Rust converter

What kind of rust converter do you recommend? I found Loctite on Lowes website for a low price. Has anyone used this? Is there something better?

I use Ospho by the gallons (well, only two gallons so far, still working on my second).


Some folks like Corroseal in the liquid form, not the spray.

The best is the Rust Reformer that comes in the gallon jugs. For anything not super rusted I use Ospho.

I suspect you get what you pay for with rust converters. I have used Rust Mort by SEM and Krud cutter.

Rust Mort works much better on heavy rust than Krud Cutter but is twice as expensive at $95 a gallon than Krud Kutter.

Krud cutter is good at removing surface rust on bare sheet metal but doesn't penetrate very well.

Here is what SEM has to say. "Rust Mort is an acidic compound that converts existing rust to an insoluble black coating prior to applying body filler, primer or top coat. Completely removes light rust. Converts heavy rust into a stable, workable substrate. Creates ideal surface for filler or primer".

Whatever you get, buy it by the gallon! You will use a lot of it on the floor in your pictures.
