Anyone ever used Evapo-Rust. Seems to work on rust. Any new product out there for surface rust ? Mike.
It depends on the part you're wanting to de-rust. For complex parts, Evapo-Rust will remove rust in all of the nooks and crannys where blasting can't reach. A perfect example where Evapo-Rust is a better choice than blasting is when I had to de-rust the seat tracks on my '63 Pontiac Grand Prix bucket seats. They were completely rusted, inside and out. I bought a 5 gallon can of Evapo-Rust, and dropped them in and let them sit for 24 hours. The next day, I pulled them out, and the parts looked amazing, almost like new, and they slid back and forth with ease, where before, they hardly moved, due to the rust.For small parts I would think bead blasting would be faster and do a more complete job.
have used this too, cheap at Walmart. :tuI use plain old white vinegar. I watched the videos on ER and it doesn't seem to work any better to me. I usually let my parts sit in the vinegar for a couple of days or so. I plan ahead so I'm not sitting around waiting on my parts to be ready. I take the parts out of the solution, wash them off, take a toothbrush or wire brush to them and all the rust is gone. The first time I used it I was pretty amazed at the results. And the best part is its only a couple of bucks a gallon.
