Rust Converter is Now Available in a Convenient Aerosol Spray
Quick and easy-to-use, Rust Converter Aerosol formula stops rust on iron and steel surfaces and converts it into a black coating that seals out moisture and protects against future corrosion. No brushes, rollers or clean up necessary with the easy-to-apply aersosol spray. The converted rust acts as a primer and can be painted over with an oil-based top-coat. To use, simply remove any loose rust from the surface with a wire brush. Apply several thin coats of Rust Converter Aerosol and allow to cure completely (typically 48 hours) before painting. If the item will be outdoors, we recommend an oil-based paint topcoat for long-term protection. If the item will be inside, a top-coat is optional.
One aerosol can covers approximately 25 square feet of rusted metal. Porous and irregular surfaces will require a heavier application rate. Rust Converter Aerosol has a one year shelf life. Detailed instructions are provided on the can. 13 oz. aerosol can. Made in the USA.
How does it work? Rust Converter, a water-based primer, contains two active ingredients: Tannic acid and an organic polymer. The first ingredient, tannic acid, reacts with iron oxide (rust) and chemically converts it to iron tannate, a dark-colored stable material. Tannins are a group of water- and alcohol-soluble natural products extracted from fruits, trees and grasses. The second active ingredient, 2-Butoxyethanol, is an organic polymer that provides a protective primer layer. The overall chemical reaction converts rust into a stable, black protective polymeric coating.
Applications for Rust Converter include: vehicles, trailers, fences, iron railings, sheet metal, outside of tanks, lawn equipment, and more. Rust Converter is not intended for use on high heat surfaces.
We recommend using Rust Converter Aerosol within one year of purchase date.
