Purchase this POR-15 Quart Special of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating and save over the individual prices.
Step 1: POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser (Formerly Marine Clean) removes grease, oil, dirt, and grime in one application without leaving residues, noxious fumes, or flammable solvents.
Step 2: POR-15 Metal Prep (Formerly Prep & Ready) provides the best adhesion for POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating on any metal surface, including shiny polished metal surfaces.
Step 3: POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is a high-tech, high-performance rust preventive coating designed for application directly on stable rust or seasoned metal surfaces. Provides permanent rust protection with a hammer-tough finish resistant to acids, alkalis, oils, fertilizers, and repels all fuels.
Before: Heavily rusted diamond-plate pickup truck beds can be a problem, fix them permanently with the POR-15 3-Step System.
Step 1: Clean it! Remove loose rust and degrease the surface with a water-based Cleaner Degreaser
Step 2: Prep it! Neutralize rust and etch with Metal Prep.
Step 3: Coat it! After thorough washing and drying, coat with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating, right onto the rust!
For areas exposed to U.V. light: Topcoat with Top Coat, 2K Urethane, or other paint of your choice.
After: Now you have a PERMANENTLY repaired truck bed, that won't rust again.
ASTM C-580 Flexural Strength - measures flexural strength and modulus of elasticity. 5,200 pounds per square inch
ASTM C-579 Compressive Strength - measures compressive strength, the capacity of axially directed pushing forces. 12,500 pounds per square inch - Verified. Not tested to failure.
ASTM C-307 Tensile Strength - measures the tensile strength of cured chemical-resistant materials. 3,200 pounds per square inch
ASTM D-4541 Bond Strength To Concrete - measures the strength of coatings bond to concrete. Concrete fails before POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. It far exceeds the tensile strength of concrete
ASTM C-501 Taber Abraser- abrasive wear by determination of the loss of weight resulting from abrasion. In two separate tests, POR-15 Rust Preventive had:
Weatherometer - accurate weather resistance indicator of cycling of conditions. The cycle is 30 mins sun at 135 degrees F, 30% relative humidity and 30 mins dark at 75-80 degrees F, 100% relative humidity 1,000 hours of exposure equals 5 years of simulated exposure in the Rocky Mountain region. There was no change in the 3 panels coated with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating exposed for 2,000 hours.ASTM B-117 Salt Spray - specimens are exposed at specific locations and angles. It creates a 100% relative humidity condition in the exposure zone.
Two separate B-117 tests. One with new bare steel and the other with rusted steel. Both were coated with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating.
Chemical Bath Test - After 200 hours of soaking in the following chemical bathes, panels coated with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating experienced no changes: 10% hydrochloric acid, 50% sulphuric acid, 55% chromate, 85% phosphoric acid, 10% sodium hydroxide 98% methanol.
Raw Sewage Test - A metal box that houses a filter for raw sewage in a treatment facility was coated with POR-15 Rust Preventive. After a year of service, no viable undercutting or rusting was present on the housing.
Mil-D-3134J Impact Resistance - POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating exceeds standards.
ASTM C-413 Water Absorption - method covers the determination of the absorption of chemical-resistant mortars, grouts, monolithic surfacings, and polymer concretes. 0.0001 maximum
NACE Stand TM0174 - 0.00 POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is a non-porous coating.
Temperature Resistance - POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is temperature resistant up to 450° continuously. A test showed that no adhesion was lost at 450° F for 10 hours.
The best product I have use
For best results use POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser and POR-15 Metal Prep to prepare the surface for POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating.
Step 1. Apply our POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser to a surface, keep wet 10-15 minutes then rinse thoroughly with water and allow the surface to dry. For areas with noticeable build up use a stiff brush to break up material and continue to keep wet with POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser. It is important not to allow the product to dry on the surface prior to rinsing with water. POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser is a heavy duty water soluble cleaner that may be used over metal, wood, fiberglass, vinyl and concrete.
Step 2. Apply POR-15 Metal Prep to the bare metal surface, keep wet 10-15 minutes then rinse thoroughly with water and allow the surface to dry. It is important not to allow POR-15 Metal Prep to dry on the surface prior to rinsing with water. Once dry the surface may show a flash rust or white powdery residue this is perfectly normal. POR-15 Metal Prep provides the best surface profile and greatly improves paint adhesion to any type of metal surface.
Step 3. Wearing gloves and a properly fitted respirator is recommended when applying POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. DO NOT SHAKE, open and slowly stir POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating until thoroughly mixed. It is recommended to apply two thin covering coats of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. Apply the first coat to the properly prepared substrate with the supplied brush. Apply the second coat when the first coat is almost dry, slightly tacky to the touch. If POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is applied too heavy, brush marks may result in the finish. Do not apply this product if the humidity is above 70%. If the humidity is too high POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating will surface dry too quickly which may result in small bubbles in the finish. POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating requires a top coat only if exposed to direct sunlight.
For topcoating use POR-15 Top Coat or POR-15 2K Urethane industrial topcoat. For best topcoating results, apply the top coat before POR-15 Rust Preventive coating dries. Topcoat should be applied while POR-15 Rust Preventive coating is still tacky.
To topcoat cured POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating, lightly scuff surface with sandpaper or use POR-15 Self Etch Primer to create a bonding surface for topcoating.
