Product Description

Rust Rid SP is a uniquely formulated, water based surface rust and tarnish remover for all metals. Rust Rid SP is ideally suited for manually removing surface rust on cast iron alloys, tool steels, and all carbon steels. It is slightly less effective on stainless steel alloys. The product is most effective against surface and blush rust. Its mildly acidic formulation (citric acid based) contains a unique blend of surfactants for the effective loosening and removal of surface corrosion from ferrous substrates. It is especially effective at removing surface rust from machine surfaces (tables and tooling) due to improperly maintained or contaminated metalworking fluids. Rust Rid SP demonstrates exceptional wetting and coverage properties allowing for uniform performance on all metals. Rust Rid SP exhibits moderate foaming characteristics. Rust Rid SP is also an effective tarnish remover for all yellow metals including copper and brass alloys. It is especially effective as a tarnish remover for vibratory or ultrasonic immersion applications for yellow metals. Although heat accelerates the corrosion removing capabilities of Rust Rid SP, it can be extremely effective at ambient temperatures, given sufficient concen-tration, processing time, and use directions are closely followed.
