rust remover works at a pH of 6.1 to 7 (neutral) through selective chelation. This is a process in which
a large synthetic molecule forms a bond with metals and holds them in solution. Most chelating agents bind many
different metals. The active ingredient in EVAPO-RUST™ bonds to iron exclusively.
It can remove iron from iron oxide, but is too weak to remove iron from steel because the iron is held much more
strongly. Click above for more on "How it works" .
EVAPO-RUSTTM is easy to use. Fully
immerse the rusted item in EVAPO-RUST
™ and check progress in about 30 minutes; no scrubbing necessary.
Soak times will vary from 30 minutes to 24 hours depending on severity of rust, type of steel, and temperature.
Safe rust remover
is water based, therefore the active molecules will slow down as temperature decreases and increase as temperature
increases. We recommend utilizing EVAPO-RUST™ at a bath temperature above 50° F or normal
™ Safe Rust Remover is highly recommended by the NRA gun-smith school and is
utilized by FBI, CIA, NATO and other law enforcement and forensics agencies. EVAPO-RUST™
perfect for removing weapon finishes such as Bluing, Parkerizing, Zinc Phosphate, and Browning. Blueing and
zinc phosphate coatings (heavy zinc per MIL-DTL-16232 and light zinc per TT-C-490) can be removed both at room
temperature (@30 minutes) and 118 dergrees Fahrenheit (@15 minutes). Anodizing, powder coating, chrome, nickel,
paint, and most other coatings will not be removed as long as they do not contain oxides. EVAPO-RUST
™ will not harm lead or solder points. To de-rust the inside of a bore, plug one end
and completely fill bore with EVAPO-RUST™. Let sit for approximately 30-45 minutes
and pour out. Oil with Nox-Rust 7800
or other corrosion preventative.
Safe biodegradable EVAPO-RUST™
rust remover has a
surfactant to aid in penetrating oils and dirt. However the presence of surface contaminants will slow down the
rust removal process. The soils must be penetrated before EVAPO-RUST™ can come in contact
with the rust. Additionally, heavy soil residue can shorten the life of EVAPO-RUST™ . Oil,
grease and other soils should be removed prior to de-rusting with a detergent wash or one of our
degreasers then rinse the part with
water to remove carry over soils and proceed to
Once the item has been de-rusted
, you have several options:
- Wash and rinse the item off and go to the next process for painting,
coating, or other process.
- Wash & rinse the item off and apply a
medium term or
long term rust inhibitor.
- Wash and rinse the item and dip back into EVAPO-RUST™, remove and let dry.
EVAPO-RUST™ will provide about 10-14 days of rust inhibition, depending storage
conditions. Wash and rinse when ready to paint or apply a long-term corrosion preventative.
- Wash and rinse the item and dip back into EVAPO-RUSTTM, remove and let dry. EVAPO-RUSTTM will provide about
10-14 days of rust inhibition, depending on the humidity; wash and rinse when ready to paint or apply a
long-term corrosion preventative.
- Wash and rinse the item, air or power dry and place it inside
Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Packaging such as
VCI paper or

item is removed from the
VCI packaging it is immediately ready for use, further processing, application of a coating or

Rust Remover Shipping and Disposal Requirements
™ is non-hazardous and ships via U.S. Mail, any courier, air freight or regular
freight (class 55). The product is sewer-able in the neat form and, in most cases, only the chelated iron
content of the solution will dictate disposal requirements. The pH of virgin EVAPO-RUST
™ is 6.1. The pH of the spent solution will vary from 6.1 to 7, which means there
is no need to neutralize the already neutral solution. Check with your local water treatment facility and
dispose of according to local, state, and federal guidelines.
SHELF LIFE WORKING CAPACITY &
STORAGEEVAPO-RUST™ has an unlimited shelf life and can be re-used until it is
completely spent. The only loss due to evaporation is the water content.
EVAPO-RUST™ has a tremendous work load. One gallon can remove 1/2 pound
of pure dry rust. Rust is about 1/17 the weight of iron by volume. On average,
one gallon de-rusts
up to 300 pounds of light to moderately rusted steel. As the iron is removed from the iron oxide, carbon
from the rust is released. Some parts may have a black film finish after using EVAPO-RUST
™. The black is carbon from high carbon steel. Generally high carbon
steel is used in making items that are flexible such as springs, saw blades, etc... High carbon steel
and tool alloy steel items, when de-rusted, will have a darker appearance. The carbon can be removed simply by
wiping with a cloth when rinsing with water.
As you de-rust items with the solution the rust remover
solution becomes dark. The more items you de-rust the blacker it becomes.
™ is spent when it is pitch black and no longer performs.
