Example of the usage of RUSTECO R-200-3 CORROSION TREATMENT & PREVENTION

RUSTECO R-200-3 Corrosion Treatment is a fluid designed to remove oxidation corrosion from any type of metal. Here is a step through application Greg Donahue performed to demonstrate RUSTECO's rust removing capabilities.
Greg Donahue will start with the gel first. Using a stiff nylon-bristle brush, apply a film of gel and work it into the rusted area. Here we are applying it to the rusted back of a battery cover. You will start to see the gel turn a shade of brown as it works into the rusted area. After you have worked it into the area, apply a second layer. Now let this stand for approximately 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, remove the rust using a stiff nylon-bristle brush or scuff pad on the gel that you had applied.
Now wipe the surface dry with a towel. You can see how the gel removed the rust and left a clean surface where it was applied.

 

Example of the usage of RUSTECO R-200-3 CORROSION TREATMENT on a wire bike wheel.

Here Greg Donahue uses Rusteco Gel on a wire wheel, he applies it to the wheel using 0000 steel wool.
Here Greg Donahue's wife applies Rusteco Gel to the rusted wire wheel using just a tooth brush. Notice she is not using any gloves to apply the gel, the product is safe to contact the skin.
Now wipe the surface dry with a towel. You can see how the gel removed the rust and left a clean surface where it was applied.

 

Example of the usage of RUSTECO R-200-1 liquid CORROSION TREATMENT on small parts.

Now Greg Donahue will show us an example of the use of the Liquid R-200 rust removal on some small rusted parts. Before starting you must remove any grease, grime or dirt that has accumlated on the rusted parts. For very small applications brake cleaner does a very good job in removing grease and grime from small parts, and will leave a clean, dry surface. If the area were larger, GreaseMaster R-300 would be used, an environmentally safer solution.
When the parts are grease and grime free, he places them in a container and totally immerse them in the R-200 Liquid. The rust is plainly visible on the items we are going to de-rust.
Greg allowed the parts to stay in the liquid for 24 hours. Upon removal they were totally rust-free. Now they have corrision protection as long as they are not exposed to water. Another good thing about Rusteco, if we decide to paint these items they would not need to be primed first. To speed up the rust removal process heat the liquid to between 120 and 160 degrees. This will cut rust removal time considerably. A Pyrex glass container and a hot plate work quite well for this proceedure.
