ScaleAwayRustRemover is a chemical solution that can be applied directly to an iron or iron alloy surface to convert iron
oxides (rust) into a protective chemical barrier. These compounds interact with iron oxides, especially iron(III) oxide,
converting them into an adherent black layer that is more resistant to moisture and protects the surface from further
corrosion. ScaleAwayRustRemover is also sometimes referred to as "rust convertor" or "rust killer".
ScaleAwayRustRemover is a water-based product and contains propriatary active ingredients: A mixture of acids,
organic polymers and wetting agents to create a powerful fast acting formulation.
ScaleAwayRustRemover chemically converts the reddish iron oxides into bluish-black ferric tannate and ferric
ScaleAwayRustRemover is used in the conservation of ferrous (iron based) metal objects to passivate and inhibit corrosion.
It reacts with the corrosion products to form a more stable compound, thus preventing further corrosion from taking place.
After treatment the loose ScaleAwayRustRemover residue is lightly brushed off with sandpaper, wire brush or light sand
blasting and the leftover residue is generally left on the object so that if moisture reaches the surface the
active ingredients will be rehydrated and prevent or slow any corrosion.
ScaleAwayRustRemover treatment for metal rehabilitation and conservation is very effective and widely used and it does have a
significant visual effect on the object, turning the corrosion products black and any exposed metal dark blue.
ScaleAwayRustRemover should also be used with care on objects with copper alloy components as the active ingredients can have a
slight etching effect on these metals.
ScaleAwayRustRemover is usually applied to objects which are difficult to sand blast, such as vehicles, trailers, fences,
iron railings, sheet metal, and the outside of storage tanks. It may also be used to restore and preserve iron-based
items of historical importance.
