POR 15 for rust

Has anyone tried POR 15? I have read it is good for stopping rust. What are your experiences and how do you store it after the can is open? Thank you.

My brother uses it with good results. He says it really doesn't store once open so he buy the smaller cans. Don't get any on you, it doesn't come off. Good luck!

painted the oil pan on my 7.3 SD, impressive paint/coating ,I think its a moisture cure epoxy.
Very tough , last weekend I painted the frame on the Volvo after wire brushing and scaling.After opening can you should use it up as does not store long,and do not get it on your skin ,it left welts on me.

Works like a dream. I used it on the cars that I have restored and on my boat. Easy to use, just wire brush off the loose rust and paint over it. But use rubber gloves. If you get it on your hands, it has to wear off. Good idea not to reseal the origional can, it has a tendancy to weld the lid---even with foil or plastic between the 2 parts.
Anyhow, darn good stuff!!!

Be sure to pour it into a separate bowl to use. Paint it on and let it dry. People make the mistake of using it out of the can, thus "contaminating" it and making the lid stick on and the converter go bad.

As long as you don't try to use it out of the can, it will keep for a long time.

It converts the rust and seals the metal. You should coat after it dries with a good paint.

It is great for truck/car/rv frames. Brush off excess rust and convert. Some rattle can black paint and you have a "new" looking frame.

I have 2 quart cans I have had opened over 2 years ago & they are still usable. 1 is silver with aluminum in it & the other is black. Each has its own use. I use a measuring spoon bent in a ladle shape to dip it out of the can. Do not get it on the edge of the can it will weld the lid to the can & you will never get it off without destroying the can & lid. I use sahran wrap between the lid & the can to store.
I once bought a can from a parts/auto paint supplier. I could not get the can open. I returned it and the store owner destroyed the can taking the lid off. He then wanted to pour it in 2 cans & give it back to me. I refused & he finally gave me a new can. I was not very happy & I buy a lot of paint & parts from the guy. I had to remind him just how good of a customer I was.

Check your local auto parts stores that sell body shop supplies, but not the big chains. We have a auto parts store here that has it in stock. You can order it online from many sources, just google Por 15

There are off brands too. Rust converter. I have used several different ones. They all work good.

Car parts store. Wally World. Hardware store. Most carry some brand.

Thanks. I have a couple frame spots I want to just make look better. Not that all coaches don't have rust, even the brand new ones.

It needs a rough surface to bond. So as suggested, wire brush loose stuff off and then coat it. If clean metal it will peel off. It is a moisture cure epoxy paint, so if you want to save the remaining part of a can, do not dip brush from the can. Ladle some out and then reseal. Wear gloves, it is permanent on your skin and has to wear off. You can clean wet paint with lacquer thinner, but once dried you are stuck with it. When you put lid back on the can, make sure it is clean, the paint will make it stuck and impossible to reopen.

It is not UV stable and will go on gloss black, but will fade to flat black with UV exposure. Does not affect the corrosion properties, but does change appearance. It levels out very nice when brushed on. Use a cheap throw away brush. Do not spray unless you have a positive air respirator, the fumes are very bad for you. Plus spraying gets it everywhere. Just brush it with gloves and some ground protection for drips. It will be permanent on your driveway or garage floor.
