How To Stop Rust.
Rust is a naturally occurring, albeit an annoying affair to deal with when you are left with the task of maintaining your home or property.
The general consensus is that no matter what you do try to stop rust, you are fighting a losing battle, and in general terms, as you know, that is not too far from the truth.
The best you can hope for is to find a way that extends the maintenance cycle and postpones this reoccurrence for as long as possible between treatments or paint jobs.
So what are your options?
Traditionally, most people head for the back shed and grab the wire brush and scraper & maybe a hammer for the more stubborn lumps. These implements are usually accompanied by a big dose of sweat and blisters and maybe the odd rust ship in your eye for good measure! Other options commonly chosen are a metal primer, and usually a coat or two of gloss to finish. I smile to myself when I see ads on TV or elsewhere for miracle products that go right over the rust and it’s gone – all by magic!
How does Owatrol Oil work on rust?
Before I elaborate on that I would like to comment on the real problem here. When you understand the problem, you are half way to the solution. Unprotected metal / steel oxidises (gets rusty) naturally, that is the way of things. That happens when moisture and oxygen collects on the metal, that can be open flat sections which dry off fast or hidden nooks and crannies where the real fun begins because they cannot dry out and the ‘rust eating’ process begins and expands.
When steel, for example a (rust free) steel gate is painted, the paint film keeps the moisture and air / oxygen away from the steel thereby stopping rust from developing there. The problem occurs when, due to expansion and contraction (hot / cold), gate banging, scratches etc, little pinholes appear on the paint surface and allow the ‘food’ to make its way in. That’s when the rusting process begins. This process in continuous.
So, how does Owatrol Oil work?
Owatrol Oil is said to be about three times ‘wetter’ that water. Therefore, when applied to rusted steel, this unique oil penetrates and soaks into the rust making its way all the way back to the ‘good steel’ n at the back and while so doing, literally forces out all the hidden moisture and oxygen which together work as ‘rust food’. This oil, believe it or not was discovered as far back as 1935, so we cannot describe it as ‘new’ anyway, Owatrol, unlike ALL other rust treatments deals with the root cause of the rust – moisture and air / oxygen by driving both OUT of the metal irrespective of how deep they are located in the steel such as joints etc.
Next, after the rust food has been driven out – the Owatrol Oil dries inside the pores of the rust into a clear flexible film that prevents the offenders from getting back in for a very long time indeed.
Then you leave it to dry for a day or two or a week, month, whatever – no need to rush back because the rust is now protected by the Owatrol Oil. You can then apply an oil based metal primer and a coat or two of gloss to finish and add Owatrol Oil into both of those to make your primer / paint get into the tight spots etc and help with the finish. Owatrol Oil also adds elasticity to the paint film which helps it cope with that expansion and contraction mentioned earlier, thus adding even longer life to the paint.
When top pro contractors want to stop rust, they use Owatrol Oil.
Yes, Owatrol Oil is well and truly proven to outlast any other known rust remover, rust treatment or rust cure because it is the only product that works on the root cause of the rust. All the others, as you probably have found out for yourself already, either camouflage the problem or hide it in some other way for a short while until it bursts out again as it does. Done properly, you can expect five years or more before your steel needs recoating when you use Owatrol Oil. Try it and see for yourself.

Tip: A good idea, before you grab the wire brush is to simply apply / saturate the rusted steel with Owatrol oil using a paint brush etc. Leave it for an hour or two to soak in and then you will find that you can scrape off all the loosened rust with no effort at all. NO need for a wire brush or blisters. Any tight rust should be left alone.
