  1. Yes, that is what it sounds like. If the surface is coated and solid, the rust spots are surely coming from somewhere else.
  2. Please take a wire coat hanger or something similar and unfold it and then poke those areas. When you poke, do you feel the tank or a coating? You do have a very coarse surface on the inside of your tank so it may need another coat of Tank Sealer to cover all of those peaks and valleys but we will know more once you poke those areas. We are looking forward to your reply.
  3. Please post some pictures. The entire inside of the tank should be 100% coated with Tank Sealer which will prevent so you might have rust staining over the coating. The other option is that the inside of the tank was so coarse that the Tank Sealer could not properly coat all of the peaks and valleys. Once we see the pictures, we will be able to tell and provide you some feedback on how to proceed.
  4. Yes, absolutely. Get the seal coat (thinned) down and then at least 2 normal coats and you will be good for at least a few years and most likely 5-10 years.
  5. A very common application for DiamondFinish Clear is clear coating wood decks that have been stained so we are not sure about the whole "eating wood" theory as we have never heard of that. The reason people seal wood with DiamondFinish Clear is to stop the wood from rotting which is what happens when moisture penetrates wood on a consistent basis. DiamondFinish Clear is typically used for decks and outdoor wood but KBS MAXX Clear can also be used. Just be sure you thin the first coat so it soaks in like we instructed you to do with the DiamondFinish Clear. Hopefully tha
  6. Is the wood already sealed? Wood surfaces should be smooth and dry with the wood having a low moisture content. All existing failed coatings should be removed, sand smooth and remove dust. Thin initial coat of DiamondFinish Clear 30-50% with KBS #1 Thinner and apply a single covering coat to seal the wood. Allow to cure 24 hours. The wood will generally need to be sanded smooth again as DiamondFinish Clear will tend to raise the wood grain with the first coat. Sand the surface smooth with fine grade of sand paper (280-320). Apply at least an additional full coat for general applica
  7. It is always best to do your welding right after the sandblasting and then do the KBS 3-Step Rust Prevention System on all of the weld spots and just RustSeal on the non-welded, sandblasted areas. Be sure to handle the parts with gloved hands to keep finger oils off of the surface. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  8. Yes, after 24 hours, you can wet sand a sag in DiamondFinish Clear and then cut and polish. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  9. Because RustSeal and KBS MAXX are incredibly durable coatings, there are thousands of applications for these incredible coatings. One of our customers used RustSeal and KBS MAXX to protect the lift in his garage. After prepping the surface, he applied both RustSeal and KBS MAXX with a brush and ended up with an incredible looking lift that will withstand the abuse that garage lifts have to endure!

  12. DiamondFinish Clear goes over fully cured epoxy extremely well. No issues at all. Be sure the surface is clean. DiamondFinish Clear is good to 300F and for a table that is perfect. Hot mugs will be well under that temperature. DiamondFinish Clear can be cut and polished as a normal clear coat after 24 hours under normal conditions. In your application, you would polish the DiamondFinish Clear. Please review carefully the DiamondFinish Clear Directions. If you have any additional questions, please feel to reach out to us!
  13. “1925 Essex. First, primed the frame with your Red Oxide RustSeal. Then he used your Buick Red Motor Coater for the color. Then clear coated the Motor Coater with DiamondFinish Clear.” -Melba C.
  14. With KBS Top Coater, you will apply your second coat after 8 hours so you will clean your spray gun between coats. Please be sure to check out the Complete Directions for KBS Top Coater. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
