I used the Rust-Oleum primer for my Aluminum boat tank. I put 2 coats of primer and finished off with 3 coats of Rust-Oleum Gray oil based paint. Work and looks perfect. Tank is ready for another 30 yrs of service.

I put this on my galvanized metal exterior roof and it flaked right off in hours! I was going to paint the next day but had to wait 2 days and the rest of it fell off after a rain. Don't waste your money or time. Now I have to scrape the rest of it off even though most of it comes off with a rag and spend more time time and money to do it all over again with a product that actually works. NOT HAPPY

Let's get to the bottom of this! Prior to applying Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Aluminum Primer, it is important that the surface is thoroughly washed with a commercial detergent or another suitable cleaning method so that there is nothing on the surface that can interfere with adhesion. It is also important that the surface is dry at the time of application. Excessive brushing needs to be avoided as well since this reducing the film thickness and protection. Please keep in mind that this coating fully cures after 7-10 days but can be top coated after 24 hours. Rustoleum

    Something is amiss here! Our Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Aluminum Primer provides excellent adhesion to properly prepared aluminum and galvanized metal surfaces. While this primer may be topcoated after it has dried for 24 hours, it will not reach its full adhesion and hardness for 7 days. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

    I only gave it a one star because there is no option for a negative star rating. Home depot had this LATEX gray primer right next to the OIL base Grey primer (without my glasses) I grabbed this Latex primer by mistake . I had to buy a 2nd quart to cover the same material that would normally be covered in only one coat of Oil based primer so it cost me twice as much to use Latex. I primed a new sheet metal floor pan a few days ago and I already have rust coming through the rustolum latex primer :( this doesn't happen when I use the oil based primer. Because of the latex primer poor quality and ineffective sealing I now will have to sand blast the floor pan and re prime it so the latex made several days of extra work and additional expenses due to the Rustoulum latex primer. I would NOT recommend this rustoulm Latex based primer to anyone (except my x-wife)

    That is not what we like to hear, Robert! Our Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Aluminum Primer is designed for use over aluminum or galvanized metal, since oil-based coatings will react with the zinc present on galvanized surfaces. Once the primer has dried for a minimum of 24 hours, it may be top coated using either a water or oil-based enamel. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

    Brushed on evenly and cleaned up easily. Time will tell if it peels off the mixed galvanized/rusted metal it was applied to, but seems great for now.
