Useing Rusfre

Has anyone used this product? I sprayed the inside of my panels yesterday and it still is wet to touch. I knew it stayed a little sticky, but Im getting a little worried. I had to go over floors etc with mineral spirits as the overspray had them all gummy.

Back from the dead!

This was the only post that mention Rusfre.

Does anyone have a review of this product? I am looking to use a brush on undercoat on the cheap. This seems to fit the bill.

Thanks!

Wow...as old as this post is, you may want to repost it as a new post and ask your question, or just go ahead and order the Rustfre, use it, and then go ahead and let us all know how it worked out! The price sure doesn't sound too bad.

I like to search and start as few new threads as possible. This was the only thread on the topic that arose.

In another search I found the product a bit cheaper. As well as a few different products by the same manufacturer.

The one that catches my eye is this one:

"Chunky Stuff"... It sounds kind of gross, but It looks like it's just what the doctor ordered. A brush on with a high build.

just remember, once you start with this kind of stuff your stuck with it. i have people calling asking if i can blast it off . no way is that stuff getting into my blast booth. there is no magical cure for rust. get rid of it and epoxy it.

I understand what you're saying! At least this time there's some feedback on the post. The last undercoating I used was in a spraycan. I think I still have some on the shelf. I need to get rid of stuff man!

In some states undercoating is a MUST.Some brands never dry ...3-M has a Paintable undercoating that gets hard ,its called Body Shultz... there are other brands that come in an aresol can but they must say "Paintable" if you want them to get hard....
Just spraying it over rust inside a door wont be so good ,it'll trap and seal the moisture in and make it worse,later on....what I do for a "quick fix" is to spray in some ospho first and let it dry a couple days then use the paintable under coating...
inside the doors must be dry, use an air blower a few times...
Blasting and epoxy primer IS the best way if your going to keep the car a long time...
Lacquer thinner will get that goo out....wear gloves...

I took the plunge and purchased the product I linked. Rusfre - Chunky Stuff. I have next week off. I think I'll do a base coat of Rustoleum on the bare steel and then use the chunky stuff.

I live in Maine and dont have a garage. My rig is tarped up on the rare occasion I am not driving it. Ill post a full review upon useing the product.

all the cars they undercoated in the 50's - 60's rusted out worse than the ones left bare. reason being the bare metal would dry out. the undercoat creates a rust hotel. i wont even touch a car with heavy undercoat because i know what is under it. best hope you never get any water inside because there is no place for it to go.

I started the project today. Rusfre - Chunk Stuff has the cosistancy of peanut butter. The stuff is THICK! I did one coat in one wheel well to try it out. It has been a few hours now. The high spots are still very wet. I think it will take a few days to cure. The stuff makes a HUGE mess. I am covered. I am glad I did it over the lawn.

So far so good. The product is as advertised. It is still really to early to tell anymore than that.
