Did this video help you?

kevrs2: JUST USE VINEGAR ! and the money that you save you can spend that on dancing girls :)

Dharam Singh: what happens if you leave it in there for 2 days..... any corrosion possibility?

Rusiputki: Lol the bad acting! :D There is probably somebody out there that knows the secret of MetalRescue. It's like Molasses on steroids and instead of 2 weeks it takes 2 hours. We just need the correct ingredient and time it x100 :)

Diego choy: can be useon caliper ?

P3RDIT1ON: Is Metal Rescue safe for powder coated metals? My brake rotor is part steel part powder coated.

pcfd20: @hwhhww why?

TheFallofTim: Protip: hydrochloric acid is cheaper and works faster.

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: Yes, actually, Metal Rescue™ works great on gas tanks! Visit our YouTube home page and search for the "How to Remove Rust From A Motorcycle Gas Tank" video. The video has step by step instructions on how to use Metal Rescue™ on your gas tank. Also, our website has step by step instructions on how to de-rust a motorcycle gas tank. Just Google Metal Rescue™. How big is your tank, and how rusty is it?

Steve Hardman: But mate this is much a stage event...

Tom Aspen: WOW that's the secret ingredient in coca cola don't tell anyone..coca cola will clean metal for sure..

myowntruth44: Cleaner then out of factory? Hmmm kinda impossible there but very good product.

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: @718mattmatt We do not recommend Brake Cleaner. Brake cleaner contains powerful chemicals that can be very dangerous if inhaled or ingested or if the chemical comes in contact with your eyes or skin. Metal Rescue is so safe you can get it on your hands and the solution wouldn't harm you. Metal Rescue is also easy to use, no scrubbing needed and environmentally friendly.

kit stevens: if there on your car and there rusty take the car round the block and use the breaks park up and have it a look and it will be all shiny and all rust gone

koglowa: lmao, awesome vid.

millwrightman99: Hydrochloric acid is extreme]y dangerous and the part would need to be treated with a caustic solution to stop the acid from causing more damage to your parts never mind your lungs or eyes . Rotors are dirt cheap , this stuff should be used on expensive parts like carbs . or machinery parts .

Carpe diem glxke: Why is this better than vinegar?

Syd piper: I tried it on my granny it doesnt work

Scrap-oh-laa: Spending $50 on a gallon of stuff that takes a day??? Try using muriatic acid from your local hardware store or wally world. $7-$10 a gallon, works in about 10-15 minutes. and can be reused over and over and over again despite how nasty the solution looks. 2 gallons have lasted me over a year now, I just filter the rust out and reuse again and again. Use outdoors! with thick gloves and eye pro. It's acid. It's usually used to etch concrete, but can etch lots of other things. not for aluminum!

718mattmatt: can i also use brake cleaner and scrub it off if it is only mild rust?

peanutbutterisfu: @jjenson2006 true that but its just to show it works

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: The greyness you reference is a carbon coating that is the result of leaving your rotor in the Metal Rescue longer than was necessary. The coating won’t harm the part and can typically be removed using a Scotchbrite or Brillo pad. Thanks for the question.

Guido Cueva: can i use it on my grandma?

erictold: Loctite rust dissolver is cheaper and do the same thing.

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: Hi scRUAM. You will have to soak them one at a time, but 1 gallon will do the job. Just make sure you strain the solution after every de-rusting. Visit our website and enter your zip code in the upper right hand corner to find a store near you that carrys Metal Rescue™ Rust Remover Bath it. Let us know if you have any more questions.

whorebot325: @hwhhww why would it warp? Oh wait, you're just a moron..figures. Have fun driving your ford focus loser

Rick Rivera: First, go read some books and learn that brake rotor is even more technical than brake disk. Then come and tell us what to do and what not!

