    Protect and repair all of your automotive rust issues with ease using Rust Bullet’s Automotive Formula. Our innovative rust repair technology has been specially created to provide the best rust paint available to protect your vehicle. Rust Bullet’s wide variety of automotive options will provide superior coverage on any vehicle.

    Our customers are looking to stop rust for good, and they can, if they use our Rust Bullet Automotive Formula. This is recommended for all of your Automotive rust application needs including undercarriages, frames, floor pans, rocker panels, suspension and much more.

    Our Rust Automotive Formula contains more metal and is a bit thinner than our Standard Formula allowing for an easy application with HVLP automotive finishing guns, as well as brush or roller, and provides a smoother finish usually desired for automotive projects.

    One the biggest causes of car failure is rust.

    When Rust Bullet is applied over rusted metal it penetrates the substrate, dehydrates the rust, until reaching the metal. This allows the resin to become intertwined with the rust, then becomes part of the coating and solidifies into an armor tough coating with phenomenal adhesion.

  • Don't Just Paint Over Rust

    Don't just paint over rust. You know you're going to be back at in no time. Fight rust for good, get rid of rust completely with Rust Bullet.

    While many people are okay with this sentiment, the team at Rust Bullet isn't. Why? What's the point of painting over rust when you can get rid of rust completely?

    It's not just a pipe dream, it's completely achievable with Rust Bullet paint.

    SO much work goes into preparing a surface that needs to be painted over to remove rust. First, you need to pull out the wire brush, and that's a feat within itself. After you're good tired from removing all paint and excess rust from the surface, then you must thoroughly clean and set the surface to be spray painted.

    If you're really set to paint a surface, but it's for bonding purposes, choose Rust Bullet's Metal Jacket.  Metal Jacket is a cleaner and conditioner for metal that removes rust, grease, and contaminants allowing a superior bond to surfaces that have minimal or poor adhesive qualities.

    Metal Blast removes surface rust and properly etches metal for better paint adhesion. Metal Blast enhances the adhesive properties of coatings on any metal surface including aluminum and shiny polished metal.

    Metal Blast creates an ideal anchor pattern to surfaces allowing superior adhesion of all Rust Bullet Coatings. Metal Blast dissolves rust from metal tools and equipment as well as other rusted surfaces adding years of performance to any paint project.

  • Por 15 vs. Rust Bullet, What Works

    Rust Bullet is proud to inform its customers that its products have been awarded unprecedented two patents for its superior technology and environmental friendly rust preventive products.

    There are three different types of corrosion: pitting and cavity corrosion, contact corrosion, and crevice corrosion.

    Changes in temperature increased humidity (more moisture in the air for the reaction), and geographical elements (nearer the sea, windy sites, particularly rainy etc.), can all contribute to increased rust.

    stop industrial rust

    Oxidizing can be made worse if the structure is in a heavily salty environment, such as out at sea, as salt can increase the speed of the reacting process.

     

    Excessive rusting can cause structures to collapse and pipelines to burst. Rust can also ruin the aesthetic appeal of iron components, as you've probably witnessed on cars, boats, bridges, and even old playgrounds.

    Rust Bullet products can be easily applied to the car surface either in the form of a paint, spray or even rolled. There is also no requirement of a top coat or an undercoat which reduces the overall time. So, why compare Por 15 vs. Rust Bullet?

    While products like POR15 simply provide a coating on the car surface, the Rust Bullet products are specifically designed to penetrate the metal surface and mix the rust.

    Paints and coatings are materials that prevent contact between the iron and an electrolyte. Paints and coatings also prevent excessive oxygen from contacting the iron.

    The Right Choice, Por 15 vs. Rust Bullet  

    It is true that many rust conversion products claim to change the chemical nature of rust and convert it to a more stable element that won't rust again, this isn't really possible.

    Most of these failed products just simply don't work, or work, but not for more than a few months at best, and they are subject to the same chipping and cracking that occurs with ordinary rust coatings.

    The physical integrity of the metal coating is as important as its chemical barrier properties in many applications. Selecting the best metal coating for an application requires evaluating all effects of the specific environment, including thermal and mechanical conditions.

    One of the most common and inexpensive protection methods for steel is provided by a metal coating process with zinc. Zinc-coated, or galvanized, steel is produced by various hot-dipping techniques, but more steel companies today are moving into more environmentally friendly methods of protection. (Like us!)

    What POR-15 Does:

    Por 15 vs. Rust Bullet

    POR-15 chemically bonds to rusted metal and forms a hard, non-porous coating that claims it will not crack chip or peel. It states that it will keep moisture away from metal with a coating that is strengthened by continued exposure to moisture. Thereby combatting the rusting process.

    What Rust Bullet Does: 

    When Rust Bullet is applied to rusted metal it penetrates the substrate, dehydrates the rust, until it reaches the metal underneath. This allows the resin to become intertwined with the rust, then becomes part of the coating and solidifies into an armor tough coating with phenomenal adhesion.

    According to extensive independent scientific testing, Rust Bullet is the most effective, longest lasting, easiest to use rust/corrosion-control product on the market.

    Rust Bullet Standard Formula has been awarded Two United States Patents for its advanced technologies and is the gold standard used and recognized worldwide as the best rust/corrosion-control product available.

