Metal Corrosion occurs where metals are left exposed to moisture within the air. This is due to a reaction with oxygen which in turn creates rust and eventually leads to corrosion. Perform these simple steps to give your new steel the best protection and longevity from corrosion.
Step 1 – Clean It
1. Remove all rough surfaces such as sharp edges, mill scale and weld splatter by abrading, sanding or wire brushing.
2. Remove contaminants and foreign particles using a clean cloth and a suitable non-residue solvent such as Galmet® Enamel Spraying Thinner 300C.
PLASTI DIP® is a multi-purpose, air dry, specialty rubber coating. It can be easily applied by dipping, brushing, or spraying. PLASTI DIP® protective coating is ideal for a broad array of do-it-yourself projects around the home, garage, garden and elsewhere. It protects coated items against moisture, acids, abrasion, corrosion, skidding/slipping, and provides a comfortable, controlled grip. PLASTI DIP® remains flexible and stretchy over time, and will not crack or become brittle in extreme weather conditions. It has been tested and proven in temperatures from -34ºc to +93ºc. PLASTI DIP® can be dipped, brush coated and sprayed. Add more layers for greater protection and grip.
