx_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4

Asked by Paintball April 3, 2021
1
Answer

Happy to clear things! A primer is not required if applying Rust-Oleum Professional High-Performance Enamel Paint to clean metal unless it is galvanized. If the surface is galvanized, a water-based primer will need to be used since the zinc on the surface will prevent an oil-based paint from fully adhering. However, a primer can be used if desired and can also be used to help with coverage if painting over a contrasting color. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

This was recommended by a Home depot employee to paint part of my driveway for my daughter to practice basketball. The paint looks great except it is VERY SLIPPERY WHEN WET, which is the only reason I would not recommend for said application Not the paint's fault ..just poor recommendation.

Response from Rust-OleumSupportSep 10, 2020
Oh no! Rust-Oleum Professional High Performance Protective Enamel Paint should not be used to paint a driveway. Professional is not designed to support foot or vehicle traffic, as you stated, it will also be very slippery when wet.
