Rust elimination and long-term protection:
Aquasteel is a unique patented white organic copolymer latex with a specific gravity of 1.2
It dries on rusted surfaces and chemically converts these to a black nontacky layer in 30 minutes under normal conditions, forming an independent complex iron/iron oxide/organic chemical compound which gives complete protection for the treated surface.The black chemical compound layer is completely neutral and can be used as a primer, without further treatment, for standard or synthetic resin lacquers, oil-based paints, two-component lacquers or bitumastic and oil tar-based finishers including micaceous ironoxide paints.
**Overcoat paint must be tested for compatibility with Aquasteel before fullpainting.
