Eastwood Metal Wash 7 oz is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price A little bit of powder in the spray bottle, add water, shake, and presto! Great for final wipe down of bare metal before priming. Be careful to avoid breathing the dust when taking the lid off, it's probably not good for you, so where a dust mask when miking to be safe. Will keep rust away on bare metal, but not forever. Eastwood advertises about three weeks of corrosion protection on bare metal and that's sounds about right (based on my experience).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has worked well fo me I have been using this product for over 5 years right after I remove a piece of steel from my blast cabinet. I bow the part off and then rinse the part down and then blow it dry. You can see is washing away any left over media dust. Once the part is dry I can prep and powder coat the item. It does a great job of keeping rust away for weeks and that is also a big + for me.

I use this with a bit of water in my Eastwood tumbler. I rinse the parts in hot water when done in tumbler. Will the protection it leaves on parts interfere with zinc plating or EW tin/zinc plating? Or should it be removed frm parts somehow be4 plating?

Asked by: BillD3
The rust inhibitors left behind will not affect the Zinc plating.

Would this cause any harm to cam bearings if i were to use it on an engine block with fresh bearings?

Asked by: Lowdenali
The Metal wash will not harm bearings. It could just remove any lubrication inside them.

About Eastwood Metal Wash 7 oz

Metal Wash cleans and protects in one quick step without using harsh or flammable solvents, and promotes topcoat adhesion on bare metal. Mix with hot water; 7 ozs. of concentrate makes 8-10 quarts of solution (or mix 5 level teaspoons with 1 quart of warm water). Apply by dipping or using a pump spray bottle. Metal wash not only removes residual grease and oil but also leaves a protective film behind that prevents rust for up to 3 weeks in dry storage. Metal wash is an excellent prep for any coating.
