Safe Solutions- EVAPO-RUSTTM is an amazing rust ELIMINATOR. A product of extensive research, EVAPO-RUSTTM has been proven effective to remove even deep rust on all types of mild steel and iron. It will not remove original paint that is still bonded to the surface being de-rusted. It is safe on all surfaces and will not harm copper, brass, aluminum, plastic, rubber or vinyl.

It works 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-RUSTTM 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.

EVAPO-RUSTTM can be used over and over until performance drops off. One gallon de-rusts up to 300# of heavily rusted steel. When ready to dispose of spent EVAPO-RUSTTM, only the iron content of the solution will dictate the disposal method. In most cases, it can be safely put down the drain.

“Having been in the racing business for over 15 years, I have seen just about every type of new “MIRACLE” product that has come out. But I was really proved wrong with EVAPO-RUSTTM. All you have to do is follow the directions by completely soaking the part in EVAPO-RUSTTM solution. Now because of EVAPO-RUSTTM, we are able to reuse parts on our race cars that at one time were junk. EVAPO-RUSTTM is not corrosive to the metals, and best of all it does not harm rubber or plastic, which is important with many of the brake parts we need to reuse.”
