Rustoleum is a chemical product designed to protect or enhance the finish of wood surfaces. It works because it is chemically inactive. This means no reactive metals are present, meaning no corrosive and/or reactive substances are available to react. When you paint and varnish the wood, the rust does not adhere to the finish.
Are there any dangers associated with rustoleum?
Not at present. All of the chemicals contained in rustoleum (i.e. acrylate) bind to the oxygen in the air and then slowly and carefully release the oxygen in the air that is now in an oxidized state, and thus, prevent the rust from re-forming.
Can I use rustoleum on the same surfaces as the lacquer (layers) on a table or cabinet?
No, rustoleum should not be applied to furniture, as that can damage the lacquer layer and affect its durability.
Why do I get an oily film on my furniture?
Rustoleum is a chemical that is chemically inactive which gives rust an unusual oily finish. To prevent it from affecting the lacquer, avoid applying any other chemicals unless it can also be removed by vacuum cleaner. However, it is not necessary to clean up this oily film on the interior finish of the furniture. If some residual oil still remains on the inside, it can be wiped off before painting. Once the paint has dried, the residue will disappear. This method will also keep the residual oil away from your furniture.
What are the potential issues with rustoleum?
While there are no side effects associated with using rustoleum, it is not 100% safe. The chemicals can bond with the surface and allow them to migrate downward upon contact with moisture, water, heat or cold. These chemicals can accumulate on surfaces and in the pores of the wood, increasing the likelihood they can react with metal corrosion, particularly if the wood has been exposed to water, a solvent or sunlight.
What is the treatment for using rustoleum on furniture?
It is not necessary to clean the exterior of furniture before applying this product, as there is no way to get the chemical out of the surface. However, there are some steps involved so it is important you can easily remove it after washing.
How do I remove the chemical from a surface?
Remove the stain by thoroughly soaking the stain or lacquer with warm water. Be sure to soak long enough that
