CorrVerter® Rust Primer
Description:
CorrVerter is a water-based primer recommended for application to rusty or poorly prepared steel surfaces where further corrosion protection is required and good surface preparation is difficult to achieve. CorrVerter is formulated to penetrate rust, eliminate rust, penetrate to the bare metal, and stop further rusting.

CorrVerter contains a novel chemical chelating agent that modifies the surface rust into a hydrophobic passive layer. CorrVerter combines the above mentioned chelating agent with a high solids waterborne latex with extremely low water vapor permeability. The combination of the active chelating agent with a film-forming latex, thickeners and dispersant offers a unique formulation for a primer with excellent protection against re-rusting.

CorrVerter does not contain tannic or phosphoric acids, provides long-term corrosion protection for poorly prepared substrates, and can be topcoated with solvent-based and water-based paints with no bleeding. For outdoor applications VpCI-386 or VpCI-387 can be utilized. For indoor applications, VpCI-396 may also be used.

The combination of CorrVerter and VpCI-396 provides the best immersion coating for submersion in water, salt water, hydro carbons and high salinity water.
Application: Outdoor storage, aircraft, elevators, storage tanks, vehicles, pumps, cargo holds, marine equipment.
Package:
CorrVerter is available in 5 gallon (19 liter) plastic containers. Keep product from freezing. The shelf life of the coating is one year.
