Rigging Guard can be applied to anywhere corrosion is present above the water
line and is compatible with all metals surfaces. Only a thin transparent
coating which can be brushed on in seconds is required for long lasting
protection up to a year and it is weather, salt and fresh water
resistant. Rigging Guard can also treat inside captive ends of cable,
wires and fittings by diluting down and being drip fed into sealed
Apply 1 to 2 times a year or recoat as desired. Required tool: 13mm
(1/2”) brush (not supplied).
Step 1. Surface Preparation: remove surface corrosion,
dirt, water etc; ensure fittings are re-useable and replace damaged
cables, fittings etc.
Step 2. Application: Brush on a
thin almost invisible coating with a brush. Further coats can be applied
for prolonged protection or winterisation/mothballing. Work into crevices. Through
hull fittings, bolts & other corrosion prone surfaces inside/outside of
the vessel - apply liberally or as desired. Surfaces in contact with
sails/sheets – rub brushed coat well in with rag and reapply more
Step 3 (optional). Internal Application of captive ends of
cables/wires – Non horizontal fittings: Remove enough Rigging Guard
for components to be treated & place in another container. Dilute with
60% white spirit. Form a cup of Plasticine around top of fitting and
pour in a small quantity of fluid allowing 24 hours to soak into the
captive cable or wire. Horizontal fittings – loosen fitting and wire or
cable and reposition vertically and follow non-horizontal guidelines
Rubber: Apply to all
rubber components. Rigging Guard aka Rust 'n' Rubber will clean, protect
and rejuvenate new and old rubber. Even thirty year old cracked hard
rubber can be brought back to life. Click here
Brush on & rub into rubber with a
rag. Rub product well into the rubber surface and reapply as necessary.
Apply >68°F (20°C) otherwise thin with white spirit/turps substitute or
leave in warm storage until suitably thinned.
Don’t apply to wiper blades, gas pipes or
other safety critical components etc.
Application Process (Lubrication):
chains, cables, winches, pulleys, windlasses etc. to aid free running.
Apply as per application process for metal opposite.
