Took my new dozer blade and Wire-brushed it with my 4.5 " grinder and knotted brush. Usually cleans good. This time just kinda took off the top rust and junk, left most of the black paint, but also left it smooth. So, thought, just gonna paint.  Then figure it will all rust thru soon if I do that. Remembered I had some Por 15 in cabinet. Those little six packs I bought one about 15yrs ago when I was messing with old trucks. Rumor says once open, the lid will never open again w/out destroying it.  Yes, found that to be true. Ripped it off in pieces with pliers. Then I did this whole blade, both sides with just that one little can!  had tiny bit left, was gonna just throw-out, but then tried it on my old rusty 990 muffler on the wreck not running yet. Wonder if it will burn off? Then after a few misses and messes getting on my hands, went to clean up. Yes, like they say, no come off, just gotta wear it. BUT, I tried Laq thinner on a rag and rubbed all over and NOW my whole hands are black in all the grooves and prints of the skin. Will be trying to put black paint on it next, they say it needs covered or turns yucky. Takes a long time to dray too, best overnight or a day or two. Another Truth!

I have not used that yet, but there is plenty of times when I should of. Look at it this way, you can get the paint on your hands and won't even notice.

The por product line ones a good job, but just be careful the fumes. Sickest I've ever been were the two times I got into them.
May be just me, but use lots of ventilation IMHO.

Yes you should top coat. The black original stuff turns a faded, chalky white fairly quick and the original silver yellows pretty bad.
As far as drying, the more humid it is the faster it dries.
And they're not kidding about wearing it off your hands. The last time I used some the paint that got on my fingernails lasted nearly a month.

I wonder how it will hold up on the face of the dozer blade.

Are you guys speaking of the Por 15 rust converter?  If I ever get to redoing my Bush Hog brand 3pt bush hog 42" mower, I'd rather treat than blast the whole thing.

My daughter wants to know how many coats you applied. :poke:

Used POR15 on the bottom of a replacement Roper deck, probably close to 20 years ago.
suprisingly most of that coating is still there. The best I remember I put two coats on and let it dry several days. I am rebuilding a deck for a Snapper YT, and I've got to get some more to coat it. johnwesley

I just knew someone would catch that.
Let me rephrase that. The coating that gets on the skin wears off after a few days but on the fingernails, with less skin oils to mess with the adhesion, it can last a month.

It's not a converter, it's more of a coating that seals the rust. It's not porous like a paint so no air or moisture gets in to make the rust re-emerge and spread. Just as with any paint or coating, the proper prep work makes all the difference.

I've never treid it, heard great hings about it. Only drawback I've ever heard if surface wasn't prepped right it could come off and if it does, usually comes off in large pieces. Well, that and they don't get it on you :D  I was going to try the Zero rust brand, similar product, but doesn't have the hazardous isocyanants in it like Por15.

Been thinking about this for the underside of a worker Deere 41 deck.  I used it to tame some radiator support rust rust on my daily driver.
