Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface paint 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.

Preparation & Application
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.
- *For further information about application to galvanised steel and non-ferrous metals as well as a full overview of suitable substrates and application tips, please consult our technical team by email or on 0113 2455450.
To ensure homogeneity, coating materials should be thoroughly stirred prior to use.
Temperature of air, substrate and coating material between 5° and 35°C and relative humidity below 85%. The substrate temperature must be at least 3°C above dew point.
Application By Brush
Use natural bristles, long hair brushes. Thinning generally not required
Application By Roller
Use short nap, poly-amid 6-12 mm rollers. Roller application may require 2 coats to achieve recommended dry film thickness Thinning generally not required.
Not recommended for spray applications.

Hi, I'm looking to paint a galvanised shed. Is this product suitable for direct application to the bare galvanised surface? Thanks, Mark.
Galvanised steel would need priming initially with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion

I'm looking to paint the interior side of my composite door can I use this paint for that, also would I need to prep the door if I can Many thanks Gina
Yes, first remove oil, grease and all other surface contaminations by cleaning in combination with appropriate detergents (e.g. Rust-Oleum Pre-Paint Cleaner). Remove all 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.
|Michelle Cook on 2019-09-21 22:10:19|| |
Hi can this paint be used on external UPVC cladding? Many thanks

|charles JOHN Bailey on 2019-09-01 07:53:53|| |

We want to coat a glass top, patio furniture table so it becomes opaque. Would this or any other of your products be suitable?
Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface is suitable to be applied to glass but wouldn't be suitable for a table top, it may work better to coat the underneath of the table top so the colour shows through but the glass top can still take the wear and tear.

Can Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface be supplied as a satin finish? If not would it be possible for me to add a solvent based matting solution?
Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface is available in the following colours in a Satin finish - RAL 9005, 9010, 7001, 9001 and 9016. It is also available in a Matt finish in Black and White. We wouldn't recommend adding any matting agents into this product, however if none of the above colours meet your requirements then our Techincal Team may be able to recommend an alternative product in a satin finish for your use - 0113 2455450 (option 2) or email you project details to [email protected]

Hello, I am looking to purchase: Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface Reference 7300MS . This will be applied to old cast iron window frames, which require a repaint. Does this have low VOC? I assume I do not need to buy anything else from the instructions, by sanding down and cleaning after. Thank you.
The data sheet for Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface advises: 'For metal structures in a more aggressive industrial environment we advise CombiColor Original in combination with Rust-Oleum CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion 3369/3380.' For details of VOC levels on all products, these can be found in the product data sheets available to download from the 'Attachments' tab on each product page.
|Derek Muir on 2019-04-24 13:51:04|| |
Is this available in other RAL colours other than those indicated. I need a brown (ideally RAL8011), but there is no brown shown.
Yes, we are able to mix this to nearly all RAL colours now (RAL 8011 Nut Brown is no problem), website will be updated soon to reflect this but in the meantime you can order via phone on 0113 2455450 (option 1).
|B Hamilton on 2019-02-21 14:40:41|| |
Do you have a paint that would paint a static caravan it's not the metal type it's like cladding.
Not quite sure of the surface you're trying to paint here but Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface would be a good place to start. Carry out a test area if unsure to ensure adhesion, appearance, etc.
|Tracey on 2019-02-20 17:16:11|| |
Is the rust oleum multi surface be ok to paint tiles in a shower?
Rust-Oleum CombiColor Multi-Surface is OK to be applied to tiles but not in a shower area where it will be in contact with water from the shower.
|R Logan-Reid on 2019-02-16 11:03:55|| |
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.

I want to give my worktop a shine
The only product we recommend for worktops is Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kit.
|Roger Field on 2019-02-09 16:01:56|| |
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.
|Susan on 2019-02-09 12:10:30|| |
Can i pain kitchen worktops with this
No, we would instead recommend Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kit.
|Clara on 2019-02-04 16:38:15|| |
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.
|barbara on 2018-10-14 21:25:22|| |
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).
|Diane on 2018-10-04 19:57:59|| |
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.
|Dave on 2018-09-18 19:50:18|| |
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.
|Kara on 2018-05-17 07:24:51|| |
Can i use this on melamine type covered wood wardrobes?
|Abu on 2018-04-19 08:34:23|| |
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.
|Bryan Failes on 2018-04-15 16:04:29|| |
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
|Victoria Brown on 2018-04-10 06:35:04|| |
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.
|Simon on 2018-02-27 11:53:03|| |
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.
|Derek adams on 2017-12-04 19:43:56|| |
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.
