  1. This video describes the use of KBS Coatings Undercoats to protect cars and trucks from rust. The KBS UnderCoat product line can be used to protect the undersides of a vehicle from being damaged by debris and rust, as well as act as a sound deadener to reduce noise transmitted into the vehicle. Rust often ends the life of vehicles. Road salt collected moisture and other factors can contribute to rust developing and eating away at metal. Rust not only looks bad but can be a danger. Weakening metal and making vehicles unsafe. To remain rust free, metal surfaces of the underside of the vehicle need to be separated from corrosion causing elements. Automotive undercoat provides a protective layer that keeps debris from scratching metal and possibly creating the potential for rust. Automotive undercoat also provides sound deadening properties and reduces or eliminates the sound of gravel and debris pinging off the underside of the vehicle. KBS Undercoat line provides protection for wheel wells, gas tanks, frames, and floor pans. KBS UnderCoat produces a very tough, yet flexible film with excellent adhesion, and helps prevent road salt from eating away at your car's metal and fiberglass. All KBS UnderCoats offer excellent adhesion to metal or painted surfaces and come in a matte black finish. The KBS UnderCoat product line consists of three different formulations to meet different requirements. (all products group shot). Solvent-based asphalt undercoating, solvent-based rubberized undercoating, and VOC friendly Water-Based Asphalt undercoat. Use of Solvent-Based Asphalt Undercoat is a personal preference: Some people believe Asphalt-Based is best, saying it has superior longevity. Others prefer Solvent-Based Rubberized UnderCoat. With Solvent-Based Rubberized UnderCoat, rubber is used in the formulation rather than asphalt. This type of undercoating can be painted over and has a smoother texture than asphalt based. While Asphalt-Based UnderCoat cannot. Some people feel the somewhat smoother texture is easier to clean. VOC friendly Water-Based Asphalt UnderCoat is available for professionals and for those in areas that must adhere to strict VOC requirements. Water-Based Asphalt has the same performance as Solvent-Based Asphalt but takes a little longer to cure than Solvent-Based. At KBS Coatings we are rust removal and prevention experts. KBS Coatings specializes in not only protecting metal from the initial development of rust, but has high-performance systems to remove rust, prepare the metal and then encapsulate it from harmful elements with high-quality coatings. As part of the automotive undercoat application process we first recommend properly prepping the metal surfaces and then applying KBS RustSeal. RustSeal is a rust preventative paint that chemically bonds to metal to form a flexible yet rock-hard, and non-porous barrier that will not crack, chip or peel. This will thoroughly seal metal away from moisture before undercoating is applied. This system of RustSeal and KBS UnderCoats provide ultimate protection. KBS UnderCoats are applied with a Shutz gun with a large orifice which allows you to adjust pressure and dictate the amount of texture. The quart-sized can be directly attached to the spray gun. One gallon and larger containers are available as well. KBS UnderCoats are a great way to protect the undersides of a vehicle from being damaged by debris and rust, as well as act as a sound deadener to reduce noise transmitted into the vehicle.
  2. Instead of baking KBS Top Coater, please heat cycle the parts (120F and then 70F, repeat) and that will force the solvents out and cure the KBS Top Coater completely. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  3. Yes, if you applied heavy coats, the parts could still be tacky. Please heat cycle the parts (120F and then 70F, repeat) and that will force the solvents out and cure the KBS Top Coater completely. Also, increase the air flow over the surface of the parts. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  4. RustBlast is an acid etch and like any acid etch, RustBlast can etch concrete. We have had customer actually etch the rest of their concrete with RustBlast when something like this has happened so that they have an entire area that looks the same. If you are just seeing the white zinc phosphate residue, you can get that off with a stiff brush and a hose. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  5. The KBS 3 Step Rust Prevention System of KBS Klean, RustBlast and RustSeal is ideal for restoring rusty truck frames making the frames look better than new and protecting your investment for a lifetime. Unlike other corrosion treatments, RustSeal is a stop rust paint and rust prevention that lasts. Water and air are locked out, therefore oxidation, the precursor to rust, cannot take hold on your car or truck frame. RustSeal is protection that lasts a lifetime.
