POR 15 or Rust Bullet?

I have been looking at a hand-full of forums over the past few weeks. I couldn't help but notice the amount of people talking about rust preventive paint, and which one is the best.
Most discussions were about Por 15 against Rust Bullet. Some people were saying they preferred Rust Bullet, but the paint of choice seemed to be Por 15.
We at Frost couldn't help but agree in this case, due to the amount of positive customer feedback we get, claiming Por 15 is the Best!
Many of our customers have commented on the durability of POR 15, saying that it is "nigh impossible to chip the coating even when it is really hit with a hammer"!

Have your say, and please comment below, letting us know your thoughts.


  1. I have used POR-15, and it worked OK on parts that were totally accessible for the cleaning and prep required, but for parts still on the car, it was a total mess to use. You must first use Marine Clean, then wash and dry. Then the metal treatment, wash and dry, and then (finally) apply the POR-15. If it was not done totally and exactly correct, the stuff did not stick, but did peel off. Also, how can I believe you are being totally impartial since you sell POR-15 and not Rust Bullet?

  2. No paint, including Rust Bullet will work on a dirty oily greasy surface. Por 15 can be painted onto any rusty surface so long as the surface is free from oil or grease without the use of metal ready. On clean bare metal it is reccommended to use Metal Ready to ensure a keyed surface before applying the POR15.
