    Q:Will this adhere and cover powder coated metal?

    Answer This Question

    A:  We're happy to help, Chris. Yes, Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Automotive Primer Spray can be applied to all non galvanized metals. If the surface is galvanized we recommend using Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Automotive Universal Bonding Primer instead. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Automotive-12-oz-White-Universal-Bonding-Primer-Spray-6-Pack-286793/206365322 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

      Q:On heavily rusted metal, a good procedure involves loose rust/paint removal, apply rust-reformer, apply rust primer, & then protective-enamel paint? Or what would be ideal? Also, there is paint surrounding the rust. Picture attached.

      Answer This Question

      A:  We're happy to help, Caesar. When applying Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Automotive Primer to rusted surfaces we recommend removing any loose rust by sanding and then applying Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rust Reformer. It is then not necessary to apply a primer after as the Rust Reformer chemically converts the rust into a paintable surface. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

          Excellent metal primer
          To my great surprise, last week when I got into my metal paint locker I found a can of paint stripper had ate its way through it’s own can and had damaged the locker itself. This metal primer was a easy fix, looking good again.

            Absolute garbage. I've used Rustoleum primers before but for some reason this junk just wipes off the painted surface like dust. I wouldn't recommend it for anything except to ruin your project.

            Let's see if we can figure this out, Mikey! Please keep in mind that since this is a primer, we do recommend applying a topcoat to Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Automotive Primer Spray to ensure full adhesion and durability. If the primer is leaving a dusty residue on the surface, you are most likely experiencing dryspray. This occurs most often when users hold the can too far from the surface when spraying - our recommendation is 10-16" from the surface. Effects of dry spray can also happen when temperatures are too high or too low. You can try using a lint free rag slightly damp, and gently wipe the surface to remove the dusting. If it's still rough after doing that, you'll want to sand the surface with a 180 or 220 grit sandpaper and make sure it's clean and dry before recoating.

              I used Rustoleum primer in the restoration of an old book press. After that, I used two Rustoleum Gloss Protective Enamel colors for the finish: black and a new green. I am very please with the way the project turned out. See photos.
