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.

Spray cans

Spray cans didn’t have have the same shine as the cans of paint. Coverage was also disappointing. For what I spent I could’ve bought a gallon and saved money. Cans of paint worked excellent and I couldn’t have been more impressed with degreaser and metal prep. I’m really hoping this paint will last like it states. Only time will tell.

POR 15

Painted rusted patio furniture with POR 15 Top Coat. Went on nice and thick. Hope it works as I'm sick of redoing every year. Looks great and Wife loves the look.

Brand new trailer

Had so many years of rust and after removing the debris lightly and treating with a rust wash and the acid treatment before giving a complete undercoat from the 6 pack and the top coat for extra durability and protection! Spent less than 200$ on POR15 to put on a 500$ trailer to get a brand new frame.

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.
