AxxaClean™ 2048 has a pH of about 2.5, similar to a soda drink, making it simple to use and minimizing disposal hassles.

    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-Maxx™, Axxanol™ or Axxatec™ liquid coating.
