Rust Bullet, LLC Announces Rust Bullet® DuraGrade Concrete

Reno, NV, July 23, 2018 — “Our DuraGrade products not only provide a lower VOC option for those concerned with the preservation of our environment, or are required to comply with stricter VOC regulations, they provide phenomenal protection with best in the industry performance! DuraGrade Concrete exceeded the capacity of the ASTM testing apparatus/limits in three of the five tests. During the pull-off adhesion bond strength test, the concrete broke apart before DuraGrade lost adhesion. This is unheard of in our industry,” said David Ciglar, General Manager, Rust Bullet, LLC.

“We used DuraGrade Concrete to seal our warehouse floor and mezzanine. The product was easy to apply, and adhesion appears unbreakable. We couldn’t be happier,” said John Dunlap, CEO,

DuraGrade Concrete has outstanding adhesion to concrete surfaces and is scratch, chip, chemical and UV resistant, requiring no primer, basecoat, or topcoat. DuraGrade’s patent pending formula is low in VOCs (49 gram per liter – 170 gram per liter) providing VOC compliance in all 50 states and is available in 18 standard colors or a custom color option. It is easy to apply by brush, roller, or spray equipment. It protects from hot tire pickup. It is ideal for indoor or outdoor surfaces.

Additional Rust Bullet® products are available to further enhance DuraGrade Concrete. Rust Bullet® Color Flakes can be applied on top of DuraGrade Concrete for a stylistic finish, and DuraGrade Clear can be used as a sleek topcoat for maximum aesthetic value.
