The ready-to-use solution does not require any pre-surface treatment and does not leave any rust behind that may lead to future corrosion.

NCH Australia designed the rust converter so it can also be used as a high quality primer for multiple surfaces.

In addition to converting the rust and corrosion Chelade creates a black polymeric protective barrier resistant to renewed oxidation and deterioration. The protective surface is an ideal base for new paint layers.

Rust is a highly destructive force able to compromise and destroy expensive building materials, mechanical parts and exposed surfaces. When investigating the removal and treatment of rust, NCH Australia found that it frequently proves extremely labour intensive, resulting in high costs for businesses.

NCH Australia went beyond conventional approaches when designing Chelade with the aim of cutting labour time while producing longer lasting protection. Its proven ready-to-use formulation does not require sandblasting, grinding or scraping before application. This unique time saving feature could greatly reduce potential labour costs.

NCH Australia Marketing Manager, Owen Rowe, said; “Chelade is an ideal solution to this kind of problem and has the potential to save hundreds of dollars in maintenance and replacement costs while minimising business interruption. It provides a long-term solution that is versatile enough to work on nearly any surface where rust forms.”
A recent case study affirms NCH Australia’s claims, as it shows the structural integrity of the material can be saved it Chelade is used as soon as rust appears.

“Chelade was applied to a rusted tin roof that was putting at risk the safety of workers and equipment in the office underneath, quickly and effectively converting the rust and creating an impervious polymeric protective barrier that ensured no further rust could form.”
