    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:

    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.

              Much better than WD-40 for getting things loose. Great value. Only product better is Aero-Kroil, but that's 4 times the cost.

                It is best to spray and let the product work its way into the rust. I had a wheel bearing that wouldn't separate from the hub. I sprayed it really good and let it sit for a few hours. The two pieces came right apart

                    In it's price range, this is the best product I have found for getting rusted parts loose. With a lot of patience and this product I have accomplished many repairs, which at first appeared hopeless.

                          Awesome stuff. Spray this on bolts on a catalytic converter. Let sit for couple hours. Bolts came off without a problem and bolts were rusty. This is good stuff just give it some time to sit before trying to remove rusty bolts.
