WD-40 Specialist® Rust Remover Soak quickly dissolves rust and restores tools, equipment, and surfaces to bare metal without chipping, scraping or scrubbing.

This rust-removal formula has no toxic fumes, does not use acids or caustic chemicals, is non-irritating to skin,  and is safe to use on most metals.

Does not resolve rust
I poured 1/2 gallon into my 60 gallon air compressor tank because I couldn’t drain the tank. The drain on the bottom of the tank is completely rusted across the rain hole on the inside of the tank. It was not feasible to disconnect the air compressor from the electrical and plumbing and then unbolt it from the floor to tip it over due to the weight of the compressor and manually unplug the drain so I spent the 40 bucks and had Home Depot order it for me. It has been in the tank for two weeks now and the drain is completely stopped up. This stuff does not dissolve rust as advertised. Now I have 1/2 gallon of liquid in the tank that can not be drained. The compressor is useless for painting now because of the 1/2 gallon of moisture in the tank. I’m on a fixed income and can not replace this 6.5 HP 60 gallon compressor for less than $1800 dollars. Bottom line. Do not waste your money on this rust dissolver.

WD-40® Specialist® Rust Remover Soak works well to remove rust by may have different specifications for servicing air compressors where the chemical reaction of the formula may be affected by the closed environment of the tank.

It works!!
I soak my old parts on my 1971 Chevelle wagon and they come off with a lot of ease now. Parts are salvageable for use by other owners.
