POR15 is a unique American paint that stops rust permanently, according to the importers and distributors, Permanent Painted Coatings (PPC) . The paint uses a reverse technology that actually cures by sucking in moisture from the atmosphere. It chemically bonds to the metal, drying to an incredibly hard finish that is ‘hammer tough’ but at the same time remains very flexible.
This process seals the metal from any moisture or air returning to the metal and thereby stops rust. Users find they can brush it on and achieve an almost spray-like, professional finish.
PPC has a large range of products and 70 dealers around Australia. Their range runs from the POR15 rust preventative paint in gloss black, grey or silver (designed more as primers, particularly if exposed to UV) to the high gloss Blackcote, the semi gloss Chassiscote, and Sterling Silver.
The products feature clear coats that don't yellow and adhere to stainless steel, heat paints designed for extractors, SW2 oil that goes into areas that cannot be painted. Added to this are specialised bogs that work with POR-15 and the Hardnose range of two pack colours.
The company also stock a comprehensive range of spray guns imported directly, which saves all the middle man costs. A PPC catalogue is available.
All POR15 rust preventative products are guaranteed to stop rust permanently when applied by the manufacturer's instructions and all are tough thanks to their ceramic-like finish.
