Liquid Encapsulation Coating

Rust Grip® is a patented moisture-cure polyurethane encapsulating coating designed to coat and seal air, moisture, and minerals out of surfaces acting as a full containment covering. Rust Grip® has been successfully used in the harshest environments; chemical fields, oil fields and 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 paints, asbestos, rust and other bio-hazardous materials. Rust Grip® can protect and seal surfaces of steel, aluminum, concrete, wood, fiberglass, and many other substrates to strengthen the surface to a 6780+psi surface tensile strength.

Rust Grip® is a "three-coats-in-one system" that acts as a primer, intermediate, and topcoat with a single 4mil dry application. With minimal preparation and no white sand blasting of the surface required, Rust Grip replaces 3-part systems at a fraction of the time and cost! Rust Grip® offers long life in extreme conditions, lasting 15+ years in the toughest environments.


  • Excellent for minimally prepared surfaces, ie. no white sandblasting is needed
  • Protects steel, aluminum, concrete, wood, fiberglass, lead-based paints, and other substrates
  • Moisture Barrier that stops water penetration, prevents corrosion and surface deterioration, and repels dirt, mold, and mildew
  • Extremely tough, it makes an excellent floor coating. Hardens to 6780+ psi surface tensile strength
  • Patented for encapsulating bio-hazardous materials (asbestos, lead-based paint, and many hazardous materials) and existing rusted surfaces
  • Submergible in 100% nitric acid without any effects. Designed to withstand acids, salts, and caustics with no loss of integrity
  • Rated as a Class A fire coating. In case of fire, Rust Grip® will help to prevent spread of, and will not contribute to, the fire
  • Prevents water penetration. Performs as a permanent moisture barrier that stops water penetration and prevents surface deterioration, contamination, and formation of mold and mildew
  • Paint Directly on firmly bonded paint

Rust Grip® provides:

  • Exceptional adhesion- ASTM 5B rating
  • Surface tensile strength of 6,780+ psi
  • Withstands temperatures up to 325° F
  • Certified penetration of 18 layers of existing lead-base paint
  • Endures 29,700 rub cycles without exposing lead-based paint
  • Passed 2000 hour salt spray test
  • Test "5" on flame spread (0-25 Class A)
  • Meets EPA guidelines
  • Certified water barrier- ASTM D6904, ASTM D7088
  • 15-20 year life expectancy in the harshest environments

Rust Grip® is reviewed and approved by these organizations:

  • USDA Product Safety Branch (approved for use in and around food preparations areas)
  • DNV (Det Norske Veritas)
  • ABS (American Bureau of Shipping)
  • IMO (International Maritime Organization)
  • US Coast Guard
  • Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia Departments of Transportation
