Questions & Answers

Use on chipped metal bath tub(as a primer)?

If possible to use, then can it be topped with rust olium bath and tile spray?
Asked by: mo
We do not recommend using Zinsser Metal Primer in a bath tub. This product is not designed to withstand the constant submersion of water. To prepare the surface for application of Rust-Oleum Tub and Tile Spray Paint, first, remove loose paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Repair chips and cracks with a patching compound similar to Liquid Steel®. Remove any mildew with a solution of bleach and water and rinse thoroughly then repeat if necessary. Scrub surface with and abrasive pad and abrasive cleaner like Comet® to remove all dirt, grease, mold, oil, soap film and hard water deposits. Remove all caulk and wipe those areas with a non-oily solvent such as isopropyl alcohol. Prepare the surface with an abrasive pad and Lime-A-Way® cleaner to create a slightly porous surface for strong adhesion. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. Scrub the entire surface again and rinse with fresh water. Sand entire surface with 400-600 grit wet/dry sandpaper. Rinse the surface thoroughly with fresh water to remove all residues. Allow the surface to dry for at least 90 minutes before applying paint. Wipe the surface with a tack cloth immediately before painting to remove any remaining dust and lint. Always test product in a small, hidden area before painting.

How about using to color my metal headboard and footboard??

Asked by: Relle
Since Rust-Oleum Zinsser Metal Primer is a primer, it dose require the use of a topcoat to ensure full adhesion and durability. In ideal conditions, this primer can be topcoated after 24 hours. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Hi Gabe, thank you for reaching out! While our Zinsser Metal Primer is not available in white, our Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer is an excellent choice for the same type of surface priming: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Stops-Rust-1-qt-Flat-White-Clean-Metal-Primer-7780502/100126115 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
