  • Ferro-Bet Rust Remover
    • Can the Rust Remover damage paint?
      • Yes. If you get spills on areas not to be treated, wipe down immediately with a damp cloth. Use masking tape to avoid damaging the paint.

    • What does Rust Remover do?
      • Ferro-Bet Rust Remover etches away rust. It also adds a layer of zinc that preserves the surface against new rust formation.

    • There are still red areas in the metal after using the Rust Remover. Is this rust?
      • Yes, this is probably rust that is not properly removed unless a red primer has been used. Try reapplying the Rust Remover and use a sanding paper to prep the area for better penetration of the Rust Remover.

    • The Rust Remover just glance off the metal when I spray it on! What is wrong?
      • It is likely that oil or grease on the surface hasn’t been removed properly, which means that the Rust Remover will not adhere to the surface.

        Try to clean the area with a degreaser to get the surface as clean as possible before applying the Rust Remover again.

    • Does the rust remover penetrate the metal?
      • Yes, Ferro-Bet Rust Remover penetrates into the pores of the metal. And when treating both sides of a 1 -2,5mm metal sheet, the product will penetrate through.

    • What are the black spots that have appeared on the metal plate after using Rust Remover?
      • Ferro-Bet Rust Remover can transform penetrating rust or scales into magnetite, if it fails to remove all the rust before drying.

        To remove the spots, you can apply more Rust Remover and process the surface with a sanding paper to get better penetration.

        It is no problem to apply coating directly over areas with magnetite, because the rust is now fully stopped.

    • The product has removed the rust, but there is a black “coating” that is very difficult to remove. What is this and how do I remove it?
      • This is magnetite. It has been used too little Rust Remover, or the amount of rust has been so heavy that the Rust Remover has not managed to penetrate completely.

        Apply more Rust Remover, and work the surface with a brush or a sanding paper to help penetration.

    • It’s cold outside, can I still use Rust Remover?
      • Ferro-Bet Rust Remover is water based and will function down to about 5 degrees Celsius.

        It is most effective if the temperature is closer to 15-20 degrees Celsius.

    • I found a bottle of Rust Remover in my grandfather’s garage. The bottle is from the 1960 … How do I know if the product still works?
      • Dip a galvanized nail into the bottle and see if a white foam appears after 10-30 seconds.

        If there is white foam (zinc), the product still works. If it does not foam up, the acids are evaporated and the product will not have any effect on the rust.

    • What is the difference between Ferro-Bet Rust Remover and Ferro-Bet Rust-Away?
      • Ferro-Bet Rust Remover is a penetrating rust remover for steel that etches away rust and leaves zinc that conserves the metal against new rust formation.

        Ferro-Bet Rust-Away removes surface rust and rust streaks on treated and untreated surfaces.

    • Surface rust has formed on galvanized surfaces, what do I do?
      • Apply Ferro-Bet Rust-Away and let it work for about 30 seconds before removing it.

        The product reacts with the galvanization so that the rust goes away, and zinc is extracted from the pores in the metal.

      • Spray on Ferro-Bet Rust Away and use a brush to scrub. Let the product work for about 5 min. before flushing.

  • Rust Converter
    • I have arcing on the battery poles, both in the car and in my boat. Can I use Ferro-Bet EL-insulation to avoid this?
      • Yes, the EL insulation will penetrate the metal and protect from arcing and poor contact.

        If you already have arcing on the battery pole, this should be brushed off before applying EL-insulation.

    • Should I use Ferro-Bet Rust Converter & Primer as finishing product after using Ferro-Bet Rust Remover?
      • No, do not mix these two products. Ferro-Bet Rust Converter need to have rust to be activated.

        If you remove the rust with Rust Remover, the Rust Converter does not have anything to bind to.

    • Is Ferro-Bet Rust Converter & Primer the same as Corroless Rust Killer?
      • Yes. In 2016, we chose to incorporate Corroless as part of Ferro-Bet’s product range.

    • Can I paint directly on the Ferro-Bet Rust Converter & Primer?
      • Yes, but do a test first. Most types of paint sold today are water-based and can react with a solvent-based primer like the Rust Converter.

        To prevent boiling / cracking, apply Sink / Cold Galvanization before applying a coating or varnish.

    • What does it mean that the Rust Converter is a primer?
      • This means that the product is a full metal primer, and can be used before further finishing products are applied.

        The product also contains thousands of heat-cured glass particles, which gives the surface a better adhesion for the finishing products.

        So, even though the product is a bit more expensive than other Rust Removing products, you get a 2 in 1 solution with a very good durability.

    • Should Ferro-Bet Rust Converter & Primer be viscous in consistency?
      • No, the product should be a liquid, like a thick paint.

        If it is viscous in consistency, use a paint thinner to dilute the product.

    • Are Ferro-Bet Rust Converter on larger packaging?
      • Yes, it is delivered in the following sizes:

        200 ml aerosol, 250 ml, 750 ml, 2.5 l and 200 l barrels.

    • Is the Rust Converter waterproof?
      • No, not 100%. The product is made as a primer, and it needs a paint, varnish or a coating to become 100% waterproof.
