TRC-15 RUST-BITE is one gallon of gloss black paint for use over rust.
SUGGESTED USES: Heavy equipment, trucks, snow plows, mower decks, tractors and otherfarm machinery, oil field equipment, boat trailers, buses, military vehicles,dumpsters, roll offs, fork lifts, propane tanks, truck bodies, storage tanks,structural steel, pipes, iron works, gates, fence posts, chain link, steel truck rims, metal roofs, sheds, and concrete floors.
DESCRIPTION: Rust-Bite is a high solids, VOC compliant, single component rust preventive and underbody coating specifically formulated to permanently stop corrosion without the use of primers or topcoats. Rust-Bite protects many surfaces from water, chemicals, salt, and other corrosive contaminants. Rust-Bite stops rust when applied to rust that is prepared by using a wire brush or hand scraper to remove all loose rust or scale. For optimum adhesion sandblast with medium grit. Rust-Bite will dry to a flexible rock hard, nonporous finish that will not crack, chip, flake or peel. Rust-Bite cures by reacting with atmospheric moisture and its cured film resembles that of a powder coating or a baked-on finish with the use of no hardeners or heat. Rust-Bite seals and protects many surfaces from road salt, gasoline, diesel fuel, oils, battery acids, hydraulic fluids, solvents, chemicals, or corrosives. Rust-Bite can be top coated with any industrial or automotive finish.
PREPARATION: Remove all dirt, grease or oils, clean surfaces using a Wax & Grease Remover or equivalent. For heavy build-up scrape or wire brush excess material prior to degreasing. Allow surfaces to dry thoroughly. NOTE: Do not apply Rust-Bite if atmospheric temperature is below 50°F.
RUSTED SURFACES: Remove loose rust and scale using a stiff wire brush, by grinding, or hand tool cleaning. Remove all loose, peeling or bubbling paint. NOTE: Rust-Bite works best when applied directly over rust. NOTE: Do not remove all rust or apply any type of Rust Converter before applying Rust-Bite.
BARE, SMOOTH METAL: Sandblasting is recommended but sanding with 36 to 80 grit sand-paper is also acceptable. When blasting, provide a medium to coarse profile for optimum adhesion. Avoid any media that may leave a smooth surface.
PAINTED SURFACES: Previously painted surfaces should be sanded using a 120 to 180 grit sandpaper to remove gloss.
MIXING & HANDLING: Container may be under slight pressure. Stir liquid gently until uniformly mixed. Do not shake, shaking will cause Rust-Bite to build pressure in can. Never work directly from the Rust-Bite can unless the entire contents will be used in a single painting session. Always pour what will be used into a separate container.
NOTE: Never pour unused product back into original container after use.
NOTE: Before closing Rust-Bite container apply a sheet of plastic or food wrap over can, Rust-Bite will adhere lid to can if plastic is not applied. Never allow can to sit opened when not in use. WEAR GLOVES DURING USE Skin contact should be avoided. Do not attempt to remove dried Chassis Saver from skin with solvent; soak in warm, soapy water. Once product has stained skin, only time will remove it.
APPLICATION & REDUCING: Apply 2-4 coats allowing 3 to 8 hours between coats depending on temp and humidity. Each coat should be dry to touch with no tackiness before applying next coat. Rust-Bite is a moisture cure finish which when applied too heavy will have a tendency to bubble while curing. Avoid bubbling by applying thin coats only. Higher temps and humidity will shorten drying time. Low temp and humidity will lengthen dry. Do not apply Rust-Bite if temperature is below 50°F. Never use lacquer thinner as a reducer for Rust-Bite or to wipe surfaces prior to painting.
BRUSH APPLICATION: Apply thin, even coats using a nylon brush. For better flow and leveling, add up to 10% TRC-01 Reducer.
SPRAY APPLICATION: Reduce up to 10% using TRC-01 Reducer. Apply medium-wet coats while maintaining a gun distance of 12 to 14 inches. Spray tip size should be: 1.2 to 1.4mm
NOTE: For surfaces that will be exposed to UV (sunlight), apply a UV resistant single stage urethane paint after 3 - 24 hours.
RECOAT: For films cured over 24 hours, sand using 400-grit abrasive to remove gloss before recoating.
