What Do We Know About Rust Formation?
Rust formation on metal surfaces is a common occurrence. In fact, rusting of iron is the first time we academically approach this topic in schools. Scientific studies have accepted that this phenomenon is a natural deterrent and thus, is not a process we can stop. Thus, the logical solution is to clean the surface from rust, apply the right primer, paint and wait for the painted surface to rust again. For critical applications, engineers use advanced anti-rust coatings, despite the high costs.
Typical challenges faced in popular methods to handle rust are as follows:
The process to make sure surfaces and machine parts are rust-free is labour-intensive. The cost of cleaning rust using sander/ shot blasting is also high.
The high cost of protecting the metal surface after the anti-rust coating is applied.
The frequent checking of the painting/ coating to keep a check on the rust formation.
Unnecessary attention that is required to protect from rust which could be gainfully utilized by maintenance engineers for more significant engineering requirements.
Could there be a solution to use on the rusted surface, without such that it converts itself into a passive coating which is anti-rusting, permanently? Anagha Engineers has the solution for you.
Rust Formation - Our Solution
‘SALVAGE RUST’ is a specially designed water-based emulsion. When applied to the rusted surface, it chemically reacts with the rust and converts it into a passive coating which itself is anti-rusting. The coating’s colour changes from brownish to blackish layer, depending upon the degree of rusting over the period of time. For aesthetics/ colour coding, it can be easily painted over; otherwise, this passive anti-rusting coating formed further inhibits any future rusting.
- Clean the surface and make it free from loose rust, oil, dust, loose particles et cetera
- Apply Anagha Salvage rust like a coating with a paintbrush.
- Wait for 30 minutes to dry
- Apply 2nd coat at 90 degrees to the 1st coat
