Rust Encapsultor ?
Anyone use this product? I need to coat and protect the under carriage of my 86 CUCV from the salt we use up north here.
I've used POR15
and have no XP with Rust Encapsulator.
I wont make believe there is zero bias in the comparison. I have no opinion of the bias.
I'm not trying to change your mind, just offer another datapoint for you to compare, and I'm sorry I can't yea/nay.
I looked at the POR stuff and got some mixed opinions from a multitude of users. Some said it was great , while others were not so kind in its ability to be forgiving.
I dont plan on a frame off restoration , just want to seal the expossed metal before the winters take their toll. This truck came from a place with no salt, so there is very little rust to deal with now, but after three years of me having it and not having protection, i can see where it will be starting soon.
Maybe look at sandblasting any areas that are just starting and undercoating it after you use the encapsulater as a primer/sealer?
Ought make the vehicle a little quieter regarding road noise in some cases, too.
I know there are folks with more useful experience than I have will be along soon.
I wish you good fortune.
My son just painted the undercarriage of his '86 M1009 with POR15 and topcoated it with Rustoleum. It remains to be seen how well it will hold up. I use Fluid Film and have used it for years. I have to apply it every year but putting it in a sprayer and hosing down the undercarriage is pretty easy and has worked well for stopping rust.
