If left unattended to, rust can eat away components in a gas grill or braai. Rust occurs when a reaction takes place between oxygen and iron in the presence of water. This means that metal components are slowly being destroyed at the steel is converted into rust. A rust converter stop the rust process and prevents any further damage to previously rusty components.

If left unattended to, rust can eat away components in a gas grill or braai. Rust occurs when a reaction takes place between oxygen and iron in the presence of water. This means that metal components are slowly being destroyed as the steel is converted into rust. A rust converter stop the rust process and prevents any further damage to previously rusty components.

We used a rust converter that we purchased at Builders on a gas grill, particularly along the burners and burner components, where rust had started to take hold. If left untreated, these components would have required replacement, but a quick and easy treatment with rust converter converted the rust and stopped the rusting process.

Application is easy: simply clean the components and rub down with a wire brush. Use a paintbrush to apply a liberal amount of rust converter to the rusted areas. You will see that where applied, the rust converter turns blue-black where the rust is neutralised. If this colour change does not occur you may need to remove, clean again and re-apply the product.

 

 

The product needs to sit on the components for about 4 to 6 hours and can then be rinsed away with clean water. DO make sure to wipe the components dry after cleaning.

GOOD TO KNOW: For stubborn areas you can use a pot scourer to remove surface grime or rust.
