KELATE® is a water based reactive rust conversion coat used for the passivation of steel.
KELATE® neutralizes the corrosion process. It reacts quickly (reaction time is +/- 3 hours) with the rust and transforms iron oxides into a stable and insoluble blue-black metallo-organic complex which is ready for painting after reaction.
The reaction is characterized by the surface turning to a blue-black colour.
KELATE® effects a thorough chemical passivation of the substrate and makes it a sound base for the application of coating systems.
