Rust-Oleum Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer, 8 oz

Eliminate rust and make your next paint job simple with Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer. By instantly bonding to the rust, this product transforms it to a non-rusting, flat black surface on which you can easily put new paint. It saves you the effort of sanding rust all the way down to the bare metal. This 8-oz Rust-Oleum paint also helps by preventing future rust from forming. It works excellently on any metal surface and covers approximately 2 to 4 sq ft.

Review 1 for Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer, 8 oz

Works as advertised

I purchased this product to stop the rusting of the wheels on my car where they are exposed through gaps in the wheel covers. The wheels were originally black, and had become rust-colored, but the rust had not progressed to the point where the metal was pitted. I had hoped that the Rust Reformer would turn the rust black, both stopping more rust from forming, and eliminating the need for painting. It did react with the rust and turn it mostly black, but there was still a hint of rust color in spots, so I followed the directions and topped it with a light coat of paint after waiting 24 hours. The wheels look great now, and I don't expect them to rust again. I used a similar product on the rusted cast-iron hardware on my 1930's garage door some 20 years ago, and it has only now started to rust again. I plan to use the Rust Reformer left over from this project to touch it up so I can go another 20 years.

This is an excellent product; I have used it for years. Quick dry and water clean-up. I have used the aerosol and the this brush on, but I find the brush on is the best. Follow the directions on the container---its put on there for a reason. Top coat as directed thereon and you'll get good results.

Not too bad

Really good stuff, but if you read the instructions, you're actually supposed to wait 3 days before priming and painting. If you brush it on, expect well-defined brushmarks as part of the finish.

This product is terrible. I put this on my metal shed that has flat sheet metal. This product dried like putting Elmer's glue over rust. Results ended in a dried, uneven surface. I will never use again.
