  • Ensure that all areas not to be cleaned are suitably protected.
  • The product should not be diluted and must not be mixed before application.
  • The surface may be washed and cleaned before application; however, the surface should be dry before application of EcoSafe Strip Rust Converter.
  • For extremely rusty surfaces, it is necessary to wire brush the surface before treatment.

Dwell Time

The time required to remove the rust depends on the rust type and penetration depth.

  • Most rust will be cleaned within 10 to 15 minutes.
  • For extremely rusty surfaces, it is also effective to place a rag on the surface and saturate with the rust converter. Check the surface at 30-minute intervals to ensure rust has been converted.
