Stop rust in its tracks! Our 2-Pc. Rust Encapsulator Kit has been reformulated with TWICE the corrosion resistance!
16-oz. aerosol (covers about 10 sq. ft.) plus 1-quart can (covers about 50 sq. ft.)
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

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.
Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has been tested by an independent lab to be one of the most effective rust-preventive products yet. Rust Encapsulator is a great primer for floor pans and other under-body parts. It fills tiny pin-holes and surface irregularities, and is compatible with lacquer, enamel and urethane topcoats (including Eastwood Chassis Black). For the absolute ultimate rust remedy, first brush or spray-on Eastwood Rust Converter, then prime with Rust Encapsulator. Contains no isocyanates. Heat-resistant up to 400 degrees F. Made in the USA.

In places where little or no surface prep can be done, our Heavy-Duty Anti-Rust (16017ZP) is actually a better choice for applying into blind areas such as box sections.
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. Brush-apply directly from the can, thin 20% with lacquer thinner to spray, or use the aerosol. A single coat dries to the touch in 20 minutes, and is thoroughly dry in 3-4 hours at 68 degrees F. 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.
(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 Heavy-Duty Anti-Rust (16017ZP). 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.
