R10 Rust Converter
Years of research have gone into developing this tannic acid based product that has been combined with other chemicals to produce R10 Rust Converter. R10 is environmentally friendly yet is a powerful, penetrative product.
R10 is water based and non-toxic. It converts rust to a stable black surface of Iron Tannate/Haematite and Magnetite and forms a strong matrix bond with the original metal. The converted rust is then a stable, non-growing, hard, black material which can be safely cut, welded galvanised and chromed and behaves as steel would in these situations.
The water base is an important part of the conversion process. The tannin chemicals penetrate the porous rust using the water as a travelling agent (solvent based products only work at the surface of the rust).
R10 Rust Converter can be used safely in many industries. Its uses are virtually unlimited. Wherever there is steel there is bound to be an application for R10 at some time. If the rust is caught early and treated with R10, then the time frame between replacing or sandblasting equipment can be extended resulting in considerable savings.
R10 is very economical to use with 1 Litre treating approximately 10 m².
Expensive machinery and equipment should wear out not rust out. R10 is an essential part of any good maintenance program for companies wishing to reduce the effects of rust on their operations.
