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.

Please advise which paint to use on upvc ie primer and top coat. We require ral 7016 matt finnish. Also require ral 7016 matt for aluminium profiles to cover excisting coat which needs refurb. Thank you.
|Adam on 07/01/2019|
Can I get a sample of the colour I am looking to use?
The best way to check a colour is to buy a 1 litre of CombiColor in the colour you wish to use and apply it to the substrate in question and allow to dry. However we do have printed colour charts which we can post to you first, but these are only approximate and not provide a true representation of the colour.
|Pete on 18/12/2018|
Hi, can you mix rustoleum to colour match a sample? i need to get some mixed to match against a car i am painting but need a good colour match. i can send you an off cut of body work to match against.
Yes as long as it is not a metallic finish as the metallic colours we can offer in CombiColor are limited.
|Norma on 18/11/2018|
Dear Rawlings, I’m looking for a paint to cover two black garage doors that have been neglected for 25 years. There is no rust but the previous paint is flaking in places . Which paint would you recommend as a one-stop solution?
Rust-Oleum CombiColor would be our recommendation for this. Assuming there are no areas of bare metal, thoroughly clean with something like Rust-Oleum Pre-Paint Cleaner and lightly sand if necessary to provide a key, then apply 2 coats of Rust-Oleum CombiColor in your chosen colour and finish.
|Noep on 28/10/2018|

|Angus on 11/09/2018|
We have an ornamental cast-iron stag in our garden which I need to repair (don't ask - it's got a broken leg!), fill some small casting holes, rub down and repaint, which I assume is relatively straight forward using your mat, one coat paint/ The problem is, it is currently two-tone painted mat black with bronze highlights - is that effect possible using your CombiColor paints? Kind regards Angus
Rust-Oleum CombiColor is available in almost any RAL, BS or NCS colour in Satin or Gloss finishes, including metallic shades but we only offer black and white in a matt finish and don't offer 'two tone' colours. Alternatively you may prefer to use Rust-Oleum CombiColor Wrought Iron as this has a pleasing matt, metallic black or green finish available.
|Peter Davies on 06/09/2018|

|Lisa on 21/08/2018|
Can I paint over a metal surface previously painted with Rust-Oleum Universal All Surface Paint using CombiColor or will the two paints react with one another?
Yes, Rust-Oleum CombiColor should be fine over fully cured Rust-Oleum Universal All Surface Paint. Ensure surfaces to paint are clean, well adhered and lightly sanded to provide a key.
|Tony West on 19/08/2018|
Hi do you have a colour chart, Thanks

|Neil on 29/07/2018|
Hi, I have a metal walkway leading into a residential property. It has been previously painted but the paint has warn off in some areas. Rust is also forming in some parts. I need something durable, that will prevent further rust and can be applied over the existing paint. Is this suitable? If not is there a product that is ?
Rust-Oleum CombiColor would be ideally suited to this application as long as it is not applied to any areas that are walked on. Prepare thoroughly as per the product data (clean, remove all rust, flaking paint, etc.) then apply Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion to all areas of bare metal (assuming mild steel) and then to primed and previously painted areas (after cleaning and sanding to provide a key) apply 2 coats of Rust-Oleum CombiColor in your chosen colour and finish.
|Phil on 19/07/2018|
Hi, do you sell a clear coat that i can use in a spray gun? Thanks
Rust-Oleum 7500 Alkythane is available in clear and can be spray applied, this is similar to Rust-Oleum CombiColor and may meet your requirements.
|mike Ockwell on 05/07/2018|
Hi do you have a chart with the colours available in the Combicolor range or can you mix to any RAL code? Many thanks Mike

|Warren on 10/06/2018|
Hi Can combicolour original be sprayed onto vehicle bumpers
Rust-Oleum CombiColor is not an automotive paint range, however should you wish to test the application on to plastic bumpers we would recommend trying Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface instead.
|martin on 10/06/2018|
Can rust-oleum combi colour original, for metal, be applied to bare timber please?

