Q:Can I use this product on my Cast Iron Tub? Then go over it with the Tub and Tile Refinisher Kit?
by|Dec 2, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We appreciate your interest, Barbara! While Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer is great for bare metal surfaces, we do not recommend it for use inside a tub. The constant exposure to moisture and high humidity will cause the primer, and any topcoat, to start to blister and peel. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Q:Hi, I have forced hot water baseboard heating and wanted to white pain the heating covers. They are grey colored and are not rusted. Would rust-oleum clean metal primer white is enough or do I need to apply another paint top of the above primer? Thanks,

    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for reaching out. While Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer can be applied directly to metal surfaces, we do not recommend applying to surfaces that may exceed 200° F. This can cause the paint to blister and peel over time. We do not currently offer a product for this application. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

      A:  We have hot water baseboard heat also. Your baseboards don’t get too hot for this paint. I used this paint and painted almost all of our hw baseboards several years ago in a 2800 square foot house. I just didn’t paint the actual hot water pipe supply line

        A:  We're happy to help, Chris. Yes, Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer can be applied directly to brass surfaces. We would then recommend top coating using Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover Oil Rubbed Bronze General Purpose Paint. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Painter-s-Touch-32-oz-Ultra-Cover-Metallic-Oil-Rubbed-Bronze-General-Purpose-254101/202097791 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

            Covered almost completely black paint in just two coats!
            Covered almost completely black/blue paint in just two coats! Are used a roller brush and I cannot believe how absolutely perfect the door came out! I’m going to post before and after pics. Just ignore the sloppy paint on the door knob since I’m replacing that tomorrow with a whole different set. By the way, beware! They should go without saying but dummy me forgot to put on gloves and now my hands are covered in permanent oil based primer. It’s going to be a couple of weeks unless I get turpentine or something. Also, 1 quart of this paint really does cover 100 ft.². Be so careful not to get carried away because it will easily drop. Final thoughts: super awesome product! Turned black blue dark pink into a very soft French gray after two coats with ultra white Rustoleum. I was going to put a coat of light grey paint, but now I don’t need to because it actually looks THAT perfect. Pictures don’t do it justice. I will finish off the door with a semi gloss super white trim later.

              This paint worked pretty well on a slightly rusty patio door screen. I will need to do another coat however. Perhaps I chose the wrong paint brush for the project. I added new screening and it's almost like brand new!

              This is a great primer!
              I used this as a primer to clean up some old metal cabinets. It will help address the rust and created a great surface to then paint over. It is a little thin so be careful not to overload the brush as drips are likely to happen. You get good coverage. I am very happy with the results.

              Too soon to tell. After only 2 weeks, it BETTER still be stuck to the metal. It did brush on well.

              I wanted to paint our steel front door, and this little can made it so easy! I only used about a third of it in priming the external side. It went on smoothly, dried quickly, and made for an easy painting session the next day! The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was how hard it was to clean off the roller afterward. I probably should have known it wouldn't be as easy as rinsing it with soap and water. Good thing roller brushes aren't expensive!
