Smile Metal Rescue rust remover

I just googled rust cleaners and found this stuff. I`ve never heard of it before, but thought there might be some interest here on the forum.

Some of these do work to an extent. Most when tested in a laboratory situation perfrom in a less than satisfactory manner. I worked at Wright-Patterson Labs in the AF Corrosion Technology Intergration Office and we tested some products like these. For a quick and dirty derusting they do work. We didn't let these be used on aircraft or weapons systems because they can cause hydrogen embrittlement or/and didn't always work the way they were advertised. When you tell someone to use a cleaner on a multimillion dollar aircraft or weapon that has lots of lifes riding in it the product needs to be as safe as possible. For every day use if it cheap try it if it works you won.
Just because the product says used by the "military or Air Force" it doesn't mean the product works or is authorized by tech data. Numerous times Joe salesman walks into a shop and says " here try this it will turn lead into gold, clean up the rust, and make that airplane corrosion proff for 100 years." The salesman then goes to the local airport and says"hell they are using this at base X on the 100 million dollar airplanes it'll surely work on your Cessna." Same thing to the motorcycle shop, the machine shop, and wherever he goes. Not a lie but not quite the complete story. If someone is stating that the military uses a product it will probably have a mil spec rating and even at that all the milspec guarantees is that it meets some required testing parameters.

Thanks rckmtn. I just sent them an email requesting a sample to try on the rusted clamps on the back of my heat shields, and some rust pitting on the back of the same. If they send me some, I will test it and report resuts back here.

I`m going to start another thread to find out what others may have done, or used to slow or stop rusting on these heat shield clamps.
