What is VACTAN?
VACTAN is a rust converter that neutralises the corrosion process by converting the rust into a metallo-organic complex which passivates the surface. It then further protects the surface by forming a film with low permeability to water vapour and oxygen.
VACTAN rust converter can be used in the following areas:
Manufacturing, Agriculture, Automotive, Local Authority, Road Haulage, Chemical, Marine, Heavy Engineering, Building and Construction, DIY, etc.
VACTAN is a self priming rust converter but for long term protection it is advisable to overcoat with a suitable water or solvent base midcoat and/or topcoat.
VACTAN rust converter has been designed for application by spray and brush.
