Tectyl® 5401W RC can be applied on all rusted steel surfaces before painting or repainting when preparation by sandblasting is a problem, e.g. cargo holds, decks, hatch covers, superstructures, pipelines, winches, rails, etc. Tectyl® 5401W RC can be also be used on sandblasted surfaces to prevent or passivate “flash rust”. It’s also particularly suitable for use in the highly corrosive marine atmosphere.
Reaction time : 3 hours / Theoretical coverage @ recommended DFT : 20 m²/ltr / pH @ 20°C : 3-5 / Tectyl® 5401W RC is not a paint. Treated surfaces can be overpainted in 3-6 hours normally. Treated surfaces must be protected by suitable paints/coatings, preferably within 48 hours after application of the product.
Tectyl® 5401W RC (RUST CONVERTER) is a milky white-cream liquid, based on water reducible chelating polymers. It does not contain phosphoric acid. Tectyl® 5401W RC can be used on rusted steel and sandblasted steel as a pre-coating preparation. It is compatible with most paint types and coating systems, such as alkyd systems, modified alkyds, chlorinated rubber, epoxies, polyurethanes, and vinyls. The product is non-hazardous, non-flammable and the dry film is fire retardant.
