The way I understand it is there are three types of rust products on the market.  what I am curious is when do you use what type?

POR - stands for Paint Over Rust... - this particular product is used when you cannot get to a rusted part or piece.  Like flooring or other metal pieces that the rust is basically what I've always called surface rust.

second type is a liquid and is sold in gallon containers.  You use it to poor the liquid  into a large container.  Carefully set the metal piece in that you wish to remove the rust from.  When the liquid discolors and turns dark, you remove the metal from the liquid and rinse the metal piece.

I would guess electrolytic cleaning may be the third type you are thinking of.  Basically uses either electrolytic process that uses electricity to do changes to the metal at the molecular level.  Chroming or Bronzing metal is one way to think of it.

Shawnwat,

I resently restored a severely rusted out set of 1970 Chevelle seats.  I was worried about sandblasting the sliders so I bought a wall paper plastic trough, very cheap, around $5.00 then I bought "Sunnyside Rust Remover Bath" from Menards.  I soaked the sliders for 1 full day pulled themout and hosed them down to clean away all of the leftover remover and it worked perfectly.  I was so impressed with this product I went and bought another gallon, which by the way it was about $20.  I keep it around since it is safe to use around kids and animals.  In fact you get it on your hands with no problems.  Normally I sandblast but because the sliders have bearings inside I thought this would be the best method.  It all depends on what you are cleaning.  Also it will not attack plastic so you can soak almost anything in it.

Another method I found on you tube a method by electrolysis. Make up a solution of water and Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda, a plastic tub, an old piece of metal that will attract rust and a battery charger.  Here is the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ka6ArN_ehas

I just didn't feel comfortable leaving my charger hooked up all night so I went with the rust remover bath instead.  Well, good luck.

Take care!

I prefer a ultrasonic method of parts cleaning which can remove some rust However I use EvapoRust, Metal Rescue and WD-40s rust dissolver product all with great success but some need a little precleaning which would remove dirt's dust oils and greases.

There is a spray on called "rust reformer" that is used by my neighbor that is a mechanic for a highway department here in CT. They do not use rust inhibitors in their sand/salt mixture so these trucks take a beating. He also told me for frames he has had better results with semi-gloss rust-oleum and the rust reformer than he has with the p.o.r. I followed his advise and have done my frame in rust-oleum. after all he does work on sand trucks. My truck won't ever see that kind of abuse

I used the rust reformer spray paint when I redid my Chevelle bucket seats. I did Sandblast them clean them off and wipe them down with dirt and grease remover and sprayed the Black Rust reformer on them so that they would not rust. I have used the rust reformer products for years with great success. Don't hesitate to use it it's a fantastic product and now that you can spray it on and it comes out in Flat black and it's a beautiful way to go to paint something guarantee it'll never rust again. Unless you want to use por-15 which is much more expensive. Good luck. Take care!
