Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good primer for metal. The primer is great. I used it successfully over light surface rust for a good base to apply tractor paint. Make sure you mix VERY well before application. I used an electric pump less sprayer.

What is the difference between this product and Rust-Oleum professional high performance metal primer? I painting metal rafters and fencing.

Asked by: FCS123
Rust-Oleum Specialty Farm and Implement Oxide Metal Primer is great for rusted surfaces and offers excellent adhesion to rusted surfaces. If needing a larger container of paint, you can certainly use a Rust-Oleum Professional High-Performance Primer. If you have more questions, please give us a call at 800-481-4785. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

I am planning to repaint a metal utility trailer. The trailer has some light rust in a few spots. I will be applying the paint with a brush. Would you recommend this use?

Asked by: kb4fzk
Glad to lend a hand. The Rust-Oleum Specialty Farm & Implement Metal Primer can certainly be used on that type of surface. Just make sure to sand or wire brush the rusted areas and clean the entire surface with soap and water to ensure adhesion. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

We appreciate your interest! Rust-Oleum Specialty Farm & Implement Paint is great for metal surfaces, but we recommend contacting the manufacturer before applying that product over Rust-Oleum paint to ensure product compatibility. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

What surface paint can be used over this? Can any paint oil or latex be used?

Asked by: cris1
Hi Cris, thank you for reaching out! Our Rust-Oleum Farm & Implement Red Oxide Metal Primer is designed for use prior to top coating with our Rust-Oleum Farm & Implement Oil-Based Enamel. Other types of oil-based coatings may be applied, and water-based paints may be applied once the primer has cured for at least 7 days. We recommend testing the top coat in an inconspicuous area to ensure compatibility prior to the application. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/rust-oleum-specialty-farm-implement-low-gloss-black-1-gal?rfk=1 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
