Attached are photos of our barn before and
after applying the Rust Bullet product.
The barn is a metal clad wood composite with
galvanized and painted surfaces (Barn
The bottom of the walls on the interior of
the stalls are deep bedded and frequently in
contact with damp straw and manure for much
of the winter.
As a result, the paint is oxidized in places
and there was a lot of rust and scale on the
galvanized metal framing around the panels.
The barn is about 8-9 years old, now, and
houses horses and dairy goats.
We began the surface prep by pressure
washing the walls and removing the rubber
mats on the floors. We used a disc sander
to remove as much of the rust as possible
from the metal surface areas as well as to
lightly scarify the painted surfaces and
oxidized areas of the walls.
We used masking tape to edge the area to be
painted and then applied two coats of Rust
Bullet around the entire base of the stalls,
in one case a foot high around the perimeter
and on the rest about 4-6 inches up from the
floor. The Rust Bullet was applied by hand
with a paint brush. I allowed 24 hours
The RB went on very well, better than latex
paint, I thought. Very good coverage on the
first application. I applied it thoroughly
and after the second application, removed
the masking tape and could see a definite
"film" or thickness of material on the
We still have a couple of stalls to do but
will wait until later this summer to
complete them. Will keep you posted.
