RexShield Metal penetrates into the surface capillaries of metal via a covalent bond. This means that it becomes inseparable from the surface of the metal. Because it is applied in such a thin layer on metals it does not change the way the metal was meant to look. If applied on brand new copper after 5 years the copper will look the the same as the day it was applied.
Metal railings, bridges, marine structures, exposed beams, gutters, light fixtures and air conditioning equipment can all be protected with RexShield Metal.
Yes, steel bolts when exposed to air, salt or water over time will start to oxidize and rust. Once this happens it can become increasingly difficult to screw and unscrew the bolts. Even though repeated abrasion can wear down the RexShield coating the bolts will last much longer. RexShield Metal is a transparent penetrating sealer that prevents moisture and oxygen from coming in contact with the surface of the metal. This prevents rust and oxidation.
Yes, iron is highly susceptible to rusting and RexShield can greatly improve the longevity of iron. It does this by penetrating into the surface of iron so that it cannot oxidize.
There are a wide variety of paints used on metals to prevent rust. This includes enamels, organic paints, powder coatings and epoxies. Eventually, due to their surface bond most paints will wear down and degrade. One of the best paints to use on metal is a mineral based paint because they use silicates which have a longer life expectancy.
Yes, RexShield Metal will improve the bond of paints to metal. It will also make them harder. For aesthetics it will restore the brilliance of a faded paint. There is some preparation required, such as a light abrasion with a scotch guard, or similar. Contact our technical staff for more information.
Yes, RexShield Metal can be applied with a microfiber or sprayed with a variety of sprayers. The simplest way to spray it is with a pump sprayer but it can also be applied with an airless sprayer or HVLP. There is often less material waste when RexShield Metal is rolled or wiped on a surface but this is not always practical. Some metals like heavy machinery, tools, gears and other equipment do not have smooth surfaces. It is therefore much easier to just spray these surfaces. Be sure to spray from the bottom up and don’t overspray or you can get drips!
RexShield provides an extremely durable and corrosion resistant surface. This is a technology that has been used in the marine industry for over 75 years. By using RexShield you are providing your steel with long lasting protection against the elements.
