The surface should be cleaned from oil, dust and old paint etc. Knocking off any loose rust will speed the process up.
Fertan Rust Remover can be used with any clean water. Using water between 120-140 degrees F will really kick start the reaction, but it is not necessary to get the reaction going. It will merely speed it up.
The recommended ratio is 1 part Fertan Rust Remover per 10 parts water. For a faster de-rusting process this ratio can be decreased to as low as 1 part water to 1 part Fertan Rust Remover.
Depending on the amount of rust and dilution ratio, the de-rusting process can take as little as 10 minutes up to 48 hours. In most instances it is a 2-3 hour process.
You can save the mixture to be used at a later time. It is recommended that you filter or strain the mixture through a membrane (coffee filters work well) to remove any sediment. It is recommended that you store this mixture in an air tight plastic container such as an old milk jug or plastic soda bottle. DO NOT store in a metal container. If a deceleration is noticed on re-use you can add more Fertan Rust Remover to the mixture to enhance the mixtures potency.
