Rust – Prep

Rust - Prep

Fast Acting Formula Kills Rust & Paint Ready in 20 to 30 Minutes!

A new twist to an old product! This fast acting formula kills rust on contact and converts it to a dry, paintable surface in 20-30 minutes, as opposed to the normal 8 - 12 hours required by other products. Also, this unique formula is actually two products-in-one: it  kills/converts rust or, if sprayed on a bare rust-free panel, it etches the surface like a metal prep and creates the perfect surface for paint, primer or filler! Rust-Prep works by reacting with rust to form a chemically inert ceramic-like strontium phosphate film that becomes part of the surface.  When primed or coated, adhesion to the surface is increased because the zinc strontium phosphate film is cellular and actually creates a locking effect at the paint interface thus going way beyond ordinary adhesion. And the zinc phosphate film results in superior anti-corrosion and welding conductivity.


Rust-Prep prevents rust bleed through and also removes scales and corrosion from aluminum, galvanize, copper, stainless steel, fiberglass and wood.  Rust-Prep dissolves lime and scales from pipes, evaporators, engine cooling systems, etc. and it bleaches rust stains from wood, vinyl, ceramic, porcelain, grout, glass, brick, cement etc.  Rust-Prep has hundreds of uses - if rust or rust stains are the problem, Rust-Prep is the solution! Approved for: Industrial, Marine, Agricultural, Auto, Truck, RV uses.  Available: 16 oz. Trigger Spray Bottle, 64 oz. Economy Refill and 55-Gallon Drums for volume use.

"… Just a short note to rave about Rust-Prep. This product is all the things it claims to be and more!…  The very best feature for those of us with production-minded schedules is the 20-30 minute drying time as opposed to hours of waiting for a dry, workable surface… "

" ...Bare metal needs protection right away to prevent rust from forming.  Tommy used Auto Tech's Rust-Prep, a product that leaves behind a zinc phosphate coating to discourage rust from flashing on the metal surface ... "

“…we have been using your Rust-Prep in our collision repair facility for several months now and are very pleased with the results … it is a great product … our employees appreciate the ability to get back to the project at hand with the minimal dry time. They also rate highly the almost odorless product, as so much in our business today is quite hazardous…”

“…been in the paint & body business for about forty years, and have used a lot of other rust preparations, but none of them compare to your Rust-Prep. I recommend this product highly to every body shop…”
