An Unprecedented Two Patents!
Rust Bullet®, a one-step product that coats over rusty or clean metal to control corrosion without the need for special surface preparation, has received two patents from the United States Patent Office on its two new technologies. This is the first time the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued two patents on one rust/corrosion-control product.
“According to the USPTO, your two technologies are new and unique,” writes patent attorney Barbara J. Luther. “The USPTO was impressed by both your real-life results and your independent scientific laboratory results. The first patent covers a method and composition for protecting rusty surfaces from corrosion. The second patent covers methods of protecting surfaces, either on land or at sea.”
Rust Bullet was originally invented by a Los Angeles inventor to protect U.S. Air Force jet wingtips from abrasion during flight. Phenomenal results for rust and corrosion control have been achieved after years of refinement. Rust Bullet, LLC was granted the exclusive rights to the product and tested Rust Bullet extensively before bringing it to the coatings market. The results have been impressive.
“According to extensive independent scientific testing, Rust Bullet is the most effective, longest lasting, and easiest to use rust/corrosion-control product on the market,” said Bob Murphy, a founder and the late President/CEO of Rust Bullet. “Rust Bullet has outperformed all known active ingredients contained in all other rust control products.” Rust Bullet backs its claims with a challenge to its competitors to prove otherwise in comparative testing: “The loser pays all testing costs, and the winner is free to use the test results in their advertising.” So far, there have been no takers in almost two years.
When Rust Bullet is applied on corroded metal, it does not form a film immediately; first it penetrates to the original metal surface and then combines the rust and coating. If the finished surface becomes chipped, rust will not spread and a simple touch up will reseal the chip, providing fast, easy, low-cost maintenance.
Rust Bullet can be brushed, rolled, or sprayed over clean or rusted metal. Rust Bullet requires little or no preparation and no topcoat is necessary. Rust Bullet contains no zinc, no chromates, no acids, no heavy metals, and complies with Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) limits regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the more stringent regulations of the state of California.
