Rust Remover Gel FAQ's

Fertan Rust Remover Gel is a great option for parts or objects that cannot easily be put in a bath. For example- Fertan Rust Remover Gel is perfect for brake rotor hubs. Simply spread the gel onto the rotor hub, give the product enough time to remove the rust and simply rinse off with water. Be sure to dry the part or item immediately and apply primer, paint, wax or lightly oil to prevent further oxidation.

The surface should be cleaned from oil, dust and old paint etc.
Knocking off any loose rust will speed the process up.

Depending on the amount of rust, the de-rusting process can take as little as 10 minutes up to 48 hours. In most instances it is a 2-3 hours process.

No. Fertan Rust Remover Gel only reacts with rust and will not harm or effect painted and/or clear coated surfaces, plastic, rubber, glass or chrome.

When the Fertan Rust Remover Gel is done removing rust it is important to thoroughly wash the surface with water to neutralize the surface. Be sure to dry the area immediately to keep the area from re-rusting. You will want to immediately cover the metal with a primer/paint, oil or wax to seal the ferrous metal. On surfaces that you are going to paint, we recommend that you do a two-step process with Fertan Rust Remover Gel (to remove the rust) and a light coating of Fertan Rust Converter.
Fertan Rust Converter will take any parts of the ferrous metal that has begun to re-rust (re-rusting occurs almost immediately due to humidity in the air) and convert the rust to a dust. Once this dust is removed via a wet sponge or rinse of water you are left with a coating of zinc phosphate. This zinc phosphate coating adheres to the bare metal and protects the surface for up to six months before any additional primer or paint is required.

Yes you can. Fertan Rust Remover Gel will remove the rust and leave the surface ready to be painted or covered in a light oil. Word of caution- on guns that have been blued, it will remove the blued protective surface back to bare metal. It will leave the metal ready to be re-blued via chemical or traditional bluing process.
