As a global multi-brand supplier of quality materials handling, maintenance and safety product solutions for industrial producers, commercial users and automotive repair organizations, IPI’s recent integration of this free online chat function is focused on helping users solve problems like ‘how to remove rust from cars, trucks, facilities and equipment.’ The new website offers immediate and enhanced customer assistance in selecting the right rust converting products for specific vehicle, equipment and facility maintenance applications.
Rust, also known as oxidation, is caused when the surface of metals such as iron or steel is converted to iron oxide as the result of exposure to oxygen and moisture. This process of oxidation can result in aesthetic damage to surfaces, structures, vehicles and equipment; or worse, rust can create safety hazards by weakening the structural integrity of these metals through long term degradation, causing structures or materials to become brittle and crumble apart. Traditional approaches to rust removal include sandblasting, scraping, and then priming surfaces with a rust-inhibiting primer. Today, the best method for rust control or rust elimination can be accomplished with the use of rust converter solutions in the form of brush-on liquids.
Primary industrial rust control applications include use on construction equipment, structures, vehicles, auto rust, railings, marine applications, machinery and for general equipment maintenance. Rust neutralizers are also used by homeowners who have a need to remove rust on a variety of steel or iron surfaces. Rust converting solutions work by turning rust into an inert primer, chemically converting rust into a black protective surface. Commercial formulations such as "1" STEP (THE RUST KILLER), is a rust converter treatment that neutralizes existing rust and acts as a smooth long lasting primer on both rusted metal and previously painted surfaces; and it offers the best alternative to less environmentally friendly and expensive sandblasting or wire brushing methods or hazardous chemicals and toxic acid penetrates.
Interstate Products is now offering this reformulated blend of rust neutralizer and treatment for both industrial and residential use that is safer and more environmentally friendly. The new reformulated brand, "1" STEP contains less solvent, no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and no hazardous air pollutants (HAPS); and is compliant with California Environmental Protection Agency Air Resources Board guidelines and the state’s various local air district regulations. "1" STEP is a non-flammable, water based treatment to clean rust and is approved for use on all non-food contact surfaces. The rust converter works by chemical reaction to quickly eliminate rust and neutralize it completely, turning it into an inert polymer and long lasting protective coating.
