Color is off

Comments about Duplicolor Engine Enamel, Cast Coat Iron, 12 oz. Aerosol:

The paint is great, but the color comes out completely different from the can/cap. It has gold/green undertones. I will have to repaint with another color.

    Comments about Duplicolor Engine Enamel, Cast Coat Iron, 12 oz. Aerosol:

    Great product!!

    While the shade may be similar to cast iron, this stuff is more like a metallic carbon gray. It still looks very nice, but a different product might be better if you're looking for a more authentic cast iron look. This tends to have a lot of metallic flake that gives it a sort of fake "sparkle" look vs. the authentic cast iron paint that may be available in more specialty automotive places. Nonetheless, I'm still happy with the color.

    Either I've learned to use it better, or Duplicolor changed their nozzle design. This paint sprayed much better than previous paints I've had from Duplicolor. I was worried about this after I told myself I would never buy this brand again, but I guess they've managed to redeem themselves.

    The paint dries to a very durable and solid finish that feels like it will last and hold up in tough applications. I used it on some snowblower engine parts. Feels like a much higher quality enamel compared to other brands of regular paint. I applied multiple coats, thicker than recommended to fill the rough look on a piece of heavily rusted metal. Despite applying it rather thick, there was no cracking or bubbling in my application and I didn't have any problems with drips. It does stay a bit soft for a little while, but hardens up as days go by and it fully cures. It doesn't stay as soft as Rustoleum engine paint tend to stay as they cure, which I was also using at the same time.

    My only flaw was my own fault through user error. I used some thick coats of Rustoleum Rusty Metal Primer prior to this product on a part that won't get extremely hot. The product compatibility seems fine except I didn't wait for the primer to dry 100% and all the solvents to evaporate, thus there were some tiny pinholes in the finish coat from the solvent offgassing. Subsequent finish coats helped fill this in, and lightly sanding the problem spots would probably yield a 100% perfect result. This was completely my fault.

    All in all, this is a fantastic product, very user friendly, quality finish, that I'm very happy with. Next I'm going to try the Cast Coat Aluminum enamel.

    To the person using this for exhaust applications - my research has shown that very few paints will hold up under such high-heat applications. Especially close to the engine and on the exhaust manifold. You need a very high temperature paint, even one that may perhaps need to be baked-on. This one is only rated for 500 degrees. Even higher temp paints rated in the thousands don't always last, especially on exhaust manifolds.

      Comments about Duplicolor Engine Enamel, Cast Coat Iron, 12 oz. Aerosol:

      The color on the cap is not the color it turns. I used this on my exhaust with 1000˚ primer. As soon as I turned on the car the paint (that was dried properly) started blistering. Eventually, the top coat of paint chipped off and what was left was a rusted, pink look. I liked the color it sprayed on. It was a metallic, dark green color like on the cap. I measured my exhaust, it stays below 500˚ so this paint should have withstood it.

          This is my most-used engine related paint for accessories etc. Natural cast iron color really looks great. I always use the self-etching green primer for a basecoat before using the cast coat. It's held up well for me.
