Thank you for reaching out! Keep in mind that these coatings will not reach full hardness and adhesion for 7-10 days, so further curing time may be needed prior to testing for scratch resistance. Our Rust-Oleum Professional Aluminum Primer is compatible with our Stops Rust Protective Enamel Sprays. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
Happy to help! For the best results, you will want to ensure that the epoxy product is paintable. We also recommend sanding it prior to applying Rust-Oleum Professional Aluminum Primer Spray. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
Thank you for reaching out, Eric! Rust-Oleum Professional Aluminum Primer Spray contains acrylic polymer resins. Since this is an aerosol product, it does contain solvents. We recommend applying in a test area first to ensure favorable results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
In response to Rustoleum support team: Thank you for the clarification and link to a specific product I can use. However, in the Details in Specifications (see attached image), it says surface use type galvanized metal. So when you say I shouldn't use this product (for the galvanized steel mailbox) is it because the base material is oil based and the one you suggested Zinsser (Model # 2004) is water based? Thanks.
Good question, Steve. The Rust-Oleum Professional Aluminum Primer Spray will perform best over aluminum surfaces, but will be able to adhere to stainless steel as well. We would recommend using the Rust-Oleum Automotive Self Etching Primer instead for the best results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5
I would be set it as the second primer as it makes a very nice flat surface and covers very uniformly for the final coat. But as always. Test an area first as you never know how it will react in your situation. Good luck.

Great question, Joe! Rust-Oleum Professional High-Performance Aluminum Primer Spray is suitable for use on metal surfaces, including zinc-plated metal! To ensure full adhesion, we recommend lightly sanding the surface to create a surface profile. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
Glad to help out, Mike. Rust-Oleum Professional Aluminum Primer can be applied as long as any loose or peeling paint is sanded away and the surface is cleaned with soap and water. Keep in mind that prolonged exposure to water and high moisture levels can cause the paint to wear more quickly. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5
To Rust Oleum support - that was a worthless boilerplate answer. Thanks for nothing.
