If you’re planning to paint metal, using Rust Bullet Metal Blast beforehand can significantly improve the longevity and quality of your final product. It’s a specialized metal cleaner and conditioner designed to eliminate rust, grease, and other impurities from metal surfaces, resulting in exceptional adhesive qualities for the paint.
How does it work?
Rust Bullet Metal Blast breaks down rust and refreshes metal surfaces while also etching and conditioning the metal to promote better paint adhesion. It helps prevent the development of rust under coatings and paints, ensuring optimal preparation of the metal for painting. Additionally, it aids in preventing the emergence of flash rust and future paint peeling.
What’s more, it’s very easy to apply. It can be either sprayed directly onto the surface, or the metal can be submerged in it for a thorough application. It should be left on the surface for about 20-30 minutes or until it has fully evaporated. This process should effectively dissolve the rust and etch the metal.
For surfaces with heavy rust, you might need to soak the metal between 20 minutes and three hours. You can do this for larger items by saturating a cotton cloth or paper towel with Metal Blast and placing it on the metal surface. Once the cloth or towel is in place, lightly abrade the area with a scrub pad and reapply Metal Blast. Continue to lightly scuff the area until all rust has been removed.
For smaller parts, you can fully immerse them in Metal Blast until they’re clean. If there are any stubborn areas, lightly scrub them with an abrasive pad until the surface is smooth and free of rust.
To achieve optimal results, rinse Metal Blast off with warm water or wipe it away with a clean cloth. Ensure that the surface has dried completely before applying Rust Bullet coatings or your chosen paint.
