CUSTOM: Spotless_Stainless


Spotless Stainless is the simplest and most effective way to remove rust and the "surface iron" that causes rust from Stainless Steel.

Spotless Stainless is not a polish and is not abrasive. You brush it on - allows you to reach into tight places adheres to vertical surfaces. No Rubbing, No Scrubbing, No Polishing! Brush on, wait up to 30 minutes, rinse and enjoy steel that sparkles!

How it Works

Spotless Stainless is different! You spend less time, less effort removing rust from Stainless Steel. Spotless Stainless is a revolutionary new product that removes rust - the revolution - Spotless Stainless not only removes rust but also removes the "surface iron" that causes rust and enables a rich Oxide layer to protect Stainless Steel.

The protective oxide layer can be damaged by exposing it to materials (tools), chlorides (salts), bleach, and other harsh chemicals. The marine environment is especially harsh on Stainless Steel. In addition, abrasives such as polishes may damage the protective layer on Stainless Steel. Damage to the protective layer exposes the iron in the steel to the atmosphere which reacts with oxygen to form rust. By removing the rust and "surface iron" Spotless Stainless enables the stainless to protect itself and will extend the time between cleaning and extend the life of your Stainless Steel.

Many rust removal products use concentrations of strong acids that may remove the rust from Stainless Steel, but in most cases leaves the surface to rust again. By not removing the "surface iron" rust will return quickly and you may have more rust than before. If the acids are highly concentrated they may damage Stainless Steel by exposing more iron or attacking other elements in Stainless Steel.

Spotless Stainless does not use caustic chemicals that are dangerous and toxic to the environment. Spotless Stainless uses a chemical formulation that is generally regarded as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. Spotless Stainless, Rust Remover and Protector works best when temperatures are greater than 21°C (70°F). The time needed for removing rust and "surface iron" is related to the temperature. Warmer temperatures will yield better results in less time.

Spotless Stainless, Stainless Steel Rust Remover and Protector is the first environmentally friendly product available to the marine industry that restores Stainless Steel's protective layer and will make your Stainless Steel SPARKLE!

Suffering from Corrosion?

Auto Corrosion is the corrosion of a so-called pure metal such as bronze, brass, aluminum, etc. It can also be observed on the surfaces of "stainless steel".

In theory, a pure metal does not corrode. If you had a 100% pure bronze propeller for example, it would be safe of corrosion unless it came in direct contact with another metal.

However, in reality, no metal is pure; there are always impurities abound. Your bronze prop could also contain plenty of iron, especially if you bought a cheap one!

When this "impure" mixture is exposed to the elements, the result is Auto Corrosion.

So what's happening? On a molecular level, on the surface of an unpure metal, two dissimilar metals are in direct contact. Due to their inherent properties, one of these metals is less corrosion-resistant than the other; this metal will be the one that will be suspectible to corrosion.

However, corrosion will only take place after the introduction of an electrolyte; a substance which is electrically conductive - such as seawater or even freshwater (essentially any liquid that contains salts, acids or bases). By adding an electrolyte to these two dissimilar metals, suddenly electrons start flowing from one metal to the other. In other words, you've built a tiny battery!

Unfortunately, the resulting electrical current of your new "battery" will cause one metal to start breaking down, specifically the less-resistant metal. This disintegration is observed as rust.

Rust Removal and Metal Protection

Let's not even consider coating your ship's bell with rust paint!

There are two ways of dealing with auto corrosion; either strip it off or passivate it.

  • Various metal cleaners will clean and wax many types of metal. This is the cost effective way of dealing with most rust issues on decorative metal. It's not a particularly long term solution nor will it address structural issues. However for bells, ornaments, lamps and other non-integral metal, it can be a rewarding job to renew your bronze with a good cleaner/wax!
  • For stainless hardware, consider re-passivation. This method implies that you will use a phosphoric acid to convert the rust/oxidation into a layer of hard, non-reactive, oxidized material which is less vulnerable to future corrosion.
  • Consider a cleaner that will also strip away the contaminants on the metal's surface. Iron is a big culprit of auto corrosion, so you may wish to find a cleaner which removes this iron
