Zerust®/Excor® AxxaCleanTM 2048 cleans ferrous metals, brass, copper and various alloys of rust and tarnish. AxxaCleanTM 2048 has a pH of about 2.5, similar to a soda drink, making it simple to use and minimizing disposal hassles. AxxaCleanTM 2048 comes in multiple delivery forms; Immersion, Spray- On, and Brush-On. Cleaned and dried items can be immediately painted or welded. For optimum results with AxxaCleanTM 2048, rinse cleaned items with a solution of AxxaVisTM PX-05AN acid neutralizer and dry thoroughly with filtered compressed air.
Surfaces treated with the rust remover are protected from flash-rust for several days in a controlled environment. To prevent the metal from corroding again protect it with Zerust® VCI packaging films and papers. For corrosion prone metals such as cast iron, use a Zerust® rust preventative such as Z-MaxxTM, AxxanolTM or AxxatecTM liquid coating.
