Automotive Clearcoat with Superior Finish Quality, Durability and Ease of Use

Automotive Clearcoat with Superior Finish Quality, Durability and Ease of Use

DiamondFinish Clear

Wheels were refinished with DiamondFinish Clear. They look great and the coating allows brake dust to be easily wiped off.

All clearcoats are not created equal. Finish quality, durability and ease of use are important qualities that vary among manufacturers. KBS Coatings has developed DiamondFinish Clear to exceed the competition in all these areas.

DiamondFinish Clear is a permanent, single part formula, high gloss clearcoat that uses an advanced coatings technology to permanently seal both paints and metals. It can be applied direct to metal or over cured automotive basecoats, standard solid color paints, and single-part or two-part paints. It can also be applied to ferrous as well as non-ferrous metals including aluminum, alloys, brass, chrome and copper. DiamondFinish Clear is a moisture cured urethane that is UV stable, durable and extremely tough and remains permanently flexible. This automotive clearcoat able to perform in the toughest environments without yellowing, cracking or peeling.

DiamondFinish Clear is user-friendly and can be applied to surfaces with minimal surface preparation. The unique formulation allows it to adhere to non-ferrous metals without an etching primer. Unlike normal two-part coatings, no hardener is needed. DiamondFinish Clear will cure without heat or UV lights in temperatures from 50° F to 86° F. Because of its superior adhesion properties, it doesn’t have problems with delamination.

DiamondFinish Clear is self-leveling and can be applied with a roller, conventional spray gun, or with a brush without leaving any brush marks which are the bane for most clear coat finishes.

Tougher and harder than a two-part automotive clearcoat, DiamondFinish Clear will withstand the harshest of chemicals including fuels, solvents, battery acid, brake fluid, ethanol, methanol, MEK, hydrochloric acid, and acetone. When applied correctly, DiamondFinish Clear can act as a sealant to prevent corrosion. DiamondFinish Clear also allows easy surfaces clean up. For example, brake dust can be simply wiped off wheels.

DiamondFinish Clear looks fantastic and can be used to beautify and protect items like automotive paint (can be used like a traditional clear coat), wheels, aluminum fittings, and fuel tanks. It also works great for high temperature automotive applications (up to 300° F) including cylinder heads, engine blocks, brake calipers and intake manifolds without yellowing. It can also be used as the finishing step for composite headlamp restoration.

DiamondFinish Clear was used to seal the bare metal body of this VW! Looks cool and is sealed away from rust.

Preparation before applying DiamondFinish Clear varies depending on the type of surface. When used as a clear coat for a paint base coat, it is simply applied on top of the base coat. When applied over cured coatings, clean the surface with KBS Klean diluted 10 parts hot water to 1-part KBS Klean. Scuff with 600-1200 grit sandpaper, repeat cleaning process and rinse. When coating bare metals, they should be freshly polished or sanded to the finish required. For ferrous metals, clean with KBS Klean at a dilution rate of 10 parts hot water to 1-part KBS Klean and scrub with a soft non-abrasive cleaning pad. For non-ferrous metals (aluminum, copper, brass, etc.), clean with KBS Klean at a dilution rate of 25 parts hot water to 1-part KBS Klean with the use of a very soft non-abrasive cleaning pad.

When applying DiamondFinish Clear by brush apply thin, covering coats and once an area is covered move on immediately to the next area. If you brush over an area over and over again forcing the solvents out, you run the risk of the brush marks not flowing out as well they are designed to. When spraying, thin with KBS #1 Thinner 10%-15% which is normally adequate. DiamondFinish Clear can be thinned up to 30%. Use a spray pressure of 35-45 psi for siphon/pot guns and 25-35psi for gravity/top container guns. As a general rule of thumb, a 1.4-1.5 nozzle works well. Always apply a minimum of 2 covering coats, apply a thin covering initial coat followed by a moderate to full coat (2 mils each) for general applications.

Motorcycle Exhaust Coating Stops Corrosion, Looks Great, and is a Cost-Effective Solution

Motorcycle Exhaust Coating Stops Corrosion, Looks Great, and is a Cost-Effective Solution

Motorcycle Exhaust Paint

A rusted motorcycle exhaust system looks terrible. It can make your bike look aged and generally detract from its appearance. The rest of the motorcycle could look great, but the exhaust is such a large and noticeable part of the bike that unless the rust is stopped, rust will progress to the point where the metal is weakened or even perforated. You could purchase a new exhaust system but that could cost a few hundred dollars or even thousands. Lucky for you, the KBS Coatings XTC rust prevention system provides a far more cost-effective solution.

