Rust Converter FAQ's
- How do I apply One Step Rust Converter? You may brush, roll, sponge, or use an airless sprayer to apply One Step on The rusted area.
- Can i use a sprayer? Yes, an airless sprayer is preferred for best results if you want to use a sprayer. Otherwise you can brush, sponge, or roll on.
- Can i put One-Step on hot engine parts or inside a tank? No. Do not apply One-Step Rust Converter to hot engine parts or any moving parts like an adjustable wrench. Also, never put One-Step inside of a tank with liquid without contacting our office first to go over your application.
- Can One-Step freeze? If one-step freezes and it is not a deep freeze then it can be thawed out.
- Do i need to use a top coat? No you do not. One Step Rust Converter is a one-step rust neutralizing primer. A user does not need to use a top coat after applying One-Step the Rust Killer for most applications. One-Step Rust Converter provides rust protection by itself without a top coat. You may choose to topcoat or not depending on the environment. One Step can also be sanded and/or puttied if desired. If considering a top coat for added rust protection, please view our top coat recommendation sheet.
- Do i need to sandblast or wire brush? You should remove what is loose and flaking and then you can leave the tightly adhered rust where it is. Then apply the One-Step the Rust Killer over the rust for long lasting results.
- Is One-Step safe to use? One-Step is water based and safer to use than most latex paints. For further information, please view the SDS sheet.
- How does it work? When One-step makes contact with rust it causes a chemical reaction that converts the rust into an inert polymer coating. In laymen terms it is a primer.
- How long will it last? It should not rust again at all. When used properly, any rust that may form would be new rust. One-step neutralizes and kills existing rust completely.
- What happens if i put it on non-rusted areas? It dries clear and has no negative effect.
- What color will it dry to? The final color depends on what stage of rust it is and the environment it is in. Generally it dries to a shade of black, but there are times where it just dries clear and is still killing the rust. When rust is very light, it may dry to a more brownish color because One-step turns black when neutralizing rust. This also applies for when you apply the product to a galvanized area.
- What is the surface preparation? Remove any loose flaking rust and leave the tightly adhered rust where it is. Clean with a suitable degreaser and then let it dry. You may then apply the One-Step Rust Converter and paint over the rust to kill, neutralize, and convert it.
