How To Remove Rust - NuGenTec Rust Remover and Rust Remover HD

rust remover

Rust removal can seem impossible without the right solutions.  NuGenTec keeps it simple and easy with Rust Remover and Rust Remover HD .  NuGenTec’s Rust Remover can be used for light or moderate rust removal, whereas Rust Remover HD can be used for heavy duty rust removal.  Often, rust removal coincides cleaning or degreasing. For this reason, Rust Remover  and Rust Remover HD  are equipped to simultaneously remove rust while performing heavy duty degreasing.  To learn about how Rust Remover works, let’s first learn about rust.

What is Rust?

Rust is the common name for iron oxide.  Rust forms as the result of an electrochemical reaction involving a metal that will readily give up electrons (an anode), a medium that allows the transfer of electrons (such as water), and a metal that will readily accept electrons (a cathode).  In the case of steel or iron that rusts, oxygen will accept electrons from iron in the presence of water and form iron oxide.

Zero VOC Rust Remover

In addition to being the fastest and most powerful Rust Remover line, NuGenTec’s Rust Remover and Rust Remover HD Rust Remover HD are VOC Free.

What is a VOC?

VOCs (Volatile Organic Chemicals) are molecules emitted as a gas from a solid or liquid and have harmful effects.  VOCs react with oxides of nitrogen in the presence of sunlight to create ground-level ozone, which is the main component of smog.  These precursors to ground-level ozone have far-ranging and long-lasting effects on human health and the environment.

Additionally, short-term exposure to VOCs can present health risks such as irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, in addition to headaches while long-term exposure can lead to cancer and permanent liver, kidney, or nervous system damage.  For these reasons, communities have concerns about the presence of VOCs in industries and NuGenTec has opted to formulate Rust Remover and Rust Remover HD without VOCs.


Rust Remover and Simultaneous Degreaser - Rust Remover and Rust Remover HD

For thickest rusts that are the most difficult to remove, Rust Remover HD is the clear choice.  For moderate or light rust, Rust Remover will easily remove the rust. Both are perfect for rust stripping, derusting with simultaneous or separate treatment for paint stripping, heavy duty degreasing.
