Product Overview

Rust-Oleum Rusty Metal Primer Spray bonds tightly to rust to form a surface that topcoats can easily adhere to. This formula drives out corrosive air and moisture other primers leave behind. Provides more than twice the rust protection of using enamels alone.
  • Rusty metal primer is designed for heavily rusted surfaces only
  • Features a comfort tip with a wider finger pad to reduce fatigue caused by continuous spraying; in addition, there is an any-angle spray feature that allows you to spray in any direction, even upside down
  • Dries in as little as 15 minutes for your convenience and covers an area of up to 20 sq. ft.
  • Durable, corrosion-resistant
  • Can be used indoors or outdoors for versatility
  • Use of primers promotes topcoat adhesion
  • Easy clean-up with mineral spirits
  • Actual paint colors may vary from on-screen and printer representations
  • California residents

Clean as much rust off as you can. Then give a good cleaning with something like paint thiner. This is a good product but heavily rusted metal is not easily painted over even with good primer.

Great Stuff
I am restoring an old cast-iron woodworking machine. I labored over the old rusted surface with wire brush and used strippers on the bits of old paint residue and then used this primer. It produced the best primed surface ever! I am very pleased.

Great rusty metal project coverage, hands down!
The rusty metal primer spray by Rust-oleum is by far the easiest and best primer paint I have used in a long time. Coverage was great, drying time quick and ease of use was superior to other spray paint I have used. No runs drips or errors!

Love this paint for coverage and longevity. Only problem is getting bum cans lately which don't have enough gas in them. I have gotten several of this brand in different colors that are still 3/4 full, but stop working and are not clogged. Imagine starting a project that takes an entire can and having it quit on you half way through the job. Even got one that didn't work as soon as I opened it.

great coverage
I bought this to paint an old lamp base. I am restoring the lamp and the base was very rusted. I used a rust removing gel and I still had rust. I remembered that there are primers just for rusted objects. Now its smooth And I don’t have to worry about the rust coming through and ruining the base coverplate that I repainted as well.
