Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q how toxic are vapors
    Answered by the admin

    There is a lot of solvent vapor. While using this product we suggest wearing an organic vapor mask or respirator.

  2. Q do you have any instructional videos on how to spray kromacote? i.e type of sprayer, size of needle, do you thin it down to work in the sprayer, what do you thin it down with? etc.
    Answered by the admin

    No, we do not. Please call our technical department at 800-445-1754 for assistance.

  3. Q Does this product come in clear? I want to apply this to an old American Standard sink that does not YET have any rust staining (but is close to developing some permanent ones) - I do not want to try and match the white of the sink, I just need to seal the inside of the basin. Does this product come in clear?
    Answered by the admin

    Kromakote 8601-1 is only available in white.

  4. Q Would this be a good candidate to restore a vintage cast iron porcelain double drainboard sink?

  5. Q i also have a hoosier cabinet enamel countertop from the mid 30s with 4 quarter-size holes in the enamel coating. will i have to sand off the existing enamel (or fill the holes with epoxy to level the surface) before applying Kromacote? or can i just apply a few layers Kromacote in the holes then coat the entire surface? I am assuming this will be food-safe once dry?
    Answered by the admin

    The surface should be patched before coating with Kromakote.  We assume the product will be “food safe”,  but we have not researched this.
