Rust on a classic car is the bane of every enthusiast’s existence. Even Corvette owners have dealt with it. When it comes to preventing or neutralizing rust, POR-15 is about as well-known as it gets. There isn’t a restoration shop or home do-it-yourselfer that hasn’t used the product. Why? Because it works.

The original POR-15 is a rust-preventive paint designed to be applied directly on rusted metal surfaces. It dries to a rock-hard, non-porous finish that won’t chip, crack, or peel. It also prevents rust from reoccurring by protecting metal from further exposure to moisture.


Do you prefer the traditional, glossy clearcoat, or the Matte. Thanks to POR Products, you have a choice

But, POR-15 has upped their game by introducing a spray on, Clear Matte clearcoat finish that creates a great look. “It is a true, automotive clearcoat, but keeps a low sheen, said Nick Anagnostis. “The low sheen is great for custom looks, it’s 50-state compliant, and we’re not using any matting agents to get the low sheen.”

Another great item coming out of the POR camp is a true rust bath designed for soaking parts. “depending on the level of corrosion, you let the rusted part soak in the bath for a length of time, which depends on the level of rust, and when you bring it out of the bath, you have a shiny piece that looks like new, and till has its integrity,” Nick said.

So, when it’s time to deal with rust, or when you want to create a custom look with a low gloss, check out POR-15.
