It works.

It also creates all the collateral damage that Mr C mentioned above.

When customers worry about the "dangerous chemicals" you use, you can rightly point out that there are more frightening products that she can buy at the grocery/hardware store than cleaners routinely use.

This is such a product.

Butler has a rust remover that is much safer for techs and customers. We use it for the safety factor but it is not as potent as Wink and much costlier.

Fab Pro used to have one as well I liked. Maybe they still do. It was a gel.

And , when I got MSDS from butler for a few things , They were Fabpro provided! Hmmmm


I still have eristicator on the shelf in back. 3 or 4. I got into them not long ago cause I wanted some amonia, which is the neutralizer. It was no longer any good.

Yes you are an idiot. I got some on my fingers once. Lost both fingernails and had my fingers opened to the bone to drain and inject calcium to neutralize. There's much safer alternatives like ultrachem clean. Take a look back and read my post and see my pics with clean blasting rust. It doesn't work every time but it beats the crap out of risking your health and your customers health.
Yea indèed that's an idiot chemical.

I tried the ultrachem clean a couple of times and it seems to work fine on some and not so good on others. Not sure why. I'll keep trying as I go along. I keep a 16 ounce bottle in my spotting kit. Works on many other spots and stains as well. I use t-rust on more serious rust stains.

umm, Willy, we're s'posed to be a professionals
That means we're s'posed to be knowledgeable and responsible with the chems used and take precautions with such

if you poured it on the rust, and worked it in with your fingers..
or spilled some on your fingers without immediately washing it off..
I'm sorry part'ner , the directions for use and cautions are clearly printed on the label.
it's not the chem's fault for not being IDIOT proof .

Mix any bleach and ammonia much??
