Questions & Answers

Can this be used on rebar? And, rebar then used on concrete project?

Asked by bimini March 21, 2021

Answer

Happy to clear things up. Rebar is made of galvanized metal, which the Rust-Oleum Zinsser Metal Primer will not be able to adhere to. Instead, we recommend using a latex-based primer like the Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-Bulls-Eye-1-2-3-1-qt-White-Water-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-2004/100398398 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Will this primer bond onto galvanized metal?

Asked by Mark February 8, 2021

Answer

Good question, Mark. Rust-Oleum Zinsser Metal Primer is not suitable for use over galvanized metal. When you apply an alkyd oil-based paint over zinc plated or galvanized surfaces, a chemical reaction occurs between the two materials. This process, known as “saponification”, causes a build-up of the reaction product between the zinc and the paint. Over time, the paint will begin to peel off in large sheets. This can be avoided by using a latex-based primer instead such as the Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer. The primer will act as a barrier coat and prevent the reaction from occurring. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-Bulls-Eye-1-2-3-1-qt-White-Water-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-2004/100398398 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5
