Eastwood Silver Rust Encapsulator 15oz Aerosol is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff I've been using this for many years and it works great. The items I put it on several years ago are showing no signs of any rust coming through. Used it on my car, metal building, metal carport roof, metal gutter guards and other metal items. I highly recommend this paint.

Can this be used to stop/prevent surface rust on exhaust pipes?

Asked by: Skip
Unfortunately this would not be able to withstand the higher heat this application would subject this coating to.

I have a 2012 Ram 3500 pickup which has heavy rust on the frame and running gear. Trying to decide if I need to wire wheel it all off or if any product(s) could be applied directly over it to stop further rusting and protect it.

Asked by: njjdc
Rust Encapsulator will work on controlling your rust. Just need to remove all lose surface rust, wipe the area down with Acetone, and apply 2 coats of the Rust Encapsulator.

Is this a good product for Boat trailers used in saltwater environment?

Asked by: skeeter08
While we have never tested directly on a vehicle or trailer which is contact with direct salt water this certainly should work for some time. We do also have a much stronger version which has passed 1,500 hours in the salt spray chamber test. The Platinum Rust Encapsulator should be your best bet. https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-rust-encapsulator-platinum.html

I applied this product to a rocker panel. After 24 hours I was going to put another coat. I used pre to clean the panel and the product started to come off. I was able to completely rub off the product with pre. Is this normal? 

Asked by: Vlad
Since the Rust Encapsulator is not a catalyzed product this is completely normal. If another coat is desired all you simply need to do is scuff the surface and blow the dust off before moving on.

Can I use the black textured encapsulator and then spray this as a topcoat for it? Thinking it would be good on rockers and can corners.

This product could certainly be used over top of our textured rust Encapsulator.

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

  • Twice the corrosion resistance of our original formula for greater durability (tested to 500 hours in a salt-spray chamber)
  • 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, and the low-VOC formula is acceptable in California
  • 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 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.

Low 3-5% gloss Silver Rust Encapsulator. As easy to apply and as durable as our popular Red and Black. Perfect under metallic and gray finishes.

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.


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


(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.


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.
