About this deal

Well, Evapo Rust should know what they're talking about I suppose, but sure as heck it isn't carbon migration. Distinctly underwhelming performance on lightly rusted mild steel even though it was left in the solution for days. I don't mean spraying down with wd40 etc that is not ideal when storing tools in pouches or tool boxes. When I was sealing a lot of fuel tanks with POR15, their "acid etch" and "metal ready" products were very expensive so I bought commercially available hydrochloric and neutralizing solution, much much cheaper. Then it started a massive argument between a group of people who all had Phds that went so far over my head that I cannot explain the process.

They also say it worked well on larger, very rusty items, mainly old tools, and didn't effect the paint work. Having used very powerful and poisonous chemicals in the past to remove rust, it’s great to finally use a product that is environmentally safe and also safe for humans. I'll take a look at the Evapo-Rust SDS again and remind myself what that discloses in terms of constituents. The next morning, the parts were rust free, or needed a light wipe to remove any residual corrosion.

The carbon in tool steel is pretty happy where it is, and the only way to shift it is with heat as far as I know.

If you brush the loose rust off before you put it in the Evapo-Rust, that will help it to live longer.

The citric powder I've only used to clean limescale out of water boiler type things, handy to know it does rust as well.I found this tin of my dad's while tidying the barn and thought it could do with cleaning up and putting to use. I had a few less saturated spots which actually meant the rust stuck to the paper towel and was left on the part. The packaging suggests leaving heavily corroded items overnight if necessary but after an hour or so, we found the tools were looking good, while the metal bar wasn’t rust-free but was looking a whole lot better. They mention that it does a great job on removing a lot of the rusted components, allowing them to be recovered and reused. This product exceeded my expectations in every way and made a significant difference in restoring my rusty items to their former glory.

Chloride ions are brilliant at initiating corrosion; ask the Scots, who's cars rust like crazy because of all the salt they use in winter.
