ZERUST® AxxaClean™ 3048 is a fast-acting rust and tarnish remover. It rapidly removes medium to heavy corrosion, even in cracks and crevices. Cleaned surfaces are free of black-carbon residue and resistant to flash corrosion.
ZERUST® AxxaClean™ 3048 industrial rust remover cleans ferrous metals, brass, copper, and various alloys of rust and tarnish. AxxaClean™ 3048 is available in two formulas; immersion and a brush-on gel. Surfaces properly cleaned with ZERUST® AxxaClean™ 3048 are protected from flash-rust or re-tarnishing for several days in a controlled environment. In addition, cleaned and dried items can be immediately painted or welded.
For optimum results, after cleaning with AxxaClean™ 3048, rinse with a solution of AxxaVis™ PX-05AN acid neutralizer and dry thoroughly with filtered compressed air. For corrosion-prone metals such as cast iron, use a ZERUST Axxanol™ or Axxatec™ rust preventative coating or VCI packaging product. AxxaClean™ 3048 industrial rust remover has a pH between 0.5 and 1.5. The product may attack paints, zinc, and galvanized coatings. Test product before use. Use ZERUST® Axxaclean™ 2048 if a less acidic product is needed.
ZERUST®/EXCOR® AxxaClean™ 3048 is sold as a ready-to-use liquid product.
