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.
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
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. Use of Deox-Gel will eliminate the risk of distortion to thin steel sections, which can result from the blast-cleaning process.
"Bilt-Hamber's Deox-Gel is just the job. Simply ladle the gooey
almost apple-sauce like compound onto the effected area and ensure there
is always a thickness of at least 3mm present.
...after between 12 and 48 hours simply wash the remnants of the gel away with water and a stiff bristled brush to be left with perfectly clean steel."
