Exceptional Product Line 

What makes Advanced Protective Products different from all the others? The company makes patented rust-converting coatings. On the other hand, most products on the market are only rust inhibitors. It means that rust inhibitors only slow down the corrosion process, while the Advanced Protective Products coatings convert rusted surfaces into paintable surfaces in one step, with excellent adhesion to all metal surfaces, rusted or clean, such as tin, steel, core tan steel, galvanized metal, zinc, and aluminum. The result is a satin finish that may be painted over for additional environmental protection or appearance or left as it is. With their unique properties, the company’s products can be used in various applications, from tricycles to battleships.  


Recognition and Awards 

Both Rust Knockout® and Rust Destroyer® have been approved by the Petro China Company Limited. This gives the company’s products a passport for use on their pipelines. Furthermore, the company’s business was eligible for 2014 Best of Fair Lawn Business Hall of Fame after receiving the Best of Fair Lawn, NJ award seven years in a row.
