A few things can affect your painted Rustoleum paint. The main culprit is rust. We are working to make paint less prone to rust. So far, we are seeing significant improvement here, especially here in the Northern Hemisphere. We should be back to full strength and wear patterns in the next few weeks. You should be seeing results sooner, and your Rustoleum paint should look very similar to it’s standard condition.
You can also have paint come off the paint with little or no effort. Sometimes the paint will come off with mild cleaning solutions before you even apply the Rustoleum. We recommend letting it relax for 10-15 minutes before you apply the Rustoleum. If it’s already getting on the top of the paint, you may want to just clean off the rust with mild cleaning solution, like baking soda. If it’s still stuck, it usually re-appears in less than an hour as the Rustoleum itself is actually very forgiving.
If you see significant streaks, check for any other rust treatment you may have. We use a combination of an anti-rust treatment and WD-40 all over the Rustoleum paint – you’ve been warned! If the paint has a stain that’s not completely rusted out, add more WD-40 to the rust-free paint and let it soak.
Rust is a very common problem on paint and can be dangerous if not treated properly. Be sure that the paint is clean before you apply the Rustoleum, and make sure you take care to leave the Rustoleum in its original location. This way you aren’t putting it on with anything that might have moved or damaged it during use.
Rust leaves a residue that can be removed with Rustoleum by simply blotting it off. You don’t need to remove any Rustoleum first. We recommend using a water based rust inhibitor like Gluconol. Follow the instructions on your bottle, or if not found, soak it overnight in a solution of rubbing alcohol and a small amount of dishwashing liquid. After you make sure that it’s completely rusted out, rub the stain for 10 minutes on a soft cloth to remove it.
After washing off any rust on your project, let the Rustoleum cure overnight before use. If your Rustoleum has a special treatment that allows it to stick on so long, you can let it cure without the treatment. If it hasn’t, you may want to let it cure for a few more
