Is there any special way to apply this? Or can I apply it with my Greaco pro magnum LTS 17 piston sprayer. Mind you that my sprayer is a $ 700.00 rig. But I have 2000 sq.ft. to cover. And if its just about cleaning then please do inform me.
Asked by: Skydiver
I brushed it on, but I would think spraying would be ok. Just don't over apply.

Can I use on a vehicle?

Rust mainly along rocker panels (lower edges of van)? Surface prep required?
Asked by: JayCee
Sure thing. Just remove loose rust, get down to solid surface. Just no flaky rust.

will this work on aluminum shed

Asked by: car
Well...actual aluminum doesn't rust. If rusted, it is probably steel. And it would be fine for steel.

After treating the rust what happens if it rains for the next 2 days

Asked by: Nybrn
After using Rust-Oleum Krud Kutter Rustex-Rust Converter, it is important to let it sit overnight before applying primer or paint. Exposure to excessive dew and humidity may prolong the drying time and cause powdery buildup.

I applied this about a month ago on a singlewide roof, then painted with Henry Tropicool. So far so good. I followed the instructions closely, and indeed the rust was converted to a hard, paintable surface. Much better price than competing products. I will use it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised After thoroughly sanding/wire brush the crusty rust, the fine rust was converted to a smooth dark finish suitable for priming and painting. Used during the repair of a car frame -this should insure that the repairs last a long time. The product is great, however, I had to order this online. This SHOULD be a product that is available in the paint department AT HOME DEPOT.
