    Default EvapoRust vs Rust-Oleum Rust Disolver

    here is a demonstration of two products

    this photo illustrates the EvapoRust product being somewhat equal to Rust-Oleum Rust Disolver **IF** you are able to submerge your item in the liquid.

    EvapoRust took approx 8 times longer to achieve what Rust-Oleum did in 20 minutes

    For speed, Rust-Oleum for the win

    the Rust-Oleum test nail had more shadow on it for the sake of the picture. both products did the job well.

    This was what i wanted to really know.
    By dipping the test part 4 times in 30 minutes by simply dropping it in the fuid and taking it back out... this is what i found interesting.

    EvapoRust depends on your item being submerged because there is little if any evidence of rust being removed.

    Rust-Oleum Rust Disolver clearly has continued to disolve rust while the item is out of the solution bath.

    The reason i wanted to know this is because using this product to slosh around inside a gas tank to get rid of rust. I really need to know which one would continue to perform while my item was simply coated only with a rust treatment product.

    Rust-Oleum wins here.

    Good info on the Rust-Oleum product, thanks. I've been using EvaporRust and have also found out it works best when the item is submersed in it.

    On very light surface rust, I found if you use EvapoRust in a spray bottle with a little liquid soap, and keep spraying and brushing, it works OK but not very fast.

    Will definitely try the Rust-Oleum.

    another off the cuff experiement i did.

    I had 2 gal of EvapoRust in a tank, with nuts and bolts with the tank strapped to a vertical rotating device (metal garden hose reel) so it could be rotated and agitated by the hardware inside.

    i was not satisfied with the outcome. Since the EvapoRust is not an acid and the Rust-Oleum is an acid, i poured in the Rust-Oleum and repeated the agitation process.

    i found out that everything about the expected action of the two agents simply stopped any signs of working at all. Mixing them results in wasted money.

    does anyone one know what the green stuff is that is a byproduct of using Evapo-Rust?
    What the hell washes that lime green stuff off?
    Ive tried MEK, Acetone, Carb Cleaner ect,, nothing removes the lime green deposit.
