POR-15 Rust Preventative Paint

Detailed Description

This is the POR-15 paint only. We also offer it as part of a kit, linked at the bottom of this page. . While no rust treatment is 100% effective, this is by far the best we have ever found for areas that already have some level of existing rust. There are other products that make similar claims, but this one actually works. It is widely used by restoration experts and VW enthusiasts alike. POR stands for "paint over rust," and as the name applies you do not have to completely remove all rust in order to apply it. In fact it works best on a rough surface. First clean and degrease the surface thoroughly and remove all loose rust (etch, sandblast, or wire brush). Then apply the POR-15 with a brush or spray gun. Apply primer while the POR-15 is still tacky, or paint directly over it after it dries. (It dries nearly clear.) See the package for more details. This is a very effective and inexpensive precaution that can save you from having to do the same job again. It can also be used in conjunction with Waxoyl (see below) for a very effective "1-2 punch."

If you are treating metal that does not have any rust - or want a second level of protection after applying POR-15 - use our Waxoyl Rustproofing Kit linked at the bottom of this page. It works differently from POR-15, coating your undercarriage and body cavities to prevent intrusion of water.
