Dupont Nasson Chassis Black

Does Dupont Nasson 422-05 Chassis Black require a primer over a freshly sandblasted frame?

Thanks in advance
Ray

Yes it does.

Data sheet says substrates are OEM finishes or primed metal.

What else is out there? I've did a search here and found many different ways of painting mentioned by some of the forum members, but the discussion just jumps around too much from one brand to another.

My original idea was to powdercoat the frame, but my powder coater will not do it as the inside of my 96 Impala SS frame is treated with this "black waxy" stuff and it's almost impossible to remove without having the frame dipped. He says, when the frame is brought up to tempatature the wax will melt and ruin the coating. I just cannot find a place here in VA/DC/MD area that can dip the frame.

FYI, my frame is completely sandblasted minus the inside of the frame rails.

Thanks
Ray

I would epoxy prime it and topcoat with single stage urethane. Pick a brand, any brand.

Actually, It works better over clean bare metal. I've sprayed gallons of it and used no primer for a lot of different projects with excellent results. It's really designed for abuse and main reason it's SO thin so's to spray into tight areas regular paints won't.
You let this paint dry properly,as it is an enamel,and it will hang with the best.
Really comes down to how "important" the project finish is and what you expect.

The most durable paint that I've found for frames and that can be applied directly on bare metal is POR-15

Standard POR-15 or POR-15 CHASSISCOAT BLACKô?

On another project I tried the standard POR-15 on a non-rusted part and it flaked off after time. I guess it needs the "rust" to get a good bite in the substrate. No experience with the chassis stuff, but would like to here some experience if anyone on this forum has tried it.

I have used both the Nason chassis black. IMO fairly durable. I have also used alot of POR chassis black paint and really like it. I would still bet that epoxy with a single stage urethane would be more durable.

Check out Masterseries Primer and Chassis Coating... www.masterseriesct.com

Currently doing my 64 Volkswagen project. This stuff is great! I was going to go with POR-15 but had heard way too many bad experiences.

2 coats of the silver primer and one coat of the chassis black and you are good to go. You can even roll it on with a foam roller or a foam brush and it will self level leaving no streaks. Price is fantastic as well! Good Luck

From their website...

Two coats of the MasterSeries Permanent Rust Sealer Primer and one coat of AG 111 will withstand 14,000 hours of salt spray! AG 111 is also one of the most powerful anti-chemical coating systems available. AG 111 will withstand 90 days immersion in acetone.

Im not a fan of POR15. I have used the chassis coat and Im not impressed with the surface finish or durability. I would follow the members that say lay a coat of epoxy primer then a single stage urethane.

POR = Paint Over Rust! Probably not the best choice for a freshly sandblasted chassis.

From what I hear it needs the rust to grab onto or it'll peal.

I hear MasterSeries is good stuff for the price. I've heard the same from the VW guys whom have their share of rust problems, they say POR-15 isn't great on clean surfaces.
