Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My #1 choice Very satisfied with this product. Actually used it as well as another similar big name product, and I thought Eastwood's Platinum Rust encapsulator went on better. Very satisfied with the finished product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rust Encapsulator easy application Used on my project Jeep YJ, application was easy, if you spray with HVLP gun you are going to want to thin it a little, covers nicely, top coated with extreme chassis black. We will see how it holds up but I’m confident it will do well. Pleased with the product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Easy to apply. Had to scrub a tiny spot off for a welding contact. I was impressed with how strongly the paint was attached. I'd buy more for another project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood products have always worked for me Sprayed well (I thinned it with recommended product I believe it was xylene) using my HVLP unit 2.0 mm nozzle on custom frame I built then covered with Chassis Black. I have put cab plus body on and off for test fitting a dozen times. Chassis black scratched off in a few places but encapsulator stayed in place even with hard heavy scrapes from metal cab and panels. This stuff is tenacious. I will come back and touch up the chassis black paint on the final assembly. I used this product instead of powder coating because I can (and have) repair any additional welds or adjustments during the project and that would not happen with Powdercoat. I think it’s just about as tough as powder coat. Could have left it silver just put the black on for looks. I have also brushed on cab floor and on rust repair inside tailgate on my early Bronco. Brushes on thick, dries hard. I just bought two more gallons so that’s 3 gallons total and I still like it. I am going to spray the entire inside of the cab and the bottom of the cab before I use seam sealer and then follow up with sound proof spray. Got started on Eastwood products a while back and every one I use just locks me in a little tighter, I’ve come to trust them. I just order it online website, they ship it, and I use it. I have called maybe 10 or 15 times for technical support or when I had any kind of problem with a product. They always answer the phone and they’re reasonable and technical service gives me free great advice on how to use their products right. I really like that there are companies like this in America today still. I will probably paint the project myself and I know there’s lots of options out there but I’m gonna go with the Eastwood body paint as well. Everything just works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product Sprayed on a frame I that had been sandblasted. Thinned 20% to get the thickness I like to spray. Good coverage, adhered good. Very pleased. As a side note, sprayed Eastwood black frame paint over the encapsulator. Paint is REAL thin, didn't get near as much coverage as the encapsulator so I ran out before the frame was completely covered and had trouble with paint runs because of the thinness. I agree with a lot of the other reviews, Eastwood paint cans are WAY TOO THIN. Eastwood needs to improve the quality of the cans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think it's ok It took me about 20 minutes to get the lid off the can some of the paint got on the rim of the can when packing I had to go to a local paint store and get an empty can to put it in, it is strong paint like an epoxy, I think good paint too soon to tell

Can i use platinum as a primer and paint it over Im painting a pickup truck

Asked by: Silvan
Certainly, platinum works great as a basecoat if its a rusty piece. You can then primer over it and paint or paint right over it depending on just how nice of a finish you are going for.

1) What is the life in the can before and after opening? 2) Is the bulging can that others have experienced a common fault?

Asked by: Paul
1) The life of the product after opening depends on how well it is resealed after use. Due to how tight they have to be sealed at the factory, our cans are notoriously challenging to get a good seal on after opening. Often times we will utilize plastic bags as a sealing layer to improve the closure of the lid, or pour it into another container with a good seal. Glass jars work quite good for this. The life expectancy before hardening after resealing is in the order of weeks to months, not years. Also worth noting if it just has a hardened top layer you can drill through that, or drill through the bottom to the liquid product and it will still be good. 2) I believe the bulging cans were a seasonal temperature-pressure expansion issue that has been since resolved.

What is the best top coat for this? Extreme chassis or 2k ceramic chassis paint? Also is it best to wait for it to fully cure and sand it and apply a top coat or apply the top coat after 4 hours?

Asked by: Cs21
The 2K Ceramic Chassis Black AeroSpray can would be more durable than the Extreme Chassis black, but both are really good paints. We have seen no difference in performance when top coating after 4 hours compared to waiting 48 hours and sanding, but we recommend top coating after 4 hours because it will be hard to perfectly sand every nook and cranny of a chassis. When you're top coating after 4 hours you don't have to worry about sanding.

Can it be used with the Eastwood Pro Undercoating Gun? If so, does it need to be diluted if so? I want to spray it inside hard to reach areas with the extension wand commonly used for rust proofing. Eastwood Internal Frame Coating is out of stock.

Asked by: AC23
No, Actually the viscosity is already too thin. Undercoating gun is designed for thick viscus fluids like: Undercoating, Anti-Rust, Protective waxes, Soundproofing, Gravel protection, and most Bedliners
