High-performance Top Coat Paint

POR-15 Top Coat DTM paint (formerly FlexCote, BlackCote) is a direct-to-metal UV Resistant coating designed to work on prepped bare metal and work incredibly well in all applications where there is a need to help preserve substrates susceptible to corrosion. POR-15 Top Coat safety colors comply with OSHA required/recommended color codes for marking physical hazards and designating caution, to include protective equipment.

Under exterior UV exposure, POR-15 Top Coat has exceptional long-term sheen and color retention. POR-15 Top Coat can be applied directly to metal substrates or previously painted surfaces, 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 provides excellent adhesion and when used over POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating, works to provide a permanent barrier to corrosion.

Forest Gumps Vintage Snapper

I painted my vintage Snapper that I use for my lawn with POR-15’s safety red. I understand the UV concerns, but man it went on awesome and looks amazing. All my neighbors love it. I'm also going to use it for Halloween and call myself Donald Gump.

Very nice finish!

Used Top Coat finish over two coats of POR 15 on my utility trailer and this made it feel like glass. This goes a very long way over the POR 15 rust prevention coating. Highly recommend these products to anyone wanting a long use prevention paint. Don’t buy cheap…you’ll regret it.

Not only does it work great but the finish is unmatched. Just make sure not to spill it

Surface Preparation: 

All surfaces must be clean and free of all dirt, loose rust, oil, grease, wax, soap, loose paint and any other matter. 

Previously Painted Areas: Scuff surface with 320 grit sand paper. Use POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser and POR-15 Metal Prep. Let surface dry thoroughly. 

Bare Steel or Aluminum: Clean and prep surface then let dry thoroughly. For ultimate protection apply POR-15 RustPreventive Coating after surface preparation and then apply POR-15 Top Coat.

Application: Stir POR-15 Top Coat before and during use, DO NOT SHAKE. Using a pouring spout, dispense a portion into a separate container and seal can at once, keeping lid and grooves clean. Do not paint out of can. Apply POR-15 Top Coat in two thin covering coats. Spray: Use 25-30 lbs (170Kpa-210pa) pressure for normal gloss.

Roller: Use all-purpose short nap phenolic core roller.

Dry time: It cures to touch in 30-60 minutes. Second coat can be applied in 2-72 hours, depending on ambient temperature and humidity. POR-15 Top Coat can take 3-4 days to reach maximum hardness, and longer in temperatures below 55°F (15°C).

Cleanup: Do not put leftover paint back into can. Clean all equipment immediately after use with POR-15 Solvent. Flush out all fluid lines and carefully clean pressure pots. Use clean solvent only. It is also good practice to periodically clean the spray tip or the fluid tip / air cap combination during the course of the working day.
