Star Rust Converter (VACTAN) is a complex mixture of a vinyl acrylic copolymer and tannic acid for the treatment of corroded steel and iron surfaces. The solution neutralises the corrosion process by converting the rust into a blue / black metalo-organic complex which passivates the surface. It then further protects the surface by filming a film with a low permeability to water vapour and oxygen.
It is self-priming, but for long term protection it is advisable to overcoat with a suitable water or solvent base midcoat or topcoat.
Star Rust Converter has been tested and certified as fit for the use in grain carriage and potable water systems. It may also be used in sensitive food areas. One litre can treat 8-9 square metres.
As well as the marine industry, Star Rust Converter (VACTAN) can be used in the following areas: manufacturing, agriculture, automotive, local authority, road haulage, chemical, heavy engineering, building and construction, among others.
