ROCHEM METAL BRITE is a liquid cleaner formulated to remove rust and dirt stains from metal, wood, tile and painted surfaces. It is effective as a phosphatizer, metal, conditioner or wash primer prior to painting steel surfaces METAL BRITE is safe on brass, cooper, aluminium, stainless steel and chrome. It will effectively clean, brighten, and protect metal surfaces from rust.
ROCHEM METAL BRITE is normally used full strength for removal of oxides from metal surfaces but can be diluted with fresh water for removing rust stains from painted surfaces. For best results, surfaces to be cleaned should be free of oil and grease. It is excellent as a general purpose cleaner brightener but it is not intended for the removal of heavy rust or scale deposits not for use on zinc or galvanized metals.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Aluminium Gangways, Brass Fire Extinguishers, Pots and Pans, Stainless Steel Sinks, etc.: Remove oil and grease on surfaces to be cleaned.
Apply METAL BRITE full strength with brush, rag, spray, etc. Wash off with water after about 15 minutes. Do not allow METAL BRITE to dry on metal surface: If oxide is not gone after 15 to 20 minutes' soaking lime, apply another coat or METAL BRITE to the surface to prevent drying. Apply as many coats as required to remove oxide. Do not let METAL BRITE dry up on metal surfaces as it may leave a hard white deposit on the surface. Be sure to wash surface thoroughly with water.
Steel Surfaces. Remove any oil and grease. Remove old paint and scale by chipping or wire brushing. Wet down entire surface with METAL BRITE and allow to dry. If rust exists in pitted surface, more than one application may be required to remove rust. Surface should have a grayish white appearance when METAL BRITE is dry. The steel surface will now have a high resistance to rust and will present a good tooth for bonding of paint.
Phosphatizing Steel Surfaces. For prevention of rust on steel surfaces that cannot be painted, METAL BRITE is applied full strength to an oil/grease-free steel surface and allowed to soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash surface thoroughly with fresh water and remove as METAL BRITE. The surface will now be rust resistant.
Rust Stains on Wood or Painted Surfaces: Heavy rust stains may require full strength METAL BRITE but light stains will disappear with diluted solution of METAL BRITE and water. Use approximately ½ parts of fresh water with one part of METAL BRITE. Apply solution with brush rags, spray etc. and allow to soak 20 to 30 minutes. Wash off with water. Make second application to removed stubborn stains.
ROCHEM METAL BRITE will not damage good dry paint wood or caulking materials; however, it is an acid solution and should not be used on zinc or galvnised metals. Avoid contact with skin or eyes as it causes skin irritation. USE WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION.
