Rust-Oleum Enamel Spray Paint
« on: October 08, 2020, 10:47:49 PM »

Hi.


Has anyone used this spray paint, in particular their ,"Painters Touch Multi Purpose" range.
I'm looking for Old English White and they have a very close match at a good price.
The ral code WT3 can be had but not in Enamel as far as I know and very expensive.


Is the Rust-Oleum any good ?

Rustoleum is the best there is. Read and follow the directions. Painted a real fishing boat engine (lobster boat) in 1956. 40 years later it looked good as new. Iíve been using it recently on my steam launch plant and itís superb.

That is absolutely 3 yes's from me..... :-)) :-)) :-))


I believe the product as marketed in OZ is imported in those 50,000 US Lbs containerised spherically ended cylindrical prism type things, then drip fed into spray cans & gassed in Sydney.......the rear of the can says....made in USA

The only qualification naturally is if it were a high heat application, then the VHT product is a more suitable product [but without the color range]
