Rust repair business
I'm about to launch
a small rust repair business. I've been looking for the best chemical
to do the job, i.e., stop rust/corrosion for the maximum time, for
a few months now. I realize that this is nearly a "mission impossible,"
but I've heard about few options. Unfortunately, I've been unable
to learn any details. May I have your opinion/advice? Do you think
"CorrosionX," which led me to you, may be the answer? Can this product
be applied directly to a surface just cleared off (by grinding etc),
so that it would constitute a stable base coat before application
of primer, paint, etc.? That is the particular application I plan
to use this product for. If that wouldn't work is there some other
product of the same quality but compatible with a variety of the
topcoats? What other methods or chemicals would you suggest to assure
the longest lasting protection? —Thank you; I look forward to hearing
It sounds like you are going into an unusual business.
There are many products on the market that make claims, but it's my experience they just
don't live up to it. CorrosionX is one product I have personally tested, and it really does work.
CorrosionX, by Corrosion Technologies Corporation, is an anti-corrosion,
fluid thin-film coating well known for its corrosion control capabilities
and extreme-pressure lubricating properties that operate effectively
in high temperatures and under heavy loads. It is also an unbelievable
penetrant to break loose rusted nuts, bolts, and fittings. I found
this to be true when it comes to rusted nuts. Just apply it and
leave on for about 30 minutes, claims the manufacturer (I've seen
it take less time), and remove the rusted nut with very little effort.
This product works well to remove rust from firearms, to protect
surfaces of table saws and drill chucks, to clean copper, and for
all marine applications. As a hunter, I use it on my firearms—it's
unbelievable to see rust come off the barrel on a white rag when
that rust is not visible to the naked eye! CorrosionX is not a sealant.
It contains no wax, tar, PTFE or silicone and does not leave a sticky,
gummy mess behind. It won't "flash off" or dry to a hard, rigid
coating that can crack under stress. It remains flexible and provides
long-term protection against moisture contamination or corrosion.
Among its many applications, CorrosionX works well on bare or cleaned-off
metal. If your customer wants the natural look of metal, then apply
Use it for lubricating all pivots, lever pins, and moving parts
of linkage areas and for single package gas and electric units,
aluminum coils, electrical sockets, pins, and connectors. It can
be sprayed directly into electric motors to displace moisture on
the windings to prevent future corrosion buildup and to treat all
switches, solenoids, harness pins, connectors, terminal blocks,
sensors and relays. CorrosionX is perfect for rheostats, condensers,
thermostats, control valve shafts, cylinders, and damper or economizer
lubrication points. In a heavily-corrosive atmosphere, it should
be applied to all structural members inside and out on an annual
basis. For exterior use, depending on the exposure and the geographical
area, you could plan to apply CorrosionX at least twice a year.
A light coating is sufficient for normal usage and should provide
a full year's protection (commercial and industrial applications
may require service at shorter intervals).
Because of the product's
hydrocarbon (mineral oil) base, it is not usable as a base coat.
Yes, you could apply it and let it sit for about 4 days but then
you would need a good degreaser or denatured alcohol to clean the
surface before primer application. Professionally speaking, I would
turn to Rust-Oleum for information on rust-preventive primers. This
is their specialty. Check out their web site www.rust-oleum.com
to learn more about their products.
Don't take just my word for it. Pick up a can of CorrosionX
from my web site. Try the copper test for yourself. Get a
copper wire coated with oxidation, spray it on, and wait about 30
minutes. See if you can wipe away the oxidation with your finger.
I believe you will be amazed at the results—it will just put
your mind into overdrive. I found it very useful on table saw tops—spray
it on and—and use #0000 steel wool to remove the rust. Coin collectors
should see this product as a lifesaver when comes to old coins,
because it won't hurt the surface. If you find an old penny that's
pure copper, try it out for yourself. Let me know after you
have had a chance to test the product—I want your comments
so I can post them up on the web. Thanks for getting in touch with
