Thanks Mr. Bandit. I wonder if this is a project that can be done in the garage during the winter or the body has to be warm?

Never heard of this Encapsulatorstuff, anyone else heard of it. Maybe that'* something we should look into Bandit.

I found the article I have on both products. The writer used a rusty hood that was outside for nearly a year, did a half and half and left it outside for another four months along with hitting it with a salt spray and three weeks of rain.

The jist of the test:
-The POR-15 was more expensive
-The POR-15 was more difficult to thin out (both products were sprayed)
-The POR-15 took longer to cure than what the can indicated.
-The POR-15 displayed a little bit of shrinkage, where the Encapsulator didn't
-The POR-15 ended up looking worse as far as orange peel and such, making it not so ideal for painting over
-And the worst part was that there were areas where the rust from an unsprayed portion of the hood was creeping under the POR-15, but didn't happen with the Encapsulator.

The writers conclusion was that both products were good, but he would trust the Eastwood Rust Encapsulator more for restorations since it didn't exhibit the rust creeping.

POR-15 can also be sprayed. I don't know if the cure time the author read was a general time, or specifically for spraying.

I've seen quite a few people that feel the opposite of you, and find the RE to be a better product.

By the way, I've never used either product, just passing along info I've found.

I had contacted Eastwood a while ago, and they sent me this email regarding my original question of how they would recommend that I stop my rust:

Quote:
Radomir,
Welcome to the world of Eastwood products... I would recommend our Rust Converter Qt sized kit #12559 @ $39.99 followed by a top-coat of our Rust Encapsulator #16065zp @ $29.99 24-hrs after applying the converter. This will kill & convert the rust, seal the converted surface & act as a primer for any top-coatr you should choose. Good Luck & Thanks for contacting us... I hope we can help you w/ your project. Have a GREAT weekend!!!
