A balance of phosphoric acid, dichromate, wetting agents and extenders for dissolving rust or preparing rusty metal surfaces for painting. Oxy-gone actually neutralizes existing rust by changing the chemical composition of rust to an inert protective barrier coating to stop future rusting. No sandblasting is necessary! While other treatments can only prepare a clean surface for painting, Oxy-Gone transforms a rusty, scaly surface into an inert paintable surface in just one step. Oxy-Gone is water-based and ready to use.
A rust-inhibiting coating is not a paint
Actually neutralizes existing rust by changing the chemical composition of rust to an inert protective barrier coating to stop future rusting.
Recommended for use under oil base paint or primer. One gallon of Oxy-Gone covers 600 sq. feet. It dries overnight, makes a lasting bond between rusted metal and paint. (Note: Oxy-Gone is not actually a paint.)
Use a wire brush or wire wheel to remove loose paint, rust scales, dirt, oil, and anything else accumulated on the surface. After doing this, apply a coat of Oxy-Gone and let it dry (overnight).
Sometimes, a dry, grayish white powdery film develops. Simply brush off before painting. Oxy-Gone is water-based and ready to use.
