RustSeal Overview

RustSeal - Stop Rust - Paint Over Rust

RustSeal is an incredible, single-component, ready-to-use, high solids content, rust preventive coating with exceptional sealing properties.

No other brand is tougher on rust! Using premium quality materials & advanced color formulations, this high tech performance coating is the present-day answer for 21st century rust protection.

RustSeal is the most permanent cost-effective solution for stopping rust & corrosion anyplace where it is a problem: home, automotive, industry, fleet, farm & more!

Unlike other corrosion treatments, RustSeal is an enhancement that lasts. Water and air are locked out, therefore oxidation, the precursor to rust, cannot take hold.

It’s technology that’s unbeatable! Satisfaction guaranteed!

Features

  • High surface tolerance for many different types of applications
  • Apply directly over treated rust
  • Single component formula
  • High solids content
  • Widest array of (10) non-porous color formulas
  • Combines with atmospheric moisture to cure
  • Excellent surface penetration and adhesion
  • Forms permanent non-porous barrier against moisture and oxygen
  • Waterproof coating strengthened by repeated exposure to moisture
  • Mold and mildew resistant
  • High abrasion and chemical resistance
  • Repels fuels, oils, most acids & alkalis, and graffiti
  • Will not crack, flake or peel
  • Withstands temps up to 600°F (316°C)
  • Brush, roll or spray application
  • Superior flow and leveling
  • Flexible coating allowing expansion and contraction
  • Compatible with all paint systems
  • VOC compliant
  • Lead-Free

Note: RustSeal is not intended for use as a final finish. Repeated or prolonged exposure to direct UV light will cause cosmetic alteration to its color and sheen. RustSeal’s guaranteed rust protective properties, however, will not degrade. In areas not exposed to direct UV light, like the underside of a car, RustSeal will seal as well as serve as a great looking final finish. To protect against unwanted cosmetic changes, topcoat RustSeal with any opaque (solid color) paint system. Please note that a clear topcoat cannot provide the needed UV protection. Choose the closest color associated RustSeal primer to compliment your topcoat and protect against potential visible surface chips.

RustSeal Applications

Automotive: chassis • floor pans • wheel wells fenders • trunks • engines • suspension parts • axles • roof drains • springs • doors • almost every part on a car except the exhaust!

Questions and Answers

Q: I understand that RustSeal should be top coated if it will be consistently exposed to sunlight. So, how do I top coat RustSeal with a top coat paint so that the top coat paint adheres?

Asked by:  - 8/31/2013

A: There are three effective ways to top coat RustSeal effectively so that the coatings bond & fuse together.

1) Apply your top coat once the second or final coat of RustSeal is dry-to-the-touch and does not leave a fingerprint (usually 3-10 hours depending on temperature and humidity).

2) Let the second or final coat of RustSeal fully cure (at least 24 hours), scuff the RustSeal with 300 grit, then apply your top coat.

3) Let the second or final coat of RustSeal fully cure (at least 24 hours), dust the RustSeal with Fusion Self-Etching Primer (http://www.kbs-coatings.com/fusion-self-etch-primer.html), let the Fusion cure for 30 minutes, then apply your top coat.

You can feel free to choose the method that will work for you.

I want to recoat everything with your product. If I clean/degrease with your product and the etch like you instructed can I apply the rustSeal on the original floor paint?

Asked by:  - 2/10/2014

Q: Can I use lacquer thinner to thin RustSeal for spraying?

Asked by:  - 9/4/2013

A: We do not recommend using lacquer thinner for thinning RustSeal as it is incompatible. However, lacquer thinner can be used for clean up.

For thinning, we recommend using KBS #1 Thinner.

RustSeal worked well and dried to a hard durable surface. Even when applied with a brush the paint flowed out to a smooth finish.

Once again, you've exceeded my expectations with this product. It brushes on very easy and bonds/seals up your metal. I've used this product on the floor pans top/bottom, inner fenders, wheel wells and under the hood of my 1947 Willys CJ2A. It also covers up a lot of minor imperfections.

WARNING: Wear goggles and gloves. If you get this is your eyes, you will never get it out. Literally. Takes 2 weeks to get off your hands. Product is amazing but potentially extremely dangerous is you are painting under a car. NEVER lie on the floor and paint the under side of your chasis unless you have sealed goggles on.

Rating Rust Seal Bullet-Proofed A Rear Differential
 
It has been a year since I used a Rust Seal Kit to seal a rear differential cover on my 2001 4Runner. Diff fluid was pinhole leaking in several areas through a horribly rusted diff cover...Kleen...Blast...Spray...DONE!!! Four coats and extra to coat beyond the problem area. SOLID!!! NE Ohio winters are brutal with the salt on the roads. It looks like the day I applied it.

Rating Exceeded my expectations
 
I really did not think it would work as well as it did. My 1983 Dodge W250 was nothing but rust, especially being an Ohio truck. I completely restored it and used KBS rust seal on the entire frame with blacktop to prevent fading and it looks amazing. If you do the prep work it will pay off big time, I've been daily driving my truck for over a year and there hasn't been any chipping or fading, I love when a product actually works
