Rust is a reddish-brown oxide created via a combination iron and oxygen through the presence of water or air moisture as a catalyst. 

Rustbuster by Ranex affords a genuine solution for the ones seeking to combat this rusting dilemma. 

The PaintAccess experts would like to highlight the best ways by which you can use Ranex Rustbuster, we also aim to answer all your questions about the common rusting dilemmas.

The Impact of Rust

Over time, moisture and oxygen expose iron or its alloys, such as steel, to rust, which is scientifically known as iron oxide. 

By deteriorating the metal, this chemical reaction weakens its structure and affects its appearance. 

Unless addressed promptly, rust leads to costly repairs or replacements of structures, vehicles, tools, and various metal objects.

What Causes Rust to Form?

The rust process involves three stages:

  1. Oxidation - Iron forms iron oxide when it reacts with oxygen in the presence of water.
  2. Hydration - The reaction of iron oxide with water makes hydrated iron (III) oxide, a form of rust.
  3. Formation - As rust forms, it creates pores that allow moisture and oxygen to penetrate more quickly.

The impact of rust

Rust causes structural damage by eating away metal, causing holes and weakening the structure. 

It is extremely dangerous on bridges, in buildings, and on vehicles.

A rusted object appears old and neglected, tarnishing its appearance.

Ranex Rustbuster Drying Time?

Ranex Rustbuster can dry faster or slower depending on the environment and the thickness of the application. 

It usually takes around 24 hours for Ranex to dry completely.

The drying process can be sped up or slowed down depending on the temperature.

As moisture in the air slows down the evaporation process, high humidity can extend the drying time.

*Pro Tip*

Open windows or use a fan if possible to improve airflow, so that the drying time can speed up.

If you want Ranex Rustbuster to dry properly, do not apply it in damp or humid conditions. 

Always Remember!

Don’t rush!  

As incomplete drying process affects the effectiveness of the treatment and the adhesion of any subsequent coatings, such as primer or paint.

Is it safe to use Ranex Rustbuster on aluminium?

On steel and iron, Ranex Rustbuster is highly effective, but aluminium requires caution.

An aluminium oxide layer forms instead, which appears similar to rust. 

Due to Ranex Rustbuster's design, it is only effective against iron oxide (rust).


  1. We recommend testing Ranex Rustbuster on an inconspicuous spot before you use it on a large area of aluminium.
  2. In order to reduce the strength of Ranex, consider diluting it with water before using it on aluminium.
  3. Be prepared to rinse the application quickly if you notice any negative effects.
