Product Description

Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface coating is a solvent based primer and topcoat in one, based on a modified Alkyd binder, providing good adhesion to many types of substrates and is lead and chromate free.

Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface can be applied on many different substrates like wood, metal*, mdf, masonry, tiles, most plastics, glass, old concrete and more. We advise to do a small adhesion test prior to the application of the full surface. CombiColor Multi-Surface is intended for brush and roller application. For metal structures in a more aggressive industrial environment we advise CombiColor Original in combination with Rust-Oleum CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion 3369/3380.

Recommended Surfaces

  • Wood
  • Metal*
  • Tiles
  • MDF
  • Masonry
  • Glass
  • PVC
  • Concrete


Remove oil, grease and all other surface contaminations by alkaline cleaning in combination with appropriate detergents (e.g. Rust-Oleum Mathys ND14 Cleaner Degreaser). Remove rust scale, loose mill scale, loose rust and loose coatings by scraping, wire brushing or sanding.

Sand intact coatings to roughen the surface slightly. Test before application the compatibility with the old coating. The surface must be clean and dry during application.

New galvanised (bright aluminium-like finish), Zinc and Aluminium (new and old) surfaces have to be primed first with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion.

Aged galvanized (matt grey appearance, showing white rust) should first be cleaned with an acid cleaner (e.g. Rust-Oleum Mathys 108 Surfa Etch Solution) in combination with Scotch-Brite.

Very porous surfaces should be sealed prior to application of Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface.

Can I use this to recoat Promain multisurface paint applied to my metal gates 5 years ago?


We are not familiar with the specific product you have mentioned but if your gates are metal and need recoating we would suggest the original version of Rust-Oleum CombiColor rather than the Multi-Surface version. Assuming the existing paint is sound and well adhered you should just be able to clean down, lightly sand and apply 2 coats of Rust-Oleum CombiColor in the desired colour and finish.

questions Susan on 12/02/2019

I want to give my worktop a shine


The only product we recommend for worktops is Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kit.

questions Roger Field on 09/02/2019

Hello, Is the multi surface product suitable for chalkboards please. If so would the surface be wipeable (if there is such a word). Thank you in advance


To create a Chalkboard surface we would instead recommend Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint (Brush) which is available in 5 different colours.

questions Susan on 09/02/2019

Can i pain kitchen worktops with this


No, we would instead recommend Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kit.

questions Clara on 04/02/2019

Hi can this paint be used on laminate once sanded down..thanks


Yes (as long as it isn't to be applied to worktops), sanding down would be ideal, ensure the surface is then dust and grease free.

questions barbara on 14/10/2018

i want to make dark green dado rail tiles in my bathroom white .what do I need please thank you


After cleaning Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface can be applied directly to wall tiles as long as they are not subjected to frequent/heavy water contact (i.e. in a shower enclosure).

questions Diane on 04/10/2018

Hi. Can I think this paint down, if so what thinners do you recommend.


Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface should be applied by brush or roller and thinning is generally not required, for cleanup use Rust-Oleum Thinner 160.

questions Dave  on 18/09/2018

Can I use this on hot services or bbq& fire pits .Thanks D


We're not sure what you mean by 'hot services' but if you're looking for a heat resistant paint for areas of BBQ/Fire Pits that don't come in direct contact with food or flames you should instead consider Rust-Oleum Heat Resistant Paint 750°C.

questions Kara on 17/05/2018

Can i use this on melamine type covered wood wardrobes?



questions Abu on 19/04/2018

Dear Rawlings Paints Please could you tell me if this would give an effective finish and durability to exterior uPVC doors? It will.need to be weather resistant also Thanks very much


Yes, Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface can be applied to uPVC surface but surfaces to be painted must first be cleaned down with a 5% solution of Rust-Oleum Mathys ND14 Cleaner Degreaser followed by a solvent wipe with Methylated Spirits.

questions Bryan Failes  on 15/04/2018

Can I use this paint on my kitchin worktops ? Can it also be used to repaint my kitchin sink ? Is the paint a epoxy based paint for such reserving projects thus withstanding water and heat


No, Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface must not be used for either of these applications. For worktops we have Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kit and for sinks we have Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile Refinishing Kit.

questions Victoria Brown  on 10/04/2018

Can this product be sprayed on using a spray gun?


No, this product is only recommended for application by brush or roller. The Zinsser AllCoat Exterior (Water Based) range can be applied by spray as well as brush and roller.

questions Simon on 27/02/2018

Can I use chalk paint over this when dried


Normally, the Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint can be applied directly to various different substrates, including most existing paints. So assuming the CombiColor Multi Surface was in good condition, clean, dry and well adhered to the underlying substrate, then yes this should be possible.

questions Derek adams on 04/12/2017
Question: Is this paint safe for toys is non toxic?

Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface has not been tested for such use. We believe that any paints used for toys or childrens play equipment has to be tested and approved to EN71. As CombiColor Multi Surface is intended primarily as an industrial coating, it has not been submitted for such approval.

questions Michelle Needham on 13/09/2017
