  2. Avoid confusing your customers. Instead of stocking all the other products use RUST DESTROYER®. The one product for all your metal needs, as a universal paint primer, and "rust converting paint primer."

  4. RUST DESTROYER® is so unique it is patented.
  5. Non-Toxic, U.S.D.A. and F.D.A. approved.

  7. You don't have to pour RUST DESTROYER® into a separate non metal container, as most others say.
  8. RUST DESTROYER® can be applied by brush, roller, conventional spray or airless spray. When spraying, if you use a number 17 tip, there is no need to thin the product.
  9. RUST DESTROYER®will work on:

    • rusty steel.
    • zinc galvanized metal.

    What you are about to read are not sales pitches, but what actually is written in the literature!

    Metal primers

    1. all products- must lightly sand glossy surfaces.
    2. galvanized primer:
      • Not for use on iron or steel surfaces.
      • Do not apply over existing coatings. Remove all previous coatings by scraping and/or use of paint removers.

    Derusto galv a grip

    1. remove all old paint.
    2. on heavily rusted surfaces, scrape, wire brush, spot prime allow 24 hours to dry, then recoat.
    3. not recommended for use as a primer for lacquer, or epoxy based materials .

      Rust converters / Rust-oleum

      Rust converter # 3575:

      • use on rusted steel surfaces where only minimum surface preparation (scraping and wire brushing) is practical.
      • can be top coated with many types of finishes, however, for best performance with high performance coatings, the surface preparation and primer recommendation for those coatings should be followed.
      • remove all dirt, oil, salt and chemical contaminants by washing the surface with commercial detergent or other suitable cleaning method. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water to remove all contaminants.
      • pour desired amount into a non metal container.
      • do not return unused portion to container. Doing so will contaminate the remaining material, and reduce or eliminate its ability to function.

      Duro extend

      1. sand or brush thoroughly.
      2. allow to dry overnight protected from moisture . .
      3. do not use water base or latex paint.
      4. apply a few thin coats rather than a thick coat.
      5. extend sprayed on coated metal will not turn black. Confine spray to -rusted, uncoated metal.

      Neutra rust

      • test small area to insure compatibility.
      • for best results, sand or wire brush rusted surface before application.
      • do not remove all traces of rust. Rust is necessary for proper chemical reaction .
      • wash off salt residue and chemicals.
      • 2 or 3 thin coats protect better than 1 heavy coat.
      • allow 2 hours between coats.
      • if a light color topcoat is desired, a light or medium colored primer is recommended to insure adequate protection.
      From the information above it is clear that RUST DESTROYER® is the only product without restrictions.
