Applying Eastwood's Rubberized Rust Encapsulator™ directly over rust or bare metal creates a durable and flexible finish that protects undercar surfaces from road hazards and abrasions.
Pottstown, PA (PRWEB) May 04, 2012
The Eastwood Company, innovators of do-it-yourself automotive restoration tools and accessories, has just introduced Rubberized Rust Encapsulator™, the new, "flexible" formulation of their popular Rust Encapsulator™ long-term rust-prevention solution.
Eastwood combined the benefits of their Rust Encapsulator™ and their Rubberized Undercoating into one easy-to-use product. Rubberized Rust Encapsulator™ is an affordable solution that stops rust from spreading and eventually destroying an auto restoration project. Applying Rubberized Rust Encapsulator™ directly over rust or bare metal creates a durable and flexible finish that protects undercar surfaces from road hazards and abrasions. It can be left as-is with its satin black finish, or top-coated with almost any paint.
"Off-the-shelf undercoatings require the removal of all rust and they can create air pockets that trap moisture, allowing rust to spread within those pockets, but Eastwood’s Rubberized Rust Encapsulator™ applies directly over rust and prevents those pockets from forming. It also helps to deaden sound," commented “J.R.” Robinson, Eastwood Product Manager.
"The durability of this product is unmatched," added Robinson. "In salt spray chamber testing, Rubberized Rust Encapsulator™ exceeded 1,000 hours, where over-the-counter undercoatings typically fail in the 200 to 250 hour range."
Robinson advised that a single coat dries to the touch in 20 minutes at 68°F. You can customize your application by laying down multiple coats, he suggests a second coat be applied one hour after the first coat. It’s best to allow 24 hours for full curing. A topcoat is not necessary, but Rubberized Rust Encapsulator is compatible with most paints.
