“I want to thank you for all the support I have received from you.  I live on the Gulf Coast on water front property.  I built this house in 2002 and put a metal standing seam roof in it which I thought would last 30 years.  The bottom edges were rusting badly by 2014.  I found out about Rust Grip online and contacted you.   A year and a half later it still looks like the day I put it on. The best money I ever spent.  I would highly recommend Rust Grip to anyone with a rust problem.  Thanks again, Mike Cooper”

Coating Projects And Case Studies

Empire Stores Historic Preservation and Redevelopment Project (Rust Grip)

 

Empire Stores is an award-winning mixed use redevelopment of a 450,000 SF vacant 19th century waterfront warehouse located in Brooklyn, New York.  This conversion brought contemporary office space, retail, food courts, public spaces, and exhibition galleries to the neighborhood.  It is also home to the Brooklyn Historical Society. As part of the project, the architects wanted to restore and preserve as much of the original building as possible.  This included hundreds of the original large metal shutters, doors, facades, and ironwork, some of which was over 150 years old.  The original pieces were carefully removed, cleaned, repaired, and in some cases, replaced.  The metal was first coated with Rust Grip to encapsulate existing rust and provide long-term corrosion protection.  Rust Grip was then top coated to create a darker contemporary finish.

Commercial Roof Repainting Project

Rust Grip and Enamo Grip can be used to breath new life into an older metal roof and protect it for many years.  This aged commercial metal roof was starting to rust but most of the paint was still fairly tight.  After some basic prep, Rust Grip was applied to encapsulate the rust and the firmly bonded paint. Then Enamo Grip is applied over the Rust Grip. For this project, Enamo Grip was custom tinted to a metallic finish to match a new roof on an adjacent building.

Rust Grip Application On A Metal Boat

Rust Grip is also a great all-around general maintenance coating for interior and exterior marine applications.  It can be easily applied with a brush, roller, or sprayer and as a 1-part, 1 coating system, you won’t need any other coatings.  You can use it to encapsulate rust, or over firmly bonded paint on just about any metal surface in coastal areas where there is high exposure to salt.  In this application, Rust Grip was used to refinish and protect the floors, walls, doors, and decks of a metal boat.

Condensation And Corrosion

When chilled pipes are covered with traditional fiberglass insulation, by the time condensation develops on the outside, the insulation has been thoroughly soaked on the inside and acts like a “wet sponge” covering the pipes.  This causes multiple problems.  First of all, this creates the perfect environment for toxic mold to grow, creating serious potential health issues for anyone in the area.  Secondly, this constant exposure to moisture can create severe corrosion that shortens the useful life of the pipes (Corrosion Under Insulation – CUI).  Finally, once fiberglass insulation gets wet, it loses virtually all of its insulative value.  This can happen in a relatively short time, in as little as 2-3 years as was the case with the fiberglass insulation below.
Corrosion Under Insulation - Rust Grip Encapsulation
When the failed fiberglass insulation is removed, you can see what the “wet sponge” effect has on the pipes.  This is the primary cause of corrosion under insulation.

 

Corrosion Under Insulation Before Rust Grip Encapsulation
This is a perfect job for Rust Grip.  After removing pack rust and scale along with some minimal prep; scraping off loose debris and wiping off any residue, 2 coats of Rust Grip are applied.  This will stop corrosion in its tracks.  Rust Grip locks deep into the pores of any rusted surface, completely blocks any air an moisture from reaching it, and then dries to a hardness of 6780 psi (twice as hard as concrete).  Without oxygen and moisture, corrosion cannot continue and the result is a dramatic increase in the life expectancy of any corroded pipes.  Rust Grip can effectively postpone the exorbitant cost and inconvenience of replacement for years to come.

After the Rust Grip application, the pipes are ready for our Anti-Condensation Thermal Pipe Wrap.  This wrap creates an airtight seal, is mold and mildew resistant, and doesn’t absorb moisture like fiberglass.  By using our ceramic-based insulation coatings that effectively reflect an block heat transfer to the cold pipes that cause condensation, our wrap provides many years of carefree performance.  It is far more effective than traditional fiberglass.
