Sorry, never heard of the stuff.

Seriously though, I wish I'd never heard of it. I'm not a POR 15 fan. There have been a number of threads on the subject recently and I'm kind of over it to be honest.

The fact that whatever it is you are trying to do involves so much of it that you are concerned about the cost already sounds warning bells to me.

What are you wanting to do with it?

Be warned though, you will get a lot of strong reactions on this subject, I can get kind of heated sometimes about it myself.

If you do decide to buy some, don't get it in anything but pints, no matter how much you plan to use. Once opened, shelf life is measured in days.

Just get a spray bomb or two of rustoleum rusty metal primer. They have it for heavy rust and light rust. It will work just fine for that purpose.

If you cant' find a pint then get a quart. Don't open it by the lid.
Drill a hole in top of can and pour it out that way. Take a self tapping scew and put it in the hole when finished. Place duct tape over the screw. I open my can in May of 2004 and used it just last week for a little job and it's still good. As far as mixing it up, just move the can around like you do with a glass of wine.

Found one! Just dawned on me I have been using a POR15 knockoff for years called Hammerite Rust Cap paint. Here is their web site.

I painted the gas tank on my truck with silver Rust Cap.


I got it at Home Depot for not much more than regular enamel. They call this stuff enamel but it doesn't act like normal enamel. It is more the consistency of POR15 or auto paint, smells nothing like enamel, more like auto paint and cures rock hard like POR15, not soft and gummy like enamel. Directions for use are identical to POR15 - best surface to paint with it is a rusty one - worst one is a slick clean surface. Best part is it cleans up like enamel an doesn't permanently stain your skin like the urethane products!
