RIPO

Rust Inhibiting Protective Oil is a drying “wetting oil” pre-treatment, for use on hand or power tool cleaned surfaces and sometimes with brush blasted surfaces, prior to application of (usually)  High Build Rust Barrier.

RIPO forms a water resistant film and is useful in protecting steel from condensation corrosion, as encountered in particular on:

  • Interior of vehicle doors and body panels
  • Underside of surfaces on appliances, such as freezers and washing machines
  • Marine topsides
  • Excellent rust treatment as part of a single pack coating system on; Agricultural machinery and various pieces of equipment, trailers, structural steel

Use RIPO as the first stage in restoring items as listed above. Once cured apply High Build Rust Barrier, followed by Isotal Enamel to achieve long term protective and cosmetic properties.
