Q: Looking to brush this on and wanted to know what type of thinning agent I would need?

Asked by: Dan - 7/22/2014
A: Thinning is not generally required but if needed 5%-10% is normally adequate. Use KBS #1 Thinner only which is a slow evaporating solvent.

Q: Do you need to primer, or use a prep coating on the motor first?

Asked by: Bob - 2/17/2019
A: As long as the motor has been cleaned well with KBS Klean, you can simply apply Motor Coater with no primer necessary. If you need rust protection, we always recommend cleaning with KBS Klean, etching with RustBlast and then RustSeal (which can be brushed on) as the primer (at least 2 thin coats) and then Motor Coater. The other benefit to applying RustSeal before Motor Coater is that RustSeal helps to smooth out what is typically a rough surface of the motor making the Motor Coater look amazing when it is brushed over that newly smooth surface.
