We at Rust Bullet, LLC recently announced the launch of DuraGrade Concrete, the best concrete paint on the market. Rust Bullet® Color Flakes can be applied on top of DuraGrade Concrete for a stylistic finish, and DuraGrade Clear can be used as a sleek topcoat for maximum aesthetic value.

Why is Rust Bullet the best concrete paint?

David Ciglar, our General Manager, had this to say, “Our DuraGrade products not only provide a lower VOC option for those concerned with the preservation of our environment, or are required to comply with stricter VOC regulations, they provide phenomenal protection with best in the industry performance! DuraGrade Concrete exceeded the capacity of the ASTM testing apparatus/limits in three of the five tests. During the pull-off adhesion bond strength test, the concrete broke apart before DuraGrade lost adhesion. This is unheard of in our industry!”

We say that Rust Bullet is the best concrete paint, but can we prove it?

  • Apply Directly to Concrete Without Acid Etching
  • Scratch, Chip, Chemical and UV Resistant
  • Excellent Resistance to the Peeling or Lifting Caused From Hot Tire Pick Up
  • Requires No Primer, Basecoat, or Topcoat
  • Ideal for Indoor or Outdoor Surfaces
  • Covers approximately 300 square feet, per gallon, per coat, depending on the porosity and texture of the substrate. A minimum two coat application is required.
  • Just in case you aren’t convinced yet, we thought we would share the test results from the American Section of the International Association for Testing Materials (ASTM).

    Test: Taber Abrasion (ASTM D4060)
    Test Description: Taber abrasion is a test to determine a material’s resistance to abrasion. Resistance to abrasion is defined as the ability of a material to withstand mechanical action such as rubbing, scraping, or erosion. Abrasion can be difficult to compare but haze variation or weight loss are often evaluated.
    Test Result: 38 mg / 1,000 Cycles

    Test: Impact Resistance (ASTM D2794)
    Test Description: Tests rapid deformation by impact
    Test Result: >40 inches (exceeds max test limits)

    Test: Mandrel Bend (ASTM D 522-13)
    Test Description: Used to determine the resistance to cracking (flexibility) of attached organic coatings on substrates of sheet metal or rubber-type materials.
    Test Result: >32% without cracking (exceeds test)

    Test: Pull-off Adhesion Bond Strength (ASTM D7234-05)
    Test Description: The test determines the greatest perpendicular force (in tension) that a surface area can bear before a plug of material is detached.
    Test Result:

    50mm dolly: >525 PSI (Dollies unable to be removed at ~525 max psi)

    20mm dolly: >1485 PSI (the concrete broke apart before DuraGrade lost adhesion)
