  3. Yes, an infrared thermometer will work great and what we had in mind.
  4. Didn't think to use a thermometer, good idea. An infrared thermometer should do the trick, as long as I don't measure the direct heat from the gun, unless I'm wrong?
  5. Yes, use a surface thermometer and the heat gun together to cure a piece that has been coated with XTC or XTC Primer. Get the surface to 300-350F and keep it there for 20-30 minutes. After that, let the piece come back to room temperature naturally (do not purposely cool it down). Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  6. Is it possible to heat cure the painted parts, off the car, with a heat gun? I've come across some heat guns that will go up to 1000 degrees
  7. When we are doing the KBS Tank Sealing System, we typically use duct tape and you can find that at any hardware store or paint store. Duct tape is sticky and tough which makes it work well for sealing up holes on the tank as you do the KBS Tank Sealing System. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  8. Where can I get the tape for sealing when preparing to seal a motorcycle tank?
  9. 1) If the primer is a flat finish (not glossy), you do not need to sand or scuff. If it is glossy, yes, please scuff it with 300 grit. 2) The best way to do seam sealer is to get the RustSeal down first so the surface is sealed up (key for rust prevention) and then do the Seam Sealer. 3) If the new metal is freshly primed (still clean), you do not need to use KBS Klean or RustBlast. If the new metal is not primed, yes, clean the surface well with KBS Klean and etch it well with RustBlast before applying RustSeal. 4) No, you do not need to top coat RustSeal when the surfaces being coated will not be exposed to sunlight.

  10. I am building a 71 bronco. it was so rusty that I bought a reproduction steel tub. when I bought it I spent some time to wire wheel the underside and epoxy prime it. I was not sure what I wanted to do with it. I am now considering using your rust seal on it. my questions are 1. do I need to scuff or sand off the primer? 2. do I need to seam seal before applying the rust seal? 3. since this is new metal with no rust, do I need to do the cleaner or rust convertor? do I need to top coat it since it is going to be under the vehicle? thanks
  11. That is a great question. For non-ferrous metals (aluminum, copper, brass, etc.), clean the surface with KBS Klean at a dilution rate of 25 parts hot water to 1 part KBS Klean (4% strength) with the use of a very soft non-abrasive cleaning pad. Rinse the KBS Klean solution immediately making sure you do not let it sit on the surface and dry in a way that minimizes any water stains. Be sure to check out the complete KBS Klean Directions and let us know if that helps you and if you have any additional questions.
  12. I bought the RustSeal sample kit for use on a small area on a BMW motorcycle engine. The area is on a forward facing non-ferrous cast plate, probably aluminum alloy. I have been able to remove most of the paint from the area. In your directions you indicate that application times and dilution rates for KBS Klean should be kept to a minimum. Can you be more specific similar to the directions for KBS Klean use on non-ferrous metals?
  13. Yes, you can wait to do the temperature cure. We recommend doing the temperature cure within 30 days. After proper dry time, XTC and XTC Primer will be dry to the touch and can be handled using care, but resins will not reach full hardness until heated to approx. 350° F (176° C). For headers or manifolds, this can be done in an oven, BBQ, or by mounting back on engine and run to normal operating temperature. If you are coating an intake, you will probably need to do the temperature cure in an oven or grill as the intake usually does not get to 350F. Hopefully that helps. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.
  14. So can I wait to do the temperature cure until I have the parts back in the engine? Or do they have to be cured within a week?
  15. Yes, you can apply your coats of XTC Primer (with the appropriate time between coats) and then wait up to 7 days before you apply the XTC and then do your temperature cure. Please carefully review the XTC Primer Directions and the XTC Directions before starting your project and reach out to us if you have any further questions.
  16. Hi, I'm currently in the process of fixing my car, cleaning and painting parts along the way. It's somewhat a slow process as I get the money together for everything, so I'm proceeding step by step. I have for example my aluminum plenum off, ready to scrub and clean it. But of course, I want to avoid flash rust. My question is, could I apply XTC primer to the parts and wait for a week or so before painting color and clear coats on it? Or is it better to apply the other products right after the drying time of the XTC primer? Thanks in advance
  17. This is a great question. Thanks for asking! When you put down 2 coats (recommended) of RustSeal on a prepped surface, you will end up with 5 mils of dry film thickness. Do you have 5 mils of clearance when the pieces of the hinge close? if you do, RustSeal would be an excellent choice for sealing up this surface. When you coat it, wait at least 24-48 hours before you operate the hinge to make sure the RustSeal is fully cured. Please let us know if this helps and if you have any additional questions.
  18. After the Motor Coater has cured for at least 7 days, you can clear coat over Motor Coater with DiamondFinish Clear. Always apply the DiamondFinish Clear in thin coats. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  19. I'm restoring a small vintage tool box and doing the three step process to end up with hopefully a nice silver painted, rust proof tool box. My question is this small box has a piano type of hinge like many small tool boxes. I'm wondering how the paint will react with the hinge. Will it flow into the hinge and still allow the hinge to work? Or will it gum up the hinge and make a mess? Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
  20. what clear coat can be used over motor coater?
  21. 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! 👍
  22. 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.

  23. 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?
  24. 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....
  25. 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.
  26. Kind of a beige color.
  27. 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?
