What are the proper equipment clean-up procedures?

  • The Rust Bullet Application Guidelines contain complete detailed clean-up information. Application equipment must be cleaned immediately after use to avoid damage. Spills must be cleaned up immediately with Rust Bullet Solvent or the product will harden and become next to impossible to remove. Avoid getting on body, clothes, or any surface not intended to be coated. Rust Bullet Coatings are permanent; after curing, Rust Bullet can only be removed with rigorous abrasive action. Clean up fresh, uncured Rust Bullet immediately by using Rust Bullet Solvent, following the directions on the label. Washing with soap and water may work, if done immediately.
  • Use Rust Bullet Solvent for Cleanup. Do not make assumptions about other cleanup solvents without consulting Rust Bullet Customer Support. Even a very small contamination of Rust Bullet with alcohol or other hydroxyl-containing solvents can destroy the moisture-cure reaction partly or entirely without any indication or jelling.

  • Application equipment must be cleaned with Rust Bullet Solvent immediately after use to avoid damage. Thoroughly flush equipment clean with Rust Bullet Solvent. Do not leave residue as it will harden and become insoluble in solvent. Clean equipment as you would with any typical two component catalyzed coating. Always clean brush or roller thoroughly. Dunking dirty equipment in Rust Bullet Solvent will not prevent the coating from curing overnight.

NOTE: If Rust Bullet Solvent is unavailable, xylene, toluene or acetone may be substituted.
