The Loctite Corporation produces a family of rust removal, treatment and prevention products. Whether dissolving rust from an antique car, sealing a stair railing for painting or keeping hinges free of rust, Loctite has a product formulated for the task.
Loctite Corporation, headquartered in Connecticut, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of German manufacturer, Heinkel KGaA. Founded in 1953, Loctite has more than 5,000 patents for adhesives and surface treatments. In 1985, Loctite introduced Loctite Naval Jelly Rust Dissolver, the first product in the rust treatment series.
The first category of Loctite surface treatments is the rust remover. The Naval Jelly Rust Dissolver removes rust from iron and steel. This dissolver is suitable for use on cars, grills, railings, lawn furniture and outdoor equipment. It is not suitable for use on chrome, aluminium, fibreglass, concrete or plastic. Naval Jelly can be brushed or sprayed onto surfaces.
The second type of Loctite surface treatment is the rust neutraliser. Loctite Extend Rust Neutralizer stops the progression of rust by sealing it with a neutral black coating that can be painted. Recommended for use on iron and steel surfaces to be painted. Rust Neutralizer is not suitable for application in direct sunlight, high humidity or pure oxygen environments. Loctite Extend Rust Neutralizer comes in jelly form and spray.
Loctite also has two speciality products in the surface treatment series. Aluminium Jelly removes and neutralises oxidation from aluminium surfaces. Loctite Silicone Spray Lubricant is intended to lubricate and prevent rust on latches, hinges and other moving parts.
