Rust Remover

Rust Remover & Converter

Scale-X is a strong and effective rust remover and converter for use on all types of rust removal tasks including vehicles, pipework, metalwork, tools, kitchen equipment and large industrial boilers. It is an excellent product, easy to apply, with a multitude of uses and it can save a great deal of time and effort by very often eliminating the need for sanding, scraping and grinding.

Scale-X is frequently used by customers to remove heavy or light rust in a multitude of projects and applications including renovating cars, vans, boats and most other types of vehicle. It is often the preferred choice by trade users when working on restoring classic and vintage cars, antique guns and firearms and old sporting goods such as golf clubs. It is also perfect for cleaning metal gates and fences prior to painting or coating. If you have metal patio furniture and barbeques that are beginning to show signs of rust, discolouring and ageing then treatment with Scale-X then washing away afterwards will bring them back to life again.


A popular choice with motorcyclists for cleaning and de-rusting petrol tanks on motorcycle renovation projects. It is one of the strongest formulations available at 45% phosphoric acid strength and is therefore much more effective than many other commercially available products found in hardware and motor accessory outlets. Ideal for cleaning tools and metal parts and is also very effective in removing rust stains from stone, brick and concrete floors.

How Does Scale-X Work?

Scale-X is strong, it is a specialist formulation based on phosphoric acid at a concentration of 45%. We choose phosphoric acid because although it is strong it is also safe to use on most types of metal. It works by quickly converting the brown rust (Iron Oxide) to Ferric Phosphate where after treatment it can be simply brushed or scrubbed away leaving a fresh metal surface. Once dried the surface can be painted or coated depending on the intended use. We supply this product to trade and private customers throughout the UK such as boatyards, builders, metal recyclers, vehicle renovators, etc. This product is safe to use on most metal surfaces including stainless steel and will not cause "flash rusting" when used for etching concrete. *Phosphoric Acid*


Scale-X is also an extremely effective descaler and can be used to remove heavy limescale mineral deposits from kitchen equipment, dishwashers, washing machines and kettles, which are subjected to damaging build-up, particularly in hard water areas.
