Corr-eX RC-3 Rust Inhibitor
- Photo: Both ends of steel bar coated in RC-3 but not the center. Exposed to salt water atmosphere environment for 3 weeks.
- RC-3 is an environmentally friendly water-based product that converts rust, Iron Oxide (Fe2 and FeO3), to an inert material. RC-3 does not contain barium or other any other hazardous compounds and is of course non-flammable.
- After the RC-3 converts the iron oxide to an inert material it seals the area and the corrosion preventive compounds in RC-3 prevents any further rusting. The acrylic polymer in RC-3 is sufficient to be a primer and can be tinted to closely match the existing paint making it in most cases a one stop product that the customer may or may not wish to apply a top coat of paint.
- RC-3 can be applied by spraying, brushed on, or dipped. Without the acrylic polymer RC-3 is a 98.5% an organic product.
Corr-eX RC-3 has the following unique combination of benefits:
- Environmentally Friendly and water-based, contains no barium or other hazardous compounds
- Treats and coats metals against harsh elements
- Converts iron oxide (rust) into an inert base metal ready for a top coat of paint for superior protection
- Easily used to protect large metal surfaces where spray application is possible
- Ready to use. No mixing required
- RC-3 is an environmentally friendly water-based product that converts rust, Iron Oxide (Fe2 and FeO3), to an inert material.
- RC-3 works on ferrous metals including Carbon Steel, Low Carbon Steel (also known as mild steel), Medium-carbon Steel, High-carbon Steel, Tool Steel, Stainless Steel, Cast Iron, and Wrought Iron. RC-3 can be painted over when cured. There is one caveat when using RC-3 and that is the base metal must be present.
- After the RC-3 converts the iron oxide to an inert material it seals the rusted or corroded area and the corrosion preventive compounds in RC-3 prevents any further rusting. RC-3 can be painted over after it is cured.
- Does not require protective clothing.
With minimal preparation, i.e., brush off loose or flaking rust and remove grease and dirt, RC-3 easily converts rust to a primed and paintable surface in 2-4 hours. RC-3 can be applied by spraying, brushed on, or dipped. RC-3 is finished working when the areas of rust turn black. Unlike competing products with high acid contents, RC-3 stops working when the Iron Oxide is inert, the metal remains unaffected. RC-3 won’t weaken the underlying metal. Don’t worry about over spray, won’t harm fiberglass, rubber or painted surfaces.
Apply RC-3 to steel, iron, or chrome to convert rust to a primed and paintable surface. Ready to use as is with no mixing required, RC-3 can be sprayed, rolled or brushed on. RC-3 cures in 2 to 4 hours. Use RC-3 when the surface temperature of the metal is between 4.4̊ C and 60̊. RC-3 should not be applied when metal is “hot” to the touch. If immediate application is require wet down surface prior to applying The steel surface is completely cured when area treated turns black and is dry to the touch. Once completely dry, area is ready for painting if desired.
Clean Up :
Use soapy water to wash hands and clean rollers, brushes and sprayers.
RC-3 comes ready to use, no mixing required, and is easy to clean up, use soapy water to wash hands and clean rollers, brushes and sprayers. Shelf life is 2 years.
