POR-15 Products, Application & Procedures

POR-15 Products" title="POR-15 Products

POR-15® is a high-tech, high performance coating that will stop rust permanently. Unlike ordinary "paints", POR-15® is designed to be coated right onto rusty surfaces, leaving a beautiful, rock-hard finish that won't crack, chip or peel. Use it to coat a rusty frame, floor pans, farm equipment, underwater marine items or even a heavily corroded battery tray and stop rust in its tracks!

POR-15® 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.

POR-15 brings the powerful technology of polymeric isocyanate derivatives to the consumer rust prevention market for the first time, and is vastly superior to all competing products currently on the market. POR-15 is cheaper and easier to apply than epoxies since it doesn't require mixing; and POR-15 dries to a high-gloss finish like paint, except that it cannot be scraped or peeled off. Since POR-15 actually bonds to metal, the underlying surface does not have to be sanded before application. As long as loose and flaking rust are removed from the surface, an application of POR-15 will not only cover up the rust and prevent it from spreading, but will also strengthen the underlying metal and seal holes by forming its own membranes.

Product Description: POR-15 is a rust-preventive paint designed for application directly on rusted or seasoned metal surfaces. It dries to a rock hard and it prevents rust from reoccurring by protecting metal from further exposure to moisture. POR-15 is sensitive to UV light(sun) and must be top coated before prolonged exposure to sunlight. POR-15 is cured and strengthened by exposure to moisture and will dry faster under extreme humidity, but moderate to dry atmospheric conditions are most desirable when applying this product. That's because extreme humidity may cause an immediate surface cure, trapping carbon dioxide gas below the surface. When this happens, bubbling may occur. Extreme humidity at the time of application may also interfere with proper adhesion of the POR-15 coating to metal because it's almost impossible to keep metal dry under such conditions.

Application Procedures: Surface preparation: Rusted surfaces are best; seasoned metal and sandblasted surfaces are also good. To coat smooth metal surfaces: use POR-15 PREP-READY to prepare surface before painting. The surface must be dry and free of grease, oil, or other foreign substances. Use of "rust converter" products is not recommended as they may affect bonding of POR-15 to metal. POR-15 likes to adhere to surfaces with "tooth" rather than smooth glossy surfaces. Stir or roll (can) Contents thoroughly before painting. Do not shake (causes bubbling) . Refrigerate unused portion of POR-15 for longer shelf life. Apply in thin coats, l to 2 mil thickness. Minimum 2 coats. Apply second coat when first coat is dry but with slight finger-drag remaining, usually 4-5 hours. Spray Application: Use 30-35 lbs pressure for normal gloss. Reduce pressure for lower gloss (20-25 lbs). Thin only with POR-15 Solvent, if necessary. To topcoat a fully cured POR-15 surface, scuff with 320 grit (minimum grit) or use brown Scotchbrite pad (Scotchbrite pad is preferred because it dulls finish without removing paint like sandpaper does) until gloss is dull; then paint, or use POR-15 High Build Primer directly on the cured POR-15 surface, then topcoat as desired. NOTE: Never topcoat a POR-15 surface that hasn't cured, as this will ruin the coat already down. Use POR-15 Solvent or lacquer thinner for cleanup, which must be done before POR-15 dries.

NOTE: Organic vapor particulate respirators, NIOSH/MSHA approved, must be used when spraying POR-15. Moisture will shorten the life of unused POR-15. Seal can or jar immediately after using.

4 Step Rust Stopping System
Stop Rust Permanently! For the best results, follow all 4 STEPS of POR-15 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.

  • Cleaner Degreaser - Step 1 - Quart - ORM-D
    POR-15® Cleaner Degreaser cleans and degreases in one application without leaving residues, noxious fumes or flammable solvents. No other cleaner works as fast or as well. It makes petroleum-based cleaners almost obsolete because POR-15® Cleaner Degreaser can be diluted with water up to 3, 4, 5 and even 10 times its volume while remaining more potent than other cleaners. POR-15® Cleaner Degreaser removes grease, oil, mildew, algae, musty odors, soap films, wax. Use it to clean canvas, vinyl, nylon, holding tanks, grease traps, auto parts and more. Adhesion is important with most paints but has to be perfect for POR-15 to achieve its maximum effectiveness. A solvent wipe before painting didn't work with POR-15; in the lab we found it did more harm than good by leaving a residue that didn't help with adhesion or appearance. We had to come up with a substance that would clean metal without leaving a residue. What we developed, POR-15® Cleaner Degreaser, contradicts all accepted theories about metal prep products: its water-based, not solvent-based and it cleans without leaving residues. In laboratory adhesion tests, our POR-15® Rust Preventive coating using POR-15® Cleaner Degreaser first to clean the bare metal far exceeded every other prep product we found in the marketplace.

