RAZON Metal Clean MP 101
Metal Clean is formulated to clean metallic surface of scales, formed on the surface during manufacturing stage and rust formed on the surface during storage. Metal Clean not only de rusts, but also passivates ferrous surfaces from further oxidation.
Any metallic surface, prior to coating of protective paint must be free of scales and rust. Since rust and scale are flaky in nature, it is likely that rust and scale flakes could detach and expose further the metallic surface to corrosion, defeating the purpose of paint protection.
Metal Clean is meant for removing scales and rust on iron surface for reinforcement bars in RCC members for de rusting and protection against corrosion due to saline environment or (for steel embedded in ground) adverse ground water effects, prior to coating of iron surface with suitable protective coating. It could be done before iron members are used for fabrication, on after fabrication or on primer-coated surface exhibiting localized protection failures, which need to be rehabilitated or rejuvenated by further protective coating
Method of use: Wit a wire brush scrub the surface, (or with steel wool ). Spray or by brush Apply Metal clean on the affected areas. For densely rusted surface use Metal Clean directly. Apply one coat of Metal Clean on the surface, wait for 10-15 minutes. Apply second coat if necessary. Allow Metal Clean to dry completely over the surface, Rinse the surface thoroughly with ample of water. The surface is now cleaned, de-rusted & passivated against corrosion.
Clean the dry surface thoroughly with dry mop, surface is now passivated and ready to receive protective coating or paint. The passivated iron surface shows high resistance to rusting on exposure to environs. This passivated surface has also high bonding to paint.
Metal Clean de-rusts and passivates the iron surface treated by forming a impermeable ferric film on the surface. This impermeable film on the iron surface is shown to have better and lasting bond to coating and paints, commonly used for iron surface coating.
Caution: Metal clean like any chemcial should be used with precautions. It is good to wear PPE like goggles and gloves while using any chemicals or Metal Clean. Metal Clean has pH <7, viscosity B-4 Ford cup – 13 seconds. Care should be taken when used.
Use ordinary paint brush to coat over the iron surface to be treated, 200 sq ft of iron can be treated with one litre of Metal Clean.
