In many areas where rust is a continuous problem, the age-old system for dealing with existing rust is to:
- Sandblast for surface prep.
- Apply a primer coat.
- Apply a middle coat.
- Apply a top coat.
This is an old and outdated system that has been locked into place for years without thought to the enormous cost in terms of time and expense. Many projects have been delayed or cancelled because of the extreme costs that come with a three-coat system.
Rust Grip® can, and has been, used over bridges and tough environmental areas with a simple power wash of 3000 psi or less (sometimes with no surface prep) according to the circumstance. A simple one-coat system was then used with a single setup, meaning that once an area is coated and workers move, there is no need to return to perform a second or third application.
This one-coat system eliminates the $4.50 per square foot sandblast cost with a $0.50 per square foot power wash. And the coating time is reduced by 2/3 with one simple setup. Backed by real numbers, the Rust Grip® one-coat system has reduced the bridge application cost by more than 60% and has reduced the encapsulation cost of lead-based paint by 50%. As a result, existing coastline bridges that have had no prep are 3 years old and look like new; 10-11 years with no deterioration.
Rust Grip® applied to a bare metal plate with one coat at only 6 dry mils thickness passed through 15,000 hours (30 years in the field) with a perfect 10 score with no corrosion development. ASTM C117.
Protect your structures with durable, long-lasting, cost-effective coatings from Superior Products International II, Inc.:

Fighting graffiti is an expensive battle, and it can cause permanent damage to properties. SP Super Cleaner/Graffiti Cleaner and Enamo Grip SAS create an effective, cost-efficient solution to graffiti problems.
Without the proper protection against harmful acids or chemicals, your surface will deteriorate quickly, resulting in otherwise preventable costs and repairs.
The protection of concrete from wear and corrosion is difficult, but not with SPI coating products.
SPI coating products are designed to resist condensation, moisture, mildew and mold. Epoxotherm and Moist Metal Grip can be applied to damp surfaces without compromising their effectiveness.
With the rising costs of doing business, energy efficiency has never been more important. Coatings from Superior Products International II, Inc., block heat transfer and outperform fiberglass insulation, especially in wet or small spaces.
Get fireproofing that you can count on with SPI products that have been tested over a range of materials and conditions.
Wear and tear on flooring is dangerous and expensive. The SPI coating products can easily combine with anti-slip elements to provide traction for steel and concrete floors.
According to Land Line Magazine: The Business Magazine for Professional Truckers, Super Therm® can create sizable savings in energy and fueling costs.
High heat can be dangerous for people, livestock, and equipment. So protect your buildings with heat-reducing coatings.
