CorrVerter® Rust Converter Primer: The Solution to Rust Elimination and Prevention

Rust, the nemesis of metal surfaces, has long plagued industries with its destructive capabilities. But what if there was a solution that could eliminate rust and prevent its return with just one application? Enter CorrVerter®, the revolutionary rust converter primer developed by Cortec®.

CorrVerter® is not your ordinary primer; it’s a fast-drying, water-based one-coat system designed to convert rusted surfaces into a hydrophobic passive layer. This unique formulation, comprising chelating agents and PVDC resins, works by chemically converting rust into a stable compound, effectively halting further corrosion in its tracks.

One of the key benefits of CorrVerter® is its simplicity. With just one coat, it transforms rusted surfaces, making them resistant to future rusting. Gone are the days of labor-intensive rust removal processes; CorrVerter® simplifies the restoration of metal surfaces, saving both time and resources.

However, like any high-performance product, proper surface preparation is crucial for optimal results. The substrate must be free of loose rust, grease, oil, dirt, fingerprints, drawing compounds, and rust inhibitors. Consultation with Cortec® Technical Service and system adhesion testing are recommended before full-scale application to ensure compatibility and effectiveness.

For optimal performance, it is recommended to remove any loose rust before applying CorrVerter®. Additionally, when using solvent-based topcoats over CorrVerter®, compatibility checks are necessary. Thankfully, all Cortec® High-Performance Coatings are compatible with CorrVerter®, ensuring seamless integration into existing coating systems.


CorrVerter® can applied via spray, brush,
roll, or dip and is:

  • Water-based
  • Single component system—no
    mixing needed
  • Low VOC

CorrVerter® can be topcoated with both water-based and solvent based topcoats including:

  • Urethanes
  • Epoxies
  • Acrylics
  • Alkyds

In summary, CorrVerter® offers a comprehensive solution to rust problems, eliminating the need for laborious rust removal processes and providing long-term protection against corrosion. Its innovative formulation and ease of use make it a go-to choice for industries and homeowners looking to prolong the life of their metal assets.

With CorrVerter®, say goodbye to the hassle of rust and hello to a future of rust-free surfaces. Experience the power of CorrVerter® and eliminate the blast, coat the rust.
