    Owatrol is a powerful metal rust remover, rust treatment which Gets To The Root Of The Problem... Expels Moisture And Oxygen = Rust Food  

    Owatrol Oil solves the root cause of the rust problem. Owatrol Oil penetrates deep down into the smallest micro pores of the metal all the way down to the ‘good steel’ behind, displaces moisture and air from those rust pores as it travels, thereby removing all ‘rust food’ and stops the rusting action.

    If you are painting over rust whether you are dealing with a steel bridge,  vintage tractor, rusty steel railings, fire escape, whatever - the problem of rust is universal and the solution is Owatrol oil.  

    See the 33 photographs down below on the left... for detailed information - click on each image. 

    These photos will give you a good insight into the vast number of applications of Owatrol Oil as a solution for rust.

    Owatrol Oil gets into places no other rust treatment can get into. They all sit on the surface and are unable to deal with the hidden moisture and oxygen (rust food) trapped within.  

    How Does This Compare With Other Rust "Cures"? 
    Generally speaking, your normal options to treat and restore a rusted steel surface would be, wire brushing, shot or sand blasting, needle gun, even sand paper.

    In all cases, yes, you can do a good job "ON WHAT YOU CAN SEE".  

    Unfortunately, all those standard rust treatment methods fail to deal with that HIDDEN rust in between the joints, because they cannot get in there! Owatrol has no trouble at all penetrating in between those sections, and in so doing, drives out all hidden, trapped moisture and oxygen, thereby delivering a fatal blow to the rust.  

    More on this process below…  

    Because of its unique deep penetrating ability, Owatrol Oil has been found to be one of the most successful ways to deal with rust on steel.  

    Firstly, in simple terms, (no big words or tech speak) rust develops as a result of the coming together of moisture, oxygen and ferrous steel / iron. A reaction takes place which ultimately causes the steel to break down into the brownish material we call rust.  

    How To Stop Rust.  

    Owatrol Oil works in a very simple and logical way. When applied to a rusty surface, the Owatrol Oil (which is a lot wetter than water) penetrates all the way in to the ‘good steel’ at the back, and while so doing, it displaces all traces of moisture and oxygen / air [rust food] from within the rusts pores and takes their place drying (overnight) out to a clear varnish-like, flexible membrane.   

    In virtually all cases, hidden steel joints, crevices, pores etc contain pockets of moisture and oxygen, and despite any known method of removal, such as wire brushing, sand or shot blasting, mechanical guns etc, these ‘pockets’ cannot be reached which means that despite your best efforts, any paint job will result in a fresh outbreak of rust again in those crevices  pores in no time at all.  

    You might imagine that on a good dry day those pockets or pores will not contain moisture or oxygen…

    You would be very surprised to discover that usually, despite how good the weather is, those pockets of moisture / oxygen are still trapped inside the metal.

    Take the example of the mirror in your bathroom after a shower etc. It becomes fogged up with what is clearly moisture, but yet it will not fall down off the glass because it is not heavy enough.

    If you rub one of your fingers along the mirror you will observe that the moisture will gather into a few droplets of water which will have become heavy enough to run down the glass.

    That is exactly what Owatrol Oil does inside the rusts’ pores. It pushes out and displaces all traces of moisture and air / oxygen (aka rust food) taking over and occupying those pores completely.  

    Like water in a glass, when full it is full and you cannot add any more.

    Same with the inside of the rust pores, when they have become full of Owatrol oil, they cannot take in any more moisture or even oxygen because the pores are already totally full of the oil**, which in turn means that the rust, starved of its vital food, cannot return for a very long time indeed. **The Owatrol Oil dries out overnight forming a clear, varnishy looking flexible membrane.

    There are many other ‘rust solutions’ out there, but none of them can do what Owatrol Oil can do. They all tend to go over the problem. Owatrol Oil deals with the real underlying core issue… removal of ‘rust food’ or the root of the problem from places which no other treatment can get into, thereby preventing return of the rust.

    After several years, movement / expansion / contraction, UV rays, wear & tear etc will begin to reduce the effectiveness of the Owatrol protection and rust will begin to reappear. As we know, nothing lasts forever.

    "Its the best product I've ever seen for rust gates etc"

    By P Keogh Painter Decorator Kerry, Owatrol Oil Rust

    "Hi Brendan, I was talking to you a few years ago about the Owatrol for sealing metal prior to painting. I did buy it in Woodies and I am pleased to say that it was a great success. We have a lot of wrought iron on windows and around the patio areas of our apartment in Spain. Being quite close to the sea, it rusted every year which was a right nuisance. I told you that I would try the Owatrol to see if would lighten this painting burden and it did. I mentioned that I could not give a judgement until three years had passed. It is fine now after that time and we are delighted.Many thanks and best regards. Michael Confrey. P.S. I didn't emphasise also the fact that there is very much a sun factor in Spain, besides the sea air!!!

    Steel buildings (roofs and cladding) can become faded and tired looking.

    You can refresh that building very easily and with minimal cost by using ordinary oil based paint and Owatrol Oil. Make sure it is clean of course. First coat with at least 25% Owatrol Oil mixed into the oil based paint of your choice. This will make the paint stick tight to the cladding. If a second coat is required, apply with just enough Owatrol Oil in it to make it flow out nice and even. 

    You should expect years and years from this method. Can be rolled, brushed or sprayed.

    In May 2012 Terry Wheatley of picturesque Dublin seaside village Dalkey Tidy Towns Committee had the task of refurbishing all their various street poles which had become rusted and pitted despite regular applications of the usual paints.

    “Nothing previously stopped the poles from peeling and rusting,” he said. He asked Igoe International if they had a solutions and the problem was solved quickly and cost effectively using Owatrol Oil in conjunction with standard oil based paint. After 36 months (time of this publication going to press) Terry reported that “the poles look virtually the same now as the day they were done, we’re very happy with it”. The system (Owatrol Oil used with OIL based paint) is suitable for all metal surfaces, steel, cast iron, even cast aluminium.
