Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.Rated 1 out of 5 by Blahblah2107 Poor Tins I bought 10 tins of this, 4 of the tins did not work the spray nozzle had ceized up rendering these useless, because they were black I could not return as the gas released and had black debris on it however paint remains in the can in the bin. 22 October 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Rdstag Use it properly and it is excellent There are some reviews on here that I don't understand, I restore cars and motorbikes and use this all the time with excellent results. Those who have not had good experiences must be doing something wrong! Read the instructions, make sure you shake the can for at least 2 minutes, give the part 3 or 4 coats and it will be excellent. You cannot cover in 1 coat! And also remember if you don't prep your surface you will not get the results you want. If you want to cover a multitude of sins use the brush on hammerite it's a lot thicker. 27 September 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by jamjam24 great stuff and tough i am a mechanic, and do little bits of painting here and there so i am not an expert painter but i found this stuff very good and easy to use. used to paint a rear metal bull bar on a tipper truck, went on well and dried well. minor preparation was required but i wire brushed the rust down and gave it a quick clean, then sprayed this on came out looking sleek and a good tough finish! 10 August 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by StewbieC Worked OK for me I read the negative views on here and I just had to share that it worked fine for me. I've used this product frequently, to refurbish an old cast iron garden bench, to paint brake drums on a classic car and I've found that by numerous thin coats applied every 24 hrs and leaving it a good 48 hrs to cure fully at the end has provided a tough very gloss finish that has lasted well. A minimum of 3 - 4 "thin" coats wasn't translucent, didn't run or drip and looked very good. Shake the tin well, apply the paint in "whisps" and invert the can and a quick spray at the end to keep the nozzle free. It can be bought cheaper elsewhere but have found it always to be in stock at Halfords. 22 July 2016Rated 1 out of 5 by Dan999 if you want a water spray, buy this Utter rubbish! Watery, no black in it and after 4 coats I can still see the dark green Base colour through it. Drips like mad. I will never use this again and going to get my money back. 08 May 2015Rated 1 out of 5 by razzler absolutely rubbish Very watery spray and runs down. Not a good effect at all And a complete waste of money!! 08 May 2015Rated 1 out of 5 by MrNapalm Very Watery Finest of base layers and it was worse than water, it ran straight away. I had used Hammerite spray before (silver) and it was fine... but this Gloss Black is utter rubbish... I used the majority of the can anyway, as I don't care if it doesn't look perfect, but I still expect better quality from Hammerite After this, I won't be using Hammerite again. 02 April 2015Rated 4 out of 5 by Titaniumnuts Worked Ok for me I can't see why others have such a problem with this paint, do your prep and let it dry between coats and its brilliant paint. I did the steel wheels on my van that where very rusty, I gave them a really good rub down with sand paper and cleaned them well, applied three coats ( watch out for any runs ) allowing 15-20 mins between coats and they look stunning. 17 September 2014
