Rusto 2X Lawsuit

Daryl White, Jr., v. Rust-Oleum Corporation (Case No. 16AC-CC00533) 
If you purchased Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint Products in the United States, you may be entitled to a cash benefit as part of a proposed class action settlement.
Rust-Oleum denies any wrongdoing. It contends that the Products were truthfully marketed and labeled.
The Action contends that the Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint Products were improperly labeled as providing twice the coverage of competing brands. The Action seeks a court order to preclude such marketing and to refund customers a portion of the purchase price.
This class action Settlement will resolve a lawsuit against Rust-Oleum Corporation (“Rust-Oleum” or “Defendant”). It affects all natural Persons who, between December 12, 2011 and May 30, 2017, purchased, in the United States, for personal use and not for resale, Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint Products, including: Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover 2X spray paint, Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch 2X Ultra Cover spray paint, Rust-Oleum PaintPlus Ultra Cover 2X spray paint, Rust-Oleum American Accents Ultra Cover 2X spray paint, and Rust-Oleum American Accents 2X Ultra Cover spray paint.

This says nothing about the cottage cheese that sprays out of their gloss white cans or the wrinkles that happen when you don't wait the right time between coats.
So . . . If you don't think the 2X spray is actually a 2x coverage you could get a class action refund of almost $4.00!


  1. Whoa...

    I never really believed you'd get twice the coverage, though Rusto does seem a little less translucent than other brands, so you need fewer coats.

    But I also feel like the coats go on heavier, so maybe there's more volume coming out of the nozzle with each pass.

    I've even had Scotch tape mask lines tear as I peel them up from a top coat.

    1. So Darryl White Jr knew it would take 12 cans of Krylon to paint his tractor so he bought 6 cans of Rusto 2x and felt cheated.
