What Ferrocon does:
Ferrocon is a revolutionary product that leaves any conventional product with the same application in its shadow. Ferrocon is a simple, economical, effective and safe rust converter for iron and steel. Ferrocon creates an extremely hard phosphate coating on the surface of the metal, which attaches not only on the surface, but also nestles itself into the microscopic pores and hairline cracks.
As a primer, when compared to traditional primers, Ferrocon has an extremely long adhesion to the finish coating. Therefor, Ferrocon is of great value in the fight against, and prevention of, rust.
The primer is created by exchange of ions with the metal and forms a barrier for corrosive elements such as water, oxygen, acids, etc. Ferrocon forms a protective layer so we have the perfect primer for any coating (except zinc) which is needed to protect the metal from moisture to prevent rust.
Ferrocon will keep the surface of the metal rust free for several weeks (depending on its environment),
How Ferrocon works:
This deruster leaves behind an extraordinary hard phosphate coating that does not only sticks to the metal surface, but also nests itself in the microscopic pores and veins of it.
By exchanging ions the primer ties itself with metal, creating a barrier for corrosive elements like water, oxygen, acids, etc. Also on new iron and steel Ferrocon forms a protective layer; this is the best possible prime layer, since paint adheres better on Ferrocon than on conventional prime layers.
How Ferrocon is used:
Ferrocon can be used on both steel and iron (new and old).
Before starting the application, the surface of the metal must be free of obstructing materials such as grease, oil, paint or other covering materials. Also remove loose rust parts. Then apply Ferrocon where it is required.
Ferrocon can be applied on a surface temperature between 59° F and 176° F.
Shake before use. It’s possible to dilute with water. However, the reaction time will be slowed down.
Ferrocon can be applied with a brush, paint roller, low pressure sprayer or dip tank.
Note: avoid (rain) water during the application and drying process, except if cleaning of the metal is required.
Note: 1 part Ferrocon (possibly used in dip tank) with 20 parts of water, makes an excellent fertilizer for home and garden plants.

- Before starting the application, the surface of the metal must be free of obstructing materials as grease, oil, paint or other covering materials. Remove loose parts of rust.
- When using a spray brush, please shake or stir before you start.
- During the drying process, avoid rain/water washing away the Ferrocon unless you wants a clean blank metal rather than the a protected metal. Should this occur unwantedly, a second application could be necessary.
- Ferrocon can be diluted with water. However, the reaction time will be slowed down.
Note:In order to speed up the production process, one can heating up Ferrocon to max. 176° Fahrenheit. This will dramatically accelerate the reaction time.
Ferrocon is ideal for rust-dip, because there is no evaporation and the solution can be used several times. Not a single spot will remain untreated with this method. Any moving parts such as threaded couplings etc., rinse or wipe off after application.
Do not throw away after prolonged use; dilute with water; 1 part Ferrocon to 20 water and you’ll have an excellent fertilizer for your home and garden plants.

Ferrocon and salts:
Ferrocon is especially recommended for steel which will come in contact with salt, brine water, seawater, etc. Vessels such as, containers, bridges, pipelines, oil rigs, offshore oil derricks and other offshore structures. Excellent tool for removing rust. Metal parts can be dipped into Ferrocon without damaging rubber or plastic washers, gaskets or membranes.
Note: Do not throw away after prolonged use; Dilute with water;
1 Ferrocon: 20 water and you have an excellent fertilizer for your indoor and outdoor plants.
Use how much Ferrocon:
1 liter of Ferroccon is sufficient for an average of 8 m2.
