Application Tips

Remove loose rust and scale using a wire brush. Apply Gel Rust Diss. using a brush or cloth rag. Apply generously, covering all areas. Using common plastic food wrap, lightly cover the area as to avoid evaportaion of the rust dissolver. DO NOT put plastic tightly over surface. Let rust dissolver set for at least 8 hours. Uncover and use a putty knife to scrap off gel. Wash off remaining gel with water. Best results at room temperature If you are going to paint surface, use Eastwood's PRE 10041z to remove any residual dissolver.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still love this stuff This stuff works exactly as I expected. I bought my first gallon of Eastwood rust dissolver MANY years ago and it still works well. The only caveat I have is if you're cleaning rust from bolts, nuts and washers, make sure that -- after your rinse them -- you place them in a container, spray them down with WD40 and shake them up. I was experimenting with a big pile of miscellaneous hardware car and motorcycle folks accumulate, and found that the parts will look as bad afterwards if you forget to lubricate them as I did! (The "good" news is that they will all be the same color rust!) ;-) After another short soaking my parts cleaned up perfectly once again and I was ready to lube and store them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I never used the gel so I bought a quart when I purchased a quart of the "regular" product. More gel-like than liquid, but not exactly what I expected. No matter, it works well; I was pleased. I bought my first gallon of Eastwood rust dissolver MANY years ago and it still works as expected. Don't forget to lubricate your parts with something like WD-40 after you wash them... unless our plan is to paint them right away. In that case, prep as appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good Works very well , I used it not only on iron/steel but aluminum Stromberg 97 bodies and it did I great job. Caution! Do not leave aluminum in longer that 10-15 minutes as it will eat it up but I had no issue with the short about of time I left it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great at removing rust but be sure to neutralize I've used Eastwood products to remove rust for years. Be careful. It is a dangerous chemical and is harmful to skin. After removing rust, be sure to wash the part and apply a protective coating right away. If you don't, you will quickly have a rusty part again. Some auto parts I coat in a light oil. Sometimes I use Eastwood's paint prep and paint the part as soon as the prep is dry.

Questions & Answers

I have a car that had a vinyl top on it and because of that, there is some decent pitting along with surface rust. Would the Rust dissolver or rust encapsulator be better for treating the rust?

Asked by: DaveK
With either you need to remove as much rust a s possible. Dissolver first.

Can it be used on an aluminum pontoon toon?

Asked by: Barry
The Gel and Liquid Dissolver are acid based solutions and can damage Aluminum. We would not recommend this be used for an application of this sort.

I have a Dewalt titanium coated drill bet set that got wet. All the bits have spot rust. Will this remover damage the titanium coating if I soak them?

Asked by: Mike
Just a correction, the product states “Acid Free”, but most likely, your bits have either lost some coating or are dirty from some very small metal shavings or the water that came in contact was imbedded with iron oxide from another tool. If the bits are sharp and functioning, wipe them down with a spray lubricant.

After application do you wash it off before paint/primer and if so with what?  Also what kind of primer to use after. Application?  

Asked by: EJ1957
Yes, this is to be removed before proceeding. The instructions state to rinse with water but Acetone would be a better option. As far as primer- a sealing primer should be used like Epoxy or Self Etch.

Can I use this to remove bubbled up corroded rust on my metal support beams, not sure what type of steel they are?

Asked by: Terri
If there is no existing paint down then yes. You will still want to use a wire brush/disc to knock off as much lose or scaling rust as you can prior to applying and using this.

I used this product to remove rust from some old nuts and bolts and they have become copper plated. why?

Asked by: Algy
Some manufacturers use copper plating as an intial plating step, to obtain better adhestion of the next coating, in a longer series of layered plating steps. I suspect your bolts lost the outer plating coating(s) and were left with (some of) the original copper plating coat after rust removal cleaning. Unsure how that coating would then behave soaking in rust remover.

Hi, will your product work on a gun without removing the blueing?

Asked by: Tzp50
If the gun blue is rust based ("rust bluing", a somewhat lengthy process) then essentially all rust disolvers will remove the gun bluing along with the other rust. Evapo-rust product will remove gun blue also. Is why gunsmiths have hot salt bluing tanks and or hot boxes to reblue rusted guns. The latter (salt solution/ hot box/ rust bluing) you can do yourself if you are careful. Google it. Some antique machinist tools were blued and essentially all rust removers will remove that bluing down to metal as well.
