Rust Bullet - Rust Remover
the result of the reaction of iron objects with oxygen in the presence
of water or moisture. This oxidation process results in the formation of
a mixture of compounds, iron oxide and hydroxides.
process of rusting involves three steps and energy is released during the
process. The first stage involves the formation of iron ions from the metal
while in the second step, hydroxide ions are formed. The third step involves
the reaction of the two in the presence of oxygen, which creates rust.
The electrochemical process starts when the iron metal comes in contact
with water; it is oxidized to iron (II)
? Fe2+ + 2e-
released electrons travel to the edge of the water droplet, which has a
higher concentration of oxygen this starts the reaction. This leads to
the reduction reaction involving oxygen and water molecules and results
in hydroxide ions
e- + O2 + 2H2O ? 4OH-
hydroxide ions now react with the iron (II) ions and oxygen which forms
+ 2OH- ? Fe (OH)2
4Fe (OH)2 + O2 ? 2(Fe2O3.xH2O) + 2H2O
or ferric oxide (Fe2o3) is formed by the dehydration of ferrous hydroxide.
The rusting process or corrosion occurs at a faster rate in sea water than
in fresh water because the concentration of sodium chloride ions is much
higher in sea water. The process of rusting is inhibited by alkali solutions
while it is accelerated by acidic solutions.
prevention and rust remover products help to take care of the rust problem
effectively. Many Rust Remover products such as Rustoleum, Wasser and POR
15 provide short term relief from the ‘rust’ problem. Rust
Bullet is a product that offers a long term solution and requires
low maintenance with the least amount of surface preparation.
