Will you all welcome our new sponsor POR-15 to the site. I emailed Adam last week, and ask about joining our family here so he could help out all of us with questions and concerns of there product, and he said YES!!!! Let all make him, and POR-15, feel welcome, and lets get him busy answering some questions you may have.

Thanx again Adam.

I use the stuff, it is a great product. Anyone who lives in a wet area would be saving future problems by painting their floor pans with this stuff to prevent future rust out problems.

I've never seen the stuff. Is it available in Holland as well, or is it under another name then?

Thanks,
Matthijs

Great stuff. My Brother in Law got me going on it when he did his 56 Ford PU bed with it. A definite thumbs up!

Hello all!

Wow, thanks for the warm welcome!


To answer a few quick questions:

Gulf00 wanted to know if this stuff is available in Holland.

It is available in Europe from the following distributors -
Germany - http://www.hoeseler-por15.com/
U.K. - http://www.frost.co.uk/

Unfortunately, POR-15 qualifies as a hazardous material when being shipped. I don't know what it's like crossing borders in Europe, but here in the US our deliveries passing through Canada on their way to Alaska are suspect. (and because POR-15 is a hazardous material it can only be shipped via ground no matter where its going).

As for POR-15 in spray cans - we get that question a lot.

There are a few problems with putting POR-15 in an aerosol can. One being that the dilution needed to make it work in an aerosol can would undermine its effectiveness.

Another is because POR-15 is moisture cured you'd have just one session to use the can. If you wait until later the POR-15 will seal it shut.

And finally, if spraying POR-15 you need to make sure you're using a good quality respirator to protect your health, which is something most people using an off the shelf can of spray paint aren't going to have.

But Dan, lots of people use their own spray guns to apply POR-15. Just make sure you use the POR-15 Solvent to thin it out (and not another type of solvent). For clean up you can use lacquer thinner. Yes, its messy stuff, but that's how you know it works so well.

Thanks again all. Meet me over at the POR-15 Shop forum where I'll be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

Well, I'll be darned. There right here in Valparaiso, only a few miles down the road from my house. Adam, wheres Crabapple lane at? Valpo's growing so fast I cant keep up with all the new address's. Maybe I can pick mine up locally? I mean I will be needing some real soon, as I'm waiting on a guy to get back to me on doing some sandblasting on the new project for me. mm
