Deox-Gel is a viscous, highly thixotropic, rust remover, designed for corrosion removal on surfaces or objects too large to submerge in a bath of Deox-C. Along with the viscosity builders and preservatives, the active agents in Deox-Gel are harmless, non-toxic and biodegradable.
Abrasive cleaning methods such as grinding, sanding or blast-cleaning will remove sound steel surrounding corroded areas. The risk of grit inclusion resultant from blast-cleaning, has been proven to cause early coating failure, corrosion and mechanical wear, is eliminated.
Slag-based blast cleaning media all contain heavy metals which when used in open-nozzle blast-cleaning equipment give off dust that may contain harmful levels of these elements. Use of Deox-Gel will eliminate the risk of distortion to thin steel sections, which can result from the blast-cleaning process.
