What I posted about is their "Rust Reformer" as someone posted a few posts ago, not their paint.

Best method I found for small jobs using POR is to punch a small hole in the lid with a nail, squeeze out a little in a small container and reseal the hole in the lid with duct tape. Keeps the can from curing when opened.

I assume you used the POR-20 (silver aluminum)?

I have also used their WhiteCote, HardNose paint, and Glisten PC clear...which are all 2-part products that don't cure in the can. They are top coats with UV inhibitors.

POR-15 itself is technically a primer, and works AWESOME for encapsulating rust; while it looks glossy (gray or black) when first applied, it will get chalky if exposed to direct sunlight for 3-4 months.
That's what they say on their website, but that's not been my experience. The instructions that came with the can say after thoroughly mixing to pour a small amount in another container and use it from there. Continually dipping the brush in the can is supposed to transfer in moisture which will speed the curing process. I did pour some in another container for use. Then used a piece of saran wrap between the can and the lid before sealing the can.

Two years later I opened the can and followed the same process when I painted the wheels. The paint was still as fresh as the first time it was opened. It worked as well the second time as it did the first. Later this year I'll open the can again to paint the snow blower. If all works well the paint will be nearly 3 years old when I use it again. The website gives it a six month shelf time, which may be true in some areas. However when stored correctly in a cool dry atmosphere the shelf life has certainly been extended.

Duh.

That makes a ton of sense.
I dipped in the can, and had it cure in the can.

Thank you for the very pertinent info!
