Bridge Corrosion

Rust Grip® is a one-coat, patented encapsulation—interior and exterior—surface protection coating that also acts as a full containment covering single component urethane formula applied directly to rust or blasted metal surfaces. 6780 psi surface tensile strength. Pull test results in the field and lab average 1200 psi and in the field over blasted surface at 2200 psi. Extremely tough, anchors itself inside the pores of the metal surface or surface rust to block moisture and air from developing corrosion. Simple to use and extremely effective against all corrosive environments. Applied only to completely dry surfaces.

This moisture-cured polyurethane coating has been used successfully in the harshest environments; chemical fields, oil fields, oil rigs, and in areas that demand resistance to the corrosive effects of day-to-day exposure. Rust Grip® is tested to encapsulate toxic elements such as existing lead-based paint, asbestos and other biohazard materials. Passing 15,000 hours of ASTMB117 with the Top Score of 10 at only 6 dry mils and with scribe 500 hours, no blistering.

Rust Grip® is easy to use and stops the progression of rust and corrosion, while protecting the substrate far longer than conventional, surface gluing, industrial grade rust inhibitors. With minimal preparation and no white sand blast- ing of the surface, Rust Grip® applies with one coat, “two applications,” and penetrates deep into and seals the pores of the surface to become part of the surface profile.

Within an hour of application, Rust Grip® begins to cure, pulling moisture from the air and microscopically swelling into the individual pores of the substrate as it hardens. This moisture absorption anchors the coating and seals against any possibility of outside air, moisture or minerals from entering the pores and attacking the surface and causing further corrosion or penetration of any kind.

Rust Grip® is tested to encapsulate:

  • Rust
  • Lead-based paint
  • Asbestos
  • Bio-hazardous materials

Rust Grip® has the ability to protect against mold and mildew on surfaces that are prone to dam- age from prolonged exposure. Rust Grip® cre- ates an unsurpassed protective surface, proven time and again through on-site evaluations and real-world applications.
