Doesn't really dry. it is not a paint, it isnt what you think. it is basically an oil prevention.

Can I use the rust inhibitor and then add the clear matte enamel on top of the inhibitor? I'm using it on a antique sign

I'm trying to stop the rust on an outdoor metal sign.

Absolutely not. This is basically just WD40 oil.

can this be sprayed on rebar? we would like to see what product can we use to spray on rebar to protect rust activities in concrete cement when applied and cured. meaning we have problems where rebar rust and swells up over time and creates faulty issues in side walks, foundations, etc. where it cracks the hollow block wall or foundation floor. i was looking for something that can prevent that. thank you very much.

10.25 oz. Rust Inhibitor Clear Spray is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hello... this is not paint and the label does not say it is paint. A lot of low reviews because p... Hello... this is not paint and the label does not say it is paint. A lot of low reviews because people think it is paint, some reviews even say the label is deceptive. However, the label does not say paint. People shouldn't trash a product when they bought the wrong thing. This is a spray anti-corrosion product, a sort of spray oil; it has nothing to do with paint at all and people are giving it a bad review because they thought it was paint. The product works as is it is supposed to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rust Inhibitor may not be ready for prime time but I clearly understand the low reviews, but for my needs it was recommended to use a rust inhibitor from Earthway Broadcast Spreaders, instead of rinsing off metal, and rusting, I use a damp clean cloth and will store in garage and spray as a winterizer. There are competitors online like WD Corrosion inhibitor, VHT, CRS.or LPS at ACE. But in fairness to Home Depot, thumbs up they stock this product in store. Lowes or Walmart do not have this product in store, only a rust stain remover or dis solver. But at a cost of $7 to $17 for 11 oz aerosol application vs $3.76. I'll take this product from a cost prospective from my research they are not meant to dry to touch, I think for my application this will work for me but clearly understand some of the unfavorable reviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is *not* paint ... I can see where somebody might be upset if they thought this was an anti-rust paint, like the regular Rustoleum spray paints. It is not. It is a spray-on anti-rust coating that sticks well to metal and provides a lubricant-style coating. It works *very* well if you're aware of what it is and how it's intended to be used. But it does *not* dry, and would not work well if it did dry. I live in an oceanfront environment and it works well in fighting salt-air corrosion. But I would *not* use it indoors or on decorative items. Works best for tools, equipment, undercoating of utility vehicles, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product-I knew it wasn't Spray Paint No where on the can does it state it's Spray Paint. When u go blindly into HD and ask for assistance, ur taking matters into ur own hands. Read what you buy. It's your own fault. This product does EXACTLY what it advertises. Works like a charm. AND IT DRIES TO THE TOUCH IN 2 HOURS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Dries This stuff never dries. In fact I think it's just WD40. It smells and feels just like it. I can't imagine putting it on something that you would either touch or have inside your home. It made a mess of the metal shower caddy I want to put in my shower. I had to wipe it all off. Can instructions are vague and incomplete. I have no idea why it's kept in the paint section because it misleads you into thinking it's some kind of coating. It's just an oily spray.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is Oil - Not Paint! Now it makes sense why I could not find the dry time on the can's instructions. We asked a Home Depot employee in the paint section for a clear anti-rust paint. They were very quick and knew exactly where to look, for exactly the wrong item: this can. It is not paint. Paint dries. This substance remains a liquid. We're going back for a refund and to locate something that will actually work. Let's think about this too... a picture of a shovel is on the can? The instructions indicate you only have to protect what you spray every 6 to 12 months. So if you have some tools you only plan on using once or twice a year, this is your product! This "spray paint" works great for things you do not intend to touch or even use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this isn't a coating! Second the other review here--I bought this in the paint section after asking for a UV resistant polyurethane to protect a metal gazebo from rust. This was recommended. Got home and started spraying this, and realized it's not drying. It's some kind of oil, and has nothing to do with a coating to prevent rust. Arrrrghhh! Now I have to return it, wipe it off and paint over it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Despite the title, this is NOT paint! Misleading. Like others, I thought this would provide a transparent, water-resistant coating. it's not!! This does not dry! I can see the applications for it, but it should not be in the paint section. Nor should HD market it as such! It applies an oily covering similar to WD40. Smells like it too. Ugh!!
