Jenolite’s 1 Litre No Primer Rust Converter removes rust, providing a seal to prevent its return and allows surfaces to be painted over without the need for a primer. There’s no need to wipe clean, simply leave the formula to dry and after just one application your metal will be suitable for overcoating with most traditional paints. Other properties include good chemical and salt spray resistance. It provides a barrier to water vapour, oxygen and carbon dioxide. Our tried and tested formula also provides excellent resistance to bacterial growth. Jenolite Rust Converter does two jobs in one — it gets rid of the rust and converts the once rusted area into a stable surface, ready to paint, leaving the metal looking as good as new! Jenolite — the professional choice since 1939.

Remove all traces of oil or grease. Remove old paint and loose rust with steel wool or wire brush.
1. Apply directly to rust
Shake the bottle well and pour the required amount into a plastic container. Brush a thin even coat directly onto rusty areas only, working well into any pitted areas, corners and edges. Ensure that exposed corners and edges are well-treated to avoid rust creep beneath.
2. Wait 15 minutes
Jenolite Rust Converter turns treated surfaces blue-black as it reacts with the rust. IF AREA DOES NOT CHANGE COLOUR, RE-APPLY AFTER 30 MINUTES.
No need to rinse off.
3. Ready to paint in 3 hours
Apply a topcoat after a minimum of 3 hours. For the best results paint the same day. Always check product compatibility before use. If in doubt test a small area first.
Do not return excess Jenolite Rust Converter to the container. Wash brushes and equipment in clean water immediately after use. Splashes onto surrounding paintwork and skin may cause staining – wash off immediately with water.
Protect product from frost. Store between 5ºC and 15ºC .
