RUSTARRESTOR™ ROOF RUST REMOVAL USING SOLVENT-BASED COATING
For Roof Rust Removal Using Solvent-Based Coating
Reference # 9
The success of any coating applied to metal depends upon the effective surface preparation of any underlying corrosion. The chemistry of RustArrestor™ for use with solvent based systems make this possible using less labor than other rust removal methods.
RustArrestor™ is applied to metal roof surfaces prior to power washing. It penetrates and loosens light rust in just 10 minutes for removal with high pressure water. It also converts other rust to a more stable oxide making it ready for coating.
RustArrestor™ easily prepares rust and makes it ready for coating.
- Dissolves light corrosion
- Cleans the roof surface
- Easy to use, may be brushed or sprayed on
- Leaves no film
- Pre-mixed and ready to use

Q. What makes SGWB so special?
A: Labor savings for one. Effectiveness against moisture seepage for two. All traditional competitors require taping all seams to help prevent leaks at these common entry points. That’s a lot of hours being on hands-and-knees to accomplish what SGWB does much quicker with a spray-on or brush-on application using long handled roofing brush. Capillary action causes most leakage along otherwise tightened seams. A SGWB strip along seams adds a product having over 750% elongation and 350psi ultimate strength. Typical water based coatings provide as little as 1/3 that. By incorporating SGWB you are improving your results at your project’s most critical areas.
Q. What about more critical areas, like suspect seams or terminations? Can I reinforce those using mesh like your PolyCore™ polyester cloth that comes in 4” or 6” wide rolls?
A: Absolutely. You simply use the mesh where needed most. This saves you more, and improves your outcome more, since SGWB adds protection needed against minor movement from thermal expansion/contraction.
Q. Is SGWB compatible with Topps Seal WB and also 100% acrylic products like TS Commercial WB 100% acrylic?
Q. Can I use SGWB with the Topps flagship non-water based roof coating like Topps Seal?
A: No. When using our non-water based products switch to Topps Seam/RivetGuard™.
