Stop Rust Permanently with POR-15
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.
