  1. Yesterday
  2. The DiamondFinish Clear instructions page says: What humidity range is considerate "moderate" and what is considered "high" ?
  3. Last week
  4. Earlier
  5. Yes, that is what it sounds like. If the surface is coated and solid, the rust spots are surely coming from somewhere else.
  6. I poked at the spots with a metal rod, seems solid but coated. I used a soft brush and a bit of simple green and the spots seem to be coming clean. So maybe just some surface spots from the exterior sanding water that got inside?
  7. Please take a wire coat hanger or something similar and unfold it and then poke those areas. When you poke, do you feel the tank or a coating? You do have a very coarse surface on the inside of your tank so it may need another coat of Tank Sealer to cover all of those peaks and valleys but we will know more once you poke those areas. We are looking forward to your reply.
  8. Couple of shots inside tank. There's some dust and tape that got inside after coating, but the small rust colored areas appeared after some water got inside at least 4 days after coating.
  9. Please post some pictures. The entire inside of the tank should be 100% coated with Tank Sealer which will prevent so you might have rust staining over the coating. The other option is that the inside of the tank was so coarse that the Tank Sealer could not properly coat all of the peaks and valleys. Once we see the pictures, we will be able to tell and provide you some feedback on how to proceed.
  10. After following the 3 step procedure for the tank sealer, which looked great, I was sanding and painting outside of the tank. Some water got into the tank during the process. I'm now seeing some small rust spots appearing inside the tank. Should I be worried, or do some sort of cleaning to see if this is an issue?
  11. Yes, absolutely. Get the seal coat (thinned) down and then at least 2 normal coats and you will be good for at least a few years and most likely 5-10 years.
  12. Ok, thank you. I think the ladders are pine and I heard exposed pine only lasts about a year outside normally but if DiamondFinish Clear can protect it by itself, that sounds great. Just didn't want to get super expensive water sealer but have them still fall apart from neglecting UV issue a year later. But you think they will last at least a few years with only sealing with DiamondFinish Clear? Thank you!
  13. A very common application for DiamondFinish Clear is clear coating wood decks that have been stained so we are not sure about the whole "eating wood" theory as we have never heard of that. The reason people seal wood with DiamondFinish Clear is to stop the wood from rotting which is what happens when moisture penetrates wood on a consistent basis. DiamondFinish Clear is typically used for decks and outdoor wood but KBS MAXX Clear can also be used. Just be sure you thin the first coat so it soaks in like we instructed you to do with the DiamondFinish Clear. Hopefully tha
  14. The wood is not currently sealed. I read UV goes through DiamondFinish Clear and UV will eat the wood. My question is what I could apply before using DiamondFinish Clear to protect the wood against UV. I'm trying to have it still look like wood when finished. Is there an (inexpensive and/or commonly available?) solution for a clear UV protective layer to use under DiamondFinish Clear as the final waterproofing layer? Sorry I don't know much about these things and may be using the wrong terms like saying sealer instead of varnish, stain, etc. ...Or would KBS
  15. Is the wood already sealed? Wood surfaces should be smooth and dry with the wood having a low moisture content. All existing failed coatings should be removed, sand smooth and remove dust. Thin initial coat of DiamondFinish Clear 30-50% with KBS #1 Thinner and apply a single covering coat to seal the wood. Allow to cure 24 hours. The wood will generally need to be sanded smooth again as DiamondFinish Clear will tend to raise the wood grain with the first coat. Sand the surface smooth with fine grade of sand paper (280-320). Apply at least an additional full coat for general applica
  16. Hi, I am making some small wood ladders that need to remain partially submerged in fresh water and will be outdoors in the sun. I would like to have clear coat UV protection for the wood before applying DiamondFinish Clear but don't see any of your products that look appropriate. What would you recommend? Thank you!
  17. It is always best to do your welding right after the sandblasting and then do the KBS 3-Step Rust Prevention System on all of the weld spots and just RustSeal on the non-welded, sandblasted areas. Be sure to handle the parts with gloved hands to keep finger oils off of the surface. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  18. I have a VW floor pan that I am going to have sandblasted. After blasting, it has a few places that will require minor weld repairs. What do you recommend for a weld through - after blasting treatment to prevent flash rusting while the weld repairs are made (guessing two weeks to a month)? Then, after repairs are made, which products do you recommend progressing through to end up with a gloss or chassis black floor pan?
  19. Yes, after 24 hours, you can wet sand a sag in DiamondFinish Clear and then cut and polish. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  20. Can you wetsand a sag Diamond coat clear, then buff
  21. Because RustSeal and KBS MAXX are incredibly durable coatings, there are thousands of applications for these incredible coatings. One of our customers used RustSeal and KBS MAXX to protect the lift in his garage. After prepping the surface, he applied both RustSeal and KBS MAXX with a brush and ended up with an incredible looking lift that will withstand the abuse that garage lifts have to endure!

  24. That is great, thank you very much. By the way are there any distributors I can reach out to in the UK, only place I can see it is on ebay, thanks! Last question what % humidity is recommended for application? Thanks
  25. DiamondFinish Clear goes over fully cured epoxy extremely well. No issues at all. Be sure the surface is clean. DiamondFinish Clear is good to 300F and for a table that is perfect. Hot mugs will be well under that temperature. DiamondFinish Clear can be cut and polished as a normal clear coat after 24 hours under normal conditions. In your application, you would polish the DiamondFinish Clear. Please review carefully the DiamondFinish Clear Directions. If you have any additional questions, please feel to reach out to us!
  26. Hi, Can I use KBS Diamond Finish ClearCoat for adding a protective heat proof layer to an epoxy resin finished table? I am trying to prevent damage to the resin if things like hot coffee mugs, ornaments are placed on it. Should I be polishing the clear coat after applying or polishing the resin? Many thanks for the help
