Can I put used EVAPO-RUST™ in the same container with new EVAPO-RUST™?
Mixing the used EVAPO-RUST™ in the same storage container with new EVAPO-RUST™ is not a problem. Still, it is highly recommended that you strain or filter out any solid particles from the used portion prior to storing. While mixing both products will result in a darker color, the solution can still be reused.
With EVAPO-RUST™, do parts have to be completely clean before immersion?
EVAPO-RUST™ contains detergents that penetrate oils and dirt. Still, surface contaminants do slow the process. The soils must be penetrated before EVAPO-RUST™ can come in contact with the rust underneath. Soil residue will also shorten the life of EVAPO-RUST™. Heavy greases and cosmoline should be removed prior to de-rusting.
Will EVAPO-RUST™ remove bluing and other oxide finishes?
EVAPO-RUST™ will remove these in about 30 minutes. Anodizing will not be removed. Powder coating and paint will not be removed as long as the paints do not contain oxides.
Can I clean brass, copper, and aluminum with EVAPO-RUST™?
EVAPO-RUST™ will not clean any of these metals. Conversely, EVAPO-RUST™ will not damage any of these metals. EVAPO-RUST™ will not harm rubber, plastic, glass, or clothing either.
I get a black film on some parts after using EVAPO-RUST™. What is it and how do I remove it?
The black is carbon removed from the steel. Generally, high carbon steel is used in making items that are flexible (e.g. springs, saw blades). When de-rusted, high carbon steel and tool alloy steel items will have a darker appearance. Much of the carbon can be removed simply by wiping with a cloth.
Can I spray EVAPO-RUST™ on the rusted area?
No, EVAPO-RUST™ only works in liquid form. When sprayed on a surface, the water in the solution will evaporate before de-rusting can be completed.
