APPLICATION


Methods:

  • Rust-O-Guard must be agitated or stirred thoroughly before use and occasionally during use.
  • It should be applied by roller, mop, brush, or any conventional method so that surfaces are coated well.
  • It applies easiest at temperatures above 50° F.
  • Application equipment should be cleaned after use with solvent.
  • When forms are put back into service, Rust-O-Guard can be easily removed using naptha, diesel fuel, or other solvent and wiping it off. Forms are then ready for the release agent.
