Rust Remover - Eastwood Fast Etch

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.

Questions & Answers

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.

Do I need to re sand the metal after using fast etch before priming?

Asked by: Moparman
It depends on the scenario. If the surface was not sanded and you are applying a primer that requires a mechanical abrasion then yes- sanding still has to be done. You want to ensure you neutralize the temporary protective coating this leaves behind by using our PRE before and after sanding.

After 30 minutes should the remaining wet fat etch solution be wiped off or allowed to dry? What if PRE isn't currently at hand?

Asked by: bluneon
That should be wiped off and not allowed to dry. If pre is not available then we recommend using acetone.

What will fast etch do to fiberglass body filler

Asked by: Juanjjcam
Fast Etch (19416) is a Phosphoric acid product designed to react to and remove iron oxide (rust) from metal and leave a Zinc Phosphate coating to protect the metal. Fast Etch should have minimal if no effect on fiberglass filler.If you get Fast Etch on your Fiberglass filler remove it as soon as possible by wiping..

I used the fast etch on my 1940 Olds hood. One side looks great ,the other has white streaks in the pitted area! Is this a problem?

Asked by: JohnC
I used a scotch brite pad with it and it was pretty effective. I went it then scrubbed then wet again. Had drip pans below and reused the dissolver.
