VACTAN is a complex mixture of a vinyl acrylic copolymer and tannic acid for the treatment of corroded steel and iron surfaces. VACTAN neutralises the corrosion process by converting the rust into a blue-black metallo-organic complex which passivates the surface. It then further protects the surface by forming a film with low permeability to water vapour and oxygen. VACTAN is self priming but for long term protection it is advisable to overcoat with a suitable water or solvent base midcoat or topcoat.
VACTAN can be used in the following areas: Manufacturing, Agriculture, Automotive, Local Authority, Road Haulage, Chemical, Marine, Heavy Engineering, Building and Construction, DIY, etc.
VACTAN is used on tugs, barges, narrowboats, ferries, naval vessels, cars, marine buoys, campervans, gates, railings, cars and can be used virtually anywhere on rusty iron.