Steve Hardman: white vingear would work the same

armadillo platypus: could someone find the chemical constitution/ingredients of this product and then post it on you tube then we can all make it dirt cheap

718mattmatt: @metalrescue ive touched it b4 it didnt burn me

lionieg: 25 gallons and is bad lol

san379 .: here in ottawa canada cars only last 8 to 10 yrs before rust makes them almost impossable to repair .. your prodcuct cant help..people junk there cars because the suspentions are so badly rusted they cant unbolt them or they gas tant straps rust right off and the lines rot out and rotors fill up with rust from the vents there half thickness and axles wont come out of the rotor / hub

hwhhww: now watch it warp after 20 miles of braking..

Steve Hardman: It seems your using actors in it.

scRUAM: If I need to remove rust from 4 disk brakes from midsize sedan how much do I have to buy?

chopperkid13: Vinegar does the same thing. Much cheaper to...plus you can pour it down the drain when you are done.

gbowne1: Diesel fuel is another common solvent and will mildly de rust. It's not a end all cure all for it though.

hamiltoncouple01: Looks like an excellent product

Pinups2Showboats: You can do the same thing with muratic acid, available at any harware store 5-7 bucks per gallon.

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: Hi Scrap-oh-laa, thanks for watching our video! Although acids are also used to remove rust, they are not always the best application for all de-rusting projects. Metal Rescue is safe on paint, plastics, rubber, and to the touch. It's bio-degradable and can be used indoors. You can also reuse it over and over again. Metal Rescue does not etch the metal making it your one step, safe, clean, and easy way to remove rust. It's just another tool in your workshop!

san379 .: my 94 dakota ive done the front lines for hundreds of dollars..then the back blew out.. now everything has been replaced ..this year i had to do the rotors and front pads.. shoes were fine but ive rustproofed the body again this spring

taledarkside: "here in ottawa canada cars only last 8 to 10 yrs before rust makes them almost impossable to repair " It must suck living there for that reason. I have the same issues where I live in the states, but not as bad. Brake and fuel lines go out, then everything else.

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: Hi, Steve, what do you mean by "a stage event?"

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: Hi Steve, thanks for watching our video! There are many other alternatives to removing rust including vinegar. Metal Rescue is non-acidic, and safe on paint, plastics, rubber, and paint. It's also safe to the touch. Plus you can re-use it over and over again on your rusty parts. It's also easily disposed of. Plus because Metal Rescue is odorless, you can use it indoors and your house won't smell like vinegar!

Abdul Syukur: Used it. But somehow my rotor become greyish. Dull and not as shiny. How do I restore its shine?

lionieg: can it be used in gas tanks?

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: That is a great question. Metal Rescue™ is a water based solution that doesn’t contain acid. Because vinegar contains acetic acid, it is able to break down rust, and in most applications, it will require scrubbing. With Metal Rescue™, we do all the work for you, meaning that there isn’t any scrubbing or messy clean up after you soak your rusty part in the solution. Please stay tuned to our YouTube channel for a product comparison of Metal Rescue™ vs. house hold remedies such as vinegar.

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: Good to hear you are going to use for your water pump housing! Please let us know if you have any questions!

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: You will find that most car enthusiasts, auto stores, and mechanics use the word brake rotor(s) when describing this part. As far as this application is concerned, if you read the explanation and watch the video of how the part looked like before we de-rusted it, it had a heavy amount of surface rust not a light surface rust as you described, applying the brakes to heavily rusted rotors would NOT remove the rust instantly. Made in USA won't harm bearings or remove the grease in bearings.

Metal Rescue™ from the Workshop Hero™: Hi san379. It sounds like you have a real rust issue in Canada. We know what it's like to have harsh winters and salty roads here in Michigan. Although Metal Rescue may not be the right application for your entire vehicle, it does however work great on parts that you can soak during restorations. It especially works great on parts that have hard to reach areas like gas tanks. Thanks for watching our video, let us know if you have any questions.

madmatt1: @chopperkid13 yes, but i have had it eat rotors. example, 92 volvo 240, front rotors were fine, but you could scrape the back ones apart with your finger nail. maybe i just left them in too long.
