This is a very strong commercial use resin and glue remover that should only be used by professionals or competent amateur restoration engineers. Wear Apron, Gloves (rubber Gauntlets) eye protection and a respirator mask. All available on www.rust.co.uk

Stripping steel surfaces

If you get any AS10 on you skin wash immediately with fresh cold water.

Work in a well ventilated area

Apply AS10 by brush to a test area and see how long it takes the surface paint to crack and peel. This will give you an indication of how fast and how much you will need per square foot. If you are working in the heat you may need to retard the AS10 to prevent evaporation. If it is evaporating too quickly put some sheets of damp newspaper over the applied stripper to keep it working longer. AS10 can be left overnight under a newspaper poultice when multi layered coatings are being removed.

Removed AS10and stripped coatings can be placed in an open area to dry, then disposed of as dry waste.

For painting

Once stripped, wash down with fresh water.

Be sure to wear safety goggles to avoid eyes getting splashed when washing out the tank

Allow to dry then abrade the steel with a minimum 300, maximum 80 grit abrasive to form a coarse surface profile followed by Rustbuster 421 body primer. Pay particular attention to the edges of the panels. Stripe coat, load the very edge with Rustbuster 421 primer by brush and allow to flash off (20 minutes at 23c) followed by a full spray coat to the whole panel. Two coats will ensure that there are no holidays (missed areas) in the coating.

If possible work from strip to paint on the same dry day or in a controlled atmosphere.

Paint should be applied to the steel 3 degrees above the dew point calculation at the time.

If in any doubt see the dew point calculator on our website www.rust.co.uk

For tank sealer removal

Test a small area that is clearly visible first. Apply some AS!) to the sealer time how long it takes to soften the old sealer and render it strippable. This information can be used in parts of the tank you are not going to be able to see. You can either physically strip the tank by hand and tools into the tank ( very awkward) or pour some of the AS10 into the tank slosh around the tank to cover the old coating then set aside. Go back to the tank after a period of time examine for peeling. If you need to peel more slosh the remover around again and wait. This is a very time consuming job.

When the sealer appears to be in a gel state it can be washed or power cleaned from the tank. Be sure to wear safety goggles to avoid eyes getting splashed when washing out the tank

After removal of the old liner rinse out with fresh water then follow the tank seal instructions from step one. See data sheet for Slosh Tank seal on www.rust.co.uk data sheet page.
