Breathing new life into machinery, vehicles, and boats, rust inhibitors are the unsung heroes in the battle against corrosion. They have the ability to transform rust into a stable and protective coating while being economical and simple to apply. Rust inhibitors can extend the life of metal items without requiring full replacement. From professional restoration projects to DIY endeavors, they are the go-to formulation for safety and preservation—a first line of defense in safeguarding metal assets against further decay.

More than arust inhibitor

Rust Bullet offers all of the benefits of a rust inhibitor and more. In fact, it’s not just a rust inhibitor—it’s a rust inhibitor that stops rust from forming in the first place.

Rust Bullet employs three recognized methods of protection: (1) barrier protection, (2) inhibition, and (3) sacrificial action.

Barrier protection involves applying a non-porous and impermeable coating that blocks moisture, oxygen, and chemicals from reaching the substrate. While coatings are somewhat permeable, barrier coatings have relatively low moisture permeability.

Inhibitive coatings have specialized pigments that hinder corrosion reactions on the substrate. As moisture passes through the coating film, the anti-corrosive pigments gradually dissolve, actively preventing corrosion.

Additionally, Rust Bullet acts as a sacrificial coating, sacrificing itself over time to safeguard the integrity of the applied substrate. This sacrificial action is similar to that of zinc- and aluminum-rich coatings.

Rust Bullet’s rust inhibitor in action

Rust Bullet is so effective that it’s the metal protector of choice for major infrastructure around the world.

Case in point: the4420-meter-longYeongjong Bridge in South Korea, which connects Yeongjongisland to the mainland. As one of the country's most expensive and important bridges, it requires constant maintenance and regular assessments. Such structures constantly face the issue of rust and corrosion caused by exposure to different atmospheric conditions, especially the corrosive saltwater environment. Saltwater is highly damaging to materials, posing a significant risk of gradual weakening and eventual failure of the bridge.

Fortunately, the Yeongjong Bridge is effectively protected from these risks by the application of durable, high-quality, and long-lasting Rust Bullet rust inhibitors and protective coatings. The patented rust inhibitor applied to the bridge prevents the formation of rust and corrosion, ensuring the preservation of its structural integrity.
