Paintwork on marine vessels such as ships, boats, oil rigs and platforms can often become severely discoloured by heavy rust staining but fortunately, that does not always mean that there is a danger of corrosion of the base material, however rust staining gives an impression of insufficient maintenance.

Ray Oil Tool supplies Rust Solvent rust stain remover, giving rig personnel the ability to deal with rust staining safely and easily on all painted surfaces all over the rig.

Rust solvent produces astonishingly good results on rig and marine painted surfaces, in most cases the staining disappears from paintwork within 15 minutes of the solvent being applied.

Additionally extends the life of the original paintwork leaving the surface as if it has been newly painted. Rust discoloured metal surfaces, painted areas, glass fibre surfaces, and plastic can be treated with Rust Solvent making them clean so they appear newly painted.

For use on rig paintwork, 
  1. Apply neat or diluted - and just like a regular rig wash, brush into the surface of the stained paintwork.
  2. Leave to work about 15-30 minutes and rust staining will disappear, on most occasions, the surface will appear as if it has been newly painted revealing its original luster and shine
  3. Depending on how heavily stained, reapply using the same procedure.
