Large structural painting jobs in various heavy engineering industries and projects especially in coastal areas involve the cumbersome rust removal by sand/shot blasting, wire brushing or mechanical grinding etc., prior to painting.
Rust Converter -177 ( Liquid Form ) is a single pack ready to use solution which on application converts the Rust and acts as a coating preventing further corrosion and also acts as an ideal base for painting. Rust Converter- 177 prevents the steel from further rusting for a reasonable period of time without any paint coat on it. ( around 2 -3 months stored in room )
Rust Converter - 177 reacts with all the layers and forms a stable non-reactive complex organo-metallic surface having Bluish-black Color. It stops the migration of ions, preventing the electro-chemical corrosion process and hence prolonging the life of paint system which result in considerable savings.
Areas of Application : Structural steel tankers (road & sea), overhead water tanks, heavy drilling rigs, chemical process equipment and storage tanks, pipe and tube stock, bridges, conveyors, automobile dickeys, cranes, concrete reinforcements, pipelines etc. and practically in all kinds of industries where problem of rusting of iron exists.
