OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Zerust 620-RR is a pH neutral dip that removes rust, even in crevices, pits, and threads. It replaces labor-intensive abrasive cleaning that damages surfaces. The product works by breaking the chemical bond of rust and does not harm any other metals and non-metals. Surface may be darkened with carbon residue after cleaning. Cleaned parts must by protected to prevent flash rusting.
