Start your corrosion control efforts during the finishing phase of your structure to prevent rust formation. This proactive approach helps reduce maintenance costs and eliminates the need for costly repairs down the line.
To achieve this, consider using Rust Bullet DuraGrade Clear, a high-performance, rust-inhibitive coating that provides excellent protection. This clear coat can be applied on various surfaces, including rusted metal, wood, or concrete.
Why use a clear coat?
Consider your exposed metal, wood, or even plastic items—be it a car or an outdoor wooden bench. When these items are left bare, they are highly vulnerable to damage and rust. Without a protective layer, these items are constantly exposed to harsh environmental conditions such as rain, snow, UV rays, and air pollution, which can lead to corrosion, scratching, and discoloration. This problem is not just a cosmetic issue—it also significantly shortens the lifespan of that item, leading to premature replacement.
DuraGrade Clear offers superior adhesion, abrasion resistance, and corrosion prevention, safeguarding your surfaces against UV and chemical damage, chipping, and scratches. Additionally, it enhances the overall aesthetic and smoothness of the surfaces—especially when used in conjunction with Rust Bullet Color Flakes. These flakes not only provide decorative value but also offer noise reduction and can hide imperfections and dirt.
Safety is also a concern when it comes to coated surfaces, as they can become slippery. The good news is that DuraGrade Clear is formulated to be safe and can even incorporate an anti-skid material for increased surface grip.
Applying our clear coat is a breeze. No specialized equipment is required; simply use a roller, brush, or spray equipment. Moreover, you won’t have to worry about high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) since DuraGrade Clear contains only 49 g/l of VOCs, meeting California VOC Standards.
