Zerust Axxaclean metal cleaners offer safe and easy solutions for the removal of severe rust.
Zerust® Corrosion Removers
Zerust's Axxaclean™ rust and tarnish removers are powerful solutions for the rework and recovery of metal items. Zerust offers a range of technologies, from pH neutral products to more aggressive products that also inhibit flash corrosion on cleaned surfaces.
|Axxaclean™ ICT®620-RR: Light to Medium Rust Remover|
Zerust 620-RR is a pH neutral dip that removes rust, even in crevices, pits, and threads. It replaces labor-intensive abrasive cleaning that damages surfaces. The product works by breaking the chemical bond of rust and does not harm any other metals and non-metals. Surface may be darkened with carbon residue after cleaning. Cleaned parts must by protected to prevent flash rusting.
|Axxaclean 2048: Light to Medium Rust and Tarnish Remover|
|This is a fast acting rust and tarnish remover. It removes light to medium rust and tarnish, even in cracks and crevices. It is mildly acidic (about 2.5 pH) similar to a soda drink. It cleans and deoxidizes ferrous metals, brass, copper and various alloys without leaving a gray residue. Provides immediate protection from flash rust or re-tarnishing for several days in controlled environment. It may be applied by immersion, brush, or spray.|
|Axxaclean 3048: Light to Heavy Rust and Tarnish Remover|
|This product rapidly removes light to heavy rust and tarnish, even in cracks and crevices. It cleans and deoxidizes ferrous metals, brass, copper and various alloys without leaving a gray residue. It provides immediate protection from flash-rust or re-tarnishing for several days in a controlled environment. It may be applied by immersion or brush.|
|Axxaclean HPW-100C Non-Foaming, Demulsifying Cleaner|
|Axxaclean HPW-100C high-pressure wash additive prevents flash corrosion after cleaning processes by providing powerful deactivation of ionic contaminants, such as highly corrosive chlorides and sulfates on metal surfaces. It is non-foaming and can be applied by immersion, high-pressure or ultra high-pressure wash.|
|Zerust Axxawash NW-10C wash additive deactivates corrosion causing ionic contaminants such as chlorides left by metalworking fluids. It also degreases and removes hydrocarbon soils. It can be applied by immersion, high-pressure and ultra high-pressure wash. AxxaWash NW-10 is recommended for use on highly reactive ferrous metals such as cast iron exposed to inorganic salts and other contaminants.|
