Overview

Owatrol Rust Inhibitor is a versatile and deeply penetrating air drying oil renowned for its multifaceted applications. Whether used independently or added to paint, Owatrol Rust Inhibitor offers solutions to rust across various surfaces and coatings. When used on its own, Owatrol Rust Inhibitor effectively drives out excess moisture and air from rusted metal, halting rust formation in its tracks. On porous wood surfaces, it saturates and shields the wood, preventing moisture damage and paint from peeling. As a paint conditioner, Owatrol Rust Inhibitor enhances the performance of oil or alkyd-based coatings, delivering improved flow and adhesion. Unlike harsh thinners, it preserves the quality of the paint, maintaining its appearance and drying times, to result in a more professional finish.

Preparation

First, surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease and other surface contaminants. Remove all scale; loose and flaking rust and old paint back to a sound surface and edge and feather in any sharp edges. Surfaces exposed to chemicals (acids, alkalis or salt deposits) should be washed using copious amounts of water or steam cleaned. Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent. Do not remove firm rust or clean the metal back to a bright finish.

Application

Follow all the advice from the manufacturer before use.

Using Owatrol Oil on new clean steel- First prime new steel with a mix of 1 part Owatrol Oil to 3 parts primer. Then follow with normal paint system adding Owatrol Oil to subsequent coats as directed under ‘Mixing instructions’ below.

Using Owatrol Oil on lightly rusted surfaces- First prime the surface with a mix of 1 part Owatrol Oil to 2 parts primer. Then follow with normal paint system adding Owatrol Oil to subsequent coats as directed under ‘Mixing instructions’ below.

Using Owatrol Oil on new unpainted rusty steel- First prime the surface with a mix of 1 part Owatrol Oil to 1 part Primer. Then follow with normal paint system adding Owatrol Oil to subsequent coats as directed under ‘Mixing instructions’ below.

Using Owatrol Oil on old, severely rusted or previously coated surfaces- First, apply wet on wet applications of Owatrol Oil to all exposed rust until fully saturated and allow it to dry. Saturation is indicated by a uniform glossy appearance to the surface when Owatrol Oil is dry. Before Owatrol Oil has hardened, check the surfaces and remove rust scale and old paint loosened by the above. If needed, touch up these areas. Allow to dry. Next, apply a mix of 1 part Owatrol Oil to 2 parts primer and allow to dry. Then follow with normal paint system adding Owatrol Oil to subsequent coats as directed under ‘Mixing instructions’ below. Note: Owatrol Oil will not lift well-bonded paint.

Applying Owatrol Oil as a Paint Conditioner- First apply paint in a normal manner. If the paint is sticky, drags, sets up too fast or does not level properly, add Owatrol Oil (stirring in well) until the paint works smoothly, easily and evenly. Allow the brush, roller or sprayer to be your guide.

Using Owatrol Oil as a Paint Conditioner for wood surfaces in sound condition- First prime any bare wood with a mix of 1 part Owatrol Oil to 2 parts primer and allow to dry. Follow with a normal paint system adding Owatrol Oil as in ‘Mixing Instructions’ below.

Using Owatrol Oil as a Paint Conditioner on damaged, soft or punky wood surfaces- First apply 2 to 4 liberal applications of Owatrol Oil wet on wet, as fast as the wood will absorb it. Do not allow Owatrol Oil to dry between applications. When the wood cannot absorb any more, wipe up any excess and allow it to dry overnight (12 hrs). Follow with a normal paint system adding Owatrol Oil as in ‘Mixing Instructions’ below to ease application and aid adhesion.
