CombiColor Paint from Rust-Oleum

Rust-Oleum CombiColor is a primer and topcoat in one for interior and exterior use on bare metal, manually de-rusted metal, surfaces primed with Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion, or previously painted surfaces. Rust-Oleum CombiColor has excellent opacity (hiding power) and sag resistance leaving no brush or roller strokes and provides good drying properties even at low temperatures.

Rust-Oleum CombiColor is a one coat maintenance system for metal, providing superior metal protection, even when applied direct to rust. It remains flexible and does not become brittle or flake with movement. Rust-Oleum CombiColor is intended for brush and roller application and can also be applied by air spray.

Going to sand blast a piece of agricultural machinery mild steel it will be exposed to fertilisers! What paint is best? Kongskilde red! Not sure on ral number?

Edward from ipswich (GB) - 26/11/17


After blasting we would recommend applying Teamac Rapidry HB Zinc Phosphate Primer followed by Teamac Metalcote Plant Enamel. Unfortunately we have no reference of 'Kongskilde Red' so you would have to either choose the nearest RAL or BS colour or send us a sample to match.

I want to be sure Combi-colour paint will be OK to use on pre-painted and rubbed down aluminium patent glazing. While rubbing down, some areas are back to the bare surface. Will the primer/paint combined be enough? Can you advise me please before I start!

Terry Robson from Richmond on Thames (UK) - 22/08/17

Soundly adhered, well prepared previously painted areas can have the CombiColor applied directly. Any bare areas of aluminium must be first primed with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.

can this be applied to aged powder coated garage doors, in a one coat application ?thanks wayne


On powdercoat we normally recommend cleaning and first priming with 1 coat of Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.

I have been told by somebody who has used this paint, that it can be applied to PVC window frames. He used it for this purpose approx 1 year ago and so far so good. Do you know if it will be suitable for this application? I know you do a 2 in 1 plastic paint but don't do the colour I want in that range. Thanks

Anthony McGuinness from Preston (UK) - 01/08/17

If you want to apply the CombiColor original to PVC you would need to first prime with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.

Hi... Is CombiColor suitable for painting wood? I've a front door I want to paint and CombiColor is available in the RAL colour I want. If it's OK, will it give a high gloss finish? What should I use as an undercoat? Thanks

John Blanning from Canterbury (UK) - 29/07/17

No, instead we would recommend you prime the wood with Zinsser Cover Stain followed by Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Gloss.

Hi there, I am on your website and looking to purchase Combi-COlour metal paint. It says available in many colours and I selected RAL 7016 in Matt 750mm and I am unable to add it to the basket. Is it available please? many thanks, David

David Wilson from Surrey (UK) - 25/06/17

The RAL and BS colours available in CombiColor are only available in Satin or Gloss finishes and in 1L or 2.5L sizes. If you require a matt finish in a RAL or BS colour, Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Matt may be suitable for your requirements.

Hi there, would the combicolour be suitable for repainting a van with a roller? It will be post bodywork so there will be patches of filler etc. Would you recommend using the anti-rust primer first? Also is it worth clear coating after the colour and if so which product would be best? Many thanks

Tallulah from Truro (UK) - 23/05/17

Although it is not what Rust-Oleum CombiColor was primarily designed for it is used for this type of application regularly. You will find numerous videos on YouTube of people doing similar projects by brush and roller. On bare ferrous metals Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion is always recommended to be used before application of the CombiColor.

Would the Combicolor be suitable for painting the outside of a narrowboat? If so, how many coats should we apply?

Mandy from Dursley (England) - 07/04/17

Yes, as long as suitable preparation is carried out and all areas painted are above the waterline. Apply 2 - 3 coats.

Hi, Can you match paints from VIN chassis codes? I have a VW, paint code LH8U, thanks Phil

Phil from Dunstable (United Kingdom) - 06/01/17

We can't, but we can match to a physical colour sample (as long as it is not metallic) if you can post to our address below with your contact details?

hi ive just purchased some combicolor gloss from you plus thinners what would you recommend to mix for air spray gun please regards stuart

stuart DuHeaume from Taunton Somerset (uk) - 14/10/16

We're looking to spray paint old cast iron rads (we're having them sandblasted first to clean off the old paint/rust). Can we use this product straight onto the cast iron? Do all the colours come in spray format/can, or do we need to adapt for use with pressure spray? Thanks.

