Product Details

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
  • Return Policy
  • California residents

Q:Directions show to use between 50-90 degrees. It won't be in that temp range outside for months where I live. What happens if I use at 45 degrees? Longer dry time, or will the product not effectively work long term?

Answer This Question

A:  I do not know the answer to your question but many manufacturers specify ranges with a relatively large margin of error.

    A:  Happy to help, Steve. It is essential that Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer Spray is applied within the recommended temperatures. This will ensure proper drying of the primer. Please keep in mind, since this product is a primer, it must be topcoated with an opaque coating to ensure longevity and lasting results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thanks for reaching out, Tom. Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer is not suitable for priming a sink faucet. We have no other primer we can recommend for that high moisture environment. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

        Q:I am redoing an old yard cart that is in pretty bad shape. No rust through. Paint faded off and heavy surface rust. Is this what I need or do you suggest something else? I intend to knock all the rust off that I can without sandblasting.

        A:  Happy to help, Gene! Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer Spray is great for rusty metal surfaces. For lasting results, we recommend removing any loose or flaking rust. A wire brush can be used to help with removal. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

          Q:Is it safe for evaporator coil frame which might be coded in galvanized (zinc) and copper?

          Answer This Question

          A:  We appreciate your interest, Charlie, however we do not recommend Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer Spray, or any oil-based paint, for use on galvanized surfaces. The zinc on the surface will prevent these types of paints from properly adhering. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

            Better than regular primer!
            An incredible one coat product with the perfect color. Not too red, not too brown.

            Old reliable
            Used it for years, love the stuff. Not always able to completely clean rust off of my projects and this helps me get past that. I also love the color and have used it to help camouflage things against red rock

            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!

            Response from Rust-OleumSupportNov 17, 2022
            It sounds like the nozzle was clogged. Inside each can of Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Rusty Metal Primer Spray is a dip tube that pulls the paint from the bottom of the can to the tip. If the pigment in the paint is too big or if there's not enough pressure behind it, it can get stuck in the tube or tip and the paint won't spray. Try turning the can upside down and spraying for a few seconds. If the clog is in the tip, soaking it in mineral spirits should clear it out. To prevent clogging, it is essential that the can is shaken for a full minute before each use and that you are shaking often during application.
