Original Chassis Black Aerosol Satin and Gloss

  1. Surface must be clean and dry before painting. Use Eastwood PRE Painting Prep (10041Z) to remove grease and oil. Can be used on bare metal, or over primer. For increased adhesion and durability, prime clean, bare metal with Extreme Chassis Black™ Primer. Prime firmly adhering rust with Eastwood Rust Encapsulator™, wait 15 minutes to 36 hours (scuff surface beyond 36 hours with 320 grit) topcoat with Chassis Black. Do not use over self-etching primers. Test for compatibility if not using over Extreme Chassis Black™ Primer or Eastwood Rust Encapsulator™. For best results, use when can is between 70 degrees and 90 degrees F (21 degrees and 32 degrees C), 50% or less humidity.
  2. SHAKE CAN VIGOROUSLY for at least one minute before and occasionally during use. Spray surface with steady, even strokes at a distance of 8 to 10 inches. Several light coats give a better finish then one heavy coat.
  3. If clogging develops, turn spray button ¼ turn or remove and clean spray button slot. DO NOT stick objects into can opening.
  4. Allow 15 to 20 minutes between coats. Recoating after 12 hours will preserve the same gloss level.
  5. Finished article should be allowed to dry overnight before use.
  6. After painting turn can upside down and spray for 2 seconds to clean spray button.
  7. Discard empty can in trash pickup. Do not incinerate or compact.

Rust Encapsulator Aerosol

  1. Ensure that the surface is free of all loose rust, scale, and paint - cleaning with a stiff wire brush should be sufficient.
  2. Remove all dust oil and grease, or chemical contamination using Eastwood's PRE (#10041Z aerosol or #10194ZP quart) . Allow to dry thoroughly.
  3. Shake can well and listen for rattle of mixing ball. Continue to shake for at least 2 minutes. Shake for 10 seconds at 1 to 2 minute intervals during application.
  4. When applying Eastwood Rust Encapsulator™ to a patch area, feather the edges of the surrounding paint with 220 grit wet/dry sandpaper. Be sure to feather into the surrounding paint by at least 1 1/4".
  5. Hold can 10 to 12 inches from the surface and apply a medium coat to ensure maximum adhesion, overlapping surrounding paint by at least 1 ¼"
  6. Single coats of Eastwood Rust Encapsulator™ will be dry to the touch in 20 minutes and thoroughly dry in 3-4 hours at 68 degrees F. If a second coat is desired for greater durability, allow 1 hour before applying the second coat. If applying heavy coats, allow extra drying time before applying.
    Important - to keep nozzle clean remove any build-up on the tip after use with lacquer thinner. The spray tip can be removed with a twisting motion, and then flushed with lacquer thinner to clean. Always replace tip immediately after cleaning to prevent valve gasket from over-swelling, which can make re-insertion of the tip difficult and can even damage the valve causing malfunction. Always use gentle twisting motion to insert tip. Take care not to spray in eyes or face.
  7. If applying a topcoat, allow at least 6-8 hours drying time. For maximum topcoat adhesion, sand the surface with 320 grit wet/dry sandpaper. Allow an extra hour drying time if wet sanding.
  8. For best results, top coating should be done within 36 hours of Eastwood Rust Encapsulator™ application. After 36 hours, be sure to scuff the surface with 320 grit wet/dry sandpaper before top coating.

Rust Encapsulator Quart

  1. Ensure that the surface is free of all loose rust, scale, and paint - cleaning with a stiff wire brush should be sufficient.
  2. Remove all dust oil and grease, or chemical contamination using Eastwood's PRE (#10041Z aerosol or #10194ZP quart) . Allow to dry thoroughly.

May be thinned up to 20% with lacquer thinner for spraying.
  5. If applying a topcoat, allow at least 6-8 hours drying time. For maximum topcoat adhesion, sand the surface with 320 grit wet/dry sandpaper. Allow extra drying time if wet sanding.
  6. Scuff sanding (320-400 grit)is required for topcoats applied after 36 hours.

Rust Converter Parts A and B

  1. Ensure that the surface is free of all loose rust, scale, and paint - cleaning with a stiff wire brush should be sufficient.
  2. Remove all dust oil and grease, or chemical contamination using Eastwood's PRE (#10041Z aerosol or #10194ZP quart) or acetone. Allow to dry thoroughly. May be pressure washed but remove any standing water or water droplets before coating.
  3. Do to the combination of aggressive chemicals involved, it's important to wear eye protection like our (43090) Safety Goggles and work in a well ventilated area. Wearing a respirator like our (34229) Professional Respirator is recommended.
  4. Mix 4 parts of (12256ZP) Eastwood Rust Converter with 1 part of (12258ZP) Eastwood Rust Converter Wetting Agent. You will have a 3 - 5 HOUR WORK TIME. ONLY MIX AS MUCH AS YOU CAN USE IN 3 - 5 HOURS.
  5. Brush, spray, or dip to coat surfaces to be treated. Apply one full flowing coat. For additional protection, or better coverage over rough surfaces, one additional coat may be applied after about 1 hour or when the surface has dried.
  6. Immediately clean brush, gun etc. with water.
  7. If desired for additional protection and better topcoat compatibility, wait overnight and apply Eastwood Rust Encapsulator. Otherwise scuff with 320-400 grit before top coating with primer of your choice.

Fast Etch

  1. Metal surfaces to be treated should be free of grease, oil, and wax. Remove loose rust, blistered paint, and scale.
  2. Temperature and extent of corrosion determines how fast Fast Etch works. Best working temperature is above 70degrees F, but not over 100 degrees F. Shake bottle before using.
  3. Apply Fast Etch with brush, rag, roller, spray, or simply dip the corroded metal directly into the solution. To use on heavy rust, on hot days, or on vertical surfaces, saturate a clean cloth with Fast Etch , place on the part, and cover with plastic to avoid evaporation.
  4. Keep the treated metal surface moist with Fast Etch . Do not allow to dry for at least 30 minutes until the surface has a uniform gray appearance. If air bubbles appear, smooth them out with a cloth or brush. Avoid wasteful run-off. If the metal surface is not free of rust, repeat the process outlined above. Wipe the still wet part with Eastwood's PRE (#10041Z aerosol or #10194ZP quart) or acetone to remove excess Fast Etch . Treated surfaces will be coated with zinc phosphate. Prime the surface before painting.
  5. Excess Fast Etch should be removed from painted or chrome plated surfaces with a mild detergent and water as soon as possible to prevent discoloration. Wipe Dry. Fast Etch is reusable. Do not store in metal containers. Avoid using Fast Etch longer than required to completely remove rust as this may potentially weaken the metal.

Eastwood Rust Dissolver

Pre-clean item to remove oil and dirt. Rinse item and immerse fully in Eastwood Rust Dissolver. Items that cannot be fully immersed due to size or position can be placed in the discharge stream of a commonly available small pump. Virtually any plastic pump will work. Commonly available perforated irrigation hose can be used to assure complete coverage. Construct a catch system to recycle the streaming Eastwood Rust Dissolver. Surface being treated must remain wet with Eastwood Rust Dissolver. Check progress periodically. Length of time to de-rust varies with the severity of rust. Light surface rust will require 5-30 minutes, moderate rust up to 4 hours, and deeply rusted parts may require overnight soaking. Once rust is removed, rinse item with water. The part is now ready for painting, powder coating, plating, or rust preventative coating. For short-time rust inhibition, simply dip the item back in the Eastwood Rust Dissolver and allow to dry.
