Rust Grip-E is a two-part epoxy coating system that has been designed with specific additives to promote adhesion when used on metal and contains metal pigment to strengthen coating and retard chalking. Rust Grip-E was developed to be applied to metal surfaces that cannot be dry enough to use traditional Rust Grip®. It can be used directly to wet or damp metal surfaces and maintain excellent adhesion to prevent further surface corrosion. It is a water repelling epoxy for use under water or in areas where constant splashing or condensation is a problem. It is resistant to chemicals and solvents, and is designed to be applied directly to concrete, masonry and metal. Rust Grip-E must be top-coated to prevent chalking.
