  2. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Your customer service is simply amazing, both here on the forum & via email. And from all accounts your products are as well. Thank you so much. We already ordered 4 pints because I was having a bad-math day. We'll be hitting you up for the remaining gallon + thinner next week! 👍
  3. 1) Yes, a RustSeal gallon typically covers 200 sq ft with 2 coat coverage. Yes, for 150 sq ft and 4 coats, 1.5 gallons should be the correct amount. 2) Yes, lay down the BackBone Mesh in the first coat of RustSeal and then apply additional coats of RustSeal over it using the correct time frame between coats. 3) A low nap foam roller is best. Thin RustSeal 10% with KBS #1 Thinner when rolling. 4) Yes, you can walk on the previous coat of RustSeal with painters booties. That is no problem at all. People do large concrete floors all of the time and do exactly this. 5) Yes, that should be fine. Please make sure the surface is bone dry before applying RustSeal. We want your project to be a complete success so please be sure to read through carefully the following documents which will ensure your success using KBS Coatings.

  4. Greetings! Many questions so please bear with me. We'll be using KBS to coat the partially-rusted interior floor (galvanized) of a school bus. We also wish to use KBS & fiberglass mesh to seal bolt / screw holes in the floor. 1) I've read 1 gallon is good for 2 coats & 200 sq ft. Is this correct? We plan on 4 coats, so for our 150 sq ft, I figured 1.5 gallons would be about right. 2) We have many old bolt/screw holes to fill using fiberglass mesh. Smaller holes ~2mm diameter, larger holes ~10mm. Would you recommend we lay down the fiberglass on first coating and then just lay down successive coats as usual, or should we patch and coat the holes as a separate step entirely? If as a separate step, would it be better to patch holes first, or coat first? 3) Because it's a bus, I hope apply most of the kbs with a roller. is this OK, and if so, what composition & nap of roller should I use? 4) Because it's a bus, it's going to be difficult if not impossible to lay down 2nd+ coats w/o walking on prior work. Assuming clean feet (painters booties) will this damage the prior coat? Or should I do 1/2 the bus, wait for full cure, and then the other? 5) We've already ospho'd the floor about a month ago after a vigorous cleaning & wire brushing. Your instructions say to clean/degrease the surface first, then use your brand of rust converter, and rinse. Would it hurt if I reversed the steps? For example, I was planning to 1) re-wet the floor with ospho and scrub, 2) rinse thoroughly with clean water, 3) knock the whole thing down again w/ 80 DA, 4) use your cleaner / degreaser, 5) rinse again, & dry thoroughly, and then 6) apply KBS. Will this work?

  6. Thank you! Found some MEK at the commercial paint store (hardware stores only carry substitute) and it seemed to be working, until my agitator suffered a catastrophic failure....
  7. That sounds like Kreem. You can use MEK to take that out. Your local hardware store should have that. If not, check your local paint store. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  8. Kind of a beige color.
  9. For the next month, KBS Strip does contain Methylene Chloride. After that, KBS Strip will be reformulated and will not contain Methylene Chloride because of the new EPA regulations. What color is the liner that is in the tank now?
  10. I was ready to use KBS 3 step sealer on my tank when I noticed it had been sealed before. Directions say to use KBS Strip (or a paint stripper containing Methylene Chloride) so I quick ran out to the hardware store and none of them contain Methylene Chloride because of an EPA ban. Does KBS Strip still contain this? Is it safe? Is there an effective off the shelf substitute so I don’t have to wait for delivery?
  11. KBS Klean is the key. Use it very well: Do a great job cleaning with the KBS Klean. If you do that and then skip the RustBlast, you will be fine to put down the Motor Coater once the surface is bone dry. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  12. Hello, In preparation for Motor Coater, I'm torn on using the RustBlast or taking a chance without it as I'll be accomplishing this with the engine still installed. My concern is creating a larger mess on the surrounding engine bay, frame and components underneath, etc. I understand it's not preferred but how critical is the RustBlast step considering this scenario or how "removable" is the zinc left behind on ancillary surfaces? Welcome any "gotchas' and suggestions please. Thank you!
  13. RustSeal Re-coating should be done once the first or consecutive coat is dry-to-touch and does not leave a fingerprint. Your Success is Extremely Important To Us!

