Fertan« Rust converter is brown aromatic liquid (sg 1.18) that is applied to
metal to remove rust,
All steel and iron including:
TYPICAL PROPERTIES OF UNCURED MATERIAL
TYPICAL ENVIRONMENTAL RESISTANCE
Fertan« Rust Converter is designed to be the best converter and remover of rust to provide a surface suitable for overcoating. Depending on the environment Fertan« will provide resistance to further rust for up to 6 months without painting (environment dependent).APPLICATION AND USE
Fat, oil, silicon and dirt should be removed.
Loose rust, mill scale and oil paint may be removed by any appropriate method (manual or power wirebrushing, chipping, ehpwj, peening) followed by rinsing with water to remove residues.
Fat etc. may be removed by detergent or degreaser and the surface should be rinsed.
Rust Conversion Time and Surface change:
One coat of Fertan« Rust converter is recommended. The metal surface should
be damp prior to application.
Directions for Use
Hints and Precautions for Use
Loose rust and scale should be removed. Firmly bonded rust is welcome.
Fat, oil, silicon and dirt should be removed by detergent or degreaser and the surface should be rinsed.
The metal surface should be damp before application and, on hot dry days, should be dampened again after an hour
Fertan« Rust Converter should be applied when the air and surface temperature is above 1║C and below 30║C. The reaction will continue for up to 48 hours at lower temperatures. In high temperatures and low humidity ensure the surface stays damp.
Fertan« may be applied in fog, mist or light rain.
Equipment and methods
Fertan« may be applied by brush, sponge, roller or spray. Spray application is recommended for large areas. Airless spray equipment is fast and provides more effective conversion due to improved surface penetration. Conventional air-spray equipment may be used.
Fertan« may be thinned with 5%-10% water to alter spray characteristics.
Wash brushes and equipment with water. Rinse adjacent painted surfaces
with water. Some light coloured paints may take a stain from Fertan so it is
easiest to remove it promptly.
Fertan will stain clothing. Prompt washing in large quantities of cold water and mild detergent may remove the marking.
Fertan« spilled into the environment should be washed down with water.
Resistance to Moisture Solvents & Chemicals
Once Fertan« has converted the rust the converted rust is tannated iron that will not rust. If the surface is to be in contact with anything other than the normal atmosphere of air and moisture we recommend that the surface should be overcoated with appropriate paint systems.
Fertan« has always worked well with all surfacing products. It is responsible to recommend that a trial area should be tested.
