Restore Rust Remover is a water-based concentrate that removes rust and is nonacidic, nontoxic and biodegradable. Because the remover does not contain acids, only rust is removed, leaving good metal undamaged, unlike some competing products that contain phosphoric acid that sometimes removes good metal as well as rust. The absence of acid also prevents the occurrence of flash rusting when parts are removed from the de-rusting bath. In fact, parts will remain rust-free without further protection for a period of time, allowing time for painting, chemically blackening, or plating parts or tools. The de-rusting solution may be reused until the solution becomes blackened and the reaction time becomes excessively slow. Because the residue is completely biodegradable, the spent solution may be poured down the drain without harm to the environment. A 500ml container of Restore Rust Remover concentrate, when mixed with plain tap water, will make 10 liters of de-rusting solution (approximately 2-1/2 gallons).
- Restores steel and iron tools and components
- Nonacidic formulation removes only rust; plastics, rubber and nonferrous metals not harmed
- Protects against further corrosion after de-rusting
