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.

Good value
You can see the rust stains on the concrete from before. This primer is brown in color. All that's left to do is a top coat on the primer and re-stain the concrete. You must do clean up with mineral spirits or paint thinner.

Response from Rust-OleumSupportAug 31, 2021
Let's see what we can figure out. For best results when using Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer, scrape and wire brush or power tool clean to remove loose rust, scale and deteriorated previous coatings. After priming, the primer must be top coated to ensure proper rust protection.
