It’s a normal, natural process because the dye does not get all over the paint. If the dye runs down your paint, it will rub against the surface of the paint like your hands would. This causes tiny bubbles to form on the surface that are not really there, causing the paint to swell up and get wrinkly.
If you can’t find our Rustoleum paint to be slightly darker, this is probably why. If you have a very dark Rustoleum paint, you can use our White Rustoleum paint for the same effects. We also have white and dark colors that you can try to save the color that will be fading off your white Rustoleum paint.
What is white Rustoleum paint used for?
Our White Rustoleum is used exclusively for painting surfaces that have white rustoleum color on them that will be fading off at the rate you’ll see in the video below. It is also commonly used in the automotive, food manufacturing, and food services industries to create a clear or frosty coating for all white food/industrial surfaces. It also works well to protect metal surfaces against rust, corrosion, and tarnishing.
Why are some of my white Rustoleum coatings showing signs of tarnish?
This is simply due to the amount of Rustoleum used. Rustoleum is a natural pigmented mineral powder that is very effective in protecting your paint. It doesn’t oxidize to any other color, it is safe for most food containers, paints, plastics, and paper. But, it can get a little funky if you are using too much of the dye. If a small amount of the dye has run off, it can lead to more problems over time.
The best remedy is a good paint correction spray such as our Rustoleum Paint Corrector Spray which will be available in January of 2016. A good primer of the correct Rustoleum paint will also help to protect against rust and corrosion in the long run.
Does white Rustoleum paint go bad?
If using the White Rustoleum on a paint that isn’t already past its prime and is going to lose a little color, it will not get to a state where most people are happy.
We encourage you to keep using the dye as long as it is used correctly. But if you have a clear Rustoleum paint of average to poor quality that you are trying to restore, we suggest that you check the Rustoleum
