  2. I am repainting the transmission from a 1972 Eldorado. The unit has theee different types of metal surfaces: steel, aluminum, and cast iron. I have the Klean, Rust Blast, and Motor Coater products on hand. Are there any special precautions or steps I need to take in working with these different surfaces? Thanks, Andrew
  3. spray gun

    The UnderSeal Spray Gun and Probe is perfect for spraying RustSeal into the inside of boxed frames, door panels, rocker panels, etc. Perfect for undercoating all of those hard-to-reach areas. If that is what you want to do, then this is the perfect choice. If you are looking to spray RustSeal on surfaces other than that, please grab an HVLP Spray Gun from your local hardware store, car supply store or auto body supply store. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  4. spray gun

    I am thinking about the undersea spray gun and probe. so will this gun not be used for painting?
  5. spray gun

    Because most people already have spray guns, at this time, we do not sell spray guns. However, we do sell the Pre-Val Sprayer for small hard to reach or touch up areas and we sell the UnderSeal Spray Gun and Probe which can be used for the inside of cavities. Please provide a link to the spray gun you are looking to purchase and we can assist you with your questions. In general, these are the guidelines for spraying RustSeal: FOLLOW ALL CAUTION & WARNING NOTICES WHEN SPRAYING. ALWAYS WEAR AN AIR SUPPLIED RESPIRATOR: NIOSH/MSHA approved organic vapor particulate respirator. Spray pressure of 35-45 psi (250-330kpa) for siphon/pot guns and 25-35psi (170-250kpa) for gravity/top container guns. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend a 1.4-1.5 tip size. Thinning is not generally required but if needed 5%-10% is normally adequate. Use KBS #1 Thinner only which is a slow evaporating solvent. Do not reduce RustSeal with lacquer thinner. Also remember to clean your spray gun immediately after using RustSeal. We are looking forward to your reply and assisting you further. Thanks for contacting KBS Coatings.
  6. spray gun

    On the spray gun you guys provide. do I put a regulator to the gun and if yes how much pressure? I am looking to purchase it for my trunk and floor plan kit. Also would this be good to use with the rust seal and also should I use it for the rust blast as well or other products you recommend.

  8. KBS Diamond Cold Weather Use

    Thank you for the quick response. Will update with the results.
  9. KBS Diamond Cold Weather Use

    When you apply outside of our temperature recommendations (55-82F), DiamondFinish Clear can take much longer to cure. Because it is outside of our recommendations, we have not done extensive testing. Please feel free to test it for yourself and let us know how it works for you. Please be sure to check out the complete DiamondFinish Clear Directions. We are looking forward to you reporting back as to how well this worked for you. Thanks for contacting KBS Coatings.
  10. Rust Seal & POR15

    Yes, you could use the stuff you have for the first coat (we understand trying to save money!) after you have prepped the surface with KBS Klean and RustBlast. You can then apply the RustSeal as your second coat within 3-6 hours of your first coat. Please be sure to check out the RustSeal Directions. Go ahead and let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  11. KBS Diamond Cold Weather Use

    To keep the smell out of the house I would like to dip my lures outside, let them air out for 1/2 hour then bring inside to cure. Temps are anywhere from 30-40 degs Fahrenheit outside. If I did this would it effect the finish on my lures using KBS diamond finish?
  12. Rust Seal & POR15

    Hi, I'm about to paint my freshly built steel trailer (mostly c channel - black steel). I'm going to follow the 3 step process no problem. Now I have 1l of POR15 gloss black that I'd like to use up first. Is it ok to use Rust Seal over POR15 for the 2nd coat? Thanks
  13. curing time when thinned

    DiamondFinish Clear will take 4 days to become very hard under normal conditions and will continue to harden over the following weeks. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

  19. “Here are just a few pictures of what I do, new metal art. I am looking forward to much better sales this year due to using the KBS Diamond finish. WOW!!!, what a difference. Everything has a completely different dimension than before. The different colors and even the plain raw metal stands out. I say we have the "WOW" factor now. Some of our customers who have already seen the difference are amazed. We are really excited that we discovered KBS Coatings!” -iMetalist from Burleson,TX https://www.kbs-coatings.com/Clear-Coats.html
  20. How do I prevent small opening from being sealed closed?

    If the tank is etched well with RustBlast, it is a combination of viscosity and surface tension. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  21. Sealing non-removable tank

    Yes, you can do all 3 steps (KBS Klean, RustBlast and Tank Sealer) through an access hole in the tank. Sealing tanks in sail boats where the tank is built in to the boat and can not be removed is very common. After you clean the tank with KBS Klean and then etch the tank well with RustBlast, you have to let the tank get completely bone dry and then brush on at least 2 thin covering coats of Tank Sealer allowing 12 hours between coats (this is longer than normal because of the minimal air flow on the inside of a tank). Please check out the Tank Sealer Directions making sure you remember that you are painting the Tank Sealer on versus the method that is described in the directions. Please let us know if this helps and if you have any additional questions.
  22. Sealing non-removable tank

    My boat has a non removablele 40 gallon waste water tank. I do have access through an eight inch access hole at top of tank. Given that I can’t remove the tank to rotate ir, is there a method to treat it. It appears The leak is at seam near the bottom of tank. would application with a paintbrush work?
