Plasti-Kote is a rust converter solution. Rust is traditionally removed by scraping and priming. However, Plasti-Kote converts the rust into harmless chemicals and creates a protective film on the surface so there is no need for scraping. Rust converters are commonly used on automobile surfaces. You can apply Plasti-Kote rust remover by following a few techniques.
Things You'll Need
- Dishwashing soap
Remove loose rust from the affected area with a clean, bristled brush. This will prevent any loose rust from getting sealed into the affected areas when applying the rust remover.
Clean the rusted area with mild dishwashing soap and water then let dry. Apply a degreaser. This will prevent surface contaminants from interfering with the reaction of the rust converter.
Dip the applicator brush into the solution then apply an even coat to the rusted areas. It will take 24 hours for the rust converter to fully dry.
Apply a second coat of Plasti-Kote. Wait another 24 hours for the rust converter to completely dry before painting.
