Environmentally Friendly Bull Frog®
In Rust Remover Gel
For years, the normal method of removing
rust has been harmful to both the user and the environment. Bull
Frog® Rust Remover comes in a ready-to-use gel that is simple
to apply, safer for the user and easier on the environment. With
Bull Frog® Gel after the rust is gone, it puts on a protective
molecular umbrella to stop new rust formation.
Conventional rust removers can easily
damage sensitive metal surfaces by aggressive chemical attack. Worse
yet, rust can return almost as quickly as it was removed, allowing
new corrosion and rust build-up to further destroy the metal surface.
Unlike other rust removers, Bull Frog® Gel contains VpCI®s
(Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor). They bond electrochemically
with the metal surface to seal out air and moisture that quickly
cause new rust. For the first time, the same patented technology
that is proven effective for a wide variety of items from military
jets to electronics on naval vessels to the Alaskan and Siberian
Pipeline can be used for many household items such as toys, tools,
hardware, fences, bicycles, machinery, lawn and garden equipment.
As an innovative, "green chemistry"
formulation, Bull Frog® Rust Remover is organic, completely
biodegradable, and non-toxic. It has been specially designed as
a low environmental impact product that is "Safer For The Pond
We Live In." The product is water-based, does not have any
high VOCs and is non-flammable. Its low impact formulation is better
for people as well. During use, it does not permeate the air with
harsh chemical vapors that can overpower the user to set-off coughing
and breathing difficulties.
Bull Frog® Rust Remover is easy
to use. Simply apply the gel to the metal surface. Its gel consistency
makes it effective for both horizontal and vertical surfaces like
fences, tools or equipment housings. After application, the gel
stays where put and does not run off flat surfaces or slide down
vertical surfaces. Allow the product to penetrate the rusty surface
for 15 minutes, then rise with water. The gel can be reapplied as
necessary. (For heavy rust, allow the gel to work on rust for 1
to 2 hours before rinsing.) Because of its more mild, low-impact
nature, the rust remover doesn't harm existing paint or damage metal
surfaces. Unless metal has severe corrosion, the gel doesn't harm
electrical, mechanical or chemical performance.
Bull Frog® Rust Remover is available
in 16 oz gel applicators. Its handy size makes it convenient to
remove rust from one or two small items or to work on larger projects.
