An excellent choice for any project that requires a coating to perform in less-than-ideal situations, Carboline’s new Rustbond PS ultra-low-VOC epoxy primer/sealer is designed to improve coating adhesion to minimally prepared substrates with superior surface tolerance.

Rustbond PS can help save time and money by minimizing surface preparation requirements for new construction, maintenance and overcoating projects. Featuring excellent wicking characteristics that penetrate and seal the existing surface, it offers strong adhesion to a variety of substrates—increasing the coating system’s long-term performance. The coating places very low stress on substrates during application and cure, making it ideal for areas where surface preparation methods are restricted and/or forbidden for non-immersion service.

It can be top-coated with a wide range of coatings, allowing customers to employ Rustbond PS as a universal primer and tie-coat. Featuring an extended pot life at higher temperatures to minimize waste, the coating cures down to 35°F (1.7°C) with Additive 8505, allowing for year-round application. It can be applied via brush, roller and spray, demonstrating a broader tolerance of dry film thickness.
