Here at Rustbuster, we are always looking to find fantastic products that beat rust. Rustbuster 121 Epoxy Mastic is one such product.
Rustbuster Epoxy Mastic 121 is a two-component epoxy painting coating, which can be used to renovate or protect rusting steel that has been exposed to severe environments. But what are the qualities of Rustbuster 121 Epoxy and how can you get the best out of this powerful product? Here’s more information about Rustbuster 121 Epoxy and how it can be put to use to great effect:
What’s so good about it?
Often, businesses attempt to protect steel against rust with the use of single pack paints – that is, paint without a hardener. Due to the large size of their pigments and their high surface tension, the thin film of these paints are often unable to provide full protection from rust, being vulnerable to flaking and peeling and allowing voids to form under the paint’s surface.
Rustbuster 121 Epoxy, in contrast, is a two-pack paint consisting of a base and a hardener, made up of extremely small corrosion-protective pigments, giving it a larger solidity content and very low surface tension. The low surface tension of the paint allows it to penetrate all of the cracks and crevices on the surface of a steel, forming a strong protective barrier.
When dry, Rustbuster 121 Epoxy is remarkable for its sheer toughness, boasting a finish that is harder than iron. It does not flake, peel or blister, even under water, and resists outside elements like oils, salt water and mechanical damage. It can even withstand temperatures of up to 200C before discolouring and 350C before blistering.
While it’s a rugged paint, Rustbuster 121 Epoxy remains extremely flexible. Like any other paint it can be brush or spray applied, and can be combined with thinners to reduce its viscosity when painting smaller parts. It also comes in twelve standard colours (click here for our colour chart) or can be painted over if necessary.
Hopefully we have made it clear that Rustbuster 121 Epoxy is an excellent rust-buster, a high performance paint that has no equal. But in which situations can it come in handy?
One of our long-time customers is the Royal National Lifeboat Association (RNLA) who have been asking us to protect the chassis, engines and equipment of their sea tractors for over twenty years. The RNLA regularly use Ford Rangers as their lifeguard patrol vehicles that must be able to operate axle-deep in sea water and withstand the sand and gravel of the beach.
Recently we used Rustbuster 121 Epoxy to coat one of the RNLA’s Ford Rangers after they sent it to our base in Spalding, Lincolnshire. We removed its outer chassis and applied the paint, before refitting and returning it ready to handle another emergency. To see how we protected the Ranger you can take a look at our picture gallery here.
