Rust Protect

Multi-Functional Primer

Rust Protect is a direct-to-metal (DTM)/ direct-to-rust permanent primer that protects a wide variety of ferrous materials, including hard rust metal surfaces from continued deterioration. Rust Protect dries smooth, creating a strong bond between rusted metal surfaces and application-specific top coats.

No blasting/grinding needed
500ºF+ Resistant
corrosion primer


  • Easy to use (brush,spray,roll)

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Rust Protect?

  • Rust Protect is an odorless, low VOC dual-component direct-to-metal (DTM) coating that protects a wide variety of ferrous materials (including hard rust metal surfaces) from continued deterioration
  • It is 25% cementitious yet forms strong bonds to nearly all metal surfaces
  • Environmentally-friendly due to its use of recycled industrial material and extremely low VOC level


How is Rust Protect applied?

  • Rust Protect can be applied onto a surface via spray or roller application
  • No abrasive blasting or grinding is required prior to application – power washing and degreasing is adequate


What surfaces can Rust Protect be applied to?

  • Rust Protect can be applied to concrete-encase metal, metal stairs and ramps, Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI), exhaust systems, corrugated metal roofs, Rebar, steel structures, boilers & furnaces, metal doors, pipe exteriors
  • Rust Protect can also be applied to “live” surfaces that expand and contract due to internal pressure changes or external influences


How does Rust Protect work?

  • Rust Protect dries smooth, creating a strong bond between rusted metal surfaces and application-specific top coats.
  • Adhesion is maintained on surfaces with rust
  • Rust Protect also provides a unique method to bond metal substrates to concrete


What kinds of conditions can Rust Protect endure?

  • Rust Protect maintains flexibility, bending as much as 90 degrees without cracking or lifting when properly applied
  • Extreme temperature resistance (-80 degrees Fahrenheit to +500 degrees Fahrenheit)


What is the shelf-life of Rust Protect?

  • Indefinite (lasts forever)
