For all YOUR rust protection needs from tricycles to battleships!


Rust is a costly global problem, and we've got the economical and environmentally responsible solutions!

Why are our products different from all the others? We make patented rust converting coatings. Most other products on the market are only rust inhibitors. What does that mean? The rust inhibitors only slow down the corrosion process, while our coatings convert rusted surfaces into paintable surfaces in one easy step, with superior adhesion to all metal surfaces, clean or rusted, such as steel, core tan steel, tin, zinc, galvanized metal, and aluminium. The result is a satin finish that may be left as is or painted over for additional environmental protection or appearance.

With their unique, special properties our products can be used in a wide variety of applications, from tricycles to battleships.

How does it work? It's magic! X-Ray Diffraction Spectroscopy (XRD) lab testing shows that there is no rust under the painted area.

Both Rust Destroyer® and Rust Knockout® are approved by the Petro China Company Limited. Pipeline Company. R&D Center Lab. This is the passport for the use of these products on the pipelines. Isn't it nice to have products made in the USA going to China?

After winning Best of Fair Lawn, NJ award for seven consecutive years, this distinction qualified our company for the 2014 Best of Fair Lawn Business Hall of Fame

At the National Hardware Show we were interviewed on TV. You can see the interview on our home page.

Advanced Protective Products has been manufacturing and marketing Rust Destroyer®, the universal base rust converting coating, since 1982. During this time, Rust Destroyer® has been approved by Meadowlands Race Track, Giants Stadium, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of the Navy, New York Transit Authority, Electric power generating companies, Railroad companies, Wastewater treatment plants, Korean Register of Shipping, Korean Highway Research Department, Korean Highway Corporation, Korean Classification society, and Singapore Industrial Standard Research, to name a few.

Looking ahead to the next millennium, we've developed, and are manufacturing and marketing Rust Knockout®, the waterborne version of Rust Destroyer®. Rust Knockout® has an insignificant VOC of 30 grams/liter as well as some acid, alkali, and solvent resistance. Both Rust Destroyer® and Rust Knockout® are approved by the Korean Register of Shipping.

And that's not all! We've also developed, and are manufacturing and marketing Fast Dry Rust Destroyer®, a solvent based product with an insignificant VOC of 65 grams/liter. Time is money and Fast Dry Rust Destroyer® dries to touch in 10 minutes! This eliminates all the restrictions everywhere, even in the south coast of CA where there is a VOC limit of 100 grams.liter.

All 3 products are easy-to-use, one step systems that can be applied directly over rust, bare metal, and previously painted surfaces. Before applying, just remove loose or scaling particles, grease, and dirt so that you are working with a firm, parintable surface. No sandblasting, scraping to bare metal, or sanding is needed.
