RustSeal is a single-component, ready-to-use, high-solid content, rust preventive coating with exceptional properties. It is specifically formulated to stop and encapsulate existing rust and corrosion. This extremely tough, flexible coating is highly resistant to mechanical abrasion and impact, guarding against abuse and therefore keeping the substrate completely sealed and the moisture permanently locked out. It is also highly resistant to most aggressive chemicals, including most acids, alkalis, salt, abrasive materials, fertilizers, solvents, oil and refined petroleum products.
RustSeal wets and penetrates the surface down to the origin of the rust. It combines with atmospheric moisture to start the curing process of the resins by expanding and interlocking within the pores of the rust. This unique process literally enables the coating to galvanize itself to the substrate, becoming an integral part of the surface. It completely seals the surface, totally blocking all the pores and preventing all access of moisture, air and water vapor.
Unlike other rust paints, RustSeal is a single-component product, so there are no mixing ratios involved. In addition, once cured, RustSeal can be top-coated with any top-coat system you choose. RustSeal is capable of adhering to nearly any prepared substrate and may be used as a lead-based paint encapsulation in environmental conditions of 0-500 F degrees. RustSeal has moderate UV stability and can withstand direct sunlight for months without chalking unlike other competitors.
This is the third and final step in permanent rust protection. KBS Coatings recommends first cleaning soiled or rusted surfaces with AquaKleen to remove any oils, grime or dirt. This will allow the second step, RustBlast to fully remove rust, corrosion or tarnish and leave a gently etched surface. The third and final step is to coat the surface with RustSeal to prevent any future rust or corrosion.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
WARNING: The wires of these products contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
