HMG Ferrozinc Rust Converter
FERROZINC is a high performance rust converter that is water thinnable with a dramatic colour change from white to black to show that the rust has been effectively neutralised. It can be easily applied being a single pack material with excellent long term conversion properties. When blast cleaning is not cost effective or practical, and though Ferrozinc is not an equivalent alternative to shot blasting, it does offer a far superior performance than conventional coatings applied to slightly rusted surfaces. FERROZINC is used after simple wire brushing to remove surface rust. FERROZINC should then be over-coated with a suitable primer & topcoat system for prolonged corrosion resistance. Salt spray and extended durability testing has proven FERROZINC to out-perform competitive rust conversion materials.
FERROZINC works as a Rust Converter on ferrous metals.
Typical usages are on vehicle chassis, motorcycle frames along with garden furniture, railings, or basically any area affected by rust.
Blast cleaning can be destructive on delicate substrates, resultant from the forces and abrasive nature of the process. The application of Ferrozinc is a great "half-way house" between blast cleaning and mere manual rust removal.
Application; Use a short pile stipple brush, applying a light coat.
Coverage: 20 square metres per litre @ 20 microns dft
Flashpoint: X °C
Storage: Store between 5°C - 25°C. When not in use, cans must be kept sealed
Shelf Life: 12 months from delivery date in original sealed containers
Maximum VOC Content: 0.03 Kg/l
Cleaning: Surfaces should be wire brushed to remove loose rust. Soluble salts should be removed by washing with water, as they may slow down the conversion process. FERROZINC should not be used over oil/grease contamination, or existing paint as this will render the product ineffective.
Surface Preparation: Please refer to Knowledge Base for details on Surface Preparation.
Health & Safety: Refer to SDS and tin label prior to use.
Scrub well into rusted areas only. Avoid coating non-rusted areas wherever possible.
