Rust Encapsulator White 15 ounce Aerosol is rated 4.285714285714286 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lasting coverage ! This is a good encapsulator when applied correctly. As with all Eastwood Rust Encapsulator products some common sense prep is required. You just don't spray it on and walk away. For years I only used their black and then resprayed a color to finish. This white is good as it's applied. No need to spray over it unless you want a different color. I sprayed the underside of a truck hood. It is holding up well against road rash and heat. Highly recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed. I bought this product last fall and painted my door bottoms with it. Rusty areas were wire brushed and then wiped down clean with lacquer thinner and allowed to dry. The paint applied well but was thin and required dozens of coats to get a good coverage and thickness, paint was allowed to dry between coats. Once done the paint was a reasonable color match to my GM's Arctic White and I was happy with the results. Unfortunately the product does not stand up to NH winter and road treatment chemicals and by spring the rust has completely overrun the paint and is probably where it would be if I had done nothing. At this point I don't see this product being a winner in the war on rust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've used the black a lot and love it. The only thing I would say is different with the white is that where I could use the black as the final finish after two coats, the white is just too translucent to act as a final coat the way the black is. Plan to put paint over the top of the white encapsulator to get a truly white finish. This is exactly what you want over rust on a part which will have a light colored finish, just top it off with the paint color of your choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this stuff. Have used the black version in the past, out of a can. I was very happy with the results especially since it was outside with no topcoat. However, shelf life was not infinite. Hated to waste this pricy stuff. So, I bought a spray can of the white.. Hopefully this will solve the shelf life issue. I used it on a white trailer. Went on great,sanded well for topcoat. Saved a lot of coats of primer and white paint to be able to paint white over it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Coverage I purchased about 3 weeks ago and finally got to use some. I need it on me house. It is steel sidings that thru the years of other owners neglect has rusted in places creating eye sore. I used a wire wheel brush electric to knock off the heavy rust and sprayed the white over it. My son and I liked the coverage and the ease of use. Wondered How the Quart or Gallon would cover Using A Spray Gun ..... Worth the Try for the price. I No not whether it will hold up. I intend to purchase additional for other items in white and the black. The temperature was a lil chilly today But the prep was easy and the coating we sprayed two coats. Will Update review thru the winter and spring. We will be painting a Gray over this white in the spring. Great stuff. It encapsulated the rust and none came thru as yet ....... Amazing Coverage .... Will also purchase for the truck, Car, and tractors. As well as the other things needing painted. Thank You For A Great Product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Good useful color, thinner than the old red stand by. Too early to tell how well it performs over time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT IMPRESSED I found multiple coats were required, 4-5 actually to get decent converge. Then I discovered this does not play well with Urethane topcoat. My paint wrinkled and did not adhere well at all. Was forced to strip the project and start over. I never had a problem like this when using POR15 products.

can bedliner be sprayed overtop this product as a tpcoat?

Asked by: copester
The bed liner can be sprayed over top of this product in small areas. We would not recommend using rust encapsulator in an entire bed and then putting the bed liner over it for strength. If the entire bed is rusty consider media blasting it to remove the rust prior to putting on the bed liner.

Can lacquer thinner be used to clean the bare metal, instead of using Pre Paint Prep?

Asked by: Kimbo6
No, only PRE Painting Prep or acetone can be used to wipe down the surface before paint. Lacquer thinner doesn't actually cut the grease, oil, or other contaminants, it only moves them around and leaves a residue behind.

Can the encapsulator be sprayed over clean rust/paint combination surface?  Or do I need to sand away the paint surface down to rusted metal?  

Asked by: Seasn
You should feather back the painted surface until all of the rusted metal is exposed and you begin to see clean metal. Finish feathering back the paint with 220 grit sand paper. Make sure to rough up the rusted surface with at least a wire brush before moving on to topcoat with the encapsulator. Once all that is done just prep the surface with "Pre" surface cleaner and then spray the encapsulator on as per the directions on the can.

What kind of finish does this leave? Is it matt of gloss? I am thinking of just spraying a few rust spots on my plow truck just to clean it up a little and didn't know if I should put a clear over it?

Asked by: Tman
This will provide a matte white finish. Rust Encapsulator is compatible with almost all topcoats, so you will be able to put a gloss finish over it, if you'd like.

(Q) Can Rust Encapsulator be applied with the Undercoating System?
(A) Technically, yes, 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 (16017ZP). This waxy, oily product flows into pinch welds and through rust to seal surfaces from contact with moisture and air, but cannot be painted over, so it's only suitable for inside box sections that don't show. Use lacquer thinner for cleanup.


always wear eye, skin and respirtaory protection. Apply in a well ventilated area away from open flame.