  6. The key for re-coating or top coating RustSeal is feel. Because RustSeal is sensitive to temperature, humidity and air flow changes, it is best practice to go by feel versus a time frame. To re-coat or top coat RustSeal, you want your finger to drag along the surface but not pull any paint off onto your gloved finger. If you gloved finger gets paint on it, then it is too soon. If your gloved finger slides right along the surface (does not drag), then you have waited too long and should wait a full 24 hours and lightly scuff the surface with 300 grit or apply a dust coat of Fusion Self-Etch Primer. Please be sure to carefully review the Complete RustSeal Directions before you start your project. Let us know if this helps and if you have any additional questions.
  7. Over the years, utility trailers are very prone to rusting and corrosion because utility trailers are used out in the elements and then are also stored in the elements. On top of that, the powder coating that is applied by the manufacturers of the utility trailers does not last against rust and usually starts to chip off on sheets. Many of our customers have used the proven KBS Rust Prevention System to restore utility trailers preventing rust and corrosion making them last a lifetime. Below is a picture from one of our customers who restored a utility trailer over the course of a weekend. RustSeal is a superior single part, ready-to-use, rust preventive coating. RustSeal is impervious to road salts and most every chemical. RustSeal flows out to a beautiful, rock-hard, tough ceramic-like coating that is tough to chip or scratch, and will not crack or peel protecting your valuable assets like a utility trailer. BlackTop is a permanent, moisture-cured, UV stable coating primarily used for topcoating surfaces previously sealed with RustSeal or any other paint/primer application. BlackTop is a high performance protective coating specifically formulated to withstand dulling and fading caused by prolonged sunlight exposure ideal for protecing utility trailers.
  8. Tank Sealer does not stick to itself but you do have an option to apply an additional coat of Tank Sealer. 1) Clean the inside of the tank well with KBS Klean (because you did not test with water). 2) Pour Fusion Self-Etch Primer in the tank. Roll the tank around so all side are coated lightly and drain out all of the excess. Fusion should be applied as a dust coat. Never thick. 3) Let cure overnight. 4) Do the Tank Sealer Step again. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  9. “This is a sign for a retirement home that I hand-painted about 8 years ago. It had weathered badly, and the owner brought it back to see if I could re-do it. Took some work; but it came back very nicely. Then, I put the Diamond Clear on it, and that really made it POP!” Dale F. DiamondFinish Clear is a crazy tough Clear Coat that can be applied Direct To Metal or over other coatings even on wood. DiamondFinish Clear is a water clear high gloss clear coat that remains permanently flexible and is able to perform in the toughest environments without yellowing, cracking or peeling.
  10. DiamondFinish Clear was used to restore the front on my Fifth Wheel. DiamondFinish Clear is a crazy tough Clear Coat that can be applied to faded fiberglass to bring it back to life. DiamondFinish Clear is a water clear high gloss clear coat that remains permanently flexible and is able to perform in the toughest environments without yellowing, cracking or peeling.
  11. To minimize flash rust, dry the surface quickly and immediately. That is the key. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
  12. Best practice would be to wipe down the surface with KBS Klean and then apply your dust coat of Fusion Self-Etch Primer. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  13. Yes, DiamondFinish Clear is used on artwork. Are you looking for a glossy finish?
  14. Most waxy frame coatings from the manufacturer can be removed with Mineral Spirits or Acetone. After you have done that, pressure wash the frame to be sure you have gotten rid of it all. After that, do the KBS 3-Step Rust Prevention System. Hopefully that helps. If you have any other questions, please let us know.
  15. In general, KBS Klean and RustBlast diluted really well with rinse water will not harm your grass. The key is to dilute the KBS Klean and RustBlast with as much water as possible. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
