500 Hour Accelerated Weathering Test

Testing done, scientifically, against the six main ingredienits that virtually all rust/corrosion “in the field use” products contain, using the market leaders as comparisions.

Tested according to the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) and United States Navy Specifications.

Product Comparisons

This nine stage test method covers the treatment of previously painted or coated specimens for accelerated and atmospheric exposure tests and their subsequent evaluation in respect to corrosion, blistering associated with corrosion, loss of adhesion at a scribe mark, or other film failure.

Rust Bullet, POR15, Wasser: Product Comparison

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. The 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 under coat which reduces the overall time. ;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 the rust. This feature helps in better rust prevention for the products and attacks rust right at the root level thus offering better protection. The Rust Bullet products are also more environmental friendly as compared to other products in the market. These products are developed to emit lower emission which makes them more sustainable. The products are free from heavy metals, zinc, chromates and other harsh chemicals. Thus, Rust Bullet ensures protection for both your assests and the environment.

* Application Step means a surface preparation, or the application of a required component.

** EXTENSIVE PREPARATION COSTS to total cost of product depending on a variety of techniques, including: Sand Blasting, Needling, Heavy Scraping, and Chemical Treating. In addition to the high cost of preparation, the containment and disposal of the waste created by these extensive preparation procedures in order to comply with EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) requirements,could be far greater than the initial cost of the product.

NONE OF THESE EXTENSIVE PREPARATION PROCEDURES ARE NEEDED FOR RUST BULLET, SO THESE SUBSTANTIAL COSTS DO NOT APPLY.
