    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    Yes, spraying RustSeal with an HVLP Gun for irregular surfaces like diamondplate would be ideal. It will lay out best that way. 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. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    It was not fusion primer, it was another self etching primer. We have used it in the past on flat surfaces without an issue but the diamond plate has been a challenge. We are applying rust seal in thin coats but perhaps maybe not thin enough. Would I be better off spraying it on with a hvlp gun?

    Thanks for the reply. RustSeal is designed to be apply very thin. If you apply RustSeal thin, it might fall off of the edges on the first coat but the second and subsequent coats will cover well. Are you using Fusion Self-Etch Primer or another primer?

    It was new steel so we started off by cleaning it twice with KBS Klean. I know from previous experience that it needs to be perfectly clean to work properly. After cleaning and drying we primed with a self etching primer and waited at least 30 minutes per the instructions on the can. Then we proceeded to apply the rust seal with a brush.

    How did you prep the tread plate before applying RustSeal? Please let us know so we can assist you further.

    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    When trying to coat steel tread plate with Rust Seal we are running into a problem where the self leveling properties of the coating prevent the edges of the diamonds from being coated. Is there a trick to this?

    So, my aerosol technique might not be the best. Ended up with a lot of orange peel (probably laid it on too thick). Oven cured it, as that seems to smooth it out just a bit. Had some Meguire's "fine cut" #2 cleaner and tried it on the proverbial "inconspicuous" area. Smoothed it right out. Finished it with a coat of Meguire's NXT Tech Wax and it is glossy, smooth and rock hard. Now looks like the powdercoat it is replacing. Pretty amazing stuff.
  12. KBS Top Coater is a superior coating formulated to be brushed, rolled or sprayed offering maximum coverage and professional looking results. KBS Top Coater is an ideal top coat paint for RustSeal when the area will be consistently exposed to sunlight. KBS Top Coater is a very high solids paint that does not run or sag, and gives at least twice the coverage of conventional paints.

  14. “I used KBS Paint Stripper to remove many layers of old undercoating from the wheel wells on my 69 Mustang. It worked extremely well. I sprayed it on once and let is work and it just fell off easily with a scraper. I sprayed it on a 2nd time to do a final cleanup then finished off the wells with a sanding disk the followed up with KBS Klean.” -Stacey

    Oil Run off?

    We have tested the KBS UnderCoat extensively and the coatings did not show signs of softening or degradation due to temperature or humidity and no signs of runoff. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    Oil Run off?

    Hey, this may seem odd but does anyone know if asphalt/-rubberized undercoating has any sort of run-off, i.e. oil runoff with moistures/high humidity? considering using uncercoating to cover some parts in a septic water system. thanks for your thoughts and opinions

    Thanks for your inputs. I will try this over the course of the next couple of weeks and try to remember to post the results here.
  23. The best way to prevent orange peel is to thin the DiamondFinish Clear up to 30% with KBS #1 Thinner and make sure you apply as thin as you can for each coat. You also want to be sure to apply when it is the least humid which helps the DiamondFinish Clear solvents not evaporate so fast. Please let us know if those suggestions help and if you have any additional questions.
  24. I have been using KBS to coat soft foam poppers for flyfishing. If I dip them and let them hang I get an acceptable finish but have to deal with drips in the mount that products undesirable results. Dipped and Hung..... Acceptable finish. Problem is if I dont keep chasing the drips I end up with bubbles on the lips. If I put them on the wheel I end up with orange peal. I need a method that I can dip them and put them on a wheel because it is the fasted way to get them coated. I do this with epoxy and have no problem. The heads are painted with Createx Wicked Colors and heat set. Any suggestions....... Brad

    Rust coming through Rust Seal coat

    It is important to know that Tank Sealer does not stick well to cured Tank Sealer without some help. With that in mind, here is what you can do to put a second coat of Tank Sealer in your tank. 1) Clean the inside of the tank extremely well with KBS Klean to get rid of all fuel residue. The sealed tank needs to be very clean. Let the tank dry out 100%. 2) Pour some Fusion Self-Etch Primer in the tank. Roll around so all sides have a nice thin coat and drain out the excess. (Fusion is designed to go on as a dust coat so thin is perfect). 3) Let the tank sit overnight so the Fusion Self-Etch Primer has proper time to cure. 4) Pour another can of Tank Sealer in the tank. Rotate the tank slowly and get all sides coated evenly and then drain out the excess. Be careful to not let the Tank Sealer puddle. 5) Let the tank cure for at least 4 days before putting it back in service. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    I sealed the inside of the tank. My posting was incorrect (went back and checked) - I used Tank Sealer, as you suggest. Thanks for your prompt response. and looking forward to your help with this.

    Rust coming through Rust Seal coat

    RustSeal is typically used on the outside of a tank and Tank Sealer is used on the inside. Just for clarification and so we can give you the best advice, did you coat the outside of the inside of the tank?
