Hi there.
I know very little about the product. Can you tell me how it works, how you apply it, is there multiple steps? Any input would be great... Thanks... Guy

There is another thread on this already. But it is usually brushed on. It can be sprayed. I may not be saying this right, but it encapsulates the area, choking off and bonding with the rust. I thinks it's a one step process, but needs to cure.

I just entered this forum today and need to organize a quick primer on POR-15 to answer some of the most asked questions. Give me another day or two on that, but in the meantime let me just clear up what's been asked so far and toss in a few quick links to some of our online FAQ's and Product Info pages.

POR-15 is a moisture cured, urethane based product that is extremely resistant to chips and cracks. Most paints cure by allowing solvents to evaporate which leaves behind microscopic holes which allows air and moisture to pass through to the underlying surface. POR-15 cures by drawing moisture from the atmosphere and forms a more complete and air-tight coating.

Using POR-15 is typically a three step process. Clean and degrease using our Marine Clean product, neutralize any rust and etch the metal with our Metal Ready product and finally coating with the POR-15. As with any paint job (and especially so with POR-15) good preparation is key to a lasting and quality finish.

This is it in a nutshell, but because of its moisture cured properties you have to treat the prep, application and storage a little differently. This is one reason why PORShop.com feels that this forum is important. We always get lots of questions. Besides selling POR-15 products we also spend a lot of time to make sure that our customers understand how to get the best results from its use.


In the meantime, let me direct you to some useful info from our website.

Again, we're going to be posting some more basic info in this forum to help jump start some of those who are uninitiated to POR-15 products. In the meantime, keep those questions coming!

I'm not familiar with the exact properties of the spray on bedliner you're using, but you would need to at least scratch up the POR-15 with a wire wheel. You can use sandpaper too, but it tends to gum up.

You may get better results by applying the bedliner over the POR-15 before it has a chance to cure. Apply over the POR-15 after it gets just beyond the tacky stage (1 - 3 hours depending on how much humidity is in the air).

Another option is to topcoat with one of our Hardnose paints:

Its a two part coating that is about as tough as you can get. Unfortunately, there aren't a wide number of colors available.

If you want Black you can paint the bed with POR-15 Black and then use the Glisten PC to topcoat, which is basically Hardnose without any pigment:
