    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.

          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.
