Pettit 6980 Rustlok Steel Primer is a one package moisture cured polyurethane coating designed for application over any steel or cast iron surface, including galvanized and stainless steel. Rustlok Steel Primer contains aluminum flake pigment which forms a dense, water impervious barrier. The result is excellent corrosion protection. In addition, Rustloks polyurethane chemistry offers tremendous adhesive strength and wetting ability. It is this combination that allows Rustlok to perform well even when applied over rusted surfaces. Rustlok Steel Primer is recommended anytime an easy to apply, effective anti-corrosive barrier coat is desired.

Applied by brush, roller or spray at temperatures ranging from 10° to 100°F. 1 hour dry time between the recommended two coats; 2 hours before recoating with another paint. Approx. gallon coverage: 500 sq. ft.

Applied to boat trailer parts
by Brian from Fleming Island, Florida on September 13, 2016
Great coverage and hardended as I hoped. I used a criss-cross pattern during application. I shook and stirred to get the settled flakes from the bottom to mix better. Need time to ensure desired corrosion prevention occurs. Four stars so far. Five stars if it noticeably extends the life of the coated items.
Was this review helpful?
Does the surface to be painted have to be down to metal before application? Can you paint over previously painted surfaces.?
Manufacturer confirms it will need to go down to the metal. This is not good to be an overcoat with paint. You could get some blistering.
