Metal Rescue® Rust Remover Bath

Safe on Everything Except Rust℠

Metal Rescue® Rust Remover BATH is a water-based rust remover designed to remove rust from iron and steel.  If your company manufactures metal parts or receives them from a supplier, with Metal Rescue onsite you can eliminate rust-removal outsourcing or scrapping rusted or corroded metal entirely.

With Metal Rescue BATH, there’s no harsh chemicals; there’s no acids; just water-based rust removal — it isn’t magic…or is it?  Metal Rescue removes rust using chelation technology, which works by surrounding the iron oxide (rust) particles and lifting them from the metal’s surface.  This is no hocus pocus — Metal Rescue BATH is more environmentally friendly than traditional rust removers, non-flammable, fume free and effective at removing rust.

Metal Rescue BATH works in three steps — just soak, check, rinse/dry — and it does not harm other materials such as rubber, elastomers, plastic, vinyl, clothing and skin.

For iron and steel metal parts that cannot be soaked, Metal Rescue Rust Remover GEL is recommended.
