Stop rust in its tracks! Rust Encapsulator is the easiest way to stop and prevent rust and corrosion from spreading.

  • Superior durability (tested to 500 hours in a salt-spray chamber)
  • UV Resistance - a topcoat is not needed
  • Penetrates deeper to prevent rust from spreading or forming, even in hard-to-reach areas
  • Requires minimal prep and cures fast
  • Available in convenient spray aerosol or brush on quart and gallon sizes
  • Heat resistant to 400F
  • 2%-10% Gloss Level

Simply wire brush any loose rust, wipe with PRE painting prep to clean the surface and apply. Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has proven to be superior in UV resistance, preventing rust creep, and overall durability.

Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has been tested by an independent lab to be one of the most effective rust-preventive products yet. Rust Encapsulator is a great primer for floor pans and other underbody parts. It fills tiny pin-holes and surface irregularities, and is compatible with lacquer, enamel and urethane topcoats (including Eastwood Chassis Black). For the absolute ultimate rust remedy, first brush or spray-on Eastwood Rust Converter, then prime with Rust Encapsulator. One 15-oz. aerosol covers about 10 sq. ft., and contains no isocyanates. One Gallon covers about 160 Sq Ft. Heat-resistant up to 400°F. Made in the USA.


Use a wire brush to remove loose rust, scale and paint, and remove dust, grease and oil deposits. Wipe down with Pre Painting Prep (10041Z). Feather surrounding paint with 220-grit sandpaper. Shake can for at least 2 minutes once the mixing ball starts to rattle. Hold the Rust Encapsulator can 10-12" above surface as you spray. A single coat dries to the touch in 20 minutes, and is thoroughly dry in 3-4 hours at 68°F. For greater durability, a second coat can be applied 1 hour after the first. Allow 6-8 hours after the last coat before applying topcoat. Use over or under body fillers.

The Rust Encapsulator Quarts and Gallons can be sprayed right out of the can with a conventional HVLP spray gun with a 1.3 - 1.4 tip.


(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 Internal Frame Coating or Heavy-Duty Anti-Rust . These products require minimal prep and will creep into seams and pinch welds.


Work in a well-ventilated area when applying this product. The use of a respirator is recommended. Shake aerosol vigorously for 2 minutes before spraying.


In places where little or no surface prep can be done, our Internal Frame Coating or Heavy-Duty Anti-Rust (16017ZP) is actually a better choice for applying into blind areas such as box sections.
