POR-15 is a rust-preventive paint designed for application directly on rusted or seasoned metal surfaces. It dries to a rock-hard, non-porous finish that won’t chip, crack, or peel, and it prevents rust from re-occurring by protecting metal from further exposure to moisture.
Surface Preparation: To coat rusted or bare metal surfaces. Remove grease, oil, and other foreign substances using POR-15® water-based cleaner and prep products per the listed instructions. Stir POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating thoroughly, then dispense a quantity of POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating into a separate container to avoid contamination.
APPLICATION: Apply in thin coats. Always apply a minimum of two coats. If necessary, only thin with POR-15® Solvent, up to 5%. POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating may be recoated or topcoated when dry to the touch with a slight “finger drag”, typically 2 to 6 hours. To coat over cured POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating, scuff the surface with 320 grit sandpaper until gloss is dull, and then apply coating.
CLEAN UP: Use POR-15® Solvent for clean-up, which must be done before POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating dries; once dry, POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating cannot be removed by any solvent. Use of gloves and ventilating equipment is strongly recommended. Avoid skin contact. Remove from skin at once to avoid temporary staining. Moisture will shorten the life of unused POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating. Seal can immediately after dispensing.
