Rust Encapsulator Black Qt. is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I find uses for this stuff I have used many products over that last 30 years to handle rust issues, but this is my favorite. Clean the rusty metal, paint, and you have a great surface to leave or prep for additional work. I started using this on my cars, but have since used it all around the home. I recommend it to everyone and with few exceptions it is my go to rust product. The spray version in black work great also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rust encapsulator product Applies very well and provides a nice base to work with and dries quickly . Working on 71 Pontiac and 65 Nova and I would purchase this again without question. It met expectation and beyond and could not be happier. I bought multiple items, Engine compartment paint, seam sealer etc. Worth every penny in results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like new I used this to refinish the floor boards, package tray, and inner walls of my 1967 Chevelle. This stuff worked great. It applied nicely and only took a small amount to cover the work area. I did a little more than wire brushing the area, but it was worth it. My floors look brand new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I purchased a quart to do the firewall on my mustang that had been sitting outside in the weather for two years. well after a wire wheel and some light sanding. painted on rust encapsulator and looks brand new. I would also recomend two coats. 1 coat is kind of thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. WOW! I've been using some of the old stuff (red) that I like because it would dry faster than POR-15. But this new encapsulator dries even faster - in just a few minutes. I don't have to stop working (stop creating dust) for 24 hours as with POR-15.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of Rust Encapsulator Black Qt. I have been reworking the sheet metal on my 1973 Mustang Hardtop and wanted a good product to seal up the work. We used it on the floor pans and in the trunk section. Very easy to spray and recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product for the price! This product is as good if not better than some of the other name brand products on the market and at a better price. I am thoroughly impressed with Eastwood's products and their excellent service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Treats rust in hard to reach areas. Great penetration into rusty areas behind the dash and inside the window pillars. I used a flexible spray gun to get into the pillars. You must wear gloves or you will wear the paint for a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Love the flat color used it all over my 1967 Mustang cant top coat it because I love the color it dries to. Have used Por before but to hard to deal with this product is much easer to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More satin than flat black but still spot on... Great product indeed and quite easy to apply... Only observation was that the flat black was more satin in sheen than preferred.

About Rust Encapsulator Black Qt.

Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has been tested by an independent lab to be the most effective rust preventive product yet. Tested against well-known brands, the Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has proven to be superior in sunlight resistance, preventing rust creep, and overall durability. One quart covers about 50 sq. ft. with a double coat. Can be thinned up to 20% with lacquer thinner for spraying. Contains no isocyanates. Heat resistant up to 400 F. Made in the USA. Buy 3 or more and save.


One quart of Rust Encapsulator, enough to coat up to 50 feet with a double coat.


Heavy-duty Anti Rust Qt. (16017 Z P) is actually superior for applying into blind areas such as box sections where little or no surface prep can be done. Buy 3 or more and SAVE!


Rust Encapsulator can be applied with the Undercoating System, but this application isn't recommended because Rust Encapsulator requires surface to be free of grease, oil, and loose rust. The best product to coat inside box sections is the Heavy Duty Anti-Rust (16017 ZP). This waxy, oily product flows into pinch welds & through rust to seal surface from contact with moisture & air, but cannot be painted over so is only suitable for inside box sections that don't show. Use lacquer thinner for cleanup.


Work in a well ventilated area when applying this product. The use of a respirator like our Professional Respirator (34029) is recommended when applying this coating.




Wire Brush to remove loose rust, scale and paint. Remove dust, grease, oil deposites. Thoroughly stir can contents to assure complete mixing. Feather surrounding paint with 220 grit sandpaper. Brush apply directly from the can or thin 20% w/lacquer thinner to spray. Single coats dry to the touch in 20 minutes and are thoroughly dry in 3-4 hours at 68 degrees F. For greater durability a second coat can be applied one hour after the first. Allow 6-8 hours after last coat before applying top coat. See can label for more details.
