Evapo Rust

Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right forum for this question but has anyone used a product called Evapo Rust? I bought this mainly to use on the rims of my 1950 Ford before painting and mounting new tires. Any opinions hints or suggestions would be appreciated.. Thanks much.

I use Evapo Rust to de-rust chainsaw parts. I have found it to be slow at cool temperatures and parts can need a scrub with a plastic brush to speed it up. For parts that I don't want to re-paint, I have found that if the part is not fully submerged, that a fine line can be left at the place the evaporust came to. Only a problem if you are trying to have a good unpainted finish that is to be on display. The life with fairly rusty parts is not as good as I expected, so if it will be painted over, blasting or wire wheel etc may turn out cheaper. Forr me, the winning point of Evapo Rust is that it doesn't remove paint or etch. In these situations, it is great.
