4 Step Rust Stopping System
RestoMotive Laboratories restoration products are designed to work as a complete system. When used together, these products provide you with a coating that will not only stop rust, but will prevent it from returning. To aid you in your particular rusty metal project, we have included the following steps to explain the various stages in rust prevention. All RestoMotive Laboratories products are available individually and many are available in efficient, cost saving kits geared to your specific restoration need. Here is how the system works.
STEP 1... Degrease and Clean Surface …Clean the rusty metal surface with MARINE-CLEAN NOW CALLED CLEANER DEGREASER - Industrial Strenght Cleaner / Degreaser. An environmentally safe cleaner, MARIN CLEAN will remove dirt, grease, wax or other contaminants that could interfere with the restoration.
STEP 2... Neutralize Rust; Etch Metal?Prepare the rusty metal surface with PREP-READY NOW CALLED METAL PREP. As a rust remover, PREP-READY will neutralize rust, etch metal for better adhesion, and coat the metal with zinc phosphate to encourage deep chemical bonding of POR-15 to the base metal and rust.
STEP 3... Apply Rust Preventive Coating To Surface?Seal the rusty metal with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. As the moisture resistant POR-15 bonds to the rusty metal, it will form an unbelievably tough, almost ceramic-like finish that will not crack, chip or peel.
STEP 4, Option "A"... Topcoat The Surface?Topcoat the metal surface with CHASSIS COAT BLACK. The semi-gloss black CHASSIS COAT BLACK provides the frame, chassis and underbody finish desired by most restorers as it protects the underlying POR-15 from harmful UV light.
STEP 4, Option "B"... Now, prime and paint right over cured POR-15?with our new High Build Primer.After thousands of requests from customers, POR-15?chemists developed this very special 'interlocking' primer for painting over top of POR-15?with any type or color of paint you choose, without any need to rough up or de-gloss the surface.
High Build Primer is a tough-yet-sandable single-component polyurethane primer, with special adhesion characteristics that make it perfect for most painted surfaces... Especially POR-15? And, it is highly resistant to penetrating topcoats, like lacquers, enamels, and two-component finishes. It sands very smoothly, too. Try some on your next project!
Sorry, but CCOT cannot ship POR-15 or Zero-Rust products to Alaska, Canada, Hawaii or Puerto Rico.
