Product Description:

KBS Top Coater Aerosol is a superior spray paint formulated for maximum coverage and professional looking results. KBS Top Coater is an ideal top coat paint for RustSeal when the area will be consistently exposed to sunlight.

KBS Top Coater Aerosol is a very high solids paint does not run or sag, and gives at least twice the coverage of conventional spray paints. KBS Top Coater can be applied to bare metal, but for ultmate performance, apply KBS Top Coater over RustSeal.

Theoretical Coverage:

KBS Top Coater 16oz Aerosol should coat up to 38 sq. ft. with 1 coat coverage.

KBS Top Coater 12oz Aerosol should coat up to 30 sq. ft. with 1 coat coverage.

Surface Prep:

FOR THE BEST END RESULTS, apply KBS Top Coater Aerosol to clean and dry surfaces that have been sealed with RustSeal. If needed, use KBS Klean to remove all surface contaminants. (Avoid solvent-based cleaners which leave invisible residues that can affect the adhesion of KBS Top Coater.)

To topcoat freshly painted RustSeal surfaces (between 3 and 8 hours old), apply KBS Top Coater Aerosol directly as no other prep is required. For all other applications, lightly sand/scuff with 320 grit paper then clean and dry surface before applying KBS Top Coater.

Spray Application:

For best results, Apply KBS Top Coater to prepared surfaces as described above. ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES AND EYEWEAR when using KBS Top Coater. Always use NIOSH/MSHA approved air supplied respirator.

For best results, spray at room temperature 50° to 90°F (10° to 32°C). Use only in moderate to dry atmospheric conditions (i.e. 70% humidity or lower). Shake can for at least one minute after listening for rattle or mixing ball. During application, shake intermittently for approximately 10 seconds at 1 to 2 minute intervals.

Press valve all the way down. Do not extend finger beyond the valve. Hold container about 8 to 10 inches from surface to be sprayed. Do not cover with continuous spray. Move back and forth, releasing sprayhead after stroke. Overlap each stroke. If clogging develops, turn sprayhead 1/4 turn or remove and clean sprayhead. Do not stick pin or other objects in to can opening. With sprayhead pointed away from you, reinsert sprayhead with gentle twisting motion.

IMPORTANT: Apply thin coats rather than heavy coats. If paint runs or sags, paint is being applied too heavily or paint can is too close to surface. Apply one or two thin covering coats for general automotive applications. For marine or industrial applications, apply a minimum of 2 - 3 thin covering coats. Recoating can be done once first or consecutive coat is dry-to-touch. For best results, always apply coats consecutively within 24 hours of each coat curing. Average recoat cure times are 1-2 hours depending on humidity levels. Full cure is usually achieved witin 24 hours.

To clear sprayhead for future use, turn can upside down and spray for 3 seconds.


Clean up any overspray with KBS #1 Thinner or lacquer thinner immediately. Always wear protective gloves to avoid skin contact and temporary staining.
