Deserves Its Own Post!

I posted this under Sand Blasting but since I keep seeing this stuff brought up I had to check out. Save money and buy house paint!


"Zero Rust has exceeded 2000 hours at 3.5 mils d.f.t. in the ASTM-Bll7 salt spray tests. This was previously unheard of in an air-dried coating. "

The above was taken from their website!
First 2000 hours in a salt spray test (what % solution?) out of a spray can! And a single component product at that and an Alkalied base product. We stop using this type of paint in the 60's.
Did you know the highest 2 part epoxy will get 1440 hours in a salt spray test and I only know of two over a 1000 out there.

But are they lying ? Hell no! Look at the mills they tested at 3.5!!!! Holycow two coats of epoxy depending on gun used and product will give you .7 to 1 mil average! A new GM paint job is going to come in at 3.5-4.5 mills! To get 3.5 mils out of a spray can
what would you think? 1 can per sq ft?? I would not want to guess.
Spray 3.5 mils of anything and of course it will do well in a salt spray test even house paint!

Figures don't lie but liars figure!

WOW..... At 3.5 DFT it must have some serious solid content not to mention coming out of a spray can. There are many industrial coatings that can get those mils easily when being pushed out, but the salt test results on this stuff is pretty good... cool... Bryan
