Where to Buy Rustoleum Brand Paint
Posted 02 April 2010 - 05:34 AM
Do they also sell the "rusty metal primer"?
All I need is basic "flat black". if there are other brands you have had good experiences with, that works as well.

Your best bet to see what's available is to park on Avenida 30 between Calle 1 and Morelos (Las Seras tacqueria is right there at the Morelos intersection). There's a big Comex on the west side of the street between Morelos and 3 on 30 and the Sherwin Williams is one block north on the corner of Calle 1, also west side of the street.
If you don't see what you want out on the shelves, ask for primer para metal (pronounced PREE-mer pah-ra may-TALL) espray (es-SPRAY). Cans should say anti-corrosivo also, by the way just to double check. (AH-tee coh-ROW-see-voh)

As Carey said Comex and Sherwin Williams are two good places to try. I stopped at Comex and bought five gallons of latex for repainting the outside of our house and a quart of oil base for painting the banisters in the stairwell a few weeks ago. Wasn't really looking for spray paint.

I've done the stick the paint in the bag trick a few times. I was hoping it would be easier to get it on the island.
I have several cans of Rustoleum there, just none in basic black. Looks like a bag drag item.

Paint section, top shelve.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

It is closer to what I would have used in the states,stronger and faster drying.
How about acetone (a type of thinner ) anyone seen that here?

i bought some and used it on my gates. got white and the navy blue. rust spots showing right thru. we even did a primer with 3 or 4 coats. so not so good IMHO for that application. gonna have to do a do over with the regular stuff.
however, for my hurricane protection plywood, i painted them with this stuff and the great thing is that it dries very fast, no fumes or odor, and the brushes wash off with soap and water, as do your hands. 2 coats was more than enough and it can be diluted with up to 10% water.
so if you go to sherwin williams, i would avoid the acrilic esmalte for OUTDOOR metal projects.
