  2. Yes, you can apply RustSeal over fully cured seam sealer. Scuff the seam sealer with 300 grit (lightly) and then clean the surface well with KBS Klean. Let the seam sealer surface get bone dry and then apply RustSeal. Always thin coats and never heavy coats. At least 2 coats of RustSeal is best. It is best practice to seal up the weld area with RustSeal after the weld area has been cleaned with KBS Klean and etched with RustBlast. Once you have the weld sealed up with RustSeal, then do the seam sealer. This is the best long term way to protect those areas from rusting.
  3. Can I use rust seal over seam sealer that is already on floors and rockers? Should I use rust seal instead of seam sealer on future welds?

  5. We have not tested KBS #1 Thinner for wiping fully cured coatings (as this is not what it was designed for) but in general, KBS #1 Thinner should not damaged fully cured coatings. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
  6. Thank you. I taped off the outside door and applied rust reformer to the inside lower door seam. When I removed the tape I noticed that some rust reformer still got to the outside door. I used KBS #1 Thinner to remove the rust reformer from the outside door. Was that wise? Would this damage the paint on the outside door?
  7. It is always best to mask off areas you do not want coated when painting. Hopefully that helps. Please reach out if you have any additional questions.
  8. What would be the best way to prevent Rust Reformer from getting on the outside of my car door while I apply it to the inner lower door seam?
  9. “I work for a company called Industrial Emergency Counsel. We have a aircraft simulator to train airport firefighters. Recently I use the XTC Rocket Red paint and it’s holding up very well! Please see the pictures. Words cannot explain what your paint is holding up to. I think we could use this prop as a commercial showing how well your XTC holds up to the most extreme conditions!” -Rich from Sacramento, CA XTC is a high temperature/heat resistant coating formulated specifically to protect metal surfaces operating at temperatures from 500°F (260°C) to 1500°F (812°C).
  10. You can use KBS Strip in a tank and it will not hurt the tank if there is not an actual coating in the tank. The rust in the tank will not hinder the effectiveness of the KBS Strip. Tip: When using the KBS Strip, warm the KBS Strip to 80F and have the surface of the tank as close to 80F as possible. The warmer temperatures make the KBS Strip much more effective. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  11. On the KBS 3 Step Tank Sealer System, you can use zinc coated bb's as the agitator with KBS Klean as long as you feel confident that you can get all of the bb's out when the step is complete. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  12. I know it is recommended to use an agitator when cleaning a gas tank to help break up rust. My question is, with the 3 step process, i.e. aqua klean and the rust remover, is it a problem to use zinc coated steel BBs as the agitator? Will this cause some sort of bad chemical reaction or mess with the BBs and leave residue in the tank? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  13. I bought a motorcycle and am about to clean the gas tank out and seal it. I looked in the tank and it seems to have a lot of rust. But my friend thinks that it also has old sealer or liner on it. My question is, if i use the Strip in the tank and its not lined will it hurt the tank? Also, will the rust that is in the tank affect the ability of the Strip? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. As long as the surface stays clean out of the elements, you do not need to do any prep when apply another coating over a surface that has been etch with RustBlast. Please let us know of that helps and if you have any other questions.
  15. That definitely helps. I have another question. If I am not able to apply the rust reformer on the same day as I apply the KBS Rust Blast, do you have any suggestion s on how I should prep the area before I apply the rust reformer?

  17. “Used DiamondFinish Clear to coat my new aluminum flagpole. Product went on like a dream. Flagpole looks great and my DIY coating saved me a couple hundred dollars for a "factory finish”. The product appears to be very tough, withstanding the constant "clanking" of the halyard clips. Now I'm looking for other applications!” -Kevin from Portland, TN With a little imagination, DiamondFinish Clear has an unlimited number of applications for clear coating over steel surface as well as non-ferrous surfaces like polished aluminum. DiamondFinish Clear is a crazy t
  18. If you brush over an area over and over again with RustSeal forcing the solvents out, you run the risk of the brush marks not flowing out as well they are designed to flow out. That is all. Nothing other than cosmetic. Yes, you can use KBS Klean to remove toluene residue and we highly recommend that. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  19. Yes, DiamondFinish Clear will adhere to glass. Clean the glass really well with KBS Klean and a green pad. Let the surface get bone dry. Then apply DiamondFinish Clear. Always thin coats and at least 2 coats. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  20. Yes, you can apply RustSeal over any cured coating like Rust Reformer that has been lightly scuff with 300 grit and cleaned with KBS Klean. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  21. HI, 1.,I wonder if I overworked the paint while brushing as it was going off pretty quick it was not sticky anymore after approx 2 hrs. Gave it 2nd coat, so it is what it is now, just wondering what are the consequences of overworking it? 2.,For next area I need to paint, I wonder how I can remove the toluene residue, as I needed to use thinners to remove some mastic and adhesive. Instructions says toluene residue is a no-no. Thanks!
  22. will diamondfinish stick to glass? Like to seal cracks in a solar panel?
  23. Yes, you can put DiamondFinish Clear over a fully cured UV stable solid color top coat. This adds gloss and durability. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  24. Many thanks for the continued answers. Also, I had one more question. Once I paint over the rust seal, is the clear diamond finish over the solid color a good idea?
  25. As long as the surface is still clean, simply scuff with 300 grit. That is all you need to do and the solid color top coat will adhere very well. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  26. Also, once I paint over the rust seal, is the clear diamond finish over the solid color a good idea?
  27. This definitely helps. Thanks! Do you recommend any particular preparation to the rust seal, other than the scuffing, before applying the solid color over it?
  28. Yes, you can apply RustSeal over fully cured Rust Reformer that has been scuffed up slightly with 300 grit. We recommend a solid color top coat over RustSeal when the RustSeal will be exposed to sunlight on a consistent basis. We do not recommend a clear coat (like DiamondFinish Clear) over RustSeal. For car door seams, most people would coat over the RustSeal with touch up paint from your car dealer. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
