  1. 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.
  2. “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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. At KBS Coatings, we love Rat Rods just as much a Classic Car restored to original OEM perfection. Rat Rods are really fun and allow for creativity and artistry. But as with any vehicle, you need something to protect the vehicle and DiamondFinish Clear is an ideal clear coat to keep a patina look on your Rat Rod. Check out the 1974 Challenger and the beautiful stainless steel patina look.
  10. Yes, go ahead and do the RustBlast to etch that surface and create an ideal surface profile for the adhesion of RustSeal. Rinse with water and then dry immediately to minimize any flash rust created from the humidity in the air. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  11. 1. Can I Aquaklean/ rust blast the shiny steal, only sandblast rusty areas and rustseal it all, or would it be more beneficial to aquaklean /rust blast / water wipe blasted areas as well? As long as the sand blast material was fresh (not recycled) and the surface has been kept clean, please go straight to the RustSeal step for those areas. 2. Blasting media will be ordinary sandpit sand ( friend left many bags with me from moving) It may be beach sand, is the possible salt content a problem? No. Blow off the sand blast residue with fresh clean air. That is all you have to
  12. Yes, minimal flash rust (which is mixed with the zinc phosphate and probably mostly zinc phosphate) is perfectly fine and the zinc phosphate aids in the adhesion of the Tank Sealer. Please reach out if you have any additional questions.
  13. Yes, that is very normal unless you live in a no humidity environment like the desert. To minimize this flash rust if you desire, force dry the tank as soon as you finish rinsing the RustBlast. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any additional questions.
  14. DiamondFinish Clear is one of the most versatile clear coats on the market. DiamondFinish Clear is an ideal clear coat for restoring any painted wood surfaces including pinball machines because DiamondFinish Clear permanently bonds to the finish on the wood and adds gloss, durability and protection from the steel pinballs beating and banging on the surface. DiamondFinish Clear can also be used to seal and clear coat bare wood surfaces. The key to sealing a bare wood surface is thinning DiamondFinish Clear 30-50% with KBS #1 Thinner. This initial thinned out coat of DiamondFinish Cl
  15. Motor Coater from KBS Coatings is one of the most popular engine paints on the market and is used by auto restorers all over the world. Motor Coater is very easy to apply, offers superb coverage and yields a self-leveling professional looking finish brushed or sprayed. These engine enamels provide deep, rich pigmented colors for excellent coverage. Motor Coater is very easy to brush out and looks like it has been sprayed when brushed out but you can also get Motor Coater in the convenience of an aerosol can on most colors. Motor Coater is a very durable coat
