Product Description


Rust Encapsulator Platinum is a high-performance, moisture-cured coating that encapsulates and stops rust from spreading.

Brush or spray applied with conventional spray equipment. Rust Encapsulator Platinum is ideal for any type of rusted metal surface and can withstand temperatures up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.


  • Beat ALL competitive products in head-to-head Independent lab testing
  • Passed over 1,500 hours of salt spray testing
  • Tenacious bond permanently fuses to both bare, clean steel and corrosion
  • Can be applied directly over surface rust
  • Heat resistant to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Simple prep – wire brush, degrease and apply
  • Easy to apply – brush, roll or spray (spray for best results)
  • Can be top-coated with any high-quality paint system
  • 3X the corrosion protection of our Original Rust Encapsulator

Rust Encapsulator Platinum is the most durable, longest lasting rust encapsulating coating we have found. Independent lab testing of salt spray ASTM# B-117 testing has proven Rust Encapsulator Platinum has surpassed ALL competitive products tested and exceeded the 1500 hrs., torture test.


The independent lab test results don't lie! Below are the results of Rust Encapsulator Platinum and leading competitive rust products with over 500 hours of salt spray chamber testing. All panels are “Scribed Rusty Metal”. That means the panels were rusty, coated with the paint and then scribed before going into the salt spray chamber.

  • Automotive
  • Marine
  • Motorcycle
  • Farm and equipment
  • Bridges
  • Military Vehicle Protection
  • Oil and Refinery Pipeline Industry
  • Steel buildings, structures, and general home and shop use


Formulated to be applied outdoors at high dew points and temperatures down to 40° Fahrenheit or as high as 80° Fahrenheit with minimal surface preparation. Assuring excellent adhesion and impact resistance along with industry-leading corrosion protection and encapsulating properties.

4. Apply 1 medium wet coat with bristle brush or roller assuring all cavities and areas of corrosion are covered.
NOTE: Product can also be thinned up to 20% with Xylene and spray applied with traditional HVLP gravity or siphon spray equipment, use a 1.4 minimum needle/nozzle

5. Product will be tack-free after 2 hrs.

6. If top coating: apply top coat after 4 hrs., or before 48 hrs.
NOTE: If a smoother surface finish is desired, product can be mechanically sanded with 320 grit before top coating.

7. If top coating is desired after 48 hrs., surface must be scuff sanded with 320 grit paper to assure top coat adhesion.

8. Clean all spray equipment with acetone or lacquer thinner.



This stuff works!Review by Scotty85
I put this on my camaro subframe and it went on with ease. They recommend only one coat is needed but I applied two coats for safe keeping. Next I applied the 2k epoxy chassis black while I was still in the 48 hr threshold and it came out looking very nice! (Posted on 28/12/2018)
