Guard RI is a rust inhibitor based on special resins in aqueous medium and active substances, that converts rust to a neutral protective layer.
When applied in contact with rust will turn black from an original ivory colour and will form a coating ready to be painted over or left as is. It is a stable chemical complex which is creating a protective neutral layer that prevents rust from spreading further.
