A primer thats well proven over 90 years is Rust Oleum Red Oxide
primer with fish oil. I would go with a product not EPA reduced for
air pollution regulations, meaning new Stuff, Rust Oleum is a
standard quality product, bottom line is to follow instructions on the
can ,that is clean and sand
I guess not everyone reads other people's threads and are up to speed. :(
I should have been more clearer on its intended use.
this project is for the post-zinc removal of the shaped plates (see
painting metal braces thread).
my intention is to spray paint the braces black.
I already bought the Krylon spray primer can last year for an outdoor
furniture project I never got around to doing.
so this was the purpose of query Krylon spray can and its possible
I'm not sure about Rust Oleum spray can. I've never used that type of
product, but I've used Rust Oleum which I've hand painted on the outdoor
furniture some years back.

rust-oleum dries very soft and is best used on surfaces that will never
be subject to any mechanical abrasion. if this is going on a pickup
truck I would try either hammerite or perhaps POR-15 (but if the latter,
the metal should be sandblasted first, or else left to intentionally
rust slightly before application - POR-15 needs some "tooth" to stick
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
The people who make chain link fences and gates use what's called zinc-
rich primer where the welds have burned away the galvanizing. It is
available in spray cans. Check at a real genuine paint store or
industrial supply firm. It can be top coated any color and will
outlast any other non zinc coating. RustOleum is a good second choice.
There are many zinc rich primers - including zinc epoxy primers
(corlar?)and zinc CHROMATE primer was more commonly used on aluminum
than on steel - and is hard to get and somewhat dangerous to use
because of the (i believe, covalent) chromium.
The "cold galvanize" spray works pretty good but CAN be difficult to
topcoat - needs to be COMPLETELY hardened before top-coating - as many
will lift or wrinkle if shot with a highly volatile (hot) topcoat.
