DiamondFinish Clear

Can diamond finish clear be used over rust seal? I'm looking to use rust seal as a color base coat on some automotive components (steering rack, transmission, differential...etc) and use clear to provide the UV protective layer/topcoat?
We do not recommend putting DiamondFinish Clear over RustSeal because although DiamondFinish Clear is absolutely UV stable, DiamondFinish Clear does not block the UV rays from getting through to the RustSeal. Over an extended period of time, DiamondFinish Clear can delaminate from RustSeal when exposed to prolonged sunlight.

We always recommend a solid color UV stable top coat paint (such as BlackTop or KBS MAXX) over RustSeal if RustSeal will be exposed to sunlight.
Can you use Diamondfinish Clear Coat on 1986 fiberglass Bass boat top plate? Has been wet sanded.
Yes. Wipe the fiberglass surface down with KBS Klean. Allow to dry. Then apply the DiamondFinish Clear. It would be best to apply 2-3 coats for a marine application.
What is the recommendation for wet sanding and buffing times on DiamondFinish Clear?
DiamondFinish Clear can be cut and polished as a normal clear coat after 24 hours under normal conditions.
