PRIMARY APPLICATION Oakite Super Rustripper, a versatile alkaline compound, does the work of three materials . . . a rust stripper, a paint stripper and a detergent. In one operation, it removes rust, many paint finishes, phosphate coatings, as well as forming lubricants, carbon and shop soils. As a result, it replaces acid pickling to eliminate the danger of hydrogen embrittlement and blistering of subsequently applied plated coatings. It can be applied by tank immersion or spray washing. Super Rustripper meets federal specification TT-C-490C, Method V. It's also authorized by the USDA for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants.
