    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.

    Of Limited Use! (Posted on 8/4/13)

    I used the Rust Converter on a severely rusted trailer hitch and it worked perfectly. I also used it on a lightly-rusted exhaust pipe off a minibike and it failed miserably; leaving a sticky surface that never hardened. After speaking with an Eastwood rep, it turns out that the Rust Converter only works only works on HEAVILY rusted metal. I guess that a thin layer of surface rust isn't enough to complete the chemical reaction. Also, it turns out that Rust Converter shouldn't be used on metal that will become hot as it will burn off. It would be nice if they provided this information on the website so people don't waste their money on inappropriate products.

    I am using this on a '67Mustang resto. and I am very pleased with the way it turns black which shows if you have missed a spot and the finish takes paint and undercoating very well. It's a little on the pricey side, but it will be worth it in the long run.

    It's far cheaper than the stuff the local marine suppliers are selling to the shipyards. The said not to get it on paint, but I had no problem on my '46 Willys Jeep, even the stuff that got on the paint dried. Covered real well with the Rust Encapsulator.
