Zerust® AxxaCleanTM 3048 cleans ferrous metals, brass, copper and various alloys of rust and tarnish. AxxaCleanTM 3048 is available in two formulas; immersion and a brush-on gel. Surfaces properly cleaned with Zerust® AxxaCleanTM 3048 are protected from flash-rust or re-tarnishing for several days in a controlled environment. Cleaned and dried items can be immediately painted or welded.
For optimum results, after cleaning with AxxaCleanTM 3048, rinse with a solution of AxxaVisTM PX-05AN acid neutralizer and dry thoroughly with filtered compressed air. For corrosion prone metals such as cast iron, use a Zerust® AxxanolTM or AxxatecTM rust preventative coating or VCI packaging product. AxxaCleanTM 3048 has a pH between 0.5 and 1.5. The product may attack paints, zinc and galvanized coatings. Test product before use. Use Zerust® AxxaCleanTM 2048 if a less acidic product is needed.
