Peel Coat Custom Color & Effects System

    Is it possible to cover a dark colored item in a lighter color?

    Yes. The project will require more than the usual amount of Peel Coat product to fully conceal the original color. Using the White Color Additive as a mid-coat helps with the color transition and results in fewer overall coats.

    Is a primer needed prior to applying Peel Coat?

    No. A primer is not needed for use with Peel Coat.

    Do I need to thin the Peel Coat Custom Color & Effects System prior to spraying?

    No. Rust-Oleum does not require or recommend thinning the tintable base gallons, color additives or the tint effects. The Peel Coat Custom Color & Effects System is a ready-to-spray system upon mixing the Tintable Base Gallon with a Color Additive or Tint Effect.

    Can I spray a Color Additive or Tint Effect directly onto a surface?

    No. Rust-Oleum Color Additive and Tint Effects must be mixed into the Gloss Clear or Matte Clear Tintable Base Gallons prior to application.

    Do I need to add a Color Additive or Tint Effect to each Gloss Clear or Matte Clear Tintable Base Gallon?

    Yes. Every gallon should have a Color Additive or Tint Effect mixed into the Base Gallon. For example, if you are spraying a full-sized car with Gloss Metallic Blue, you will need to purchase 4 Gloss Clear Gallons, 4 Blue Color Additive half pint cans and 4 Clear Metallic Tint Effect half pint cans.
