Rhino Rust Bond Primer Coat Versatile and Cost Effective

DESTIN, FLA. (Nov. 3, 2022) When sandblasting is not practical or cost effective, Rhino Rust Bond, a 100 percent solids epoxy primer, can be used to expertly encapsulate rusted metal surfaces, saving time and money.

Although ideal for cleaning metal, sandblasting often is not an option because of budget limitations, remote location or containment. Mike Moore, AmCoat Director of Products and Applications, said blasting is the standard, but more and more, AmCoat is seeing the need for a cost-effective alternative for non-critical infrastructure.

“Blasting will always be the ideal and mandated process for important infrastructure,” said Moore. “But sometimes a practical option is necessary for other applications. Rhino Rust Bond has been used on poles, towers, I-beams, metal roofs, containers, tanks, and anywhere corrosion is a concern.”

Rhino Rust Bond’s versatility makes it a prime solution when budget, location or blasting containment are barriers to a prepping and encapsulating rust.

“One of our most important projects was working with Ashanti Gold to protect gold mining and processing equipment in West African jungles,” said Moore. “It was impractical to bring blasting equipment into these remote locations so Ashanti opted to apply Rhino Rust Bond to encapsulate and protect their equipment.”

Rhino Rust Bond, a two-part 100 percent solids epoxy loaded with rust inhibitors, has multiple advantages, says Moore.

“Because it is 100 percent solids, it offers superior edge retention, where corrosion often starts,” said Moore. “Most coatings shrink away from edges as they cure but Rhino Rust Bond holds fast without shrinking.”

A cost-effective primer solution, Rhino Rust Bond goes on as thin as 600 square feet per gallon and is typically less than 25 cents per square foot.

“Rhino Rust Bond primer is designed for strong direct to metal and direct to surface rust adhesion,” said Moore. “For rust that is flaking, scaling, or pitted, more aggressive hand and power tool cleaning is required.”

According to Terence Andre, CEO of AmCoat, Rhino Rust Bond’s superior design and versatility make it a popular option to blasting.

“Rhino Rust Bond stands out because of its superior adhesion and versatility,” said Andre. “Corrosion authority NACE International puts the global cost of corrosion at $2.5 trillion — which is equivalent to 3.4 percent of the global GDP. Using available corrosion prevention measures, worldwide savings are estimated at 15 to 35 percent of the cost of corrosion — that’s between $375 and $875 billion every year. This is an important area of focus and Rhino Rust Bond will be an important part of our coatings moving forward.”

Veteran-Owned and made in the U.S.A., Rhino Rust Bond is the premier primer alternative for surface rust.
