POLYMER CONVERTER FOR RUST

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

SPM-2000 is a polymer converter for rust, for the treatment of corrosion. This inert compound reacts with a polymer contained in SPM-2000’s formula for sealing the surface from the penetration of humidity. When the treated area turns black, the transformation of rust has been completed in areas free of oxidation, after SPM-2000 dries.

VANTAGES OF USE SPM-2000 OVER THE TRADITIONAL METHODS FOR REMOVING OXIDATION FROM IRON.

FIRST: SPM-2000 is a single step process. It eliminates the necessity of using acids, sand blasting and tedious sanding operations for cleaning. Just apply SPM-2000 using a brush, a paint roller or spray over oxidized surfaces, and SPM-2000 starts working immediately.

SECOND: The use of mechanical methods is destructive and deteriorates surfaces, wearing them out when removing oxidation. These methods remove rust, but not solve the oxidation problem. SPM-2000 eliminates rust, saves the surface and helps prevent future oxidations.

The surfaces that were treated with SPM-2000 may be painted later, since SPM-2000 works as an excellent base and may be painted without previous preparation to the surface.

POLYMER COMNVERTER FOR RUST

In order to adequately prepare a surface for cohesion, eliminate all loose and dusty oxidation, the cracked thick oxidation, loose paint, grease, oil and dirt. There is no necessity for eliminating oxidation until metal is completely clean and shiny. In totally saline media, the surface must be totally rinsed with running water to eliminate the saline residues.

To obtain better results, it is recommended that the surface is totally dry before apply SPM-2000, so that the water molecules do not create a future oxidation or rust.

SPM-2000 may be applied when ambient temperature after 12 hours from the application is expected to be between 10º C and 45º C.

SPM-2000 may not be applied when humidity is high or an exposure to rain is expected within the following 24 hours from the application. If there is an unexpected exposure to water, the spots created when the product runs off, may be removed from hard surfaces, washing them off with water.

CHEMICAL BEHAVIOR

By combining metallurgical chemistry and polymerism, a product has been developed which performs a process in two stages:

In the first place, corrosion converts chemically into a polymer. Later, this polymer becomes a protecting compound for the surface.

SPM-2000 may be applied with a brush, a non-pneumatic pulverizing pistol, a painting roll or glove. Apply it freely. When applying with a pulverizing pistol, let the product pass through a siever. Clean the application tools immediately with detergent and water.

The treatment against corrosion SPM-2000 is a single capacity for iron or steel using a wire brush or by

sanding. It is ideal for using in maintenance in applications were sand blasting cleaning is neither practical nor economic. In these applications SPM-2000 provides a quality level for chemical conversion and protection, especially when it is followed by conventional coatings, such as primers or other types of

finishing.

TESTING PERFORMED WITH SPM-2000

Back on November 3rd, 2008, PEMEX’S personnel from the Maintenance area were gathered with Separation and Pumping System from Activo Cantarell and personnel from the Mexican Company Grupo Cirro Cooper S.A de C.V. in PEMEX’s facilities located at 4 ½ from the Carmen-Puerto Real highway. The purpose of this meeting was to perform a series of testing for the SPM-2000, which the above mentioned company offers PEMEX under the Contact No. 428027621. Through these testing, the product’s efficacy was proven.

As already mentioned in this document, SPM-2000 has an approximate protection of 7 to 10 years and the objective of these testing is to observe by a series of photographs taken in a period of 3 months, approximately, that the product meets with its functional purpose. This product was applied to the following parts: crane boom hook, to a blind flange and a tube section, which was totally corroded.

On Figure 2, it is observed that the part has sections with paint. We should mention that if we apply SPM- 2000 over the painted surface, the product will not perform its function of protecting because, as it was already mentioned, SPM-2000 needs the iron oxide to react. In this area with paint, over time, the crane boom hook will show new oxidation. For this reason, it is important to remove the remains of paint, but do not reach the clear metal because it will have the same effect of not protecting.

In the following Figures, we will observe the mentioned parts with the first layer of SPM-2000, just applied.
