How To Remove Rust From Stainless Steel With Inoxiclean
Once you have achieved your high quality finish on stainless steel, it makes sense to enhance the finish that little bit more. Whether it be applying a protective layer, or simply removing polishing residue and contaminants, the InoxiClean range allows you to do all this and more.
Alternatively, do you need to restore some tired looking stainless steel back to its former glory? We can do that too…
Stainless steel rusts. You want to do what you can to avoid this from happening, but in certain environments, such as in swimming pools or in coastal areas this is a lot harder to prevent. Inoxiclean Restore is your solution.
In general, rust occurs because oxygen cannot get to the surface of the stainless steel meaning a new chromium layer cannot form. It is important to keep on top of this contamination and regular restoration work extends the lifespan of your stainless steel.
Flash rust is the most common type of rust found in a workshop when carbon steel and stainless steel are manufactured in the same area. This is due to small steel particles coming into contact with the stainless steel and starting to oxidise.
Mechanical rust is also common within a workshop, manufacturing stainless steel in ways such as welding, bending and cutting causes the stainless steel to become weaker at those points of contact meaning the natural preservation of the stainless steel is impeded.
Stainless steel in coastal areas, as touched upon earlier is suspectible to rusting and contamination damage. This is because the sea water contains salt and causes localised damage and pitting on stainless steel such as on boat hand rails or coastal street furniture.
Thankfully, Inoxiclean Restore offers a simple three step process to remove rust and contamination for all 3 of the above mentioned issues, ensuring your stainless steel has it’s original finish reinstated. Inoxiclean Restore is 100% biodegradable meaning that it is safe for use in food preparation areas such as industrial kitchens as well as public areas such as swimming pools.
- Begin by applying the Inoxiclean Restore to your workpiece, ensuring that all the contamination is covered and leave for 5 minutes
- Gently aggitate the surface using a non-abrasive tex pad, this allows the Restore to get to work
- Finally, use a clean, microfibre cloth to wipe away the Inoxiclean Restore and the orignal finish to your stainless steel will be renewed
Even though stainless steel is one of the tougher metals in production, Inoxiclean Restore will never be a one step solution to stop your stainless steel rusting as eventually the metal will have dirt and contamination. Inoxiclean Restore is a product to prevent rust and restore your stainless steel before it is too late. With regular maintenance and TLC, you can extend the life of your stainless steel with this simple, easy to use product.
Inoxiclean Restore leaves a protective layer on your workpiece which repels water and prevents dirt from attacking the surface, ensuring it is safer from corrosion for longer. To prolong the look of your stainless steel for longer, use Inoxiclean Spray in conjunction with the Inoxiclean Restore for routine cleaning of the workpiece.
