MANY PRODUCTS CLAIM TO STOP RUST; SOME ARE PAINTS, SOME ARE CONVERSION PRODUCTS, SOME ARE RUST TREATMENTS. NONE SEEM TO REALLY STOP RUST PERMANENTLY. WHY IS POR-15 DIFFERENT, AND WHY SHOULD YOU BELIEVE IT WILL WORK ANY BETTER?
Rust is caused by moisture coming in contact with metal, which causes a chemical action called oxidation. All paints provide a measure of protection for a while, but since they are eventually softened and weakened by moisture, it is only a matter of time before moisture penetrates the painted surface and attacks the metal below. All of the so-called rust preventive paints on the market (except POR-15) are weakened by exposure to moisture. POR-15 is strengthened by exposure to moisture. Notice the hardness of the POR-15 coating. It doesn't chip, crack, or peel like ordinary paints do, and its hardness will resist the wear and tear of every day life.
Rust conversion products claim to change the chemical nature of rust and convert it to a more stable element that won't rust again. History of the failure of these products is well documented. Most simply don't work for more than a few months at best, and they are subject to the same chipping and cracking that occurs with ordinary rust coatings.
POR-15 works because it chemically bonds to rusted metal and forms a rock-hard, non-porous coating that won't crack, chip, or peel. It keeps moisture away from metal with a coating that is strengthened by continued exposure to moisture.
RUST PREVENTATIVE COATING POR-15 is a high- performance coating designed for application directly on rusted or seasoned metal surfaces. It is non-porous and seals and protects many surfaces from water, chemicals, salt, and other corrosive contaminants. POR-15 is an effective anti-corrosive and rust preventive coating that offers superior chemical resistance due to its dense, cross-linked molecular composition and non-porous attributes.
The secret lies in the curing process. Most paints dry through evaporation, but POR-15® dries faster when moisture is present. It has the opposite chemistry of ordinary paints. Now add to that POR-15's incredible hardness, toughness, and flexibility and you have a coating that is practically indestructible. POR-15 is great for auto restoration, and protecting valuable equipment against rust and corrosion.
