Frequently Asked Questions

HinderRUST is a one-of-a-kind solvent-free rust stopper and lubricant that uses a proprietary PTFE technology to protect metals. Corrosion is annually a billion dollar problem and HinderRUST‘s engineered approach to surface film management protects surfaces against oxygen and moisture. Key to its success is the HinderRUST‘s ability to spread and wick into otherwise unreachable areas, thereby making it perfect for wire ropes and cables and hard-to-reach areas on equipment and machinery.

According to Wikipedia, rust is stated as this,

“Rust is a general term for describing iron oxides. In colloquial usage, the term is applied to red oxides, formed by the reaction of iron and oxygen in the presence of water or air moisture. There are also other forms of rust, such as the result of the reaction of iron and chloride in an environment deprived of oxygen, such as rebar used in underwater concrete pillars, which generates green rust. Several forms of rust are distinguishable visually and by spectroscopy, and form under different circumstances.[1] Rust consists of hydrated iron(III) oxides Fe2O3·nH2O and iron(III) oxide-hydroxideFeO(OH)·Fe(OH)3”

According to NACE, formerly known as the National Association of Corrosion Engineers, rust causes billions of dollars in damages each year. Not only is it unsightly, untreated corrosion weakens metals and causes permanent damage.

That’s a great question. HinderRUST has several advantages over other rust stoppers on the market. For one thing, HinderRUST uses no solvents. That means it doesn’t evaporate away like many other rust inhibiting products. For another, HinderRUST is engineered to create a barrier between surfaces and outside elements such as salt, moisture, and oxygen. Those two things make HinderRUST extremely good at providing protection from corrosion in all conditions, even in coastal areas.

Yes! Not only does HinderRUST prevent rust from forming or spreading, its lubricating properties help free up areas prone to freezing or jamming. Use HinderRUST on gears, wiring, nuts, bolts, and just about any place else to can think of to prevent maintenance issues resulting from rust. We like to say “HinderRUST Keeps the World Moving.”
