Remove any existing rust first with a rust remover such as CitriSurf 77 Plus or CitriSurf 2310, using the procedure recommended for that product. Then allow surface to dry completely before applying Rust Rescue. All equipment, mixers, applicators or pumps should be clean and dry prior to use.

Prior to use, mix thoroughly by shaking or stirring. Apply a light coat of Rust Rescue 100 the surface to be protected with a clean soft cloth, sprayer, brush or roller. Coverage is approximately 800 square feet per gallon. Wait approximately 2 to 3 minutes and then wipe off the excess product. Allow the surface to dry completely in air.
