Does any one use Corroseal for rust treatment?

It sounded too good to be true. You dont have to brush off the rust, with this treatment it will convert the rust(ironoxide)
into a stable substance, magnetite. It also primes the surface with a high quality latex metal primer at the same time.


Thank you!

Re: Does any one use Corroseal for rust treatment?

No, Iíve completely stopped trying ANYTHING that claims to seal rust. Doesnít matter if itís paint, primer, converter, whatever. Often the products seem to seal in moisture and the rust perseveres slowly eating what you thought you had repaired.


Iíve found there are two ways of successfully dealing with it.

1. REMOVE the rust then seal clean metal.

2. STOP the rust in its tracks with krown, fluid film, or similar applied at least yearly.

On restorations Iíve gone to media blasting then spraying por15. While thatís tacky I spray a good primer.

On daily driven stuff and trailers/tractors Iíve gone to the regular application of fluid film. The reason is it simplifies maintenance and repair in the future.

I agree with 2.0. I tried Black Star, same application theory. Disappointed in the results. Maybe this one works better but I kinda doubt it. If you try it give us a review.

Thank you for verifying it to me.

How do you tackle the rust inside of the little holes on the frame?

Re: Does any one use Corroseal for rust treatment?

With the first fluid film application I stick a 24-36Ē tube into the frame with a special tip that sprays in 360 degrees and pull the gunís trigger as I pull the tube out slowly. This totally coats the inside of the frame/subframe. Once a heavy coat is inside the frame itís not really coming out, now I use a degreaser to clean and inspect the areas in the summer, then reapply the nice protective coat before winter comes. I literally reapplied this morning and took it to get the tires rotated. The guys at discount tire though the FJ was leaking something, but it was just a few drops of fluid film where it had heated up and dripped.(they donít see coatings applied like that much here in TN lol)


I think my first gallon of fluid film and the sprayer/tips were around $200 but worth every penny. I just keep an aerosol can of it for touch ups/maintenance.

Hereís a pic of the rear all cleaned up for pics this morning.



Iíll get one post application in the daylight tomorrow.

"Can you please send me a link"

Here is an example of one (they are sold by many makers/sources):

It is also good to get a long straw that is straight, so that you can direct spray into areas around brakes/belts without risking overspray on them.

Iíve only needed to remove rust if Iím prepping for paint. The fluid film type coatings goes right over the rust and stops it from spreading.

Hereís 24 hours post reapplication.


I got my gun and hose adaptor to go into the frame from my matco dealer. No clue the brand, I think it was designed for bedliner application or some such.
