What are your instructions for RUBBERcomp brush painting?

Thinning is not necessary in brush application because the surface becomes quite smooth even without thinning. We always recommend applying several layers in order for the film to be thick enough. The coverage is approximately 6–8 m² per liter applied once on a smooth surface.

Does RUBBERcomp stick on EPDM rubber?

RUBBERcomp has a soft surface so it does not tolerate hard wear and tear or continuous abrasion very well. Its adhesive qualities are excellent, so it sticks well on EPDM rubber. It has quite similar characteristics to EPDM but it is a bit more elastic, more limited in its weather and ozone resistance, and better in its durability and gas tightness.

The product information reads: “remains flexible throughout its life cycle and does not crack or deteriorate even in the harshest of conditions.” What is the assumed life cycle?

The life cycle of RUBBERcomp depends on where the coating is done. For instance, a thick coating sprayed on a car lasts a few years. However, the coating is not permanent.

How does RUBBERcomp react to e.g. Maston gloss lacquer or other standard paint?

The paint can no longer be removed. It becomes an ‘ordinary’ paint. We recommend using RUBBERcomp transparent high gloss, a matt spray or canned paint.

Can I apply high gloss RUBBERcomp on semi-gloss black RUBBERcomp?

Yes, you can. It makes the surface glossy. Take a 10–20 minute break in between, until the surface is dust-dry.

I painted a surface with RUBBERcomp and now it has this orange-like surface. Why is this?

With Maston RUBBERcomp, the maximum painting range is 20 cm. We recommend keeping a distance of 15–20 cm, applying paint very thinly and painting at least four layers.

Which cleaning agents would you recommend for rims painted with RUBBERcomp?

RUBBERComp is a 1-component paint that should not be cleaned with strong degreasers or cleaning agents with high pH values. We recommend car shampoos and water.
