What is Rust Veto & Where Can You Use It?

Stored auto, metalworking, and farming equipment are just as susceptible to corrosion and oxidation as parts that are currently in use, especially if the equipment is being stored for long periods of time or shipped overseas. Maintenance is required to keep steel and iron surfaces protected in both indoor and outdoor storage conditions where high humidity, salt, fertilizers, or extreme weather can cause rusting. This is where Rust Veto can be useful in prolonging the life of your gears, lathes, firearms, or vehicle undercoating.

Rust Veto is an industrial grease or light mineral oil that leaves a protective film on metal surfaces, specifically iron and steel, and contains powerful rust inhibitors. It is necessary to lift or displace water during storage to maintain metal surfaces. The product’s coating may be translucent in order to leave identifying markings visible on equipment, or it may dry as a dark, tough coating. Rust Veto is beneficial for long-term storage, because it can protect indoor surfaces for up to three years and outdoor surfaces for roughly a year in harsher conditions.

The possible applications of Rust Veto, depending on which brand and formula is used, are wide-ranging. Various Rust Veto products can be used for steel mill equipment, railroad and transportation equipment, military weapons, outdoor farming machinery, construction machinery, and other industrial and automotive uses. Rust Veto is a worthwhile protectant that is just as easy to clean as it is to put on. Just brush or spray it on and clean it off with a petroleum solvent or emulsion cleaner if needed. It’s a simple way to lengthen shelf life and thwart damaging oxidation that can lead to compromised performance or expensive replacements.
