How Does Rust Bullet Actually Work?

Simply put, it kills rust.  

Rust Bullet outperforms market leaders in extensive scientific side by side testing, repeatedly. How to get rid of rust is right in front of you. Rust has been a problem and battle to which all the planet as fought since the industrial era.

Although various prevention strategies have been discovered and developed, each had their own respective flaws and shortcomings that limited their usefulness. The team at Rust Bullet knew we had to create something that got rid of rust for good because the battle had been fought for long enough.

The products we found on the market were either very complicated to apply, required multiple steps with a highly trained workforce and ideal working conditions, or they were simple to apply but didn’t work very well or last very long.  Either you’re a professional, or you get a professional to help you, and we’re DIYers, so that didn’t really work for us.

Rust Bullet is a simple, easy to apply, rust/corrosion control product that is more effective on both clean metal and rusty metal than any other (in the field use) product on the market.

The phenomenal results achieved after years of refinement and three years of extensive scientific testing, along with two (2) United States Patents awarded by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, confirms that Rust Bullet is the best rust and corrosion control product on the market.
