Product Description

Owatrol AP.60 is a rust inhibiting paint for external application to heavily rusted surfaces that need restoring and protecting from further damage.

Owatrol AP.60 is based on a unique formula that combines the fantastic rust inhibiting qualities of Owatrol Oil with that of a high performance corrosion protective paint. Owatrol Oil offers excellent wetting and penetrating properties that enables Owatrol AP.60 to entirely saturate residual rust, and works to penetrate even the deepest pores in the metal to stabilize the surface and drive out moisture and air to form a solid stable layer.

Best Uses

Owatrol AP.60 is a high quality product designed to provide ultra resistance and works to effectively protect metals against the ongoing threat of corrosion and rusting. Creating a solid stable layer than can be overcoated with and number of single pack paints including, alkyd-urethanes, oil-based and glycerophtalic. Ideal for external application to heavily rusted surfaces that need restoring and protecting from further damage.

  • Penetrates deep in to rusted surfaces to drive out moisture and air
  • Forms a solid stable layer that other paints can firmly adhere to
  • Adheres exceptionally well to clean bright steel
  • Completely seals sound underlying metal against corrosion
  • Compatible with all oil and alkyd based paints
  • Use on non-ferrous metals - Zinc, Copper, Aluminium
  • Galvanised surfaces do not require weathering or pickling prior to application
  • Available in 4 colours
  • Forms a sound surface on plastic and wood for other finishes to adhere to


Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease and other surface contaminants. Remove all mill scale, loose and flaking rust and old paint back to a sound surface and edge. Feather in any sharp edges. Surfaces exposed to chemicals (acids, alkalis or salt deposits) should be washed using copious amounts of water or steam cleaned. Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent..

Stir can well before and during use. Do not thin.

New Surfaces
