Industrial Strength Rust Inhibitive Coating Has a Smoother Finish for Automotive Projects

  • Easy to apply and maintain
  • Smooth finish is ideal for automotive projects
  • Metallic gray in color
  • Apply over clean or rusty metal
  • Long-term protection with superior adhesion
  • Scratch, chip and chemical resistant

Rust Bullet is an effective, easy-to-use rust/corrosion-control product for automotive projects. Use it for all your automotive applications including undercarriages, frames, floor pans, rocker panels, suspension and more. Rust Bullet can be applied directly over rusted metal and clean surfaces to provide permanent protection with excellent adhesion.

Rust Bullet Automotive Formula contains more metal and is a bit thinner than the Standard Formula allowing for easy application with HVLP automotive finishing guns, as well as brush or roller, and provides a smoother finish usually desired for automotive projects.

When Rust Bullet is applied on corroded metal, it does not form a film immediately; first it penetrates to the original metal surface and then combines the rust and coating. If the finished surface becomes chipped, rust will not spread and a simple touch up will reseal the chip, providing fast, easy, low-cost maintenance.

Rust Bullet requires basic surface preparation and no topcoat is necessary. Rust Bullet can be re-coated or top-coated between 4-6 hours after the previous coat has been applied with no additional preparation. If a finished color other than metallic gray is desired, Rust Bullet is compatible with most conventional top coat paints. Of course, Rust Bullet BlackShell or Clear Shot are formulated specifically to be superior top coats. Rust Bullet contains no zinc, no chromates, no acids, no heavy metals, and complies with Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) limits regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.

For best results 2 - 3 coats of the Automotive Formula are recommended, not including any Color Shell or Clear Shot top coats. Please read and follow all instructions before applying the product.

Rust Bullet Automotive Formula is metallic gray in color. Rust Bullet Automotive Formula may brushed, rolled or sprayed over clean or rusted metal. Minimum two coat application required.
