exterior metal paint idea needed

For quite some time, Rustoleum was, for all practical puposes, the ONLY paint widely available which dealt somewhat with rust situations.
I'm not at all current, so hence the question.
I understand now that there is at least one kind of paint available which may be better than Rustoleum, in that it seals rust in, and arrests it, and still looks good. Supposedly, you just paint it over rust.
Please give me a name brand or two of paints that fulfill this function.

IIRC, what you're describing is still a Rustoleum product, just a relatively newer one than the original. But again, that's assuming I'm recalling correctly.

I painted for years, my co . The product you describe may be a sales pitch. Go to or contact Sherwin Williams, Pratt Lambert and Benjamin Moore Technical Sales Dept. Do what they say . They have the best Chemests and newest PRoven technology. Not sales pitches.....

Hi there... I think you need to purchase some Rustoleum rusty metal primer. It isn't hype as one reader suggested. It really works! I experimented with in on an old '78 Ford truck. I did a whole front fended with the primer and 2 years later the rust hadn't come through. It's great! BTW, I never had good luck with Sherwin Williams paint. Sorry to the other responder. No offense to him. I've done it for many years too and I never trust SW anymore.

I work with a Pittsburgh dealer. We painted a cooling tower base frame with this material. It needed to be redone in about 5 years, but a leaking cooling tower keeps the steel wet and in contact with acidic chemicals.
