Eastwood Treatment, Removal and Prevention

Auto restoration has changed a lot since Eastwood got started in 1978. But one thing remains the same: rust is always a problem. It's one of the biggest enemies we fight. For as long as there have been cars, there have been rusty parts. Water, snow, salt, and other elements are constantly trying to eat away at the metals used throughout your vehicle.

Rust can often be found throughout most of our projects. We do our best to stop small rust spots before they become gaping holes. We are constantly on the lookout for corrosion underneath our vehicles to prevent damage to our frames and undercarriages. And we attack exterior rust before it perforates our bodywork.

When it comes to restoring a vehicle, rust is usually the first challenge you’ll address. That might mean sealing existing rust in its place, removing old rust, preventing new rust from forming, or all the above.

Lucky for you, Eastwood offers some of the best rust removal and treatment products around. If you have parts with stubborn rust build-up that you want or need to reuse, we're ready to help. Eastwood also offers rustproofing products to prevent rust from forming. We've developed proven Eastwood-exclusive formulas based on more than 40 years of experience and we also carry brands such as POR-15, 3M, Kano, and Thread Wizard.

 

 What Are Anti-Rust Solutions?

There are three primary types of Eastwood rust solutions. Here's how each of them works and when you might need to use them:

Rust Removal

This is exactly what it sounds like: removing rust from parts and leaving the bare metal behind. Eastwood Contour SCT® abrasive wheels, drums, and sanding bands are an effective rust removal solution. These stripping and finishing wheels come in many sizes, shapes, and grits. If you're dealing with light surface rust, Eastwood Fast Etch offers quick and effective spray-on rust removal for DIYers. Wire brushes and thread cleaners are great for restoring hardware.

Rust Treatment

When you have stubborn rust in wheel wells or other hard-to-reach places where you can't easily remove it, you can at least stop it from getting worse. Eastwood Rust Encapsulator chemically seals rust in place so it won't continue to spread. It's available in Regular, Plus, and Platinum formulas for different degrees of rust. Another treatment option for heavily rusted bare metal is Eastwood Rust Converter, which transforms residual rust into a ready-to-paint surface — no sanding needed.

Rust Prevention

The best way to deal with rust is to stop it from occurring in the first place. Eastwood rust prevention products include heavy-duty anti-rust spray, self-etching primer, and Kroil penetrating oil. To prevent rust in hidden or enclosed areas like inside a frame or rocker panels, Internal Frame Coat seals and stops rust from damaging your vehicle from the inside out.