  14. Thanks for the FYI. I didn't realize there should be a second coat done. Let the first coat cure and coat again?
  15. In general, for the very coarse threads of the filler neck, RustSeal should great for this application. 2 coats of RustSeal is roughly 5 mils thick and there should be enough tolerance in the coarse threads that the cap will still tighten nicely on the filler neck. Please note: Prep the tank and threads with KBS Klean and RustBlast before applying the RustSeal. This allows for maximum adhesion and durability. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  16. About to rust seal a fuel tank. I've read where a little WD-40 on threads will prevent rust seal coverage. If I let rust seal cover the threads of the fill neck, would the gas cap still fit?
  17. Going forward, please use KBS Klean when you need to clean it, KBS Klean is a powerful water based cleaner degreaser that does not leave residues. KBS Klean always works better than alcohol or solvent based cleaners. It seems like you did everything correct so the logical explanation is that the XTC coats were simply applied too heavy. XTC always performs best when it is applied in thin coats. You can apply as many coats as you desire (1 hour between coats for XTC Aerosol) but always thin coats. Please do thin coats and report back to us. We certainly believe you will get much better results.
  18. 1) This was done after the entire heating process and cooling down and left for days. I thought it hardened and would be tough. Then I wanted to custom paint a small portion so i naturally i cleaned the area by degreasing and thats when the paint came off. 2) I waited for a whole hour between light coats. 3) I waited 20 hours before heat treatment. 4) I used the aeresol version. 5) I did light the first coat and slightly heavier on the second. 6) 350F 7) 30 minutes Is it being applied too heavy?
  19. Questions: 1) Why did you rub the surface down with denatured alcohol? This is not in our directions so we are trying to understand why that was done. 2) How many hours did you wait between coats of XTC? 3) How many hours did you want before the heat cure? 4) Did you use XTC Aerosol of the non-aerosol version? 5) Did you apply normal coats of XTC or thin coats? 6) What temperature did you perform the heat cure at? 7) How long did you do the heat cure? We are looking forward to your replies and assisting you further.
  20. Hey KBS, So more questions as I'm trying to fix the paint. After I did the oven curing temperature and all, a few days later when I try to touch up the paint again, I rubbed some denatured alcohol to clean the surface and basically all the paint was removed to the bare metal if I kept scrubbing on it. Is the paint suppose to come off so easily after the curing and proper steps?
  21. OK. For a rubber coating (flat and not glossy), clean well with KBS Klean and then apply RustSeal in thin coats and 3-6 hours between coats depending on temperature and humidity. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  22. The problem is that it's not really scuffable or sandable since it's rubberized - it will just kind of smear around. The process of removing all of this would simply be impossible. Hopefully your product will at least leach into where the rust has set in on the edges and get a decent bond to the rest - it's pretty much my only option at this point. Thanks for the reply.
  23. It is always best practice to remove the old paint so RustSeal can go down on a prepped bare surface. That said, if the factory coating (meaning not a waxy film) is still adhered really well, you can scuff up the previous coating with 300 grit, clean the surface with KBS Klean and then apply RustSeal over that.

  24. I just bought a 2016 GMC Sierra and the frame has what appears to be a factory rubberized or wax coating on the frame. This coating is peeling off along many of the edges and welds but is in good shape elsewhere. Must all of this coating be removed or stripped prior to using the klean/blast/seal method or can I just remove the loose/peeling parts and klean/blast/seal over the rest? Any experience? Thanks!
  25. For XTC Primer Aerosol and XTC Aerosol, we recommend waiting an hour between coats and always apply thin coats. These 2 recommendations will help tremendously when it comes to the paint getting incredible adhesion. For oven temperature curing, we usually put some aluminum foil down over the rack and then put the piece on the aluminum foil. Then turn the oven on to 350F. Once the oven gets to temperature, start your timer. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  26. Hey KBS, After I aerosol zinc sprayed the caliper with two coats, followed by two coats of jet black. With the 15-30 minutes in between. But when i placed it on a tray to put in the oven, the contact point kind of chipped the paint off after baking. Do you have any advice? Do you think the metal tray is transferring too much heat?
