Renaissance Metal De-Corroder is a museum-grade metal preservation tool you can use to remove rust spotting & pitting on stainless steels.
Treatment selectively 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 has no structural effect on sound metal, thus giving the conservator control over the restoration process.
NOTE: Exposure may permanently darken the surface of carbon and non-stainless steels. Apply to a nondescript test area before use on visible portions of the blade.
The totally benign nature of the product eliminates work and health hazards associated with common de-rusting systems such as those based on phosphoric and hydrochloric acids. Gloves, masks or protective clothing are not required; normal ventilation and common-sense hygiene procedures should be observed.
