Rust Block
June 06, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Rust Block™ is a revolutionary new rust prohibiting technology for the 21st Century.  Rust Block™ is a true water based rust inhibitor designed for extended protection indoors.  Since it is water based, the rust prohibitive coating is easy to apply and easy to remove.  Simply dip or spray metal with Rust Block™ and the protective layer will be applied.  For removal, a quick rinse with tap water will remove the coating.  

Rust Block™ provides one of the lowest total costs of usage.  Unlike petroleum based products, which are tied to the cost of crude oil and require additional chemical cleaners or solvents for removal, Rust Block™ has no additional material or labor costs.  Rust Block™ provides excellent protection and is easily removed with tap water.  No protective clothing or special handling is required.  Rust Block™ is safe, economical, and easy to use.

Rust Block™ is ideal for supporting production line, maintenance, storage, or shipping applications.  A quick dip or spray will provide protection in a fast, easy to use manner.  Rust Block™ is non-hazardous, non-flammable, and it is safe to use on all types of metals.  Rust Block™ will provide protection for up to 6 months, depending on environmental conditions.  

Rust Block is a biodegradable, environmentally friendly product.  Most users simply flush the used solution down the local sewer system during the rinsing [removal] process.  Rust Block works so well that petroleum based products for indoor storage are quickly becoming outdated.  

Rust Block™ is specifically designed for indoor storage applications.  Since it dilutes quickly with water, care should be taken to ensure that water does not come into direct contact with the treated parts.  Direct exposure to liquids will remove the protective coating.  Therefore, it is not recommended to use Rust Block™ on parts that are kept outdoors, where they would be exposed to rain, heavy dew and other wet conditions.

 

Direction for Use

Rust Block™ is a specially formulated, water based rust inhibitor designed for quick application, long-term protection, and easy removal.  Once an object comes into contact with Rust Block™, the solution will disperse around the object and provide full coverage.  As the water content of Rust Block™ evaporates, it leaves behind a thin non-tacky film that inhibits rust for up to 12 months (depending on the dilution factor and environmental conditions).  Rust Block™ can be applied in any of the following ways:

  • dipping
  • spraying
  • brushing
  • wiping (with a soaked cloth)

The Rust Block™ application process only requires a quick dipping to provide the protective coating.  Dipping and spraying are the most common methods for applying the
Rust Block™.  For dipping, simply run the metal objects through a bath or place the objects in a basket for dipping.  Once the metal object has been completely covered with Rust Block™, the protection will be immediately applied (prolonged exposure is not required).  For spraying, the solution can be re-circulated until it is completely depleted.  As with other rust inhibitors, the parts should be clean, dry, and rust free prior to treatment with Rust Block™.    

Rust Block™ is as easy to remove as it is to apply.  Simply rinse quickly (10 seconds) with tap water to remove the protective coating and let the parts dry.  No chemical cleaners or solvents are needed for removal.  The solution is non-toxic and safe for disposal in local sewer systems.  This product contains only biodegradable surfactants.  Local requirements should always be consulted before disposing in local sewer systems.    

Rust Block™ is designed for interior usage (e. g. treated parts must be kept indoors).  The coating is easily washed off with water.  Exposure to weather conditions, such as rain, will remove the protective coating.  Therefore, care should be taken to ensure that no water comes into direct contact with the treated metals.

DESCRIPTION
Rust Block is a specially formulated, water based rust inhibitor designed for long-term protection and easy removal.  Rust block can be applied through immersion, spray or wipe.  It dries at the same rate as water leaving a thin non-tacky film that inhibits rust for up to a year.  Treated parts must be stored indoors.  Rust Block is removed from parts with a simple water rinse and does not require a chemical cleaner or solvent.  This product contains only biodegradable surfactants.
