Use Recommendations

RUST CONVERSION (Metal Priming & Preparation)

  • Remove oil, grease & loose scale with a free rinsing water based alkaline degreaser such as PREDATOR, TRIPLE 2 or MULTISAFE.
  • If necessary strip paint with paint stripper.
  • Once surface is paint & free of loose scale dilute PHOSCLEAN 1:3 with potable water to make standard solution (330mls per Litre).
  • Apply diluted product to surface & allow to dry in order to penetrate deep rust & to leave surface in a suitable condition for painting with an oil based primer.
  • Drying times are variable & are primarily dependent on temperature.
  • Note: PHOSCLEAN requires time to chemically destroy rust & it is not necessary to use expensive rust inhibiting paints.
  • Zinc rich paints are not recommended.
  • PHOSCLEAN like all preventative measures will slow but not stop rust from re-occurring.
  • Treated surfaces left uncoated may experience further rusting or flashing so it is important to paint surfaces soon after surface is ready for painting.


  • Dilute PHOSCLEAN 1:4 with warn potable water to make standard solution (250mls per Litre).
  • Simply submerge the rusty parts, leave for a few minutes & then check until satisfactory.
  • Wipe or wash off on completion.
  • As it is not always possible to soak surfaces in a bath apply diluted PHOSCLEAN to surface with a damp cloth, sponge or fine steel wool & keep wet.
  • Once applied allow time to penetrate & work on surface.
  • If surface is porous, prone to runoff or is alkaline (concrete or limestone) a recoat will almost certainly be necessary.
  • TIP: Remember surfaces took a long time to scale, rust or encrust & the process to remove this also takes time.


  • Dilute up to 1:10 with warm water, however a dilution of 1:4 is recommended for most applications.
  • Apply diluted PHOSCLEAN & allow a few minutes to work & then wipe or hose off.
  • Do not allow to dry.
  • Deeply encrusted stains may need further applications & some slight agitation with a brush or light sourer to promote penetration.
  • Remember to keep the surface wet with product & do not allow to dry as process will halt.
  • TIP: Always pre test an inconspicuous test area before tackling your job.


  • Pre wash using AQIS Alkaline Detergent such as AC222 or Hercules then flush.
  • Then use PHOSCLEAN at a dilution to suit your requiremts (from neat to 1:100).
  • TIP: Always allow up to 5 minutes of contact time to dissolve scale & precipitates.
  • Always rinse food contact surfaces with potable water after use.
  • Always pH adjust waste water to pH 7 with sodium hydroxide before release/ disposal.


Avoid contact with Sodium Hypochlorite solutions (bleach), colorbond, anti-fouling paint, marble, anodised or galvanised surfaces & aluminium. Always pre test an inconspicuous test area before tackling your job.
