Which Corrosion Treatment do I need?

The most effective way to eradicate corrosion is to remove it completely. However even grit blasting the most common rust removal method can present problems as embedment of the blasting medium into the surface can trap corrosion and cause an active cell that can continue the corrosion process under subsequently applied coatings.

Deox–C is a crystalline material that dissolves in water to produce a rust removal bath, it will easily outperform organic acid baths based on citric acid and mineral acid baths based on phosphoric acid. It’s extremely safe to use, non toxic and hazard free. Items should be immersed in the bath until all traces of corrosion are removed.  This method should be first choice where the dimensions of the rusted object allow submersion. Deox C has been used successfully to clean internal water ways in engines, boilers and heavy equipment any rusted item can be made microscopically clean. Available in 1 kg, 4kg and 25 kg packs.

Deox GEL a ready to use viscous paste / gelled form of Deox-C it can be applied to items too awkward or large to submerge. Must be applied as an even thick (2 – 4mm) layer and left for between 1 and 12 hours, highly effective and capable of producing perfectly rust free surfaces limitations are that the process may be time consuming and surfaces must be scrubbed and washed after use. 1kg 5kg and 25kg packs.

Hydrate 80 is a thin film coating that has a highly reactive chelating mechanism; this allows rapid neutralisation of mechanically cleaned rusted surfaces.  A better choice than Deox GEL where speed is required or the working conditions do not allow the application of thick deox GEL layers. 500ml, 1 litre and 5 litre packs
