If there’s Something Oxidized in Your Neighborhood, Who You Gonna Call? One Step Rust Converter!

So it is no surprise why Interstate’s most popular rust converter product on the market, is appropriately named ‘ 1Step Rust Killer ’.  1Step has eased the worries of many who regularly encounter rust buildup and corrosion. Known for selling mostly rust converter, Interstate Products Inc.’s rust converter has never failed to convert the most damaging rust surfaces even on some of the largest equipment imaginable – such as buildings, machinery and vast water tanks!

Interstate rust converter can be bought in containers of 1, 5, or 55 gallons, depending on the task that is to be performed. Not only are they safe, but they are also less expensive than other rust-removal alternatives such as sandblasting or heavy wire brushing – which can be a lot more work and aggressive on hazardous and may even erode the quality and texture of your equipment.

How Do I Use The Rust Killer?

If you have an old piece of equipment in your possession and don’t require a bare metal finish, then using Interstate’s rust converter is your teammate. This is mainly because 1 Step Rust Killer is most suitable for painting external objects such as structures, trucks, storage tanks or automotive body parts or frames – both of which require priming and rust removing operation.

Having a primer in its ingredients allows this rust converter to firstly neutralize the existing rust, and then with its priming feature, smooths out the rusted metal as well as painted surfaces. What makes this product one of the most raved products belonging to Interstate is the fact that it can be used in more than one way. 1 Step Rust Killer can be either be top-coated, sanded, body puttied, or, even left as is – all depends on the finish you are aiming for.

Furthermore, 1 Step Rust Killer also aims to provide elimination of heavy wire brushing whilst also converting the present rust into a non-ferrous surface so that it may not rust again in the near future. Rust killers are known to be quite harsh as it is never an easy job to get rid of rust from its core. For this reason, Interstate Products Inc. has specially designed its rust killer to kill rust without risking the material’s surface – it is safer than latex paint which goes to show why it is a customer favorite!

Don’t be alarmed, 1 Step Rust Killer has been around for some time now – 20 years to be exact – and even now, it stands out as one of Interstate’s most popular and used products out of their extensive line of products. Plus it is a WATER BASE! All that is required for it to do its job, is to prep the surface, apply the rust converter, then, patiently wait for 30 minutes for it to dry. With every gallon, you can be sure to cover 250 to 500 sq. ft. of surface – and if you happen to need more, you can always purchase their 5-gallon or 30-gallon containers to cover larger areas and items.

1 Step Rust Killer is also proud to be toxic-free and contains no traces of VOC (volatile organic compounds) or HAP (hazardous air pollutant); this means it is safe to use up to 4 times to ensure rust protection of enamel paint or acrylics without needing a topcoat. In addition to this, 1 Step Rust Killer can be easily applied with a brush, roller or sprayer and can be simply cleaned with just soap and water.

Industrial uses such as dealing with rust from structures, equipment, machinery, vehicles, marine or military applications, and railings have all been successfully achieved with the aid of 1 Step Rust Killer's application. However, even though its uses seem endless, we would like to remind you that this product is not to be applied to hot materials and surfaces such as hot engines, tailpipes, and exhaust pipes. With that being said, it is also not to be used on internal surfaces such as the insides of liquid containers such as water and fuel tanks.
