New Product Announcement: Anti-Rust Spray Paint

MONDAY, JUNE 20, 2022

Spray paint brand Krylon recently announced the release of its new spray paint with an anti-rust technology to protect metal surfaces from rusting and corrosion. Krylon Rust Tough can be applied directly to metal surfaces without priming.

According to the emailed press release, Rust Tough is a new and improved formula that provides 40% stronger protection against corrosion compared to its predecessor Rust Protector.

“Rain and UV exposure is hard on most materials and even tougher on ones like metal,” said Melinda Childress, Krylon Product Manager. “Krylon’s Rust Tough protects metal by providing 40% stronger corrosion fighting protection for aluminum, steel and other metal surfaces. It also resists fading, keeping outdoor projects looking great.”

Krylon notes that with the shift towards remote work and families spending more time at home together, outdoor living spaces are becoming an “extension of the home.” Homeowners are also dedicating more time to outdoor home improvement projects, including refinishing damaged or aging outdoor furniture or repurposing other pieces for outdoor use.

“As home improvement season is upon us, we want to give homeowners a solution to help extend the life of much-loved furniture pieces and keep outdoor living spaces beautiful year after year,” continued Childress. “Krylon Rust Tough makes it easy to tackle all outdoor updates on to-do lists like refreshing metal mailboxes, updating aluminum patio furniture, restoring outdoor light fixtures, reviving steel address plaques and more.” 

The company reports that Rust Tough is convenient and simple to use without sanding or priming required, featuring a spray-any-way comfort tip. The paint also reportedly dries in as little as 30 minutes.

Rust Tough is available in stores now in both aerosol and brush-on offerings in a variety of finishes, including flat to high-gloss, and a wide selection of colors. For larger projects, Rust Tough is also available in a VOC-compliant brush-on option with an array of enamels, primers and tintable enamels.
