Traditional paints and coatings applied to corrosion give disappointingly short-lived performance because they simply hide the underlying and continuing corrosion – the failure is first seen by blistering of the coating and the rapid breakthrough of rust. Hydrate 80 provides powerful protection to rusted steel surfaces.
Its electrochemical function stabilises existing corrosion by converting the iron oxides into a protective metal complex, it also combines with surface moisture and oxygen depriving the corrosion process of the conditions it requires. Paints and coatings applied to a Hydrate 80 treated surface demonstrate amazing improvements in long-term performance.
Hydrate 80 provides a superior stable barrier to prevent further attack. The cross-linking polymer formulated to provide the tough non-rubbery barrier tenaciously grips the metal surface forming an ideal base for further coatings, paints or anticorrosion wax. Importantly for long-term protection Hydrate 80 doesn't contain chlorine which is known to transform into corrosive hydrochloric acid in rust converter applications causing under-film blistering and destruction of paint finishes or other coating products
- Quickly Kills and chemically converts rust
- Leaves a tenacious protective barrier
- Activates on clean and corroded steel (saves touching in)
- Can remain unpainted for short periods of time
- Outperforms other rust converter products