The XTC rust prevention system consists of XTC (Xtreme Temperature Coating) and XTC Silicone Zinc Primer that work together to prevent corrosion of metal surfaces exposed to high heat, high humidity, condensation and salt air. The formulation of these products ensure they can withstand temperatures in excess of 1200F. The results are permanent and look great.

The first step in restoring a motorcycle exhaust using the XTC system is to ensure the surface to be primed is dry and free from old paint or coatings, dirt, oil, rust, and other contaminants. Sandblasting is the ideal surface preparation as it leaves the ideal anchor pattern for paint adhesion. If you don’t have access to a sandblaster, use a wire wheel, wire brush, or sand using 60-80 grit paper. This will provide a surface equivalent to that provided by sandblasting and allow the desired surface profile or anchor pattern.

Now it’s time to apply the XTC Silicone Zinc Primer. First, wash surface well with KBS Klean at a 10:1 (water to KBS Klean) ratio, rinse and dry thoroughly before proceeding. Mask off areas not to be coated and protect adjacent areas with drop cloth or newspapers. For best results, apply when XTC when room temperatures are between 60-80° F.

XTC Silicone Zinc Primer prevents corrosion of metal surfaces, can withstand temperatures in excess of 1200°F and functions much like galvanization as it locks itself to bare metal surfaces leaving a perfect primed surface for top coating. XTC Silicone Zinc Primer is free of fluorocarbons, lead, and chromates and is grey in color.

XTC Silicone Zinc Primer is available in aerosol spray can form. For larger applications by brush, roller, or spray equipment, XTC Primer is also available in quart, gallon or five-gallon containers. For purposes of this article we will discuss application by aerosol spray can.

Hold the aerosol can 12-15 inches from surface and apply using steady, even strokes. Apply two light coats, allowing 15 minutes drying time between coats. Allow the primed surface to dry a minimum of 30 minutes before top coating with the KBS Xtreme Temperature Coating.

Next comes application of XTC – Xtreme Temperature Coating. XTC is a high temperature/heat resistant motorcycle exhaust coating designed to protect metal surfaces operating at temperatures from 500° F to 1200° F. XTC provides outstanding adhesion, film integrity, weathering, and thermal shock-resistance throughout this entire temperature range and is guaranteed not to burn off. XTC will not peel, flake or chalk and is resistant to scratching or marring. XTC is available in 10 colors which allows you to do some unique styling if you wish.

This motorcycle exhaust coating also has an interesting property in that it acts as an insulator that reduces the surface temperature of the exhaust system. Don’t get us wrong, it will still get hot, but not quite so. The heat is retained with the exhaust system which improves exhaust gas velocity and can increase horsepower.

Like XTC Primer, XTC is available in aerosol spray can form, or in containers for application by brush, roller, or spray equipment. Again, for purposes of this article we will discuss application by aerosol spray can. For best results, apply when spray can, and room temperatures are between 60-80° F. Hold aerosol can 12-15 inches from surface and apply using steady, even strokes. Apply a minimum of two light coats, avoiding drips and runs. Allow 15-30 minutes drying time between coats. Only apply the number of coats needed to get the desired coverage. Do not apply more coats that you need for coverage as this can have adverse consequences. As with all KBS Products, multiple very thin, covering coats is always the best practice as heavy applications can lead to reduced adhesion and coating life. Allow painted surface to dry a minimum of 8 hours before subjecting to high heat.

With the KBS Coatings XTC rust prevention system you can stop rusting, preserve your exhaust system, and make it look great. Plus, consider the cost savings. Would you rather spend $40.00 on KBS motorcycle exhaust coating, or several hundred or thousands of dollars on a new exhaust system?

KBS Fuel Tank Sealer System Removes Rust and Restores the Inside of Your Tank to Like New

KBS Fuel Tank Sealer System Removes Rust and Restores the Inside of Your Tank to Like New

Gas Tank Sealers

Rusting and varnish in a fuel tank can create problems. First, rust can create pin holes from which fuel can leak and it can also weaken seam welds creating a fire hazard. Vehicles with in-tank fuel pumps can have issues as fine rust particles pass through the pump pickup strainer and into the pump causing damage. Further, rust particles can collect in fuel filters restricting fuel flow meaning the vehicle can find itself getting enough fuel at idle, but then not enough when accelerating. Particles can also clog fuel injectors and carburetors. Rust in fuel tanks is more of an issue now than it was in the past since today's ethanol-gasoline blends are more corrosive than non-ethanol gasolines of the past.

