DINITROL RC 800 Rust Converter Product Information
- Rust converter
- Forms stable iron complex
- Impermeable to oxygen
DINITROL RC 800 is a co-polymer latex combined with organic agents designed for application to corroded ferrous substrates. DINITROL RC 800 actively converts the rust present on the substrate into a stable organic iron complex. As the polymer dries it forms an impermeable barrier to oxygen and moisture effectively sealing out any further corrosion. DINITROL RC 800 has an extremely low order of toxicity and does not contain phosphoric acid or lead.
DINITROL RC 800 has been successfully used on the following applications, automotive shells and chassis, ships ballast tanks, steel bridges, brine tanks, harbour installations, lamp posts, oil rigs, railings, sewage treatment works, storage tanks, structural girders and railway vehicles.
Please note: DINITROL RC800 is a highly technological advanced product with a complicated chemical formulation. The product only works at temperatures above 10 degrees and must be allowed to fully dry. Guidelines stipulate at standard atmospheric conditions 15 degrees and humidity of 60% the average drying time is 24 hours. Sometimes multiple coats must be applied before the corrosion is fully converted into a deep black colour providing indication that the area has been treated. (When applying multiple coats you must make sure that the earlier coating is completely dry)
Method of use:
Wire brush the substrate to remove loose flaking paint and rust, remove any high surface peaks by abrading and then wash the substrate with detergent to remove oil and grease. The surface should then be cleaned using high-pressure water wash to remove the detergent and any corrosion salts. Do not remove all traces of rust, the presence of rust is necessary for the complete chemical reaction of DINITROL RC 800. It is recommended to carry out an initial test area at all times. This test should take place in the working conditions of application. The topcoat system should also be tested for compatibility. Stir the product thoroughly before use, then decant sufficient material for the operation into a suitable non metallic container. To avoid contamination do not pour any unused material back into the original bulk container.
Apply a minimum of two coats by brush, spray or roller allow to a wet film thickness of 60 − 90 um per coat (20 − 30 um DFT). Application by brush is preferred for the first coat to ensure full penetration when the substrate is heavily rusted. Use a short nap roller and apply the coating evenly, edges may need to be stripe coated by brush to ensure the substrate is completely coated. The coating may be applied by air assisted or airless spray techniques. Application temperature is recommended at 5 − 30°C.
