questions Dave on 02/05/2019

Hi could you advise me if this product is suitable for priming porcelain floor tiles?and if so what you recommend as a top coat/sealer?


Yes, clean thoroughly and lightly abrade before application. We would suggest finishing with Rust-Oleum 9200 Rust-O-Thane.

questions amanda on 23/04/2019

Hi Can you tell me what area of coverage will I get from one litre of the super adhesion primer please? Thanks Amanda


The theoretical coverage for Rust-Oleum 3333 Super Adhesion Primer is 41m²/litre

questions claire on 23/07/2018

I have some clay tiles (like quarry tiles but says made of clay) I have old quarry tiles cleaned and sealed but the new ones in clay don't hold the sealer. It easily comes off with bare feet or if it gets wet with washing up water etc in kitchen. Should I apply a clear primer over the top of the sealant that has just been put on for the 3rd time or which primer would you suggest? Is there a clear primer/ sealant which would stick to the tiles please and provide protection. Gloss preferably as the old quarry tiles have been gloss sealed. thanks


Our best recommendation for this would be to remove all existing coatings and try a test area with Rust-Oleum 4900 Polycoat 2K to ensure it is suitable before coating the whole area.

questions Sharon on 12/01/2017
