Q:Will it work on pool enclosure aluminum
by|Apr 6, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We're happy to help, Chris. While Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer can be applied to aluminum surfaces if the surface will be exposed to high levels of moisture this will cause the finish to blister and peel. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

    Q:Is this Primer recommended for use on high heat applications such as a firebox on a Smoker or Grill?
    by|Oct 2, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for reaching out! Our Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Primers and Enamels are not recommended for surfaces that will exceed 200°F. For high heat surfaces, we recommend using our Rust-Oleum Specialty High Heat Spray Paints, directly to the metal, outside portion of the grill: https://www.homedepot.com/b/Paint-Industrial-Paint-High-Heat-Paint/Rust-Oleum-Specialty/N-5yc1vZ1z18gz5Z8l5 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

      Q:IF I USE RUST KUTTER ON GALVANIZED METAL FIRST, CAN I USE RUST-OLEUM ( STOP RUST ) CLEAN METAL PRIMER SECOND ? ( ALL READY HAVE THE PRIMER )
      by|Aug 22, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  We're happy to help, Steven. We do not recommend applying Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer to galvanized metal, as it will not adhere properly. Please note that Rust Kutter is a different brand, and we have not tested its compatibility with our Clean Metal Primer. We would recommend applying a test patch before applying to your entire project. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

          SHAKE WELL
          When I first sprayed the fixture I did NOT shake the can well enough. I’m really upset about it because I had to sand it down and reprime it. I shook it for about 5 minutes so I assumed that would be good but I would recommend spray testing before using on your actual project. The second light (smaller vanity light) turned out perfect and smooth. I guess I shook it better the second time I used the same can. One can was used on these two fixtures and I still have over half a can left!

            Cloggs up the nozzles.
            I had a can of this spray primer for a while and I do all the recommended steps. Shake for at least 1 minute (my personal minimum is 3 minutes), I clean the nozzle between uses. Still clogs the nozzles. I had a can of Automotive primer (gray in color) that I used up but the nozzle was still good. Tried it on this can and it did the same thing after about 3 minutes of spraying. The picture I attached has the gray and white primer on the nozzle. I also wish Rust-o-leum sold replacement nozzles.

              Priming metal surfaces before painting
              I am no DIY expert but, it has recently become a hobby. I found that this product made my final color stand out and adhere very well to the table I was refurbishing.

              Its hard to judge this product, it is probably the most durable primer for metal, however in the wrong hands it can run easily as a few members reported. With that said I had a professional sprayer coat two fenders and a hood and not one drip, so this is the correct product in the right hands. If your not used to spraying and spraying something ( especially vertically) where the finish is of great significance like a car, I wouldn't take on the task yourself, get someone with experience as it is extremely difficult to sand off, which is a good thing. If this is for a mailbox or so, than have at it.

                This primer worked really great on my wrought iron railings. I striped them down to bare metal with my angle grinder and sprayed this on the next morning. About 15 mins later I went into two coats of satin Canyon Black paint. Everything bonded really well and I am pleased with the results. I will note when spray painting, you need to cover any area you dont want paint on. I found that especially true with this primer. It 'travelled' further than the black paint. Can has good coverage, thick coat. Both railings took 3 cans/coat.

                Great spray paint
                The coverage of the white primer applied well on both bare metal and previous painted prepared surfaces.
