Repair rusty powder coated patio furniture

Is it possible to use naval jelly or rustoleum to treat the rust before painting over the powder coating? Can I even paint over the powder coating; and if so, what kind of paint?
Thanks

The local paint store should have a brown color oil type rust primer for such a thing. But rust never sleeps. Outside furniture is hard to keep this down.

As nagra4s states. rust never sleeps. You will need to remove the powder coat beyond the visible rust, to see how far it has crept under the coating. After priming with a rust inhibitor, you can use any paint which will adhere to plastic.
Power coat is powdered plastic which is sprayed onto the metal and then melted by heat to form the coat. The powdered plastic sticks to the metal by an electrostatic charge until it is heated, melts, and forms the coat.

Note that Naval Jelly and Rustoleum are two very different products designed to do two very different things.Naval Jelly is a rust removing product.That is all it does.It does nothing to recoat or protect a surface.

Rustoleum is a brand name for a large line of paint products.Within the Rustoleum product line is a specific primer for your specific needs.Just painting something with a can that says Rustoleum is not enough.You'd want Rusty Metal Primer.

I could delve even deeper into the details of both of these brand names but basically this is enough info for your project.
