Eastwood Rust Encapsulator Silver Aerosol - EW16080Z

Stop rust in its tracks! Our Silver Rust Encapsulator has been reformulated with TWICE the corrosion resistance!

  • ▶   Twice the corrosion resistance of our original formula for greater durability (tested to 500 hours in a salt-spray chamber)
  • ▶   Epoxy-fortified for better adhesion and topcoat compatibility
  • ▶   Penetrates deeper to prevent rust from spreading or forming, even in hard-to-reach areas
  • ▶   Cures faster, and the low-VOC formula is acceptable in California
  • ▶   15-oz. aerosol covers about 10 sq. ft.

You thought it was good before...wait 'til you try this Rust Encapsulator! It seals and stops rust and corrosion from spreading, but it performs even better than our original formula. Tested against well-known brands, the Eastwood Rust Encapsulator has proven to be superior in sunlight resistance, preventing rust creep, and overall durability.


Use a wire brush to remove loose rust, scale and paint, and remove dust, grease and oil deposits. Feather surrounding paint with 220-grit sandpaper. Shake can for at least 2 minutes once the mixing ball starts to rattle. Hold the Rust Encapsulator can 10-12" above surface as you spray. A single coat dries to the touch in 20 minutes, and is thoroughly dry in 3-4 hours at 68 degreesF. For greater durability, a second coat can be applied 1 hour after the first. Allow 6-8 hours after the last coat before applying topcoat. Use over or under body fillers.


Work in a well-ventilated area when applying this product. The use of a respirator is recommended. Shake vigorously for 2 minutes before spraying.


(Q) Can 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.

    A bit on the pricy side, but lays down very nice, touches up beautifully and blends well, hides beyond great, and for a silver it is easy to use. Just make sure to shake well.
