Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood Platinum as used in my restoration Despite that I've had a few spots that "bubbled" slightly, this is a great product. I've used POR 15 and I really like how it looks when done(gloss black is really smooth). This product is a "silvery aluminum". It goes on easily with a brush(I've never used air/gun yet). I will admit that one can that I received was a little "thick". I used it anyway and it didn't seem any different than the other I received; though they were more consistent with POR 15. Again, I did have a little bit of "bubbling" take place. But it still cured hard yet flexible. I can actually push on the bubbles with my fingernail/screw driver. But I wouldn't call it "rubbery". I tried to "pop" the bubbles and couldn't do it. I hammered the bubbles and the surrounding area.... also attempted to scratch with flat blade screwdriver. It held up surprisingly well with a slight scar mark from the screwdriver when pressed extremely hard. Once I felt confident it would hold, I scuffed it and applied a second coat. After that first time, I don't second guess; I just apply, wait the directed amount of time and recoat. This stuff WILL glue your can lid on like POR 15. However, there is one thing I notice: I always pour a new can into some plastic paint/mixing cups that I buy(pint size). I then take saran wrap and place it over the top and push it down INTO the Platinum. This pushes out all the air at the top. I have some Platinum that has remained uncured for over 3 months this way. If I remove the saran wrap and use some of the product, I repeat the process. It won't last as long this time because you were dipping a brush with product exposed to air. But I find you can get another 30 days of storage before the top starts to crust over. The POR 15 has never given me past 30 days without the top becoming a hard crust. I've used this on floor pans(top and bottom), trunk areas, inside frames(using daubers or soaked rags on a coat hanger), etc.. The coverage seems to be very good and, again, I've been very impressed with durability. Why it "bubbled" is beyond me. I followed instructions: prep, temp, away from direct sun, etc.. This is why I do not have confidence to use this in an area where it could be visible. I also noticed that I can see a few brush marks occasionally. With POR 15, I've never had the brush marks or bubbling occur and that gloss black looks amazing when new. I've also applied Platinum and later decided to cut out metal and expose "hidden areas". I would apply the Platinum and then install new plate and reweld in new piece. The platinum seems to be fairly durable against the heat. Even still, I would grind back to remove the "blackened" edges, scuff properly and reapply. Personally, I've used 3 quarts on a 71 mustang(and some other odds and ends around the house). That provided me with 2 coats on top of the floor, under the floor, same in the trunk, frame rails, dash area, cowl area, and some areas reached with daubers. For my underside, I waited the appropriate amount of time and covered with 2 coats of Aerosol POR 15 Rubberized undercoating and then again with 2 coats Krylon/RustOleum satin black BBQ grill paint. Though POR 15 looks amazing when done, I have seen it peel/chip BEFORE it even gets used on the road. I also think that POR 15 needs more scuffing for top coating because the gloss black is so "slick". Here's another comparison: I've spilled POR and Platinum on my jeans. The POR.... is very stiff and solid. Once you crack and break it up, you can slowly finger nail it out of the fabric. The Platinum.... I wouldn't say it's flexible like rubber... but it is flexible like a very still piece of plastic that bends. I still have those pants that have been to the washer several times and I have "finger nailed" to try to remove the Platinum. Some spots have come out; most have NOT. On my driveway, I've used my high pressure Hotsy steal cleaner to remove the POR spilled. I've managed to remove MOST Platinum... not ALL spots. I think over time I will this is what I have seen so far. Overall VERY happy. In my 40+ years of automotive experience, I would rate Eastwood Platinum as the TOP anti-rust coatings so far due to durability and flexibility given the abuse, testing, and heat I've applied to it in my process of restoring my car. I hope that when I start using it that it doesn't start to peel; time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use seems durable Product has been working well on the floor panel replacement project i've been doing. Paint is a bit thick but I was able to thin out with a bit of xylene. Doesn't level out too much, but is totally fine as i'm brushing on and will be painting over. My only issue was with the can it came in. I had to rip off the lid the first time as it was sealed shut and then just put it in another container for future use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reciew Awesome product. The lid on the can it came in was really stuck on so pretty much had to destroy it to get it off. Had to put it in another container to reuse
