I bought 4 litres of Kill Rust Alluminium, but its a bit too bright, can I mix some KR black to grey it down a bit, will they mix?
Can I paint an external plastic grille fridge cover on a caravan with Killrust satin Enamel?
I'm struggling with a large van that has 'house paint' on top of acrylic auto-paint. It appears to be a 'good' house paint but it's Matt finish Black and looks to have been sprayed over dirt, chips etc. I've chosen Killrust because anything else won't stick. Areas I have tried show it's best to do NO prep and the Killrust shows a good finish. However, where I prime or remove rust or sand out a stone chip, the Killrust lifts everything under it, no matter what I use. When I sand it back, it still lifts on the edges of what I've sanded. What can I use as a non-reactive primer? John V
Can a clear coat over killrust spray can work ?
Never tried but clear coat is in reverse peel as it lifts form a rust under it , as far as I know rust kill kills it and putty is recommend so rust kill is multipurpose for over top not as it has this..., try putting and let run and paint brush it with a good metal scrapper it won't flatten rust for that look I'm just spraying can to eliminate soft metal welds that should assist and was looking more for fumes etc that over spray
I used Wattyl Kill rust eeter on my metal. I waited 24 hours overnight (no rain) and painted it with Wattyl Heavy Duty Primer. After checking it in the morning, it appears air bubbles have formed under a large sections of the Green Heavy Duty Primer.
What do I do? How do I fix this. I need to coat it with Killrust Epoxy Gloss Enamel.
AIR UNDER -AS DID NOT WAIT FOR BOTTOM COAT to DRY.,REMOVE affected areas.start again.Rust Converters can take 72 hrs up to week.Wipe over before next coat.
Is it suitable for painting a car ??
It doesn't have the shine or flat/ smoothness of an automotive paint, so I wouldn't paint the outside unless it's a car you don't care too much how it looks - I.e. like a race or rally car. But it is ...very suitable to paint the rest of the car, engine bay, boot, interior, anywhere that's been rusty etc. I have painted the inside of many cars with this product and been very happy with the result. I've just used a brush, but if you spray it it will be even better.
Thanks heaps for your reply cheers
do you know if it would be okay to put it on the calipers? what kind of heat resistance does it have?
I had been fabricating with some galvanized pipe 800mm long and bare angle steel supports. As per normal, I ground the gal back for welding. In my hast, I sprayed all this with some Red Oxide Primer. Then, oh, whoops, I plan to weld another pipe to this, and more brackets and had always intended to paint the join and plates with Cold Gal ( or Galvit -- what's the difference? ) My question is, can I paint Cold Gal over the Red Oxide for appearance sake. Where this pipe is going there is already many other pipes with brackets Cold Gal painted at the welds, supporting Duragal Tube also with Cold Gal over the welds. My lesser action would be to mask off and spray the red oxide area with silver!!!? Advice would be appreciated please.
