    Appears to be a perfect match! It took two attempts to get the correct color since we weren't sure who manufactured the 1950's vintage tub. I was only billed once. In the end, the color appears to be a perfect match. Jury is still out on longevity. The folks at Period Bath were very helpful, as was the manufacturer (Fixture Fix). Most importantly, my client is very happy with the results.

    Perfect match I am very impressed with this product. After sending a color card, I received my sample in the mail and the color matches perfect. Easy to apply, fast drying. Couldn't be happier with this product. Customer service was fast and friendly as well. Definately a well deserved 5 star rating from a very satisfied customer.

    Porcelain repair paint. Chipped the paint pretty bad on my 1956 tub. Used the paint. worked really well. I did not order the correct color. my own fault. But i can live with the repair being a slightly different color. It was a thicker paint than what i thought it was going to be, it filled in really nice. Used 400 grit sandpaper to feather it in. Nice product. Hopefully it will last.

Frequently Asked Questions about Porc-A-Fix and Related Products


Can you mail me a color chart?


No, sorry but we do not have a printed color chart. Here is a link to a very helpful site with colors from different plumbing vendors that you can filter. So if you know the manufacturer of your item this is a great resource. This site sells toilet seats but the color matching tool they use is helpful in identifying vintage colors.

Please note: Colors on a website or printed from a website can vary drastically from the actual color of the item due to monitor and printer settings.


None of these is the manufacturer of my item. Help!


Color-matched glazes can be created for most colors of kitchen and bath fixtures - old or new - from the fixture manufacturers/designers listed below: Admiral, American Standard, Artesian, Bootz, Borg Warner, Briggs, Caloric, Crane, Eljer-Murray, Geberit, General Electric, Gerber, Julien, Kilgore, Kohler, Mansfield, Nationaline, Niagara, Norris, Peerless, Rheem-Richmond, Rohl (Shaws and Allia), Tappan, Toto, Universal-Rundle, Villeroy & Boch, Vintage Tub & Bath, Westinghouse, Whitehaus Collection Email us for details.


Can I email you a picture of my chipped item for you to identify the color for me?


No. Colors on a computer screen can vary drastically from the actual color of the item due to ambient light, flash, monitor and printer settings. We are not able to identify colors accurately using photos sent to us.


My chipped sink is white. Which white do I choose?


All whites are not the same! Each manufacturer uses a different shade of white. So knowing the manufacturer of your sink (or tub or toilet) is going to be the key to getting the correct white.


I dont know the manufacturer of my sink (or tub or toilet). How do I figure that out?


Look underneath your sink to see if there is a manufacturer name, or a number, or letters, or a combination.


If you have a matching toilet, look on the inside of the toilet tank lid to see if there is a name, or some identifying letters or numbers, or a combination of these. Email them to us and we can help you identify the manufacturer and color.


If you dont have a matching toilet and there are no names, numbers, or letters on the underside of your sink, go to your local hardware store and pick up some paint sample cards in the color of your chipped item. Match the color as closely as possible and send your paint sample card to us at Historic Houseparts, Inc. 540 South Avenue, Rochester, NY 14620. Include the following information: Your name, shipping address, phone number, and email address. Well contact you with a color suggestion.


My chip is pretty big. How do I fix it?


For deep chips and gouges, you should have Fill-A-Fix on-hand to apply before using Porc-A-Fix as the top coat. Porc-A-Fix will match the color of your fixture to complete the repair.


My tub was refinished. Which white do I use?


If you are repairing a previously refinished white fixture, you should order BS-1 Basic White Porc-A-Fix. Test the glaze in a small area first, to make sure there is no reaction between Porc-A-Fix and the tub material that might cause the refinishing material to soften or peel.


I got some porc-a-fix on my floor. How do I clean it up?


Porc-A-Fix should not need to be thinned for use, but you can thin it or clean up residue with acetone. Acetone (the primary ingredient in nail polish remover) is flammable, can burn or irritate skin, and can be harmful if ingested or inhaled. Follow all appropriate precautions suggested by its manufacturer.

Application Instructions
Preparation
Ensure that the damaged area and surrounding surface are clean and dry - free of dust, dirt, grease, soap residue, wax and cleaners.
Though not necessary, for a stronger bond you can carefully rough up the damaged area with the enclosed finishing paper (220 grit aluminum oxide sandpaper). The small cut of 1" x 3" allows more selective sanding of small repair areas.
For deep chips and gouges, you should first fill them with Fill-A-Fix before using Porc-A-Fix.
Repair
Shake the bottle for at least 30 seconds and allow it to sit for at least one minute prior to opening the cap. This will allow excess material on the cap or brush to roll back into the bottle. Open the cap carefully, making sure to wipe off any excess material on the lip of the bottle with a cloth.
Apply in thin layers, allowing at least one hour drying time between coats. The drying time can be decreased to several minutes by using a hand held hair dryer on the coolest setting, held at least one foot away from the repair. Use a back and forth fanning motion with the hair dryer - do not hold it stationary over one area.
Dry for 24 hours after the last layer is applied. If any brush marks remain, or if any debris has settled into the repair, sand very lightly after drying to remove these imperfections. You may use the enclosed 220-grit finishing paper, or use additional paper of similar or finer grit as you deem fit.
Finish. You may first fine-finish the repaired area with 360-600 grit silicon carbide sandpaper to save buffing time. If you do, sand just until the glaze is smooth with the surrounding porcelain, gently to avoid sanding through the glaze. Note: for many minor repairs, sanding after the final coat may not be necessary.
Then buff the repair and surrounding area with a soft cloth and a bit of automotive polishing compound.
Post-Operative Care For routine cleaning of the repaired area, use a mild liquid abrasive or dishwashing liquid; we recommend this not only for the repaired area, but for the entire fixture. Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on the repaired area. This will reduce the chance of scratches from surface dirt or abrasion.
