Rust converter is a synthetic polymer formula that converts existing rust into a black inert paintable surface at the end, prevents further rusting of the object. Let’s see how it works.
How to Use Rust Converter
We have a wheel that is pretty well covered in rust, but before we can apply the rest converter, we need to make sure we have the proper PPE on to apply a rust converter. You should have protective gloves, eye wear, and proper ventilation. Oh, and now we’ve got our PPR and what’s the first step to applying rust converter. The first thing to do is remove any dirt grit, loose rust flakes or scale. You can do this by using a wire brush. You don’t want to remove all rust, just what’s loose. Then wipe the abject clean before applying the product.
We’ll be applying it with a paintbrush rust. Converter does also come into other formulas, a sprayable for airless and compression sprayers, and an aerosol to apply a rust converter, pour some into a small container. You don’t need a lot because if you have extra the used rest converter, can’t go back in the original container. Then just dip the brush into the rest converter and use your brush to apply coating the areas with rust.
How many coats do you need to put on?
The paint on version we’re using today will require two coats. The other two formulas will require more. The spray on version requires three coats and the aerosol will actually require four. It looks like we’ve got the first coat pretty much on Mount.
How long does it take to dry before we can apply?
Drawing time between coats will take about 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the conditions, humidity and temperature will actually affect the drying time. Once it is dry enough for the second coat, it will change to a purple issue, which you can see that it’s actually starting to do. Now letting you know that it actually is ready for a second coat. Once the two coats of rust converter have been applied, the rest converter does need to cure to turn the rest into an inner black form. How long does that typically take
That typically takes about 48 hours after that you can apply an oil based paint.
So overall not too difficult or time consuming process for cleanup rust. Converter is water-based all you need is soap and water to clean your brush and container. If you plan on reusing them. Make sure you dispose of any rest converter product you’ve poured out. Adding the used reskin converter back into the original container will cause contamination.
