Aerosol Rust Converter & Primer 163011

Product Description

RUST-AID can be applied to any iron or steel surface to penetrate rust and turn it into a protective black coating. This protective coating will be resistant to moisture and prevents future rust growth. Just remove any loose rust, then apply it like a primer to rusted surfaces. Greatly reduces time spent wire brushing and sanding. A topcoat is required for maximum rust protection.
