rust supression

Recommended Posts

Hey guys need a good long term rust inhibitor for metal. Must be able to be applied by some one at home. Must be able to handle 20plus year in soil. I have read about a few epoxy paints but they all see mto require some crazy spray rigs and ovens.

personally I would separate wood or plastic seal in one bag with an o2 absorber then in the other bag the treated metal parts.

 

ammo can be placed in a bag with this once sealed should last the test of time of the bag above

oxygen is you enemy as long as you can eliminate it and treat the air in the bag you chances are good the

contents will survive without rust.

POR 15 is the shiznit but it is really expensive especially for a project that size. I used it on my jeep frame and it was insanely tough and easy to work with. Hoss is right cement or maybe a concrete epoxy might be cheaper. If you do use POR 15 remember to coat it with another layer of normal paint if it is going to sit in the sun before you bury it, it's uv reactive. I used a coating of bedliner over the POR when I did my frame and it worked well.
