Product Overview

Corroseal Rust Converter is an elite, industrial strength product for all marine, household, automotive, and industrial rust problems. Rust occurs naturally when the iron in steel oxidizes and returns to its original state, iron oxide. Through an innovative chemical conversion process, Corroseal Rust Converter converts rust (iron oxide) into a stable substance, magnetite. It also primes the surface with a high quality latex metal primer at the same time. Corroseal truly provides one step corrosion control. Corroseal features, water based rust converter with high quality latex metal primer, non-flammable, non-corrosive, easy to apply (brush, roll, or spray), easy to cleanup with soap and water. Eco-friendly alternative to sandblasting Corroseal is the best way to deal with rust because it is less expensive, less time consuming and is much more environmentally friendly than sandblasting. Corroseal eliminates the need to sandblast rust by chemically converting rust from iron oxide to magnetite, a black and inert substance. Don't remove rust, convert rust.

Answer: 
I had some areas of my metal lawn furniture that I lightly sanded and smoothed the original paint and did other areas down to the metal to get rid of most rust. This product covered both type of areas perfectly.

Answer: 
Not recommended over old paint. But there is a way. Paint the pickets with Corroseal. Let dry 24 hrs. Apply a second coat. Let dry 24 hrs. Now go back with acetone and wipe the entire picket. It does not seem to hurt the parts rust repaired, but it does wipe off any gummy residue over the previously painted portion. I own an iron working shop and have used this technique many times. Hope this helps.

Google Blackstar Rust Converter if you are going to paint over the treated area. Blackstar allows any piant color you want! And it looks great too.

Somewhere on the Corroseal (water based rust converter) website it says that you can use an oil based primer over the Corroseal. So this should work? Thanks

Answer: 
I used Rustoleum primer over Corroseal on th external of my tractor engine cover with no issues. As the Corroseal is water based, just make sure you get a complete cure of the Corroseal, after that, you're free to use an oil based top coat or primer. Another option is to use the corroseal as your primer. I have a bush hog that was bare metal that i used the Corroseal as a protector then hit it lightly Read More

Initially it will. But sometimes galvinized will prevent deep penetration. Try Black star rust converter on that. Probably need 2 applications.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 119 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great stuff good product for using on my under carrage of a car trailer that had seen many years of use. a bit on the spendy side but works well. Goes much further than I would have imagined. I could have gotten by with about a quart rather than a gallon for the supports under the trailer floor. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rust Converter Worked great. I used a sprayer for auto frame.Any rust turns black and dries clear. You can paint over it and never worry. Plus best price I have found. Online order and delivered quick. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I've used other products but this is the best, thanks This is what I was looking for to treat a rusty barn roof before painting I haven't applied the paint yet but from the looks of the metal I'm sure it will make a good service that will make a good job.I will be purchasing more for my auto restoration service. Thank you very much. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WORKS AS ADVERTISED THE PRODUCT IS ONE OF THE EASIEST TO APPLY. IT QUICKLY CONVERTS RUST TO A PAINTABLE SURFACE WITHOUT HAVING TO SAND THE SURFACE DOWN TO BARE METAL. IT CAN BE APPLIED WITH A SPRAYER. BRUSH, OR ROLLER. IT'S LOW VISCOSITY ALSO ALLOWS IT TO SEEP INTO CRACKS, WELDS, AND SEAMS THAT ARE INACCESSIBLE WITHOUT TAKING APART. October 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff really works I was skeptical but not anymore. Used on a storm shelter top door completely rusted and when finished it was black as coal and then finished with oil base paint…TRUST me it works!!! September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skeptical no more... We needed something to stop the rust and clean up the steel beams in the storage room of our home. Watched a few videos, applied as directed, and watched the rust convert in front of our eyes! It took a few days to a week to arrive, but worth the wait. It even converted some rusted areas of galvanized, which I didn't think the product would convert. Follow the directions, clean your surface well, apply generously, and you should be pleased as we are with the results. Applies like a watered down elmers glue. Note: a gallon goes a LONG way! (4 steel I-beams, 15' feet long X 10" inches high, heavily coated, and only used 1/4 of the product.) A bristled brush worked best (in our application) over a foam brush. (Coat evenly) Clean up was easy, but be prepared to use disposable brush and paint pan. (Anything that starts to dry or setup won't clean) Lower fumes than expected, but used a respirator anyway. DEFINITELY wear gloves! (Anything the product drips on WILL stain black! So cover your work area and skin) Good luck, we're happy! September 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great on metal utility shed The shed roof was a rusted mess. I did not want to get into belt sanding or sandblasting. This stuff went on with a 1" brush and a 6" roller. Dried to a brownish black. I primed white with Kilz (moisture prevention) and painted with exterior white. My mistake was buying the gallon. I only used half to cover the 9 x 12 shed roof TWO times. So, a gallon might be good for 400sf. It's ok, I'm going to try it on the lawn mower, snow blower, gas grill, furniture, etc. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amazingly it works as advertised I used this with a spray bottle and gloves. It stores well so get the gallon as you will find many uses on rusted everything. August 22, 2016
