Renaissance Metal De-Corroder

Renaissance Metal De-Corroder, rust removal solution for iron, bronze, copper and copper alloys, brass, steel, zinc and galvanised materials. Fast and safe, non-toxic solution for removing rust from common metals which can also clean scale and rusty water stains.

Treatment requires little or no scrubbing, and doesn't affect sound metal (under normal exposure), making it a safe choice for most conservation treatments. Amine complex of hydro-oxycarboxilic acid in aqueous solution. pH: approx 4.0.

  • Ruptures the bond between base metal and corrosion layer, reducing rust to a sludge which is easily wiped or brushed away. Clean-water rinse stops the process.
  • Even relatively prolonged immersion over several days has no significant effect on sound metal
  • Much safer to use than phosphoric and hydrochloric acid treatments (gloves and protective clothing advisable)
  • Treated surfaces are stable for up to 14 days to allow for protective finishes (such as Renaissance Wax, see 'Recommended' tab below)
  • Immersed objects will be clear of light corrosion in as little as two minutes. During longer immersion for heavier rusting, periodic checks can be made. Brushing speeds the process.
  • Treatment is most effective at temperatures between 10ºC and 20ºC, colder temperatures slow the action.
