(Item should be free of mud, dirt, loose rust, oil, and grease.)
1.)EVAPO-RUST CONTAINS A SURFACTANT TO HELP IT OVERCOMEDIRT, OIL, AND SOME GREASES.HOWEVER,EVAPO-RUST IS A RUST REMOVER, NOT A CLEANER AND THE PERFORMANCEMAY BE AFFECTED, ESPECIALLY FROM GREASES.
2.)EVAPO-RUST IS SEWERABLE AS SUPPLIED.ADDING OILS AND GREASES MAY CHANGE THE STATUS OF THE DISPOSAL.IF YOU ARE ONLY DE-RUSTING CLEAN STEEL, ALL THAT REMAINS IS CHELATED IRON AND WATER.IN MOST CASES, ONLY THE IRON CONTENT SHOULD DICTATE THE DISPOSAL REQUIREMENTS.(check local restrictions and dispose of according to local, state, and federal guidelines.
3)RINSING WITH WATER AFTER DEGREASING ASSURES YOU WILL NOT BE DRAGGING OTHER CLEANERS INTO THE EVAPO-RUST SOLUTION.RAISING THE pH OF EVAPO-RUST WITH OTHER CHEMICALS CAN RENDER THE SOLUTION USELESS.
EVAPO-RUST 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. EVAPO-RUST 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 60° F (normal room temperatures).
Once rust is removed, rinse item with water.
You can now paint, plate, or apply a long term Corrosion Preventative Compound such as Nox-Rust 3100, Permanent Coating, Corrosion Inhibitor or VCI protective packaging.
For short term rust inhibition, simply dip the item in EVAPO-RUST and allow to dry.
For longer term protection use VCI Paper or VCI plastic film packaging.
Rinse with ordinary water before painting, plating or applying a surface protective corrosion inhibitor or coating.
