POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is a high performance coating designed to paint directly on prepped rusted or seasoned metal surfaces to stop rust permanently. POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is non-porous and seals and protects many surfaces from water, chemicals, salt, and other corrosive contaminants. Also, thisPOR-15® rust inhibitor is able to be painted over rust.This anti-rust coating paint 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. This rust inhibitive paint 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 a permanent rust repair great for auto frame and chassis restoration, protecting valuable equipment against rust and corrosion. Black and Gray Rust Preventive Coatings are non-conductive and good for EV conversion applications. Use POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser and POR-15 Metal Prep to properly get your surface ready for the POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. You'll be amazed at the toughness!
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 top coat of your choice.
After: Now you have a PERMANENTLY repaired truck bed, that will NOT rust again.
Farm, industrial, marine commercial, and construction industries all use POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating to protect expensive and valuable equipment against rust, abrasion, and even graffiti. POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating also has excellent “surface tolerance”, which means it works very well on porous surfaces, such as wood, fiberglass, concrete, and bricks. A topcoat is required if exposed to UV light. Try some for yourself!
“POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is impervious to just about anything short of an atom bomb!”

Rust Preventive Coating
Used it to refinish a motorcycle sidecar frame. Worked great. Very pleased with the results.
Very happy with the result of this POR-15
Great product, works well and does its job.
Metal that is media blasted provides the best surface for coatings. If not possible, remove all built-up dirt, loose rust, and paint. Note that if you leave old paint behind, the rust preventive can only adhere as strongly as the paint it is applied over. This generally is not as strong as applying to prepped and scuffed-up bare metal.
These products should only be handled when wearing latex gloves, eye protection, and NOSHA approved respirator. Always work in a well-ventilated area.
Step 1. Apply our POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser to a surface, agitate the surface with a scuff pad or brush and keep wet 10-15 minutes then rinse thoroughly with water and allow the surface to dry. Repeat if surface is still oily or greasy. 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 for opaque paints and coatings.
Step 3. Wearing gloves and a properly fitted NOSHA approved respirator is recommended when applying POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. Do Not shake. Mix by stirring until all solids at the bottom of the can are dissolved. Mixing may be done with a drill mixer on slow or by hand. 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 a brush, roller, or HVLP (proper PPE required). Apply the second coat when the first coat is dry but still 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 an opaque topcoat only if exposed to direct sunlight. Best chemical adhesion to POR-15 Rust Preventive is when it is dry but still tacky (it has a finger drag). If the rust preventive is already completely dried or cured, you must scuff the surface with a maroon pad or 320-380 grit sandpaper for mechanical adhesion of a topcoat.
If your project will be exposed to U.V. light, topcoat it with POR-15 TopCoat, Engine Enamel, Caliper Paint, Detail Paint, or 2K Urethane industrial topcoat. You can topcoat with most other UV safe opaque paint as well.
