Rust Remover - Eastwood Fast Etch

Product Overview:

Description

This specially formulated rust remover is a powerful, rust-fighting liquid created to meet the needs of auto restorers.

  • Ideal Prep for Painting and Powder Coating
  • Leaves Zinc Phosphate Coating
  • Promotes Adhesion and Prevents Rust

It reaches even inaccessible areas, quickly dissolving iron oxide completely and leaving a zinc phosphate coating. Fast Etch can be sprayed, brushed, or used as a parts dip. It is non-toxic, non-flammable and reusable. This is not a primer. Treated surfaces should be wiped with PRE Painting Prep (10041 Z) or thinner before priming and painting. Only the quart size comes with a sprayer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood Fast Etch This stuff really works well. I used it to prep a gas tank before I sealed it and it worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good job Works great, make sure you are in well ventilated area. Also watch your floor. It’s waiting for paint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was skeptical Works just like in the video. I was skeptical but this is awesome if your metal is bare and has to sit for awhile

Questions & Answers

Can any brand of epoxy primer be applied over the fast etch, providing it is neutralized? I have notice on the tech sheet for a Sikkens epoxy that it cannot be applied over a chemical cleaner. Would fast etch be considered a chemical cleaner?

Asked by: 67scoty
This would not be considered a cleaner. We can not guarantee compatibility between our products and brands we do not sell. We would have to advise you to test a small area first or s scrap piece of metal> The surface MUST be neutralized with our PRE or Acetone before applying anything after the use of the Fast Etch.

Will this product work good on a Big Truck Frame to DeRust it?

Asked by: stone
If there is no existing finish down then yes this can be used. You have to remove the temporary protective coating that it leaves behind after before applying anything further though. This can be done by wiping with our PRE or Acetone.

After bead blasting some steel items I either dipped or brushed FE on the parts but the next day there was some bubbly blistering and it had a tacky feel. Was this because I failed to wipe the items or is my FE getting old?

Asked by: D Hess
That would be dried up fast etch residue that was not wiped off.

I'm using this on bare steel after stripping with the Eastwood wheel like KT did in the video. After sitting for a couple weeks, will I need to sand the entire bare steel panel or just wipe with Pre and prime?

Asked by: Kenny
What i had to do is re- Apply fast etch (re-activate chemicals) then use Acetone wiping panel the same as you would W&G remover.

Optiflow epoxy over metal prepped with Fast Etch: Stripped to metal, sanded, Fast Etch then wiped off to light film which dried. Priming a couple weeks later. Do I need to reactivate or can I Pre then roll Opti?

Asked by: Marc
You will need to neutralize by applying PRE or Acetone to the surface and wiping clean before proceeding with the instructions to prep the surface for the Epoxy primer.

I coated the floor pans with Fast Etch. Do I need to top coat this with a rust incapacitator? The interior carpet and door panels will be covering the surface.

Asked by: LilMike
Fast Etch is designed to dissolve rust then leave behind a temporary protective coating- not a permeant one. The surface should be properly sealed off. To do this you need to first neutralize the protective coating that Fast Etch leaves behind by wiping it down with our PRE or Acetone, then it can be sealed with something such as one of our Encapsulators.

Have you heard of customers using this to protect metal after media blasting but before ceramic coating like Cerakote? This can be neutralized with acetone after application correct?

Asked by: 3Bobs
A better option for this application would be our After Blast found here: https://www.eastwood.com/ew-after-blast.html

Can I use fiberglass/filler over the zinc coating?

Asked by: Mike
The protective coating this leaves behind after use needs to be neutralized first with PRE or Acetone and then yes- you can.
