The truck bed was prepped to a clean, dry and sound condition ready to accept 2 coats of RUST GRIP ® applied crosshatched at 200 sf per gallon per coat all in one day. The RUST GRIP ® coating has a thickness of only 10 - 16 mils WFT = 5 - 8 mils DFT (5- 8/1000") and weighs 9 lbs. It can also be applied at a greater thickness.
RUST GRIP ® actually becomes part of the metal therefore it is impossible to pull it off. It has a tensile strength of 6,750 psi which is equal to US highway concrete and because it cures to 0 porosity any cargo will have a far less tendency to stick.
Because the RUST GRIP ® coating was done during the regular maintenance shutdown it was allowed in excess of two weeks to ensure maximum cure before going into service.
