For Rusty Surfaces
CorrVerter® brings environmentally friendly, water-base primers
to a new level of convenience and cost savings. The new primer is
especially formulated for application over rusty or poorly prepared
steel surfaces to stop corrosion while offering an excellent primer
for top coating. The product eliminates labor intensive operations
for metal prep in maintenance, industrial and marine environments.
the two-in-one combination; rust converter and paint primer actually
penetrates rust. It goes down to the bare metal and converts rust
to into a passive layer. As the rust is converted, VpCI® CorrVerter®
forms a high solid, water-borne latex coating. This tough coating
provides low water vapor permeability to protect against re-rusting.
Unlike traditional converter/primers, Cortec's VpCI® CorrVerter®
has a very low VOC. It is non-flammable, non-combustible, and non-toxic
which allows its application in a variety of environments with greater
ease and safety. Because VpCI® CorrVerter® does not contain
phosphoric or tannic acid normally found in traditional converter/primers,
it allows the user to choose from the greatest variety of top coatings
including oil, solvent, water-based, latex, acrylic, urethanes and
can be used in situations where proper cleaning or sandblasting
is difficult. When possible, the user simply removes any loose rust
with a wire brush and then cleans the surface with a high pressure
water spray. This simple surface preparation method is especially
advantageous for salt-water marine applications where proper surface
preparation is difficult or not possible. In very hard-to-reach
areas, simply wash off excess salt from the steel surfaces with
a high pressure water spray.
the metal surface can be dry or damp. VpCI® CorrVerter®
is then easily applied by brush, roll or spray. After air drying
for 8 to 12 hours, a top coat can be applied.
