In January 2020, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Rust-Oleum for allegedly misleadingly marketing Restore products – including 2X One Coat Solid Stain and 4X Deck Coat – as being thicker than ordinary paint and providing superior protection when, according to plaintiffs, the products cannot withstand harsh weather, are not superior, and prematurely crack, peel, bubble, flake, and chip. In addition, the plaintiffs claim that company misleadingly represents that Restore 2X is effective after applying only one coat to a deck’s surface when, according to the complaint, certain protections in the product only work if two coats are applied. (Garrard et al v. Rust-Oleum Corp., Case No. 20-cv-612, N. D. Ill.)
