FAQ
(Q) Can Red Rust Encapsulator be applied with the Undercoating System?
(A) Technically, yes, but this application isn't recommended because Rust Encapsulator requires surface to be free of grease, oil, and loose rust. The best product to coat inside box sections is the 16017ZP Heavy-Duty Anti-Rust (Qt.). This waxy, oily product flows into pinch welds and through rust to seal surfaces from contact with moisture and air, but cannot be painted over, so it's only suitable for inside box sections that don't show. Use lacquer thinner for cleanup.

  • I trust Eastwood products
    I've used the Eastwood rust encapsulator on three project cars so far; A 71 corvette, A 72 Z28 Camaro and a 67 Lemans. I like the way it applies and it seems to have great adhesion and a tough coat strength. I like the red version best because it looks like a factory finish and it's easy to see where it has been applied. Unless I have a new metal surface, I use the rust encapsulator to ensure no minor rust will spread. Very happy with the product.
  • Good Product
    The rust encapsulator performs as advertised. For my vehicle,'50 Studebaker, I used the product in hard to reach areas. On older projects, 3+ years, it still holds up ewll and shows no signs of failing. For me, it's the best available.
  • Sprays great.
    Seems great but only time will tell. Sprays WONDERFUL! Lays down flat and has a nice flat / semi gloss finish and primer like texture. I was very pleased. Hopefully it works as advertised for stopping the rust.
  • Great coverage and an excellent base.
    We painted the inside of my Class 5 Baja with the Red and the outside with the Grey. Coverage was great and I was able to get pretty good control with the rattle can. The red will most likely be the final color for the interior while the grey will hold until I can do a satin red outside.
  • Works Great!
    I completely coated a 56 Beetle my Dad and I restored over 20 years ago. Twenty years in New England weather, outside a lot. It never got a spec of rust over all that time. This stuff WORKS!
