Quick Overview

Non-toxic rust removal gel for parts not able to be soaked in deox-C bath


Rust Removal Gel for Corrosion Protection and Removal

deox-gel is a viscous, highly thixotropic, rust remover, designed for corrosion removal on surfaces or objects too large to submerge in a bath of deox-C. Along with the viscosity builders and preservatives, the active agents in deox-gel are harmless, non-toxic and biodegradable.

A Comparison

Abrasive cleaning methods such as grinding, sanding or blast-cleaning will remove sound steel surrounding corroded areas. The risk of grit inclusion resultant from blast-cleaning, has been proven to cause early coating failure, corrosion and mechanical wear.

Slag-based blast cleaning media all contain heavy metals which when used in open-nozzle blast-cleaning equipment give off dust that may contain harmful levels of these elements.

The use of deox-gel will eliminate the risk of distortion to thin steel sections, which can result from the blast-cleaning process.

Quick Guide

  • Thick gel clings to vertical surfaces

  • Non-toxic, and safe to use

  • Doesn't require constant attention - frees-up valuable man-hours

  • Harmless non-toxic and biodegradable

  • Produces clean bare-metal finish

  • Does not destroy or distort delicate steel

  • Harmless to glass, plastics, aluminium and chrome

  • Eliminates grit embedment - a recognised problem with blast cleaning that can cause premature coating failure


How To Use

Rusted Steel Plate

1) This medium to heavily rusted steel plate has been degreased with a water-based
degreasing agent. Here our surfex HD is ideal.

2) deox-Gel is a thick paste designed to create a deep coating that de-rusts items too
big to soak in a deox-C bath.

3) Here a brush is used to smooth the deox-Gel across the rusted surface, although a
spatula or piece of cardboard are excellent to use. The gel MUST remain in a thick even
layer; brushing out to a thin coat must be avoided.
For very large areas pressure pot spray systems can be used.

4) The applied deox-gel is covered with plastic wrap to assist in the retention of moisture -
heavy corrosion needs a long dwell time and the product must not dry out.

5) After 12 hours undisturbed the plastic film can be removed – the gel has darkened
through corrosion absorption. A steel rule is used to push back the gel layer, demonstrating
the effectiveness of deox-gel.

6) After a scrub with a stiff plastic-bristled brush and plenty of water the treated area is clean
and ready for protection.