If your fuel tank has rust there are two ways fix the problem: Replace the tank with a new one or take steps to clean the inside of the tank, remove the rust, and seal the inside with a fuel tank sealer. Replacement of the fuel tank can be very expensive especially in the case of some classic cars where the tanks are very pricey. And even a new tank that has not been sealed will start to rust causing the same problems. Of note, if you have a diesel vehicle, diesel sludge contamination is another fuel tank issue to consider. Diesel sludge is an algae-like substance that adheres to the tank surface or at the fuel water interface. The sludge settles to the bottom of a fuel tank and can clog filters when the vehicle is fueled. A good tank cleaning will help with this problem.

KBS Coatings offers the simple to use Tank Sealer System as an effective, high-quality and economical solution to clean, de-rust and seal your fuel tank. The KBS Tank Sealer System will stop rust and form a tough, fuel impervious coating while sealing small pinholes and weld seams. Whatever your tank holds will never touch the inside walls of your tank again.

The KBS Tank Sealer System is made up of three components. KBS Klean, RustBlast and Gold Standard Tank Sealer.

KBS Klean is a powerful cleaner that deeply penetrates and removes soil and varnish without leaving harmful residues or emitting noxious fumes. KBS Klean is a super concentrated, water-based, biodegradable formula that is crazy powerful and an excellent alternative to flammable solvents and hazardous chemicals.

KBS Klean is designed to be diluted with water and a full-strength dilution is 1-part water (hot water works best) with 1-part KBS Klean. Pour the bottle and water into the tank, place some metal objects like nuts and bolts in to act as agitators and shake the tank up. Let it soak for 45 minutes then flush with water until suds stop coming out. You can repeat as many times as needed.

The next step is RustBlast, a powerful rust remover, zinc phosphate pre-primer and metal etch. RustBlast effectively dissolves rust, corrosion, metal oxides and tarnish from the inside of the tank. It will etch the surface and leave a zinc phosphate coating to ensure a strong bond with the Tank Sealer. The zinc will protect against flash rust in case the Tank Sealer can’t be applied right away.

When working with RustBlast, leave the agitators, which were used in the previous step, in the tank. Shake the tank thoroughly and let the RustBlast soak for about 45 minutes, rotating the tank around every ten minutes or so to etch all surfaces. Then pour out the RustBlast in a container, but don’t dispose of it yet in case the procedure needs to be repeated. Rinse the tank out well with water and inspect to be sure all the rust is gone. If not, repeat the procedure. After the rust has been removed the tank needs to be thoroughly dried. It’s best to use a heat gun or blow dryer to ensure it is completely dry. Don’t forget to remove the agitators!

The grand finale is application of Gold Standard Tank Sealer, a superior single component, ready-to-use fuel tank sealer formulated for coating the inside of metal, aluminum and fiberglass tanks. Gold Standard Tank Sealer is an easy-to-use single application coating that cures into a tough fuel impervious seal. The entire tank including pinholes and weld seams are permanently sealed to prevent the return of rust and corrosion and clogged carburetors.

After pouring in the Tank Sealer, leave it there for 45-60 minutes. Frequently rolling the tank to be sure it coats all interior surfaces and into the seams. Be sure that all remaining fuel tank sealer is completely drained from the tank as you don’t want to leave any pools. The tank can always be propped up and left to drain. It is very important that the sealant be allowed to cure for four days before putting in any fuel.

Rust and varnish accumulation in fuel tanks is a big problem. The KBS Tank Sealer System is an excellent solution.

The Motorcycle Frame Coater Kit Has Everything Needed to Remove Rust and Prevent Rust In The Future

Rust Preventive Motorcycle Frame Paint – The Motorcycle Frame Coater Kit Has Everything Needed to Remove Rust and Seal Metal Away from Moisture

RustSeal - Rust Prevention RustSeal - Rust Prevention

When restoring a motorcycle, refinishing the frame is a time-consuming process. If the frame is rusty you can count on spending additional time on preparation. Further, once prep is completed, extra care must be taken to ensure further rusting is prevented. KBS Coatings addresses this with the Motorcycle Frame Coater Kit, which is specifically engineered to be user-friendly, reduce labor time and provide a great looking, long-lasting and druable rust preventative finish.

This all-inclusive kit contains KBS Klean to clean to clean the frame, RustBlast to remove surface rust and etch the surface leaving an ideal anchor pattern for paint adhesion, RustSeal which is a rust preventative motorcycle frame paint and BlackTop which is a durable topcoat for a UV stable permanent final finish. KBS #1 Thinner is also included for those who wish to spray rather than brush the RustSeal and BlackTop. This tried and true system has customers raving. The Motorcycle Frame Coater Kit provides coverage for 12.5 square feet of surface area.

