Restoring old tools can be cost-effective and rewarding. However, when it comes to de-rusting tools, you’ll find that most rust-removing products tend to be acid-based – with the milder formulas favouring citric acids and the more potent stuff centring around phosphoric acid.
Unfortunately, the downside to a strong acid-based rust remover is that the solution doesn’t discriminate between what is rust (iron oxide) and what is paint, solder, wood, or bare metal.
For this reason, it’s best to avoid these formulas when working with sensitive materials like paint, solder, brazing, stainless steel or chromed surfaces.
EVAPO-RUST, on the other hand, is an award-winning solution that dissolves rust through a process called ‘Selective Chelation’, where molecules within the EVAPO-RUST specifically bond to rust particles without attacking other materials – paint, wood, solder or bare metal.
This means you can use EVAPO-RUST for all tool-restoration applications, and the best part is, the product is also…
