safe, cost effective and productive breakthrough in rust management
called ENRUST. Thinking outside the box, join team Enrust and be proactive
in the way you manage rust. Rust is like a cancer, left untreated
it will eat away at your assets and productivity.
was, is and will always be a problem with steel. In past years the
only way people or industry dealt with rust was sand blasting or acid
type products, which are hazardous to its surrounding. With new technology
there is a safer, easier, non toxic, cost effective, productive way
of dealing with rust. Enrust is as safe as latex paint ( water base)
and cleans up in the same way (fresh water and soap). Managing rust
with Enrust will prolong sand blasting. As rust appears treat with
Enrust, let dry (cure) for 24 hours and topcoat. This process will
keep structures and equipment looking like new and no measurable amount
of steel is lost. Keep the steel you have paid for rather than allow
it to deteriorate and have to buy new steel. Enrust is an easy one
step application, ready to topcoat with most types of paints (water
base, oil base, epoxy or urethane) after 24 hour curing time.
Enrust has cured, it is resistant to most solvents, however, it is
not recommended for complete submersion in liquids or use in high
temperatures. Enrust will begin to breakdown, crack and become brittle
at temperatures of 500 degrees and higher. Enrust saves money, time,
labor, transportation, no disposal of waste, EPA friendly and easy
clean up. Conventional ways of treating rust can not say this. These
are some of the ways Enrust can be safer, cost effective and productive
to your overall bottom line. Most all other activities (drilling,
production,wireline, safety checks, etc..) can be performed while
Enrust is being applied in the work area. With sandblasting this is
not the case. Blasted area has many restrictions and safety considerations
normal operations can be resumed.

lens on hood, safety glasses for when hood is removed.
Protection - Gloves needed by nozzle man - help to avoid abrasion
on hands. Sand under pressure flies everywhere.
Area - Blasters and helpers (experienced if possible), hopper hand
to attend sand pot while blasting, crane operator to fill hopper,
paint/blaster foreman. No other work can be done in blasting area
(wireline, safety check, etc...). Blasted area needs to be primed
before moisture gets on blasted surface (water + raw steel = RUST)

Enrust is compatible with most metals such as copper, aluminum,
stainless steel - will only leave a protective coating. Enrust can
be used on galvanized metal – treat the rusty area ( over
lapping is not a concern – no reaction to galvanize) and top
coat with paint or cold galvanize.

Results Are Similar But Enrust Is A Proactive Way To Save Your
Steel By Being Safe, Cost Effective And Productive To Your Operations
Before It Eats Away At Your Productivity And Steel
primers can do no more than surround rust particles when applied
to rusty steel. The rust is not being treated only covered up. The
presence of rust left on the steel will allow corrosion to continue
under your topcoat,causing an inferior bond . Enrust penetrates
through the rust to good steel chemically converting the rust to
at tough black surface, which serves as a primer coat, ready for
topcoating. Once Enrust has cured it is more flexible than standard
primers, this flexibility prevents the cracking that can lead to
paint failure exposing your steel to the elements that cause corrosion.

||ENRUST is a unique rust treatment, follow instructions
carefully to obtain best results.
Instructions for use.
1. Remove blistered, loose paint, loose rust scale and heavy rust
|2. IMPORTANT: Remove all oil, grease,
salt, or water soluble chemicals with high strength cleaner. Rinse
thoroughly with fresh water.
3. Mix ENRUST thoroughly before using.
|4. Pour the estimated amount needed
for the job into a clean container. (note: ENRUST cannot be returned
to the original container due to rust contamination).
|5. Use of rubber gloves is recommended
because ENRUST is difficult to remove from the skin.
|6. For maximum penetration, work ENRUST into rusted surfaces with a synthetic bristle brush.
On large areas use a roller or spray (airless spray is preferred).
|7. For best results apply
two thin coats of 1 ml.
|8. Apply a 2nd coating within 20-30
minutes in a cross direction to previous coat. Allow to dry for 24
hrs., ENRUST dries to a black matte finish.
9. Clean all equipment immediately after use with warm, fresh water
and dish soap. Once ENRUST has
dried you are unable to remove it.

ENRUST dries to a durable matte black
finish when applied to rusted surfaces and remains clear
when applied to non-rusted metal or other coatings.
For decorative effect or maximum protection
in high corrosive environments, a suitable top coat for
the environment is recommended.
Rust the Better
Since rust neutralization
and priming occur with one application, one step is eliminated
from the treatment process. In addition, surfaces do not
need to be completely rust free. In fact, the presence
of some rust on the surface is actually beneficial when
The temperature of the air and the
surface being treated should be between 50°F and 90°F.
Do not apply in high wind conditions or direct sunlight.
Apply to clean dry or damp (not wet), clean surfaces.

|How ENRUST Works...
Converts rust to
a stable black iron oxide magnetite and primes metal for painting
in just one easy application!
uses of ENRUST
|ENRUST is not recommended for use in applications
where total immersion in water or any other fluid is required,
i.e., the bottom of ships, ballast tanks, storage tanks;
however, with a cross linked top coat such as urethane,
or epoxy, ENRUST might work. The customer must test
to their appliction and satisfaction. We do not recommend
ENRUST for these applications without
first testing ENRUST's performance.
|Phosphates or oils on the surface must be
removed before applying ENRUST.
|Maximum protection is attained when ENRUST is properly applied and top coated
with material best suited to the particular environment.

IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
AND OSPHO (PHOSPHORIC ACID)?
One of the most common
treatments to chemically neutralize rust has been the use of phosphoric
and similar acids. Although acid treatments offer an economical alternative
to sandblasting, there are a number of limitations. Phosphoric acid may
not completely neutralize all of the different rust formations. Acid neutralization
may not be a solution because of environmental and safety considerations,
as well as difficulties in field applications. After treatment, residual
acid salts can cause blistering of the protective coating if not removed
from the pores of steel; and, treated surface may need washing to remove

No shipping restrictions.
Phosphoric acid is corrosive- shipping restricted.
Chemically converts rust to magnetite, which is stable and non-rusting.
Turns rust into unstable iron phosphate compound.
A long lasting black primer coating is left on the steel surface.
The gray ferrous phosphate has a short life span before rust reappears.
