Product Overview:

Description

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
  • 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.

Warranty

90 Day

FAQs

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 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.

Guides & Accessories

Instructions

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. Brush-apply directly from the can, or thin 20% with lacquer thinner to 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.

Safety Information

Always wear proper eye, skin and respiratory protection. Always paint in a well-ventilated area away from sparks and open flame. Consult MSDS and product data sheets for proper safety precautions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rust Encapsulator covered well Did some rear frame protection on a 96 GMC Z-71 with brush on Rust Encapsulator as well as the aerosol ... bed removed. Both covered very well. Just follow Eastwoods directions on applying as well as initial metal prep for lasting results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Rusty metal Great Rust prevention. I used to use Hammerite but it was prone to peeling. Excellent adherence and longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A high quality product Another good quality product. However I finished sandblasting some fenders and needed more to finish the job. Unfortunately it has been on backorder for two months and I will probably have to re-blast the fenders. This is not the first time that "my time" was put on hold due to inadequate inventory. It seems to me that there needs to be a greater effort concerning merchandising and inventory control. I have encountered this situation more than once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 69 Roadrunner getting a new lease on life. Thanks to Eastwood Tools I do a good bit of shopping with Eastwood tools, an the Rust Encapsulator is great for a little extra insurance when restoring an older car. I wouldn't go any further with out it. Thank you Eastwood.

Questions & Answers

Is it necessary to remove brakelines and wire harnesses when using rust encapsulator

Asked by: Will G
It will not damage either, but it can be challenging to remove from surfaces. So if you don't want paint to drip or overspray on to those I would make sure everything is fully masked that you don't want painted.

I've used brush on POR 15 with amazing results over rust. Is this similar to POR-15 only in aerosol form? I am basically looking for POR-15 in a spray can - something I can spray over rust and it won't come through.

Can I use raptor liner over top of the eastwood rust encapsulator? Or will there be a problem with it adhering to it?

Asked by: Ethan10
Unfortunately, we can not guarantee compatibility between our products and other brands. This is an Epoxy fortified lacquer based coating. We would have to advise you to test a small area first or on scrap metal before applying liberally over everything.

Can this be sprayed over galvanized boat trailer?

Asked by: Erik1973
Yes, you can use Rust Encapsulator on any metal surface with light rust on it. Although our products are NOT tested for marine applications.

Do I need to paint over the encapsulater?

Asked by: Jolo
Technically, this is UV stable and can stand alone. However, if being applied to a high traffic area like the frame- we do recommend top coating it further for added durability. Our Chassis Black paints work very well over this.

Could it be used as a primer for a small set of rims?

Asked by: Harry165
i wouldnt use the encapsulator as a primer for wheels, because you could get a undisirable finish texture. i would sand or blast the wheels clean first, then prime the wheels after they have dried use a high build primer surfacer to get the surface nice and smooth , wet sand to a nice smooth surface . then onto color of your choice.

can i spot treat rusty areas with the Eastwood rust encapsulator black aerosol then prime the spots and bare metal with eastwood extreme chassis black primer then topcoat with extreme chassis black paint

Asked by: 49ford
Yes, you can proceed with this sequence without issues. Or you can apply the Encapsulator over everything and it will act as your primer.
