Q:Can this be used on aluminum
by|Nov 3, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Happy to help! Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer is intended for use on rusted metal surfaces, as the primer will best adhere to rust. If the surface is clean metal and galvanized, we recommend the use of a water-based primer, such as 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

        Answer This Question

        A:  Happy to help. The Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer can be used on those panels where there is rust and old paint, but the surface would need to be sanded or wire brushed smooth and cleaned well with soap and water to ensure the best results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

            Although it seemed to work perfectly, what I didn’t realize is that the color would be brown. I not used to a primer being brown as I always thought it would white. So hopefully, when I paint the door the white that it was intended to be I hope I don’t have to paint twice to cover the brown primer.

            The primer is for metal surfaces and its oil based. After grinding the area to remove the rust and leave just metal exposed I washed the area with soap and water as instructed by the instructions on this can. Once that was done I dried the surface and used 3qts of this primer for about 100 square ft then for top coat I used rust oleum gloss black anti rust preventer # 242253 these two should be enough to protect ur home metal fence and home metal projects.

            Was used in a bathroom renovation to prime a rusty section of drywall metal corner bead near a tub/shower enclosure. The area had been subject to years of moisture that had eaten away a good deal of the bead. I had a choice to either replace the entire corner (a big job) or clean-up the rusty corner, prime it with the Rust-oleum, then move-on to patching and priming the drywall that had been removed. There's no way to know with certainty that my approach will work. However, my history with Rust-oleum products makes me feel confident the repair will be fine for years to come. I would have given this 5 stars had it been available in a smaller size. There was a time many Rust-oleum products were available in 1/2 pints. Unfortunately this one was not.

            Just used it with 2 coats of Rust-Oleum Gloss Black on a set wrought iron railings going up the front steps. Sanded all of the wrought iron with a wire wheel brush attached to a drill before application. Will be able to provide an overall rating after a 4 season challenge. Both products went on smoothly. Time will tell

            I used this primer by Rust-oleum to paint a large 11 foot tall metal Saguaro cactus. This color gives it the look of a rusty old southwest object that has become very popular in the southwestern United States.
