Rust Eliminator 32 is used on rusted steel when only a minimum surface preparation is practical. Rust Eliminator 32 stops rust, coats surface, and acts as a primer for various covering paints on:
- Duct work, overhead cranes and booms
- Municipal and highway sign posts
- Conveyors, supports, guard rails, fences
- Power plants, heating and cooling plants
- Storage tanks, truck trailers
- Pipes, valves
Hernon Rust Eliminator 32 is a new revolutionary product for eliminating old rust and preventing new rust on steel parts. Rust is chemically transformed into an inert, non-corrosive coating.
- Easy to use
- Non-flammable, low toxicity
- One component
- Works on damp, rusty metals
- Replaces conventional primers for most industrial finish paints
Surface preparation on old steel
Loose of “flaky” rust must be removed. Only conversion of firmly bonded rust will result in durable protection. Oil, old paint, grease, mill scale, fingerprints and water soluble surfaces and chlorides must be removed to allow Rust Eliminator 32 to react with the rust. Loose rust, oil paint and mill scale should be removed preferably by power wire brushing, followed by rinsing with water to remove powder and soluble. Manual wire brushing, chipping, scraping and particularly roto peening can also be used. Oil, grease, form oil and fingerprints should be removed before loose rust. Ideal surfaces will show light rust as well as bare metal surfaces. Rust Conversion Time and Appearance Two coats of Rust Eliminator 32 are recommended.
On lightly rusted steel (that has been wire brushed), the first coat will start to develop a violet colour within 60 seconds. This will become satin to flat black in appearance. The second coat should dry to a satin black appearance. On heavily rusted steel (that has been wire brushed), the first coat should develop a purple-black colour within seconds. The second coat should dry to a black colour with gloss varying from flat to satin. The second coat should be applied within 15-30 minutes of the first coat.
