Deox C Rust Removal

I was planning on buying some of the above product as Bilt Hambers stuff seems to be very good and its non toxic just dissolving in water.

I'm planning on an unusual application method on panels that can't be submerged. The plan is to mould a kind of pouch out of a waterproof playdoh material so the liquid can sit against the corroded area whilst using a relatively small amount of liquid. I got the idea from the bomb disposal scene in the English Patient

I know many peeps would advocate rust removal gels but I have never been impressed with them, or mechanical removal but im not convinced it ever gets all the rust.

The question is what material do you think could fill the waterproof playdoh role, and will it work??

I'm thinking something silicone based?

Re: Deox C Rust Removal

With a high enough concentration it should work I would think. I used it normally on the Mk1s front suspension parts, and it did get rid of most of the rust, but not all and ofcourse it does not remove the paint, I would get them blasted if I were doing it again, costs more but much better end result and less faff!

That sounds a good shout. Its tricky to search for without knowing what to google specifically. I have come up with polymer clay which may work.

I've never seen the result of soda or bead blasting although im sure its effective. The reason i wanted to use liquid is that by my reasoning because it seems to be a chemical reacton that produces gas that gas will escape far faster and more effectively through liquid than some turgid gel.
