Rust remover Bilt Hamber Deox-Gel 1 kg

Availability: In stock


Quick Overview

Rust removal gel for corrosion protection and removal.



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. 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. The use of deox-gel will eliminate the risk of distortion to thin steel sections, which can result from the blast-cleaning process.

  • Thick gel clings to vertical surfaces.
  • Non-toxic, and safe to use.
  • Doesn't require constant attention - frees-up valuable man-hours.
  • Harmless non-toxic and biodegradable.
  • Produces clean bare-metal finish.
  • Does not destroy or distort delicate steel.
  • Harmless to glass, plastics, aluminium and chrome.
  • Eliminates grit embedment - a recognised problem with blast cleaning that can cause premature coating failure.


  1. The area to be treated should be wire-brushed or abraded with abrasive paper or wire wool. Shifting surface corrosion in this fashion speeds the process, allowing deox-gel to penetrate pits and remove corrosion that the abrasive methods cannot.
  2. Thoroughly degrease using mineral spirits (white spirit) or other solvent.
  3. Wash area with hot soapy water and wipe dry.
  4. Apply a thick EVEN coat (up to 4 mm-heavier rust = thicker coat) of deox-gel, with brush, trowel or spatula and leave for 30 - 120 + minutes. Heavy/medium rust will take longer up to 12-48 hrs please follow the additional instructions below.
  5. Vigorously wire-brush or preferably use an abrasive pad to agitate the area while gel is in situ. If treating chrome-plated surfaces use a stiff-bristled plastic brush or toothbrush.
  6. Wash with clean water and scrub well with plastic bristled brush - ensure surface is completely free of gel residue.
  7. If corrosion remains repeat from steps 3 onwards.
Heavy rust removal

If leaving deox-gel for long periods of up to 12-48 hours for removing heavy corrosion then covering the applied gel with cling-film, or similar will prevent drying allowing the gel to remain active and easy to wash away even after 48 hrs. Do not disturb the gel during this time. After the treatment period remove gel and scrub the surface with a stiff-bristled brush and plenty of water – if corrosion remains repeat. PLEASE NOTE that immediately after removal of the gel the surface may still look in a corroded/rusted state – the scrubbing/water rinsing process frees the lifted oxides and is an essential stage. Two applications are normally sufficient for even the heaviest corrosion. Dry site with paper towel, compressed air, or hot air gun and paint immediately.

After treatment

Derusted items should be treated immediately with atom-mac if long term protection cannot be applied immediately. Surfaces should be painted as soon as possible. Bilt- Hamber electrox is an ideal first coat to be applied to a deox-gel treated surface.
