Electrolysis procedure
« on: October 07, 2014, 19:53:30 »
I been shown the light for electrolysis on rust removals and I have a question to those who have done it or know it, I understand you can take rust off any steel but does it work on alloy parts to?

For people who have never heard of this here is a video link of what it is, does, and how to make one, for safety reason and to cover my backside I do not recommend this and do not advise to do it as electricity and water never mix well

Rust doesn't generally form on alloy

All metals oxidise, the difference with iron oxide is that is swells, forming a flaky, scaly rust.

I'm aware of using ionising processes to prevent it, but removing it? I'd want to see.
