Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rust encapsulation? Bought a few cans for my 1966 Triumph Spitfire project. Did a good prep. Covered well, dried well, overcoat appeared great. Only question is time will tell..It has only been a few months since completing the project, no signs yet of paint lifting or not adhering to surface. Bought a few more cans for more items. I think will be OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and an excellent base. We painted the inside of my Class 5 Baja with the Red and the outside with the Grey. Coverage was great and I was able to get pretty good control with the rattle can. The red will most likely be the final color for the interior while the grey will hold until I can do a satin red outside.

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.

Can I use this paint on an engine block

Asked by: Michael
Technically you could as the temperature rating is high enough.

Will this product work on the notorious rusty Ford 7.3 L oil pans? The only product I've seen out here, that has a 400 degree F* rating.....Is that enough temp rating for this application? If so?.... Any recommendations on how to prep and apply? Thanks.

Asked by: Kevin B
Yes, this would work on an oil pan. You want to take a wire brush/ disc and remove any loose or scaling rust that you can. Next wipe down the surface with our PRE paint prep and then apply the Rust Encapsulator. If there are any areas with existing paint, in good condition, scuff sand or abrade them with 220-320 grit paper, wipe down with PRE then apply the Encapsulator.

Since the red only comes in an aerosol, I plan to brush in black encapsulator into seams then top coat everything with the red. Is there any compatibility issues in doing this?

Asked by: Jetcat
No issues at all, same formulation just different colors.

Stop rust in its tracks! Our "Red" Rust Encapsulator has been reformulated with TWICE the corrosion resistance!

  • Twice the corrosion resistance of our original formula for greater durability
  • Epoxy-fortified for better adhesion and topcoat compatibility
  • Penetrates deeper to prevent rust from spreading or forming, even in hard-to-reach areas
  • Cures faster
  • 15-oz. aerosol covers about 10 sq. ft.
  • As seen on "My Classic Car" TV show

You thought it was good before...wait ’til you try this Red Rust Encapsulator! It seals and stops rust and corrosion from spreading, but it performs even better than our original formula. Tested against well-known brands, the Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has proven to be superior in sunlight 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 (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.

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.


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.

Eastwood Rust Encapsulator Platinum


(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.


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