The prep products clean and treat rust whilst preparing the surface for priming. The primer products are specially formulated for adhesion and to deliver a resilient rust inhibiting barrier based on the metal type. Our finishing products add further rust protection and a smooth, long lasting colour finish in one easy step. Thousands of colour options are available, you can start exploring our colour charts here.
What is the process?
Prepare | Prime | Finish
Depending on what surface you have, you’ll need to ensure it’s properly prepared for your new paint. Our prep products allow you to effectively clean and treat rust and prepare the surface for priming without having to pay a hefty bill. We can walk you through the process. For fresh, unpainted surfaces, you’ll need to wash it to remove all oil, grease, dirt, and any other contaminants. For surfaces with surface rust or oxidation, you’ll need to remove this with a brush or other surface-specific tool, and most likely apply Rust Converter to rusted areas.
Rustblock Cold Gal
Zinc-rich, cold galvanizing primer for long-term, extra heavy-duty corrosion protection. This product encapsulates the metal in a zinc film, which is ideal for use on clean, rust-free steel in very corrosive environments such as coastal regions.
Rustblock Rust Converter
Rustblock Rust Converter converts rust to stop corrosion and provides a suitable surface for subsequent priming and painting. Rustblock Rust Converter interacts with metal iron oxides, converting them into an adherent black layer that is more resistant to moisture and provide a surface for various top coatings such as latex paints and enamels. Using a Rustblock Rust Converter, you are adding a double layer of protection against future rusting before you even topcoat.
