Loosens seized rusty parts

one of the best retail chemicals to break a rust bond. Repeated applications and leaving over time lets it work better. The fumes are strong and the can does not spray well upside down...Read complete review

one of the best retail chemicals to break a rust bond. Repeated applications and leaving over time lets it work better. The fumes are strong and the can does not spray well upside down in tight spaces. To spray upside down, spray right side up just beforehand.

Not that good

Was dissapointed with this product. Even after several applications and waiting periods, did very little to loosen up stuck screws/bolts.

Comments about Blaster Penetrating Catalyst:

I was introduced to PB Blaster when I started refurbishing vintage bicycles. Nothing I've used works better. Whenever I'm going to work on something that has the potential to be corroded, like the sway bar links on my SAAB, I hit it with PB Blaster every day for 3-4 days before I'm going to do the work. Always makes things easier. The only other product I'd like to try is Kroil. I hear many good things and there always seems to be a raging PB Blaster/Kroil debate going on somewhere. After this can of PB Blaster is done I'll probably try it but it's going to have to work like magic to knock off PB Blaster for me.

          Comments about Blaster Penetrating Catalyst:

          Fantastic for removing any rusty bolt. Just douse with this stuff (the bolt, not yourself), let soak and repeat until that stuck puppy breaks free. To those that do not know, this is Popeye's urine bottled up and pressurized to help you bust through the rust and get that bolt out so you can fix whatever you may be working on. Guaranteed to eat rust alive!(do not get in eyes, has same effect) Warning - not to be used on cats, product is still in testing and not intended for that purpose.
