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 room temperature.EVAPO-RUST ™ 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.
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 remove rust.
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 VCI Bags. When the clean dry corrosion free item is removed from the VCI packaging it is immediately ready for use, further processing, application of a coating or plating.
- Air or Power dry the item and place inside VCI packaging. The item will require a quick wash (rinse) with ordinary water prior to the application of a coating or corrosion inhibitor when the clean rust free part is removed from the VCI packaging.
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.
Safe biodegradable 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. EVAPO-RUST ™ is spent when it is pitch black and no longer performs.
