Rust Removal in Royston

How to Remove Rust from a Car

There are three ways of dealing with rust on a car with all methods having their own drawbacks and advantages.

If your car has a large build-up of rust, it is not the end of the world as it can be removed using specialist materials and equipment.

You can try to remove rust using chemicals bought in a shop, however you will need to follow the instructions properly and be careful when applying the substance as it can be dangerous to touch. We would recommend finding a professional to carry out the work as they will be able to understand which way of removing the rust from your car will be the most effective.

Mechanical Removal

Removing rust mechanically will can involve the use of grinders, wire brushers, sandpaper and sand blasters.

By using mechanical methods to remove rust means that the rust will be blasted away from the surface of the metal.

Depending on the extent of the rust, different methods of mechanical removal will be used.

Minor rust damage can be removed by using sandpaper that you will be able to buy from any DIY shop. The type of sandpaper is important as you do not want to damage the underlying metal so make sure to find out which is the appropriate grain.

If there is a heavy build-up of rust, a stronger approach is required.

Sandblasting involves shooting large amounts of sand against the rust which brakes it down into fine particles and off the metal surface.

It’s a highly effective method for removing rust from your car however only a trained professional with the right tools should carry out the work, this is because the sand could damage the underlying metal permanently.

Specialist Rust Paints

There are several paints on the market which claim to be able to stop the onset of rust completely. The effectiveness of these paints will vary depending on the extent of the rust damage and quality of the product.

Rust paints are extremely flammable and so should be handled with extreme care. The pot that the paint comes in will carry specific instructions so follow these exactly in order to remove the rust.

Acidic rust removal

Acidic rust removal products can also be easily bought and applied however we would once more like to recommend using a professional to carry out the work.

By applying the acid to the rusted area, the liquid attacks the rust itself and burns it away.

Once more, it is essential that you follow the instructions on the container as the acid is extremely strong and if it is left on the surface of your car, it will continue to burn into the metal of your car once the rust is gone.

You’ll also need specialist breathing equipment if you are going to be carrying out the work as the fumes that are emitted from the acid are dangerous to inhale.

These are the best methods for removing rust from your car and you would be surprised just how effective they can be if performed properly.

However, its vital that you understand what type of damage you actually have in order to apply the correct fix.

If there is any doubt in your mind, the last thing you should do is try to remove rust as you will inevitably cause more damage!
