Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has been tested by an independent lab to be one of the most effective rust-preventive products yet (tested to 500 hours in a salt-spray chamber). Red 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. Heat-resistant up to 400 degreesF. Made in the USA.

Rust Encapsulator for Auto Repair Stop rust in its tracks! Eastwood Rust Encapsulator is ideal for parts on project cars that have started to rust, but would be very difficult to replace or fabricate. Simply spray it onto springs, frames, panels and other parts. On properly prepared surfaces that are free of oil and grease, this product seals and stops rust and corrosion from spreading. But it performs even better than our original formula. In fact, our black Rust Encapsulator has been reformulated with TWICE the corrosion resistance! It will also prevent new rust from forming so your parts will remain strong.

Stronger Than Ever If you thought it was good before, wait until you try the newest version of our great anti-rust spray. We fortify our over-rust aerosol with an epoxy that helps it stick to the metal and also helps topcoat paints adhere to the encapsulator. Or you can leave it as is for a cool OEM-black look on your suspension or chassis. The latest formulation is strongly heat-resistant to handle the high operating temperatures of a vehicle and will cure quickly so you can resume your project work.

Outperforms the Competition When tested against well-known brands, Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has proven to be superior in resisting sunlight, preventing rust creep and promoting overall durability. And by using a spray can, you can get to the nooks and crannies that are prone to rusting yet are hard to completely cover with a brush or paint gun. Buy it together with our 1-quart cans of heavy-duty anti-rust and you'll have a full solution to stop rust from eating away at your ride. Eastwood's 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee means you can shop with confidence every time you visit.

FAQs

Q: Can Red 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 16017ZP Heavy-Duty Anti-Rust (Qt.). 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.

Safety Information

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

Want 3 Times More Rust Protection?

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.

Application Tips

Use a wire brush to remove loose rust, scale and paint, and remove dust, grease and oil deposits. 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 degreesF. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rust encapsulation red Great product! I've used rust encapsulation black in the past with great results. I purchased red to simulate Ford red oxide on my 9" differential and was very pleased with the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Restoration on my Old Alfa I started using the encapsulate just for one sector, I found it looked so good and the paint really adhered to the metal decided to do the whole bottom of the car, thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the rust you just can’t get at to remove! Easy to use product and great for places that are difficult to remove all the rust. I used this on the underside of my lawn mower where it is impossible to get all the rust off. Did a great job of encapsulating the remaining rust I could not get to.

Will this work on the bed , over the wheels of a Ram

Asked by: Deadsled tom
It depends on how bad your rust is, for pitted heavy rust we recommend Rust Converter first. Then after it is cured, scuffed and cleaned use the Rust Encapsulator.

Is the red a similar color to the red on older Kennedy toolboxes?

Asked by: Manta
Unfortunately we don't mix this color to necessarily match any existing colors out there. It's simply a red color that we came up with for our Rust Encapsulator.

Is this a flat finish? Can the red encapsulator be used as a final topcoat? I understand red oxide "primers" are not meant to serve as a top coat, only base. Many fords used a red oxide PAINT as OEM final finish underbody, which is what I am replicating.

Asked by: MCM71
This is a flat red finish and can be used as a topcoat.

Can this be used in areas that will eventually have a plate welded over them? (sealed inside)

Asked by: Adam
While Encapsulator can certainly be applied to an area which will be sealed up just keep in mind it isn't designed to withstand welding temps and could burn off leaving the area vulnerable.