The first step of the process is to remove loose or scaly rust and/or paints and coatings with a wire brush, wire wheel or sandpaper. Next scrub the frame with KBS Klean, which provides a clean surface for your motorcycle frame paint job. KBS Klean is a powerful cleaner that deeply penetrates and removes stubborn soil from most surfaces without leaving harmful residues or emitting noxious fumes. KBS Klean is a concentrated, water-based, biodegradable formula that is an excellent alternative to flammable solvents and hazardous chemicals. KBS Klean is designed to be diluted with water and a full-strength dilution is 1-part water with 1-part KBS Klean.

The next step is application of RustBlast, a powerful rust remover, zinc phosphate pre-primer, and metal etch. RustBlast effectively dissolves rust, corrosion, metal oxides, and tarnish from most metal surfaces. It will gently etch the surface and leave a zinc phosphate coating to ensure a strong bond with any paint. RustBlast is applied full strength to a clean surface and needs to be kept wet for at least 30 minutes or more. The RustBlast step is completed by rinsing with water and letting the surface dry thoroughly even the weld spots which tend to hold water.

Now it’s time to apply RustSeal, a rust inhibitive and rust preventative paint that chemically bonds to metal, including rusted metal, to form a flexible yet rock-hard, non-porous barrier. RustSeal will not crack chip or peel. RustSeal is user-friendly and works by isolating metal from moisture and without moisture present, steel can't rust. RustSeal is formulated with fast evaporating solvents that allow the paint to cure quickly and bond to the frame which locks out water and air to avoid rust and corrosion. Slow evaporating solvents are also part of the formulation and remain longer to allow brush marks to flow out. Further, RustSeal contains additives that allow gases, created during the curing process, to escape meaning bubbles don’t form in the applied finish and compromise the appearance and integrity of the coating. RustSeal is incredibly tough and extremely resistant to abrasion and impact yet provides a smooth beautiful finish that resembles the look of a powder coat or ceramic coat. RustSeal can be applied by brush, or with a spray gun. It is recommended to thin RustSeal 5-10% with KBS #1 Thinner using a spray gun. RustSeal is always applied in thin coats and typically, two coats is enough to coat the surface with proper coverage.

The last step in the frame refinishing process is to apply BlackTop Chassis Paint. RustSeal is not intended for use as a final finish when used where the coated surface will be consistently exposed to sunlight. Repeated or prolonged exposure to direct UV light will cause cosmetic alteration to its color and sheen. BlackTop is a permanent, high-performance, moisture-cured and UV stable protective high-performance coating that’s specifically formulated to withstand dulling and fading caused by prolonged sunlight exposure and go right over RustSeal. BlackTop dries to a rock hard yet flexible coating that is incredibly durable. As with RustSeal, BlackTop has superior flow out and leveling and can be applied by brush, or by spray gun when diluted 5-10% with the included #1 Thinner.

With the Motorcycle Frame Coater Kit, you can restore a motorcycle frame with an excellent and long-lasting finish that will look great and prevent rust and corrosion. Your bike will be the talk of all of your buddies!

RustSeal Rust Prevention Formulation Keeps KBS Coatings as the Leader of the Pack

RustSeal - Rust Prevention

At KBS Coatings, superior product performance and user friendliness are our top priorities. KBS Coatings has the best products for rust prevention and we continually look for ways to improve upon them as well as provide features not offered by other manufacturers. For example, RustSeal, which is a high-tech rust prevention coating that uses premium quality materials for state-of-the-art performance, has been continually improved upon by listening to our customers. We learned what they wanted with this type of coating: Quick and easy application, smooth rich deep colors, excellent bonding of the coating to the surface and color variety. Thanks to our on-staff paint chemists, we were able to engineer these qualities into RustSeal.

RustSeal is quick and easy to apply. This is due to the paint “flowing out” well. Flow is the degree to which the wet film of a coating material can flow out during and after application to produce a uniform smooth surface. This is especially important for those times a paint brush needs to be used, such as when painting a car frame while it is attached to the vehicle. Competitors’ coatings often require continually going back to re-brush areas of wet paint to get proper coverage and smooth out brush marks. Because RustSeal has superior flow characteristics it provides great hide and coverage on each coat without the need for frequent re-brushing. So, RustSeal saves you time. Users say the finish resembles the incredible look of a powder coat.

To achieve this, RustSeal is formulated with a blend of solvents. Fast evaporating solvents allow the paint to start to cure quickly and adhere well to the prepped surface locking out water and air and avoiding oxidation (rust and corrosion). In addition to the fast evaporating solvents, slow evaporating solvents remain longer and allow brush marks to flow out giving a beautiful uniform finish. Hi-Tech additives are included to release gases in the paint so micro bubbles don’t form and compromise the appearance of the coating.

