A class action law suit against Rust-Oleum is being handled by Levin, Fishbein, Sedran and Berman in Philadelphia. I received a call from them last week. Daniel C Levin can be contacted at 877-882-1011. They are gathering information about peoples experience. The real cost is to remove this stuff. After it peels and flakes off, about 10-20 percent of it can be removed by power washing, the scraping, then sanding with 80 grit belt sanders and 60 grit orbital sanders. It took myself and a contractor three days to remove the 10X Restore material from 183 sq. ft of deck. This is terrible stuff. I spent a full day sanding this deck before application.

How to remove Rust-Oleum's 10X which is flaking off.
13.75' x 13.50' deck
Power wash to get water under the unadhered paint. Use scrapers, drywall knives, putty knives to do the same. Then take 3x21' belt sander and 5" orbital sander. Use 80 grit sand paper (belts) and 60 grit sanding discs and spend 20 to 30 hours at hard labor. Use the belt sander first to get the big stuff off, then the orbital sander to get down to the wood.

There is a class action lawsuit against Rust-Oleum. I received a call last week confirming that I was having a problem. The law firm is Levin, Fishbein, Sedran and Berman of Philadelphia. Their number is 877-882-1011. Fax 215-592-4663.
I did not ask for a rebate for paint cost from the Home Depot. The real cost is the removal. Hopefully the lawsuit will successfuly reward those who signup and wait.

Its hard but can be done. I can send you photos of my results. First, I asked a contractor friend to give me help on the work involved. When he saw the peeling and flaking, he started with a high pressure wash (3000 psi) and got under some of the decking that was flaking. We used scraping tools and putty knives and were able to get under some of the 10X. But we had to resort to a belt sander (3x12) with 80 grit belts and an orbital sander with 5" circular pads - 60 grit. We have a 13.75' x 13.50 deck. 2x6s fir or spruce, not sure which. but not redwood. By alternatively, washing, scrapping sanding, more scrapping, more washing, we were able to finally get down to white wood. But it took several days. My contractor worked about 4 hrs each day for three days. I would keep working after he left and figure I easily worked three 10 hour days. On each plank our plan was to soften up the 10X with the high pressure water. Then use the belt sander to knock of the tops of craggy 10X, getting it somewhat smoothed down, the hit it with the orbital sander using the 60 grit paper. Figure on at least 20 belts and about 25 5" discs.

By the way the lawyer from Philadelphia called. They are proceeding with the class action suit. Are you aware of this?

My experience same as most others on this comments page. 183 sq ft disaster, flaking, peeling right noticed right after sub-zero weather in Colorado, October. I prepared the surface by sanding previous deck surface with 80 grit 3x21inch belt sander. Applied this material with their special roller, a very difficult application process.
Just removed the 10X Restore material. Took three days more than 40 hours. Pressure washed surface trying to get under the material where peeling started. Then used scrappers of various sizes, then used belt sander, and 5" orbital sander with 60 grit discs. The belt sander 3x21 80 grit was used first to knock down 80% of the 10X that did adhere, the orbital sander was used to get down to the bare wood. This was hard work in 90% heat. At least 20 belts were used and 20 5" discs.

Finally, just completed applying Cabot's Solid Color Latex Acrylic Deck Stain. I have tried emailing and calling the lawyers listed below. No response as yet. It has been a week.
