Quik Tann III Metal Preservation

With minimal prep, Quik Tann III easily converts rust to a primed, paintable surface in 2-4 hours.  Environmentally friendly  - won't weaken the metal or irritate the skin.  It's finished working when the areas of rust turn black. Unlike competing products with high acid contents, Quik Tann III stops working when the Iron Oxide is inert, the metal remains unaffected.  Don't worry about overspray, won't harm fiberglass, rubber or painted surfaces.  So safe, does not require protective clothing.

COMMON USES:  any steel, iron or chrome rusted surfaces.  Protects vulnerable metal surfaces from harsh environments.

PREP:  BASE METAL MUST BE PRESENT.  Brush off loose rust.  Remove grease and dirt. 

DIRECTIONS:  Apply Quik Tann III to steel, iron, or chrome to convert rust to a primed, paintable surface.  Spray, roll or brush on; cures in 2-4 hours.  Surface is completely cured when area treated turns black and is dry to the touch.  Once completely dry, area is ready for painting.  Use when temperature is between 40 and 140 degrees fahrenheit.  Should not be applied when metal is hot to the touch.  If immediate application is require wet down surface prior to applying

CLEAN UP:  Use soapy water to wash hands and clean rollers, brushes and sprayers.

SHELF LIFE:  Up to 2 years.

Uses and Benefits

  • Environmentally Friendly and water-based, Quik Tann III  contains no barium or other hazardous compounds
  • Treats and coats metals against harsh elements
  • Converts iron oxide (rust) into an inert base metal depositing and acrylic polymer ready for a top coat of paint for superior protection.
  • Easily used to protect large metal surfaces where spray application is possible
  • Ready to use. No mixing required.


Quick Tann III Metal Preservation works with ferrous metals:

Carbon Steel
Carbon steel is a ferrous alloy with 0.05 to 2.0% carbon, and is known for its high tensile strength. It can be hardened to heat treatment, and is fairly ductile. Depending on the carbon content, carbon steel has been classified into three broad types. As the carbon content increases, the strength increases, but the ductility reduces. However, carbon steel is susceptible to rusting.

Low-carbon Steel

Also known as mild steel, it is the most commonly used ferrous metal.
It Contains about 0.05 to 0.30% carbon and the rest is iron.
It is malleable and ductile, and bends easily.
It is used in the manufacture of nuts, screws, bolts, girders and other general metal products.

► Medium-carbon Steel

It contains about 0.30 to 0.60% carbon.
It is relatively harder and less ductile than low-carbon steel.
It is used in the manufacture of car components like axles, gears and crankshafts.

High-carbon Steel

It contains 0.60 to 0.99% carbon, and may also contain small amounts of manganese, silicon, and copper.
It is the strongest and hardest of all carbon steels.
It is used to make blades, springs, and high-strength wires.

Tool Steel

Also known as tool and die steel, it is specifically used for making machine parts, metal cutting tools and dies, as well as molds used for injection molding.
It contains 0.7 to 1.5% carbon, as well as molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, and other metals.
It is resistant to heat, abrasion, and corrosion, unlike other carbon steels.

Stainless Steel

Also known as corrosion-resistant steel, it is an alloy of iron, nickel, and chromium.
The important property of stainless steel is its high resistance to corrosion owing to the presence of chromium.
It is tough and resistant to stains, hence, called stainless steel.
This steel can be welded, machined and shaped easily depending on the type of steel.
It is commonly used in kitchen cutlery and cookware, axles, desks, nails, medical instruments, kitchen draining boards, pipes, etc.

Cast Iron

Cast iron, another commonly used ferrous metal, is made up of 2.1 to 4% carbon, 1 to 3% silicon, and 89 to 94% iron.
It is strong but brittle, and has a high compressive strength.
It is resistant to oxidation and corrosion.
It can be classified into different varieties like gray cast iron, white cast iron, malleable cast iron, and ductile cast iron.
Cast iron can be bronze-welded or arc-welded, and hardened or machined.
Cast iron is normally used in the manufacture of heavy crushing machinery, machine tool parts, brake drums, car cylinder blocks, machine handles, gear wheels, plumbing material, as well as several household items.

Wrought Iron

Wrought iron has a very low carbon content of 0.10 to 0.25%.
It is strong and tough, yet fibrous and ductile.
It is no longer produced commercially, and has been replaced by mild steel.
It was used to make ornamental gates, farm and garden equipment, railings, nails, wires, etc.
