OSPHO is for heavy scaled rusted metal.

The type you need to use your chipping hammer to get off the scale then put the OSPHO on it & it will turn blackish & seal it up .

As for its long term effects I just started using this product .
My Friend recommended it ,
He worked in a ship yard.

When using it on NON Rusted metal it has to be washed off after so its pointless to use in that application.

It will leave a white fuzzy looking film, just like the prep stuff that POR 15 has you use.

Just under a year ago I painted a car for a guy that I know. The car had had some rust issues in the past, and they treated it with OSPHO. The underside of the hood was the easiest I have ever stripped, as the paint came off in sheets with an air hose. I have seen this several times on cars that have been repainted, and it has always been that they were treated with OSPHO.

I won't have it in my garage.

Strip it to bare metal, and shoot a high quality epoxy primer on it. You don't need to add any more chemicals to the process.

I agree, but IMO PPG ain't a quality epoxy. After using it then using SPI I am sold on SPI.
