JENOLITE Rust Converter is a fast acting, water based formulation that chemically converts rust in to a stable surface and prevents further rusting by creating a barrier to water vapour, oxygen and carbon dioxide. It also provides superior resistance to bacterial growth.  Once treated, the surface can be painted directly over using most modern paints, without the need for a primer.
Easy to use, simply spray directly onto rust and watch as it gets to work, transforming rust into a ready to paint black / purple surface.
