  1. This is a great question. Thanks for asking! When you put down 2 coats (recommended) of RustSeal on a prepped surface, you will end up with 5 mils of dry film thickness. Do you have 5 mils of clearance when the pieces of the hinge close? if you do, RustSeal would be an excellent choice for sealing up this surface. When you coat it, wait at least 24-48 hours before you operate the hinge to make sure the RustSeal is fully cured. Please let us know if this helps and if you have any additional questions.
  2. After the Motor Coater has cured for at least 7 days, you can clear coat over Motor Coater with DiamondFinish Clear. Always apply the DiamondFinish Clear in thin coats. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  3. 1) Yes, a RustSeal gallon typically covers 200 sq ft with 2 coat coverage. Yes, for 150 sq ft and 4 coats, 1.5 gallons should be the correct amount. 2) Yes, lay down the BackBone Mesh in the first coat of RustSeal and then apply additional coats of RustSeal over it using the correct time frame between coats. 3) A low nap foam roller is best. Thin RustSeal 10% with KBS #1 Thinner when rolling. 4) Yes, you can walk on the previous coat of RustSeal with painters booties. That is no problem at all. People do large concrete floors all of the time and do exactly this. 5) Yes, that should be fine. Please make sure the surface is bone dry before applying RustSeal.

  4. That sounds like Kreem. You can use MEK to take that out. Your local hardware store should have that. If not, check your local paint store. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  5. For the next month, KBS Strip does contain Methylene Chloride. After that, KBS Strip will be reformulated and will not contain Methylene Chloride because of the new EPA regulations. What color is the liner that is in the tank now?
  6. KBS Klean is the key. Use it very well: Do a great job cleaning with the KBS Klean. If you do that and then skip the RustBlast, you will be fine to put down the Motor Coater once the surface is bone dry. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  7. RustSeal Re-coating should be done once the first or consecutive coat is dry-to-touch and does not leave a fingerprint. Your Success is Extremely Important To Us!

  8. In general, for the very coarse threads of the filler neck, RustSeal should great for this application. 2 coats of RustSeal is roughly 5 mils thick and there should be enough tolerance in the coarse threads that the cap will still tighten nicely on the filler neck. Please note: Prep the tank and threads with KBS Klean and RustBlast before applying the RustSeal. This allows for maximum adhesion and durability. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  9. Going forward, please use KBS Klean when you need to clean it, KBS Klean is a powerful water based cleaner degreaser that does not leave residues. KBS Klean always works better than alcohol or solvent based cleaners. It seems like you did everything correct so the logical explanation is that the XTC coats were simply applied too heavy. XTC always performs best when it is applied in thin coats. You can apply as many coats as you desire (1 hour between coats for XTC Aerosol) but always thin coats. Please do thin coats and report back to us. We certainly believe you will get much better results.
  10. Questions: 1) Why did you rub the surface down with denatured alcohol? This is not in our directions so we are trying to understand why that was done. 2) How many hours did you wait between coats of XTC? 3) How many hours did you want before the heat cure? 4) Did you use XTC Aerosol of the non-aerosol version? 5) Did you apply normal coats of XTC or thin coats? 6) What temperature did you perform the heat cure at? 7) How long did you do the heat cure? We are looking forward to your replies and assisting you further.
  11. OK. For a rubber coating (flat and not glossy), clean well with KBS Klean and then apply RustSeal in thin coats and 3-6 hours between coats depending on temperature and humidity. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  12. It is always best practice to remove the old paint so RustSeal can go down on a prepped bare surface. That said, if the factory coating (meaning not a waxy film) is still adhered really well, you can scuff up the previous coating with 300 grit, clean the surface with KBS Klean and then apply RustSeal over that.

  13. For XTC Primer Aerosol and XTC Aerosol, we recommend waiting an hour between coats and always apply thin coats. These 2 recommendations will help tremendously when it comes to the paint getting incredible adhesion. For oven temperature curing, we usually put some aluminum foil down over the rack and then put the piece on the aluminum foil. Then turn the oven on to 350F. Once the oven gets to temperature, start your timer. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  14. BlackTop will take longer to cure with really low humidity but BlackTop will cure. It is best to apply BlackTop with the temperature is 55-82F and never in direct sunlight. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  15. The Cavity Coater could burn with the heat from welding, so it would be best to put Cavity Coater in through vent holes and then do the minimal welding after that. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  16. Most people doing trucks like this do not worry about a top coat unless the truck is a show truck (being displayed). Grab the Large Frame Coater Kit. This Kit has everything you need to clean, etch and coat the underside of the F-250. Please let us know if we have answered your questions and if you have any additional questions.
  17. The Large Frame Coater Kit includes a gallon of RustBlast. The KBS #1 Thinner can be used to thin RustSeal if you are spraying RustSeal or can also be used for clean up. Some of the other kits include a top coat. Will the frame be exposed to sunlight?
  18. For the entire underside of an F-250, grab the Large Frame Coater Kit. This Kit has everything you need to clean, etch and coat the underside of the F-250.

  19. Yes, DiamondFinish Clear will adhere very well to blued steel. Metals should be freshly polished or sanded to the finish required. For ferrous metals, clean with KBS Klean at a dilution rate of 10 parts hot water to 1 part KBS Klean (10% strength) with the use of a soft non-abrasive cleaning pad. Rinse the KBS Klean solution immediately making sure you do not let it sit on the surface and dry in a way that minimizes any water stains. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  20. Yes, you can use RustBlast and Rust Converter together. Here are the steps: Clean the surface really well with KBS Klean. Etch the surface well with RustBlast. Then apply the Rust Converter which will leave a nice primed surface. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  21. You have a few options. You can use DiamondFinish Clear Aerosol which comes in a Matte Finish. Remember that it takes 6 coats of aerosol to equal 1 coat out of a can. If you want to use DiamondFinish Clear, you can apply your coats of DiamondFinish Clear (always thin) and then wait 24 hours and scuff the surface gently with steel wool to get the desired matte sheen. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  22. RustBlast sprayed onto fully cured RustSeal will not harm the RustSeal and any residue will wash off with plain water. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  23. RustBlast leaves behind a light zinc phosphate coating (dust) which is white in color. If it is humid, the surface can product some flash rust. That flash rust (which is light brown) mixes with the zinc phosphate (which is white) and produces what looks like a lot of flash rust when it is in reality a small amount of flash rust mixed with the zinc phosphate which aids in the adhesion of the Tank Sealer. As long as you did indeed rinse the RustBlast with water and the surface is now 100% bone dry, you are set to proceed to the Tank Sealer Step. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  24. We recommend you always use the products within 2 years for best results. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