Julia from Sheffield (UK) - 08/09/16

We would recommend applying Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion to the prepared cast iron surface before application of Rust-Oleum CombiColor. The primer is also available in an aerosol on the above link, Rust-Oleum CombiColor can be found in aerosols HERE.

what % paint to thinners do i use for rollering this product ?

sandie from Kent (UK) - 06/06/16

Add up to 10% (by volume) Rust-Oleum 7301 CombiColor Thinner. Use short nap, poly-amid (Perlon) 6-12mm rollers. Roller application may require 2 coats to achieve recommended dry film thickness.

Can this be used to repaint a fibreglass vehicle ? What sort or preparation would you recommend?

Simon Davis from Lowestoft (UK) - 24/05/16

Fibreglass should be cleaned and lightly sanded to provide a key, CombiColor can then be applied directly to the surface. If you encounter any adhesion problems or very hard/smooth surfaces you can always prime first with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.

Can you use this directly onto galvanised steel?

Michele Baker from Alton (UK) - 24/05/16

No, after appropriate cleaning of the galvanised surface you would need to prime with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion before applying Rust-Oleum CombiColor.

Can you mix this paint to any colour? could i send you something the same colour that you can scan to create the paint? am looking to paint a van in this colour http://www.motormorph.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/c30600.jpgThanks Rob

Robert from Bristol (UK) - 10/05/16

Yes, please send your colour sample to;

We recommend you purchase 1lt of the matched colour to test the colour prior purchasing the full amount required as we cannot offer refunds on bespoke colours. Please ensure the colour sample you provide us with is good quality, we cannot match from pictures, material, letterheads, etc.

I need something to use on some internal steelwork. It's primed with a zinc undercoat already. Is the matt finish a suitable product for this?

suneil from london (uk) - 29/03/16

It certainly is but this product is only available in Black and White in a matt finish. If you would like to choose one of the other colours available you would have to take it in a Satin or Gloss finish.

I am planning on using Rustoleum Combi Colour to repaint my van and was wondering whether it would also be suitable to repaint the plastic bumpers using the same paint?

tom from bournemouth (UK) - 20/03/16

Yes it would but we would recommend priming any plastic first with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.

Would Rust-Oleum CombiColor be suitable to paint a previously painted metal garage door which is down to bare metal at the bottom where the original paint has started to flake off?

James Taylor from Hull (UK) - 31/10/15

Yes, ensure any loose and flaking paint is removed and the existing paint is sanded to provide a key for the CombiColor to stick to before painting. On the areas that are back to bare metal, although CombiColor can be applied directly to certain metals, garage doors are usually made from galvanised steel, aluminium, etc. which are difficult metals to stick to so we would recommend spot priming these areas first with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.

What is RAL, BS and NCS, and how much is it for a mixed product?

shane from leeds (uk) - 22/09/15

RAL, BS and NCS are 3 colour ranges that are used throughout the industrial sector. Rust-Oleum CombiColor is available to order via our website in any RAL or BS colour, if you choose an NCS colour this can be purchased for no extra cost but the order would have to be taken over the phone.

I'm wanting to touch up my white van with Rust-Oleum CombiColor. Unsure whether I need gloss or satin finish, and if the white will even match? I'm presuming the gloss finish will be more suitable but not sure how shiny the satin finish is?

shane from leeds (uk) - 21/09/15

Although Rust-Oleum CombiColor will be suitable for touching your van up, there are many different variations of white and the standard white CombiColor comes in is unlikely to match your van. We can mix Rust-Oleum CombiColor to any RAL, BS or NCS colour, so we would suggest matching it to the nearest colour from one of these ranges and we can mix this for you in gloss or satin finish. As you have said, the finish on your van at the moment is most probably gloss, but for your reference the gloss level of the satin is 35-55%.

Can I use Rust-Oleum CombiColor over a metal table previously painted with hammerite?

Eve from Withey (UK) - 11/07/15

Yes. Clean the surfaces down and lightly abrade with sandpaper to provide a key and then apply CombiColor directly to the painted surfaces in 1 or 2 coats as required.
