Comparitive Study of Commercially Available Rust Converters

  1. 1. Comparative Study of Commercially Available Rust Converters <br />Jason Church, Anna Muto, and Mary F. Striegel<br />National Center for Preservation Technology and Training<br />AIC ASG 2011<br />
  2. 2. What are Rust Convertors?<br />
  3. 3. Why this Study?<br />
  4. 4. Why this Study?<br /> “Corrosion Protection of Outdoor Iron Artifacts Using Commercial Rust Converters”<br /> Canadian Conservation Institute 1995<br />
  5. 5. Test Criteria<br />Product must be a rust “Convertor”<br />Commercially available<br />Easily obtainable<br />Designed for outdoor environment<br />Picked highest selling product from each of the 4 main acid types<br />
  6. 6. 4 Main Acid Types<br />“Ospho” = Phosphoric Acid<br />“Rust-oleum Rust Reformer” = Tannic Acid<br />“Corroseal” = Gallic Acid<br />“RCx427” = Oxalic Acid<br />“CCI Recipe” = Tannic + Phosphoric Acids<br />
  7. 7. Samples<br />Sheer cut <br />3”x6”x1/16” coupons<br />A36 Carbon Steel<br />Naturally weathered<br />

  27. 27. CCI = 10% Tannic Acid + 10%Phosphoric Acid +<br />
  28. 28. CCI Recipe<br />
  29. 29. Conclusion<br />Rust-oleum Rust Reformer<br /><ul><li>Gave most stable surface after 1032 hours
  30. 30. Least amount of staining and color change</li></li></ul><li>Continuation<br />Analysis FTIR to help understand surface interaction<br />Push Reformer to failure<br />Outdoor accelerated weathering tests <br />