    Use the Rust Bullet Standard Formula for your metal surfaces including Marine, Home, Farm, Industrial, and Commercial applications.

    Use Rust Bullet Standard Formula as a stand-alone coating, or in combination with Rust Bullet BlackShell, Rust Bullet WhiteShell, Rust Bullet Color Shells or Rust Bullet Clear Shot for unbeatable rust protection.

    Rust Bullet Standard Formula is metallic gray in color. Rust Bullet Standard can be brushed, rolled or sprayed.

    Rust Bullet is proud to inform its customers that its products have been awarded unprecedented two patents for its superior technology and environmental friendly rust preventive products.

    With this endeavor, Rust Bullet has left competitors like POR 15 far behind in the quest for rust prevention. Rust Bullet simplifies rust prevention by eliminating the need for extensive surface preparation.

  • Garage Floor Paint

    Rust Bullet is a truly long lasting floor paint for your garage that will provide years of service without issue when applied correctly. Our paint provides the same non-slip protection as bare concrete.  If you desire better non-slip protection in your home garage or commercial garage, you can add an anti-skid additive to it to provide good slip protection no matter the climate, using Rust Bullet garage floor paint. Just mix it in with the second coat.

    Rust Bullet's garage floor paint will not peel, is extremely longlasting, and will not develop hot tire lift problems associated with other garage floor paints on the market today.

    Painting a garage floor has been the goal of so many of our clients as it is so much easier to paint the garage floor rather than apply an epoxy coating. In 2003, Rust Bullet introduced a 1-Part moisture cure polyurethane paint coating to stop rust and corrosion in metal, but we quickly realized that it had many, many, more uses.

    So why call it 'garage floor paint'? It is advertised this way because like paint, Rust Bullet garage floor paint is a single part coating that doesn’t require a second component to mix in.  It is extremely easy to apply like paint and can be applied to other surfaces with the use of a spray gun.

    Most concrete garage floor paints are either latex acrylic or a blend of latex acrylic with small amounts of epoxy added to increase durability, also known as 1-Part epoxy paint.  Rust Bullet, however, is a moisture cured urethane (polyurethane) that is applied like paint.  Like most paints, it does not require acid etching or grinding of the concrete either

    One thing to keep in mind, though, is that our garage floor paint is a monochromatic paint.  It doesn’t create a nice glossy and colorful finish like epoxy can.  It will produce a nice semi-gloss metallic gray finish, though, that is easy to maintain and creates a very clean look.

    Are you looking for a paint for your garage floor? Contact the experts at Rust Bullet today and let us help you choose the right paint to suit your needs. With our 5 year warranty on garage floor paint, we're sure you'll be satisfied with the results.

  • Rust Bullet vs. Powdercoat: Save Money with Rust Bullet

    First of all, let's discuss the difference between Rust Bullet and Powder Coat?

    Well, while Powder Coat does a few redeeming qualities, it actually runs a lot more expensive than Rust Bullet does, with a more complicated application process, by far.

    Although there are certain applications that may require specific coatings, it should be recognized that a powder coating is still a paint thus being sacrificial in nature.

    The complexity and costly nature of a powder coating compared to the relative ease and moderate cost of a Rust Bullet Coating speak for themselves when a clear and wise decision is required. But, we wanted to help you make an informed decision, too.

    So, here are some specs: 

    Powder coating, a free-flowing dry powder is typically applied electrostatically and cured in high heat specialty ovens.

    Due to its powder form, this coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. Powder coatings are typically a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paints, can be applied in much thicker dft without running or sagging, and possesses a near zero VOC emission and no waste.

    Sounds good, right? Well... 

    Rust Bullet Coatings are a one part, multiple coat process, which can be applied with a brush, roller or spray equipment by the professional and the amateur painter.

    The desired thickness of the application can be controlled by either the number of coats or the method of application from a simple roller to the industrial spray equipment.

    Rust Bullet Coatings cure in the ambient atmosphere and are ready for a second or subsequent coat in a matter of hours.

    Rust Bullet Coatings create a smooth, hard, impermeable surface that is scratch, chip, chemical and UV resistant with a look and feel very similar to a powder coating. Rust Bullet Coatings meet the California VOC Standards for metallic pigmented coatings.

    These standards are among the most stringent in the world.

    Although there are advantages to a powder coating, the limitations and the high cost of a powder coating can diminish these advantages very quickly in many applications.

    With a powder coating, it is easy to achieve smooth thick films but it is very difficult to achieve a thin smooth film without orange peel, therefore it requires more product to achieve an acceptable finish.

    Rust Bullet Coatings can be applied in multiple thin coats to achieve an extremely smooth surface without an orange peel effect. Rust Bullet Coatings can easily be applied in thicker coats for those industrial projects requiring high mil dft.

    Although there are certain applications that may require specific coatings, it should be recognized that a powder coating is still a paint thus being sacrificial in nature.

    The complexity and costly nature of a powder coating compared to the relative ease and moderate cost of a Rust Bullet Coating speak for themselves, and we'll prove it to you!

    Are you in between decisions with a powder coating or Rust Bullet application? Contact our talented team today. We will make sure that you make the most informed decision possible.
