  • Advantages Provided By a Rust Inhibitor Paint

    How does rust affect the economy?

    Showing the importance of a rust inhibitor paint Showing the importance of a rust inhibitor paint

    According to a study conducted in the US, as much as $276 billion dollars are spent due to corrosion. This amount of money is no joke and if there are ways of preventing rust from costing this much, everybody really should know about them in order to save money that can be directed toward more important and beneficial things.

    Rust or corrosion prevention is easy enough; there’s currently an abundance of products out there that are specifically formulated to prevent the reaction between iron and oxygen that results in rust. One of them is rust paint, which serves as a protective coating for metals that are used in major industries such as transportation, production and manufacturing, infrastructure, and utilities.

    How does a rust inhibitor paint work?

    What rust inhibitor paint really does is it creates an impermeable layer that blocks moisture and oxygen from reaching metal surfaces; without that interaction, rust doesn’t develop. Another thing it is known to do is it slows down the rate of corrosion since it possesses chemical compounds that stop moisture and oxygen from corroding any metal it comes into contact with.

    Rust inhibitor paint formulas have been perfected through the years; this way, not only do they adhere firmly to metal surfaces, but they are also easy to apply so they can be used on different metal finishes of everything — automotive, locomotive, trestles, or bridges. It’s also worth mentioning that rust paint no longer requires an activator or catalyst for increased efficiency in preventing corrosion, meaning no special preparation or techniques are needed in order to use it properly. And since it’s very easy to apply, you don’t need a professional to paint it over anything that you wish to prevent corrosion for. You can use a typical paintbrush, roller or spray equipment to apply rust paint properly.

    The most important advantage of using rust inhibitor paint is that it can save you a lot of money for repairs, patch up jobs, and replacements. Rust is such a hassle to deal with; it stains and creates an unpleasant appearance, and at the same time, it compromises the structural integrity of steel components. This is why rusty cars do not have a high selling price; not only are they ugly, but it also really takes a lot of money to reverse the impact of rust on a vehicle. Rust or corrosion creates an unnecessary cash outflow; therefore, if you can prevent it from occurring with the help of rust inhibitor paint such as Rust Bullet, you only have everything to gain from it.

  • Why Rust Bullet Rust Paint?

    Rust Bullet is the Premium Choice of Rust Paint - And Here is Why

  • The Importance of Surface Preparation for Rust Repair

    Rust Repair Starts with Surface Preparation

    Needle Scaling Surface Preparation Needle Scaling Surface Preparation

    To understand the type of surface preparation needing to be accomplished for rust repair, it is important to know what rust is. Rust results from the redox reaction that occur between objects made from iron (including its alloys) and oxygen in the presence of water. When rust occurs, surfaces becomes friable and crumbly and consequently do not provide strength to the iron. Hence, the application of paint is an ideal way of isolating the iron away from the environment. Before any paint can be applied on any surface, proper preparation should be carried out. Improperly prepared surfaces will affect adhesion, longevity and performance.

    Typically, good surface preparation involves:

    1. Ensuring that the surface to be coated is dry.
    2. Removal of dirt, oil, rusts, peeling paints any other contamination is essential to achieving good coating adhesion and performance.  Surface cleanliness is compulsory in order to achieve the desired result.
    3. Remove contaminate by scraping sanding or by using a chemical agent.

    An easy way to remember are the 5 P’s of surface prep. This stands for Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance. This is true for any paint or rust.

    A variety of products have been introduced to solve the problem of rust but there has been different challenges experienced during the use of these products and these include - complication during application, short life span, complex working conditions and they require rust to be removed before application.