RustSeal - Rust Prevention

Availability of a wide variety of colors also differentiates RustSeal from competing corrosion treatments. Other manufacturers typically provide their products only in gloss black, semi-gloss black, silver, and gray. RustSeal is available in ten colors: Gloss Black, Satin Black, Silver, Grey, Off-White, Oxide Red, Green, Cat Yellow, Safety Blue and Galvanized Steel.

RustSeal - Rust Prevention

Coating stability, after the can has been opened, is another important aspect of our paint formulation. Once the can is opened the paint is exposed to ambient moisture in the air which can be absorbed into the paint. For RustSeal, moisture is the catalyst the activates bonding of the paint to the prepped surface. If a significant amount of moisture collects in the stored paint, the shelf life is diminished. While storing RustSeal according to the directions is always best, RustSeal’s formulation includes additives that convert accumulated ambient moisture to a gas which then evaporates out of the coating resulting in extended shelf life for RustSeal.

By listening to our customers’ needs, utilizing on-staff paint chemists and controlling the manufacturing process by producing RustSeal in house, KBS Coatings has developed a unique and user-friendly rust prevention coating with superior performance, flexibility, toughness and incredible impact resistance. RustSeal is the most permanent cost-effective solution for stopping rust and corrosion anyplace where it is a problem: home, automotive, industry, fleet, farm and more.

RustBlast is a Powerful Rust Remover - Keep Surface Wet

DiamondFinish Clear on Fishing Lure

Keep Surface Wet and Then Rinse With Water

This tip for RustBlast is a simple one but just as easily misunderstood. As a powerful rust remover and acid etch, RustBlast will only etch metal and dissolve rust while it remains damp. By letting RustBlast dry before reapplying you might allow an excessive amount of zinc phosphate to build up.

If RustBlast isn't rinsed off (RustBlast should always be rinsed at the end) this excess zinc phosphate can create a barrier that could keep RustSeal from adhering property.

By making sure that you both reapply RustBlast while wet, and rinse RustBlast off when done, you ensure that RustBlast will do the premium job that it's designed to do.

Seal Your Lawnmower Deck To Prevent Grass From Sticking

Remember Your Lawnmowers!

As you are pulling out your lawnmowers and getting them ready for spring, remember that RustSeal on the underside of the deck will prevent rust and the slick surface provided by the RustSeal will prevent grass from sticking to the deck and clogging up the discharge.

Pick a glossy finish like Gloss Black RustSeal for the slickest surface and watch the grass fall right off and not clog up your mower. Because the underside of most mower decks is coarse, we always apply at least 3 thin coats for this application.

+Go HERE to order the System Sampler which contains everything you need to clean, prep, & apply two coats of RustSeal on up to a 12.5 square foot area.

Apply RustSeal In Thin Coats

APPLY RUSTSEAL IN THIN COATS

Remember that RustSeal should be applied in THIN coats. Applying too heavily, will cause running and/or sagging on vertical surfaces, and possible bubbling on horizontal surfaces. As RustSeal cures, it releases a small amount of carbon dioxide. If allowed to "puddle", the top of the RustSeal directly exposed to the ambient humidity in the air (the actual catalyst for RustSeal) will begin to "skin" over. This "skinning over" is much like that of chocolate pudding and blocks the release of the afore mentioned carbon dioxide causing bubbles. By applying thin coats, this film cures through and through all at once.

Tip of the Month – Tank Sealer

PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE THAT WILL BE REWARDED...

Over the years, one of the BEST TIPS that we can give to people who are sealing a tank is to BE PATIENT. Proper prep and sealing IS NOT a lunch hour project. The KBS 3 Step System works perfectly if the Instructions are followed which includes:

  • Be Patient and allow the KBS Klean the time to thoroughly dissolve all the oily fuel residues before rinsing.
  • Be Patient and allow the RustBlast to soak and disintegrate the rust in your tank before rinsing.
  • Be Patient while waiting for the tank interior to dry completely as the tank can NEVER be too dry!
  • Be Patient and allow the tank to cool to room temperature before applying the sealer.
  • Be Patient when sloshing the sealer around to insure complete coverage.
  • Be Patient when draining any & all excess sealer from the tank.
  • Be Patient while waiting for the sealer to cure.

others - Stop Rust - Paint Over Rust

"I wire wheeled the entire tub, used the three stage Chassis kit Chassis Paint Kit - KBS All-In-One Chassis Kit - KBS Coatings - prewash, metal prep, then applied paint with a brush/roller ... I painted the chassis, tub (inside & out), fenders, hood, bumpers and windshield frame.
