Do I need to sand after I apply if it bubbles up and/or to get ride of rust?

Do I need to sand after I apply if it bubbles up and/or to get ride of rust?
Asked by: Louis
As long as the rust is covered, Louis, it'll be just fine. Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer is designed to be applied over rusty surfaces. If you wanted to smooth out the surface, you certainly could by sanding. Keep in mind that if you do decide to sand, that you'll want to allow the product to sit for 24 hrs before recoating to avoid wrinkling.

Use on a rusty baseboard heater?

Baseboard heater in the bathroom is very rusty. Can I spray this on, and paint over? With light-colored paint?
Asked by: schmicknick
Haven't had good luck preventing rust coming through with this product. Recommend you use the paint-on rustoleum rust converter. Also be careful about max operating temperatures - the rust converters have a 200F max temperature. Shouldn't be a problem if this is a water-heating system baseboard, as they typically run at 150-160F, but just in case you are running the heating loop at higher temps.

Does it come in white or clear?

We intend to paint over it with white so black wouldn't work.
Asked by: Beachmama
Our Stops Rust Rust Reformer Spray is only available in black. We do offer a brush on version of our Rust Reformer which is white prior to application, however, this coating turns black when applied over rust: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Automotive-8-oz-Black-Rust-Reformer-6-Pack-248659/204721408

I was at HD looking for the Loktite rust converter (whis is the real thing) but they didn't carry it, the OTHER big hardware store does. Made the mistake of using this before reading the MSDS info. There is no rust converter in this product, just paint. The ph of the good stuff is 1.8 which eats into rust and stabilizes it. This just covers it and it will return. False advertising. Shame on me for trusting the label.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More Of A Primer This product, although it claims to be a rust reformer, seems more like a primer. At the very least it doesn't seem to penetrate rust the way the old bottles of Rust-Oleum rust reformer did. If sprayed on too thin, this product will allow rust to show through it. If chipped or abraded, which does take effort, underlying rust will be exposed. [I am aware that Rust-Oleum also makes paint, but I was careful to verify that the can I bought said "rust reformer" on it. The can matches the image on this page. I'm also aware that the instructions call for removing loose rust. I did.] If you just need a metal primer, then this is probably a good product for you. If you need to prevent further corrosion, this may also work for you. However, there are better rust reformers and removers out there. If you want to remove rust, Evaporust works pretty well and claims to be nontoxic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product I use this on bare metal welding projects outside and on used rusty metal. It dries quick, kills rust and and looks good as a finish or works as an excellent primer.rust will not bleed back through because it converts the rust into a protective coating.
Date published: 2013-04-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Marginal as a converter... Makes for a great primer on lightly rusted metal. But...needs a minimum of 4-5 coats to actually work as a converter and prevent rust bleedthrough. If you need a real rust converter, just order the Rustoleum 8 oz rust converter in the bottle...With two coats of that you don't even need to paint on top of it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I have an aluminum fire pit set that is about two years old. The chairs and the pit still look good but the bowl and screen are not aluminum so they are showing rust and wear. I'm having a new bowl made but I bought this Rust Reformer to try and save the screen. I did multiple light coats until I had full coverage. The screen has been rained on and used twice and there is still no sign of the old rust. I did however follow up with a coat of high temperature spray paint. I read some of the other reviews where people didn't get the results they wanted. I used this product once before to restore the security bars on my mother's house. For that project I did some light sanding first. That was over six years ago and they still look good. In my opinion this product works well but if the surface is caked on textured rust you going to want to sand to a somewhat smooth surface first.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Followed instructions and used on a couple of rusted legs of a swing seat and it apparently didn't stop the rust. Furniture in lanai so not directly exposed to water, just humidity. After a few months one of the treated legs just crumbled off at the bottom where I had sprayed it.
