Rust is one of the most well-known forms of corrosion, in other words: the deterioration of materials through a reaction with their environment. Rust is damage to metal because it reacts to a combination of water and oxygen.
You can prevent such a reaction by protecting the metal with, for example, a lacquer layer, as is done with cars. But if that paint is damaged, the metal becomes vulnerable to rusting.
Treating and removing rust on the car
To avoid future repair costs, it is useful to treat and remove rust stains on your car in time. Follow the steps below to remove rust:
- Sand off the first stubborn layer of rust with heavy sandpaper.
- Spray rust converter on the sanded rust spots to convert them to a primer. This prevents the rust from spreading on the metal.
- Then spray an anti-rust spray on the rust spots to protect your car from future rust build-up.
- Degrease and sand the primer once cured to a smooth surface.
- Spray the correct colour of car paint on the sanded surface in several thin coats. Buy car paint with the colour code that matches your car colour. Let the car paint dry for at least an hour.
Optional: Spray a clear coat over the new car paint. This ensures long-term protection against various external influences.
Do you want to treat and remove rust on your car quickly and effectively? With the rust remover, the rust is immediately removed from the metal without sanding and degreasing. After it has taken effect, you can immediately apply a car paint.

The rust remover evaporates very slowly, so that the effect lasts for a long time.

Do you want to remove rust, and then paint over it again? It is important to remove the rust properly, right down to the pores of the substrate. Only in this way will you start again with a clean slate, so that the problem will not come back soon.
Remember, rust is best prevented. Use rust remover prior to finishing to extend the life of metal surfaces.
