Product Overview:

Description

Eastwood Rust Remover

Even the oldest, rustiest metal parts can be restored by using our automotive rust removal solution. Eastwood Rust Dissolver removes only the rust and won't eat away at the metal itself. This leaves the newly de-rusted metal ready to paint, plate or powder-coat. Our rust remover outperforms many comparable products such as Rust-oleum while costing less, letting you renew body panels, engine blocks, springs, tubes and much more.

Liquid Rust Dissolver works as long as the surface is wet. Simply submerge the part let it sit for at least eight hours. Items that cannot be fully immersed due to size can be placed in the discharge stream of a commonly available small pump. Another option is to apply our Rust Remover Gel to the surface, then loosely cover the part in plastic or saran wrap for protection. One gallon of liquid or gel de-rusts about 20 square feet of metal. Once you’re finished with the rust dissolver, wipe the surface down with Eastwood PRE Painting Prep to remove any remaining loose rust. Learn more about our rust removal solutions at the Eastwood Garage.

Eastwood Rust Dissolver Features:

  • Gentle enough for engine parts
  • Reusable
  • Removes about 5 sq. ft. of rust per quart

WARNING: This is an acid-based formula that can damage aluminum and plated surfaces like chrome. Also, this product can be corrosive to metals so only allow it to stay in contact with the substrate long enough to remove unwanted rust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from give it a try attacks rust Thought i would try this product on some doors that I am trying to repair. It is amazing how fast this product attacks Rust! the only thing you have to watch for is on bare metal that has been stripped of paint. you can get flash rust but easily removed with the SRT. or sandpaper. I even put some on the frame of my pickup that I am trying to restore, it attacked the rust immediatly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product! Works in just a few minutes! Use a red scuff pad and srub to speed up the procedure within 10 minutes of letting it set. It will dissolve that stubborn rust that is set in the metal without heating it up with a grinder. I was skeptical at first on how it would work. DONT BE! It works amazingly

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed - Gel Rust Desolver I am working on the interior of a truck cab. I had removed the factory paint and primer from the rusted panels and panels that would be painted later. I followed the directions, using the plastic wrap over the product the first time, but instead of removing rust it created surface rust on good metal. On the second attempt, I didn't use plastic wrap and the rusted areas had a nice zinc like finish. But again, the off gasses caused surface rust on the areas the Gel Rust Desolver was not applied. Additionally, the Gel Rust Desolver did not stay well on diagonal surfaces, much less vertical panels.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rust dissolver You should know that this product is designed to be used to IMMERSE the rusty item and allow it so soak. I could not afford enough of the solution and also a tank large enough to accommodate the motorcycle trailer I was working on, so my results were less than spectacular. The ad copy from which I ordered the product did not inform me of the need for immersion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely useless snake oil Thought I would try this on some rusty exhaust manifolds to see if it actually works. Followed the instructions, let them even soak 24 hours. All it did was seem to make more rust as opposed to dissolving any. Complete waste of my money, but not too surprised. A few minutes in the blast cabinet and they are ready to go. Basically, if you can get the part in a blast cabinet, that is the only way to go.

Questions & Answers

Can I use the gel on an engine block without having to submerge it?

Asked by: Devin L
Yes, the gel is an actual gel substance and does not need to be used and a submersion solution like our liquid version of this does.

Can you use epoxy primer after this product as long as you've neutralized it with pre-paint prep?

Asked by: Owen_SpecR1
Yes, as long as you first clean with the PRE you can certainly epoxy prime areas that have been treated with the rust dissolver.

I am assuming this is an acid, so, after you are done do you give the part a bath with water and baking soda to stop the acid process from continuing to eat away the metal? You need to do something to neutralize the acid from continuing to do it's job.

Asked by: Ed 2341
To neutralize we recommend using our PRE painting prep or Acetone.

Can the liquid rust disolver be sprayed inside frame rails and work effectively? If possible, would the inside need to be rinse with PRE or another prep wash before spraying internal frame sealer?

Asked by: JWill
This is really designed to be used on locations you can access to prep and remove afterwards. The only product we have designed for areas you can not access in regards to existing rust is our Internal Frame Coating.