|Una on 22/05/2018|
What paint would you suggest to paint metal garage door which has previous black paint and undercoat?
Rust-Oleum CombiColor would be ideal for these, assuming existing paints are well adhered and there are no bare areas, clean and abrade to provide a key and apply 2 coats of CombiColor to all areas.
|Ben on 20/05/2018|
Hello I was wondering if I sent you a paint sample would you be able to match it to the closest colour in the rustoleum range or mix it to the same colour and still provide me with a paint code in case I’d need to reorder the paint if more is needed in the future Thanks Ben
Yes, as long as the colour sample is not metallic or fluorescent please send to;
Rawlins Paints, Northspeed House, Moorview, Holbeck, Leeds, LS11 9NF.
|Anna on 10/05/2018|
Hello, im looking for a deep red wine colour, burgandy or claret or theatre red.. it looks like the closest you may have is venetian red but im not sure it is quite right. Could you help me find the right colour? It says you will try to match a colour if necessary, thanks
We can provide Rust-Oleum CombiColor in nearly all RAL, BS and NCS colours if you can find a colour suitable within these industry standard colour ranges. If not, then you can post us something showing the colour you require and we can formulate the closest match we can to it.
|Phil on 16/04/2018|
Hi can I use the combi colour on a narrow boat above the waterline if so can I roller it over the existing paint and should I thin it ?
Yes, sand intact coatings to roughen the surface slightly, the surface must be clean and dry during application.
You can thin up to 10 vol. %; with Rust-Oleum 7301 CombiColor Thinner. Use short nap, polyamid (Perlon) 6-12mm rollers. Roller application may require 2 coats to achieve recommended dry film thickness.
|Eaves on 10/04/2018|

We also offer the full NCS colour range and many other colours not shown on the website which you can order by contacting us on 0113 2455450.
|Julie on 08/04/2018|
Can this be used on rusty galvanised garden seat as a one application
As you have advised the galvanised steel is rusty, we would presume that the substrate is therefore very well aged, meaning that it is therefore possible to consider applying Rust-Oleum CombiColor directly. This should be done after degreasing the surface with a solution of Rust-Oleum Mathys ND14 Cleaner Degreaser, and after de-rusting of the affected areas. One coat is possible, although our best advice remains that application of a second coat will provide the benefits of better appearance and longer life expectancy.
|Dee on 09/02/2018|
Can I paint this directly onto an old aluminium garage door without sanding or 1st. Sowing some rust on edges at bottom of door but otherwise sound just needs a clean look.
No. The door should be thoroughly cleaned and the rusted areas should be abraded to remove all loose and flaking rust and spot primed with Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion. The rest of the door that is sound, after cleaning should be primed with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion and then overcoated with Rust-Oleum CombiColor in the finish and colour of your choice after 30 minutes.
|Scott on 31/01/2018|
Can this paint be used directly on a previously coated shop front surface?
Assuming the shop front is aluminium/powdercoat we would recommend using Rust-Oleum Pre-Paint Cleaner to prepare the surface then priming with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion and then finishing with Rust-Oleum CombiColor in the colour and finish of your choice. If the shop front has been previously painted with a conventional paint then after cleaning with Rust-Oleum Pre-Paint Cleaner, you can lightly abrade to provide a key and go straight on with CombiColor without the need for Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.
|Edward on 26/11/2017|
Question: 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?
|Terry Robson on 22/08/2017|
Question: 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!
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.
|WAYNE on 12/08/2017|
Question: can this be applied to aged powder coated garage doors, in a one coat application ?
On powdercoat we normally recommend cleaning and first priming with 1 coat of Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.
|Anthony McGuinness on 01/08/2017|
Question: 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
If you want to apply the CombiColor original to PVC you would need to first prime with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.
|John Blanning on 29/07/2017|
Question: 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
|David Wilson on 25/06/2017|
Question: 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
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.
|Tallulah on 23/05/2017|
Question: 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
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.
|Mandy on 07/04/2017|
Question: Would the Combicolor be suitable for painting the outside of a narrowboat? If so, how many coats should we apply?
Yes, as long as suitable preparation is carried out and all areas painted are above the waterline. Apply 2 - 3 coats.
|Phil on 06/01/2017|
Question: Hi, Can you match paints from VIN chassis codes? I have a VW, paint code LH8U, thanks Phil

Question: hi ive just purchased some combicolor gloss from you plus thinners what would you recommend to mix for air spray gun please regards stuart
|Julia on 08/09/2016|
Question: 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.
|sandie on 06/06/2016|
Question: what % paint to thinners do i use for rollering this product ?
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.
|Simon Davis on 24/05/2016|
Question: Can this be used to repaint a fibreglass vehicle ? What sort or preparation would you recommend?
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.
|Michele Baker on 24/05/2016|
Question: Can you use this directly onto galvanised steel?
No, after appropriate cleaning of the galvanised surface you would need to prime with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion before applying Rust-Oleum CombiColor.
|Robert on 10/05/2016|
Question: 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.jpg
Yes, please send your colour sample to;
FAO Colour Matching
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.
|suneil on 29/03/2016|
Question: 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?
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.
|tom on 20/03/2016|
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?
Yes it would but we would recommend priming any plastic first with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.
|James Taylor on 31/10/2015|
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?
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.
|shane on 22/09/2015|
What is RAL, BS and NCS, and how much is it for a mixed product?
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.
|shane on 21/09/2015|
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?
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%.
|Eve on 11/07/2015|
Can I use Rust-Oleum CombiColor over a metal table previously painted with hammerite?
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.
