HMG Paints has announced the relaunch of Ferrozinc, a water-based rust converter. It is the go-to solution for rust conversion in areas where shot blasting, or complete rust removal is impractical or impossible – it is available in 250ml, 1 Litre or 5 Litres.
It explained that, rust removal has been a laborious and time-consuming process, involving hours of wire brushing or the use of strong acidic chemicals that pose significant safety hazards.
However, with HMG’s Ferrozinc rust converter this arduous task becomes a thing of the past. This is for anyone working in the decorative or industrial markets, and even classic car enthusiasts.
Users only need to remove loose debris and poorly adhered surface rust, followed by a degreasing step to eliminate any contamination that may interfere with the chemical reaction. Afterward, a thin coat of Ferrozinc is applied to the rusted area, and within 30 minutes, the surface transforms into a black/navy colour, indicating the successful rust conversion. Any excess product can be easily wiped off, and after just +3 hours, the treated surface is ready to be overcoated with the user’s preferred coating system.
Ferrozinc’s water-based formulation not only provides rust conversion properties but also ensures a low odour, making it a pleasant and user-friendly option compared to solvent-based alternatives.
