Rust - Trapper©

Rust Converting Latex Primer

For Steel and Iron

Converts surface rust on metal to a durable black matte finish that stops the rusting process cold and protects the metal surface.  Can be painted or coated over with any chemical that would otherwise be appropriate for metal surfaces.

Works like magic.  Just remove grease, dirt, existing paint and loose scale.  Apply Rust-Trapper© and in 5 to 15 minutes, surface rust is converted into a coating.  No need to remove existing rust.


Product Specification Sheet
Rust Trapper/primer. Rust converting Latex Primer

Description: A single component, specially formulated emulsion and additive combination that transforms rust into a black corrosion protective paint film. It actually converts the rust on the surface to an integral part of the newly created, rust inhibiting finish. You can watch the change take place in about 20 minutes.

Advantages: Stops rust dead in its tracks. Can be used as primer on steel or iron products. Minimal preparation needed, not necessary to take surface down to bare metal as product utilizes rust present to form compound with metal. Can be used on non-rusted bare metal to prevent rust from forming. Metal needs no etching or preparatory coating. Easy to apply relatively inexpensive.

Disadvantages: Can be used as primer on aluminum but will not penetrate coating.     When applying with brush or roller must be careful not to contaminate more product than you are going to immediately use.  Although not designed to be a top coating, it can be used as final coating.  However a good top coating (of enamel, acrylic, epoxy, urethane, etc.)  will last many years longer.  Should not be allowed to freeze.

Usage: Usage: Tanks, Fences, Automobiles, Pipes and Joints, Ships, Buildings, Tools, Oil Well Rigs, and Machinery.

Preparation: A: The rusted surface must be dry and free from residue, oil, grease, or wax. Remove loose scale. It is not necessary to sand remaining rust.

Application: Product can be applied by brush, roller or sprayed. Shake contents. IMPORTANT: To avoid contamination, do not work out of this container. Pour the amount  needed into a separate plastic, glass, or paper container. Do NOT return the unused material to the original container. Coverage 350’ to 400’ per gal.

Apply a liberal first coat to the rusted area. Do not thin. Allow to dry about 20 minutes. Apply 2nd coat. Do not apply to a hot surface or at less than 50 degrees F. If top coating is desired, allow to dry 24 hours and paint with epoxy, urethane, acrylic, alkyd enamel, or other finish recommended for metal surfaces.

Caution: Keep away from children. Do not take internally. If taken, contact physician. When spraying a protective mask should be worn to avoid inhaling. In the event of eye contact, flush eyes with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.
