Rust-Oleum 7500 Alkythane

Rust-Oleum 7500 Alkythane is a single pack high performance, anti-corrosion topcoat for metal. Ideal for low temperatures (as low as 5°C) it offers the same protection in less layers than other alkyd-systems.

Remove grease, oil and all other surface contaminations by cleaning in combination with Rust-Oleum Mathys ND14 Cleaner Degreaser. Remove salts, 'white rust', etc., by washing with Rust-Oleum Mathys 108 Surfa Etch Solution. Then prime with Rust-Oleum 3202 Galvinoleum Primer before finishing with Rust-Oleum 7500 Alkythane.

questions Sue on 2019-06-18 14:46:13

Which is more hard wearing, CombiColor or Alkythane? Any other differences to consider? I'm looking at hard wearing paint for a narrowboat where ropes will slide along the roof edge, not to mention scrapes when mooring, etc. Thanks


Rust-Oleum CombiColor and Rust-Oleum 7500 Alkythane would have similar performance in this situation, if you wish to consider something harder wearing you would need to look at Rust-Oleum 9200 Rust-O-Thane or Rust-Oleum 9600 Rust-O-Thane Polyurethane.

questions Peter Davies on 2019-05-17 14:14:05

When applying rust oleum 7500 over an existing unidentified coating, do I need a primer. the existing surface is sound but has been hand painted a long time ago and will need abrading in places to remove runs.


The data sheet states the following preparation;

Remove oil, grease and all other contamination by alkaline or high pressure (steam) cleaning in combination with appropriate detergents. Remove rust scale, loose mill scale, loose rust and loose coatings by scraping and wire brushing to St 2/3 (ISO 8501-1 : 1988), blast cleaning to Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1 : 1988) or sanding, followed by priming with the recommended Rust-Oleum Primers. Sand previous coatings in good condition to provide a key for adhesion and check compatibility. The surface must be clean and dry during application.

questions Davey Chambers on 2019-05-02 09:15:50

Can you provide pan-tone reference numbers for your paint colours? Digital display resolutions between different devices won't provide an accurate representation of the actual product. I can see about 6 different greys that all display the same. Thanks Davey


You are correct that colours can vary screen to screen due to resolution settings and monitor quality. We pressume you have a physical Pantone colour chart which is why you want to go by these references but unfortunately RAL and BS colours do not directly corrolate with Pantone shades. We can produce Rust-Oleum 7500 Alkythane in nearly any RAL, BS, NCS, and many other paint colour ranges so we would suggest posting you a colour chart if you can provide an address to our sales team.
