Re: Quickie POR 15 Question

I want to do a frame with this stuff and have not used it before . Can you go right over the surface rust with this stuff , I mean with the flakey stuff brushed off first ?
Is it a shiny finish or dull ? Are most of you spraying or brushing it on ? I do know its UV sensitive but I think a frame you could get away with not top coating it ? Thanks !!

Re: Quickie POR 15 Question

I got most of the flakey stuff off of my frame, then used POR-15's 3 step process, which is the Marine Clean, then Metal Ready, then POR-15. I then topcoated it with some black rattle can paint. That was a couple years ago and it is holding up nicely.
POR stands for Paint Over Rust, by the way.
And now that I think about it, I think they offer a Silver POR-15 too that is slightly thicker.

Re: Quickie POR 15 Question

POR has a pretty good web site. It seems the stuff comes in all colors, with a number of different applications. Check out their web site
http://www.por-15.com/
I am picking up my 2 quarts of semi-gloss black tomorrow. I can let you know what the process of application is like if you're interested.

Re: Quickie POR 15 Question

Having just spent alot of time doing mine One thing I can strongly suggest is... they say to wait until it tacks up to where you leave a finger print in the POR15 before adding the chassis black top coat.

Add it a little before they suggest and it will have a smoother finish (they will flow out together) which IMO smoother means it will clean easier.
