      Comments about Krylon Rust Tough, Zinc Rich Primer, 12 oz, Aerosol:

      Around 5 years ago I nicked the paint on the rear wheel-arch of my Audi. I hit it with a few different rust "cures", adding filler, primer and paint over the top but the repair never lasted more than a year. In the end I just used this zinc primer and the repair is sealed with no rust returning. It's now the only thing I turn to for all my vehicles and machinery.

          Comments about Krylon Rust Tough, Zinc Rich Primer, 12 oz, Aerosol:

          Sprayed on center rotor hub (not rotor friction surface) to keep from rusting and looking bad. Coverage was good and quick to apply. Coating was easy to scratch off so don't know how successful it will be in preventing rust.

          Comments about Krylon Rust Tough, Zinc Rich Primer, 12 oz, Aerosol:

          Absolutely great product for DIY! I have used it numerous times on so many vehicles and parts. Of course, its best use is on parts that have already sustained some degree of corrosion. If you are working with sparkling clean metal that have not seen rust yet, you can use another product. But this primer will help you out big if you are dealing with rust. Works every time! Primes the surface and prevents (or at least significantly slows) rust buildup.

              This stuff worked on arresting the recurring rust forming on the galvanized roof of my utility trailer- the color even closely matched. Buying more to paint/cover the rust forming on my winches fairlead... which is also unpainted grey/silver steel. I think the Zinc in this product is key.

              • Q:

                Many primers with zinc or copper additives are used as weld-through primers. Do you recommend against using this product as that type of primer?

                  I'm happy to help, Jeep-er Jon! Krylon does not have any indications that this Rust Tough, Zinc Rich Primer is suitable for weld through applications. Rust Protector™ Galvanizing Primer and Rust Tough® Prime™ Galvanizing Primer may be more suitable to your application. They are not listed on AdvanceAutoParts.com. I suggest checking with your local store for availability.
