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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest Rust Converter Ever This Rust converter is easy to apply, with a small paint brush, or 2 dollar spray bottle from Home Depot. It works fast and creates a hard black coating over the rust spot. You can then paint directly over the hard black spot with paint if you like, but you don't have to paint it at all. I have applied this product on my truck and my motorhome 6 months ago. I painted the spots on the outside of the truck, but left the under carriage just as it hardened. There are no rust spots around where I applied the product and not bubbling on the paint. Home Depot has allowed me to purchase more of this product and have it delivered at my nearest store. That saves me the shipping costs and makes this product the most affordable rust converter around. August 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product really works followed instructions, it really works…easy to apply like a chemical and the description on the videos on their website are excellent. I used a white primer/sealer water based, then a water based white top coat but it needs at least another coat of topcoat. Maybe if an oil based topcoat is used it might be better. A quart goes a long way. I'll will be getting more of this for another project January 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works as advertised This product has a higher viscosity than its competitors, I used it on a rusty boat trailer and seemed to get a thicker coating after the corroseal had dried. I am assuming thicker is a plus, since oxygen must diffuse more slowly through a thicker coating to oxidize the underlying metal and scratches must penetrate more deeply to reach bare metal. I have tried several of these products and they all seem to work the same way, you remove loose rust and scale but leave some rust behind to form a black 'converted coating'. Then you top coat this black converted rust with oil based enamel paint. All current 'rust converters' seem to contain tannic acid and a latex polymer as a binder, they all smell the same; I have used 3 brands. One tip: You might try sanding and wire brushing then hose the object off with water and wait a week, preferably keeping the object outside. In some cases you will have removed too much rust and there will be patches of bright metal. A thin new layer of thin 'flash rust' should form (within a week) on your bright metal spots; when you rust convert this new 'thin' rust layer it will now turn black, the entire surface is now covered with the 'converted rust' coating. I used the corroseal successfully over some old trailer paint, before doing this try test a patch on old paint and see if it peels it up before applying corroseal to any adjacent old paint, some of these converters can strip old coatings and you don't want to top coat over loosened old paint. Eventually, the rust does break back through these coatings. On some small hand tools I did not use a painted top coat. I used steel wool to abrade the converted surface and re-'rust converted'. After 3 treatments (over ~3 years) the rust stopped re-appearing on my tools, I now spray WD-40 on them and buff them to a nice shiny black. Such multiple treatments are not really practical on a boat trailer (too much work) but rust conversion does slow the rusting process down a lot. July 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product...took forever to get shipped I used Corroseal on a truck bed that was bare metal and had been sitting inside for over a year. It worked great and the fact that it coats, converts and then becomes a primer makes it a very easy process. I sprayed it on with paint sprayer and it quickly converted rust to black primer. I would definitely use again. July 8, 2014
