Where to Use
  • For use on metal substrates.
  • Can be applied directly over firm, rusty surfaces.
  • For previously painted surfaces, apply HAMMERITE® RUST CAP® HAMMERED ENAMEL FINISH to a small area first to check adhesion and test for lifting or cracking.


Surface Preparation†
  • Prepare surface by removing dirt, grease, wax, moisture, rust, loose paint and any other contamination that can affect the coating's adhesion. If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or TSP substitute. Rinse well and allow to dry. 
  • Scrape off loose paint and rust with a wire brush.
  • Scuff sand rusted, glossy or hard surfaces.†


  • Aluminum and galvanized surfaces require a prime coat of HAMMERITE® RUST CAP® GALVANIZED & ALUMINUM PRIMER.


  • Eye protection is recommended.
  • Do not thin.
  • Use in a well-ventilated area when temperature is between 60°F and 80°F and humidity is below 60% to ensure proper drying.
  • Mix paint thoroughly before and during application.
  • Always maintain a wet edge, but avoid over-brushing and/or rolling.
  • Apply 2 or more coats as needed to achieve the 4 mil dry film thickness.
  • Recoat after the first coat has dried to the touch (30-45 minutes).
  • Use a high quality ¼” nap Mohair cover on smooth surfaces. A quality synthetic bristle brush can also be used.
