    About Eastwood Rust Converter

    This high-tech formula halts residual rust in its tracks and converts it into a black protective polymeric coating that eliminates the need for sanding. The converted protective coating is a suitable primer, and is compatible with most top coats. Additionally, the protective coating will seal the surface against moisture to prevent future rust growth. Simply remove loose rust with a wire brush, then apply Eastwood’s Rust Converter. Allow to dry, then top coat it with a quality coating, such as Eastwood’s Chassis Black. Single component; no more mixing.

    Due to regulations pertaining to paint recycling, at this time we are unable to ship the aerosol to Alberta, Canada.

    Safety

    Always use appropriate eye, skin, and respiratory protection when using this product. Safety information is also described on the container. Consult MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for proper safety requirement.


    Application

    Eastwood Rust Converter will convert areas only where rust is present. If there is no rust present, there will be nothing for the product to react with and adhere to. You will only see it convert rust in the areas where rust is present.

    The surface should be clean and dry before application of Rust Converter. If moisture is present or the surface is damp, it can cause the product to dry milky white or not adhere to surface.

    When preparing the surface, it is important not to take it down to the bare metal. If this occurred, a metal primer is needed in place of the rust converter. To prepare the surface, remove loose particles of rust and debris with a wire brush or rag. Remove any grease, oil, or salt residue using PRE. Please note that any residue left on the surface will interfere with the adhesion of the product.

    Eastwood Rust Converter should be stored in a cool dry place, protected from freezing or temperatures above 100 degreesF. Optimum results are obtained when the surface temperature and the product are between 50 degreesF and 95 degreesF. Do not apply if the surface temperature is below 50 degreesF as it will take longer for the product to react and form a hard surface. This can also cause the product to dry milky white or not fully adhere to the rust. If the temperature of the surface is significantly higher than 95 degreesF, it can cause some of the components to evaporate too quickly and interfere with adhesion.

    Application — It is important to apply a thin coat first and allow it to dry before applying a second coat. Allow the surface to cure for 48 hours and protect it from moisture, rain or dew. On thick areas or deep encrustations of rust, it is important to wire-brush these areas to as level to the surface as possible without removing all the rust. The product will absorb into deep rust, leaving little product on the surface, resulting in rust bleed-through if not properly prepped.

    i used it at my shop in new hampshire for restorations , there is lots of rust in new england. and it worked very well, now that i have a shop in arizona there is less rust to deal with ,it seems to work better here. i seem to remember 15 years ago it seemed thicker and i used to thin it to get it to spray right.

    Well, these sprays are ok, if the rust is only surface/topical. For that it works pretty well. I was hoping to repair a few difficult to reach spots and coat with Rust Encapsulator. Not so well. The thicker rust, I brushed with a wire brush as advertised and sprayed it down. The edges where the rust was very superficial turned black... as advertised. The heavier rusted areas just got minimally darker. No additional change. I decided it had to be that the rust was just too thick and cut the offensive areas out, or rather stopped at 2 spots as the rust was discovered to be just slightly thicker than the superficial rusty areas.
    If your project has difficult to reach areas, where you just cant get to the spot to clear really good, I'm hitting it with Encapsulator. If the spot is a floorboard that I just don't want to mess with, I'll use Rust convertor.
    I am very pleased with Eastwood parts and service. I have purchased sprays, paints, chemicals and a welder from them. This is a reputable company and I appreciate they're expertise and selection.

    Very happy with the results. Used it to convert rust on a 94' 4runner frame that was rusted significantly.
    Tough Curing (Posted on 10/9/12)

    I had the curing resistance issue mentioned by other reviewers. Four days after "converting" my set of brake drums they still felt tacky / gummy. I set them outside every morning, out of direct sun, and broght them in every evening. When it appeared I was going to have to strip them I decided to try direct sun, and good thing I did. After two 90-degree-plus days baking in the hot sun, they're dry and hard as a rock, a fine surface for flat black heat dissipating paint. For a sticky under-frame? Not sure how to cure; maybe the heat gun mentioned is your best bet!
    Don't Use Unless the Item is Heavily Rusted (Posted on 10/2/12)

    I purchased a kit of different coatings from Eastwoods some time ago just to try. I found the rust encapsulator seems to work ok but I won't use the converter again. It might be good on a frame that is solid rust but it seems if there is any paint or non-rusted metal left it just stays sticky and paint won't adhere to it. I cleaned two fender braces and tried this product, big mistake. Some areas didn't dry after two weeks and the primer paint just blistered up.

    Brushed my frame with a wire brush, wiped it down with Pre and brushed on rust converter just like the video shows. The parts that I have hit so far already look 10 times better. Tomorrow I start with rust encapsulater, but so far truly impressed with the rust fighting program.

    I have used Eastwood products on multiple projects. The Rust Converter performs extremely well on car frames. I have even used it on the pipe fence which surrounds my property. Like all Eastwood products it does not disappoint. I plan on using Rust Converter on my next project ( a 1953 Chevy P/U). Boy there's some rust to convert on this one.
    Must have rust to dry! (Posted on 6/4/12)

    Dave is right. It seems there must still be at least a little layer of rust on the entire surface in order to dry, other wise it just stays sticky. Especially if you spray it on too thick. It's like the rust is an "activator". Even then, just do light coats. Frankly, I would just forget this stuff and go right to the "Rust Encapsulator" as you can get it in black, silver and red, and it works more like you expect, like on VW seat spring assembly.

    I am using this on a 69 mach 1 i am restoring. It works just as advertised. Dries as it should, and really does a great job converting the metal to a solid paitable surface. I have had no issues of it not drying, peeling or flaking like othere seem to have. If you follow the directions, it will save you countless of hours and dollars in your project!!!! I continue to use it, and will again in the future!!!!!!
