    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 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 6/4/2012)

    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!!!!!!
    rust becomes rock-hard (Posted on 5/6/2012)

    I used this on the battery tray for my F100. The metal was rusted so bad that the thickness was nearly 1" of flaky rust. After working in rust converter with a stiff brush and numerous applications -until when dry, no more orange color, all black, the metal was so hard and ready for paint that I could not even scratch it with a screwdriver. Now I have the edge of my battery tray is still one inch thick, and rock-hard. Rust never sleeps, convert it!

    I started with a 70+ year old car and am turning it into a rust free Street Rod. Every part gets wire brushed to remove all loose rust before getting sprayed or brushed with Eastwood Rust Converter and than top coated with Eastwood Rust encapsulator. The underside of my project looks straight from the factory. I gave a quart of Converter to my Son-in-law and he loves it. I got a spray bottle from a home improvement store that work sgreat and has an adjustable nozzle, also picked up some foam brushes. PS remember to sake the bottle before spraying/brushing

    I used the aerosal can and sparyed a metal trunk header piece. Started out O.K. and turned nice black in about 12 hours. I let it sit for about 3 days. Going to prime the piece and started to wipe it down with some Prep. "Pre" from here and it started to flake off. Stopped wiping and let it dry another two days. Primed it and it looked good. One week later the primer is bubled and you can scratch it all off with your finger and rust iis forming under it. What gives. just glad i didn't top it yet. I did the rest of the parts with fast etch and much better results. DO NOT use this unless the parts are really rusted in my opinion, otherwise it will just sit on the metal and never fully dry. I prob will not use this again.

    Product was put on sanded metal surface that had rust only in pittd areas. Stuff never seemed to dry or convert the rusted pits. If it is not cleaned well off base metal, it attacks the primer coat and cause more blistering/rust.
