    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.

    Used this in areas of heavy rust; the spray pattern was great nice and wide. Did a good job turning rust. In lighter areas where I could sand the rust it was not as effectively. However I always follow up with the rust encapsolater to address all rust.
    Great product (Posted on 7/10/14)

    This stuff works great over sound rust, but don't put it over any painted area. I wire brush off all loose rust and apply 2 coats and let it dry for 3 days and then apply 2 coats of rust encapulator and you can be sure it will last for years. I have used these products since Eastwood started selling them and they do work, but you must follow their application directions.

    DO NOT SPRAY ON NON-RUSTED METAL!!! (Posted on 10/22/13)

    Really not spelled out anywhere in instructions, however, if Eastwood Rust Converter is sprayed onto bare or painted metal adjacent to your rust repair, IT WILL REMAIN TACKY & CAUSE RUST. Eastwood Tech Rep verified this issue. Really difficult to use out of a spray can for treating areas that are not fully involved with rust. Beware. Use Eastwood Pre or acetone to remove and start your project over. Better instruction clarity would have prevented this error.

    Rust converter modifies my Grandma's saying - It won't rust,bust, or tear up on us." Cause with old cars we all know they do rust. Eastwood's fine product makes her statement true again. Excellent product as with all Eastwood' s items I've purchased in the last 35 years.
