I posted the following in a non-exterior prolific forum and got no response, same as the above query from '03. I won't copy the web-link, but if you are curious like I am you can Google the name of the product.

Been reading about this product supposedly used by Army, Navy, Air Force, NATO, etc., written up by Street Rodder magazine, My Classic Car and distributed by Snap-On among others. Sounds good, but I've not heard of it before encountering in my endless search to do-it better, easier, cheaper. Anyone had an experience good or otherwise with this product?

When I first came here I too was searching for a "miracle" rust cure but after researching some different types and trying a couple it seems that rust cures and cures for baldness have a lot in common, that is they all claim to work miracles and have raving reviews to prove it but in reality they do little. There would be a HUGE market for something that could really do what these "rust cures" claim and if they did work as claimed then the big outfits like Dupont, PPG and others would make it but they don't so one must ask, why not?

I stumbled on their web site last week by way of My Classic Car web page. Was my first intro to them so I read their info with interest. Having read about Por 15 and an Eastwood Rust Encapsulator as well as chemical stripping/E-coating I find a difference in cost of over $8,000 to get rid of rust and coat against a recurrance. I guess since no one responded to the earlier thread for nearly 3 years I can write off the Evapo stuff. It seemed interesting as to the official organizations said to be users as well as magazine articles and a major tool distributor involved in distribution. Just as I won't try to replace the red hair I once had, I won't waste my time using a product to beat rust that hasn't been recommended by an honest rebuilder.

Products like POR 15 and Rust Encapsulator get a lot of good reviews, but really, from who? A lot of hype from the manufacturer and from consumers who may or may not be actually getting the results they think they are and from magazine articles taking care of their advertisers. As far as "honest rebuilders" that would recommend a rust "cure" just how honest can a rebuilder that would cover up rust be? If you think about it these products might work on open areas that you can apply them to but these are the areas where the rust can be (should be) removed relatively easy anyway. It's the areas where the rust is inaccessible such as between seams and overlapping panels where rust hides and is hard to remove that is the real problem and it should be apparent that these "cures" cannot stop rust they can't touch. If one of these products did everything it claims it would have to be able to somehow creep down between the overlapping panels and stop the hidden rust there and I just don't think such a product exits no matter what they claim. Rust on open panels can and should be removed by media blasting, sanding/grinding or chemical removal (not covered up) and I just don't believe there is a miracle cure for trapped rust. This is JMO and others may disagree but a rusty panel covered with whatever is still RUSTY! and it would seem that a properly prepared panel sprayed with a good EPOXY offers the best means to prevent rust.

Resto, Just for the record, and I should have been a little more clear, I was talking about the rust converters mentioned and not rust removers. Rust removers it would seem do have their place since that is the aim anyway, to REMOVE the rust
