  • Eastwood 51483Z Details

    This high-tech formula halts residual rust in its tracks and converts it into a black protective polymeric coating that eliminates the need for sanding. The converted protective coating is a suitable primer, and is compatible with most top coats. Additionally, the protective coating will seal the surface against moisture to prevent future rust growth. Simply remove loose rust with a wire brush, then apply Eastwood's Rust Converter. Allow to dry, then top coat it with a quality coating, such as Eastwood's Chassis Black. Single component; no more mixing.

    Eastwood Rust Converter will convert areas only where rust is present. If there is no rust present, there will be nothing for the product to react with and adhere to. You will only see it convert rust in the areas where rust is present


    Manufacturer's Part Number:

    The Eastwood Rust Converter transforms rust into a protective coating that seals and protects the surface. It quickly prepares the surfaces for topcoating and will seal the surface against moisture to prevent future rust growth. The Eastwood Rust Converter penetrates faster than other brands and is compatible with most top coats.

    51483Z - Eastwood Rust Converter is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Wild Stuff! Just used this product on the frame to my Chevy Truck project. I don't have the setup to pull the whole body entirely off a vehicle so that I can freely grind and wire wheel a frame down to spotless shiny metal, so I opted to this product, since I have used Eastwood's Fast Etch Before which is somewhat similar. All I can say is I'm satisfied. I purchased a gallon and still have a good quantity left. I lightly brushed the frame down with welding wire brushes, and chiseled off areas of extreme "cached on" rust. Cleaned everything off with de-greaser and applied the converter with brushes. You can literally watch this product work as you start applying it. My rusted up frame began turning black in a matter of minutes. Looked fantastic. Applied another coat like the directions state, and now I have left it to cure. I will be following up with some marine grade primer and topcoat I already have, otherwise I would've ordered Eastwood's Rust Encapsulator as well. One thing is for certain however, this does absolutely nothing to bare metal! I had a couple spots which were clean/bare from being covered by various brackets. This chemical didn't phase it at all. So definitely keep that in mind if you plan on using this with fairly clean metal!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great if you brush it on Buy the quart bottle, clean the surface of loose rust, prep with Acetone and brush it on with a foam sponge brush - works excellent. Dont buy the aerosol - very poor results with the aerosol on the same parts.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not "Convert" Rust It actually just covers the rust in a hard, clear coating that can be painted over. Unless my product has gone bad. I can still see the rust underneath the coating. I see pictures and videos of brown rust changing its chemical composition and turning black - just can't confirm that with my use cases. It does seem to form a protective cover though, and may very well prevent moisture from reaching the metal, which would be beneficial. I just can't confirm that yet. I have also not had any issue with the product remaining sticky when applied to painted surfaces or bare metal - seems to harden without an issue.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 60 years of spray bomb use This is the first time in 60 years of using aerosol cans that the can failed. Got dirty and tired getting the scale off my frame and tried to spray and it wouldn't. It took an HOUR to get all the product out of the can!!! I did not use all the expletives i am thinking right now !!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worth the money I even sand blasted the steel plates above my garage doors and put two coats like it said to do and then waited 48 hrs between coats and sprayed the converter on and the next day I painted the steel plates and rust started coming through the latex paint in less than a week, I was really disappointed with the product.I don't believe the latex paint caused the rust but who knows?
