    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.

    Works great on rust...watch bare and painted surfaces (Posted on 1/29/2010)

    I just began using the product on my 77 MGB project car which has a lot of rust. So far I wire brushed the rust and cleaned all surfaces. After application, the results were as advertised. My only concern (my fault...not fully following directions) was the spray coverage on bare and painted surfaces. It formed a sticky film that I could only get off with MEK. I tried priming over the sticky surface, but the primer did not adhear (As STATED in the direction!). I am confident this product will arrest the rust and provide a suitable primer surface. Thanks Eastwood. Bobby

    I've used a couple of different rust converters and found Eastwood's to be extremely competitive with other brands. I was a little skeptical of the aerosol, but it worked as advertised and I was pleasantly surprised. It's great to get into those hard to reach areas. I would recommend this product not only for the performance but also for the price.

    We sandblasted the frame and the bottom of the cab of a 1951 Ford F1 I am reworking. It is a great-shape truck. Right after we blasted it, we wiped it down with a clean rag, and shot the rust converter. It looked like egg nog, but it sprayed just fine. Contrary to the directions, we sprayed it at about 40 degrees F. After it went on it turned purple! After a day or two I looked in at it, and it had turned a flat black, and was just perfect. Good stuff. I have to learn to follow directions!

    Rust Converter is easy to apply and goes a long way. I used a sponge brush that eventually disintegrated, so would recommend a good paint brush if you are doing a large job. The container can be closed for storage, so what you don't use can be saved. The rust surface turns dark and two coats later it is ready for your next step. Goes on easy and dries quickly. Easy to follow directions.

    I wire brushed the rusted areas, cleaned as directed, and sprayed. It took 4 days to dry. Some areas turned black as noted while others remained the same. I finally dried it with a heat gun. I'll try again on other parts.

    All the rust areas I've been working on, I clean off surface with a wire brush wheel and then coat over it with the rust converter. Seems to work great, just like advertised. It forms a good protective barrier to keep rust from coming back again and makes a good paintable surface.
