Thermo-Shield® Rust Converter stops existing rust, prevents future corrosion and provides
bleed-through protection with a durable protective barrier. No need for sandblasting,
scraping or grinding. Thermo-Shield® Rust Converter is water-based, high quality, unique
rust treatment coating.
It is used as a Primer / Base Coat on all rusty metal tanks & pipelines, water tanks, silos,
storage bins, metal roofs, beams etc., surfaces, prior to the application of Thermo-Shield®
Roof Coat or Tank Shield.
Surface must be cleaned of grease, oil, dirt, salt, loose rust or water soluble chemicals with
a high strength cleaner and then rinsed thoroughly with water. Remove blistered and loose
paint, loose rust scale and heavy rust buildup. Do not remove all rust. Best results are achieved
when all rusted areas are exposed and a thin layer of rust remains on the surface.
Very good to steel and iron surfaces, becomes part of the piece that is painted.
Work into rusted surface with a bristle brush. Two coats (2) cross-brushed is required for
adequate protection. On large areas apply with roller or airless spray equipment. Dries to
durable black matte finish when applied to rusted surfaces and remains clear when applied
over non-rusted metal or other coatings.
