Effective way to cover rust and stop it from spreading
on June 29, 2010
I have used this product for years to cover up rust on many items, such as my boat trailer, boat lift, trailer hitch receiver on my car, and black wrought iron furniture. This is very simple to use--just spray on and you have a paintable black surface instead of rust (though of course you don't have to paint anything). It's a very easy way to stop rust from spreading.
If you don't want something that sprays on black, then you can use naval jelly (which I have reviewed on Amazon), which will turn your rusted surfaces into a very dark brown, but will not affect surrounding painted or aluminum surfaces (like on patio or beach chairs) if you rinse it off right away.
I use this product on any surface where I want a black appearance and don't have to worry about getting it on surrounding painted or aluminum surfaces.
Bottom line: This is a great product for rust problems. Just keep in mind that using it is just like spraying on black paint.
Update February 27, 2011: I recently discovered VHT rust convertor on Amazon (and have reviewed it), which is a liquid spray that goes on clear and converts rusted surfaces the same as naval jelly. I now use that sometimes instead of naval jelly.