    Metal Prep - Quart - Step 2 - Quart - ORM-D
    POR-15® Metal Prep provides the best adhesion for POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating on any metal surface, including aluminum and shiny polished metal surfaces. Our simple process gently etches metal, creating an ideal anchor pattern for coatings such as POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating, while simultaneously leaving a zinc phosphate coating to insure chemical bonding of paint and steel. Avoid other preps that may leave harmful residues which prevent proper adhesion. After thoroughly degreasing your work piece, apply environmentally safe POR-15 Metal Prep to both neutralize any rust and etch any clean bare metal. This will allow better adhesion of POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating or any other coating. POR-15® Metal Prep is not caustic, corrosive, toxic or flammable.

    POR-15® Metal Prep Features:

    Interesting Facts you should know about steel and prepping it before you coat it with POR-15: In every car manufacturing facility, steel in different parts of the car body often comes from different steel mills and different production lots, and the surface texture varies with the condition of the steel mill rolls which cold roll the steel to its final thickness. Also, surface cleanliness varies with the mills cleaning procedures, especially the procedures used to control carbon smut is actually baked onto the steel during the high temperature annealing process which follows rolling. This carbon smut is impossible to remove except by mechanical abrasion. Rust varies with the care taken in handling (1) at the steel mill, (2) during transportation and storage, and (3) during fabrication. Steel stored for a long time with rust inhibiting oil will react to form an incomplete oxide known as oil stain. The result of all this is that ordinary steel varies widely in the manner in which it accepts coatings. Although some commercial steel provides an excellent surface for coatings, you are just as likely to find steel which gives poor adhesion and poor rust resistance, even with good coatings. Often the same mill will produce both very good and very poor surface quality, depending upon a number of uncontrolled factors. Nearly all the above problems can be overcome by using POR-15® Metal Prep before you coat your steel. POR-15® Metal Prep is an inexpensive insurance policy that guarantees perfect adhesion of POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating to any metallic surface every time. Whether you paint your car or your fence or your outdoor furniture, the problems are always the same, because you dont know anything about the steel youre painting or what mill it came from, and you cant learn anything by just looking at it even if you have perfect vision!

    POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating, Step 3
    POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating is a high performance coating designed for application directly on rusted or seasoned metal surfaces. POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating is non-porous and seals and protects many surfaces from water, chemicals, salt, and other corrosive contaminants. POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating is an effective anti-corrosive and rust preventive coating that offers superior chemical resistance due to its dense, cross-linked molecular composition and non-porous attributes.

    The secret lies in POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating's curing process. Most paints dry through evaporation, but POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating dries faster when moisture is present. It has the opposite chemistry of ordinary paints. Now add to that POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating incredible hardness, toughness, and flexibility and you have a coating that is practically indestructible. POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating is great for auto restoration, and protecting valuable equipment against rust and corrosion. You'll be amazed at the toughness!

    POR-15 Top Coat - Chassis Black - Quart - ORM-D
    POR-15® Top Coat is a direct-to-metal coating designed to work incredibly well in all applications where there is a need to preserve substrates susceptible to corrosion. Under exposure to sunlight and weather POR-15® Top Coat has exceptional long-term gloss and color retention. POR-15® Top Coat can be applied directly to metal substrates, with no need for a primer or undercoat, and is formulated to form a robust barrier that sheds moisture to provide long lasting protection. POR-15® Top Coat has excellent adhesion and when used over POR-15® RUST PREVENTIVE COATING the products create a system that works to provide a permanent barrier to corrosion.
