The POR-15 three-step plan for permanent rust-proofing:
• Step #1 - MARINE-CLEAN
• Step#2 - METAL-PREP
• Step#3 - POR-15
Water-based MARINE-CLEAN cleans and degreases in one application without leaving residues, noxious fumes or flammable solvents. No other cleaner works as fast or as well. It makes petroleum-based cleaners almost obsolete because it can be diluted with water up to 3, 4, 5 and even 10 times its volume while remaining more potent than other cleaners. MARINE-CLEAN removes grease, oil, mildew, algae, musty odors, soap films, wax. Use it to clean canvas, vinyl, nylon, holding tanks, grease traps, auto parts and more.
More details: Adhesion is important with most paints but has to be perfect for POR-15 to achieve its maximum effectiveness. A solvent wipe before painting didn’t work with POR-15; in the lab we found it did more harm than good by leaving a residue that didn’t help with adhesion or appearance. We had to come up with a substance that would clean metal without leaving a residue. What we developed, Marine-Clean, contradicts all accepted theories about metal prep products: it’s water-based, not solvent-based and it cleans without leaving residues. In laboratory adhesion tests, our POR-15 coating using Marine-Clean first to clean the bare metal far exceeded every other prep product we found in the marketplace.
