Battle Rust Caused by Superstorms the Environmental Way

As Hurricane Harvey and Irma subside and the recovery begins it will soon become apparent that machinery and equipment that came in contact with salt water will not only need repair but cleaning. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy it was pointed out that saltwater intrusion does have a significant effect. “Manufacturers can have a prolonged recovery if equipment has been damaged — water, especially if it is salt water, can destroy machinery or leave it covered in rust. Madelaine Chocolates, located near the ocean in New York City’s Rockaway section, was shut for 10 months after Superstorm Sandy in 2012. When the company reopened, it was able to resume only partial production while more repairs were being done on its equipment.”

What is Zen Earth Rust and Corrosion Converter?

Zen Earth Rust and Corrosion Converter is a breakthrough in the removal of unwanted rust, eliminating rust from iron and steel without harmful fumes. It converts rust into harmless chemical compounds and deposits a protective layer onto the surface to prevent rust from recurring.


One of the many challenges facing industries today is how to safely and effectively remove rust, while preventing it from recurring. Rust can cause a variety of problems, for example on a bridge structure, it can cause brittleness, thus endangering the safety of users and shortening the useful life of the structure. Rust weakens metal by reducing its mass and over time, the component may no longer be able to support the weight it once held. Rust has a significant effect on the lifespan of products, as they will need to be repaired or replaced if the rust becomes too damaging.

While old methodologies for rust removal may have worked in the past, they do not stand up to today’s requirements for competitive pricing, adherence to safe work procedures, and environmental impact standards. That’s why you need a product that is not only effective in removing rust, but saves time and money, while remaining safe for the workers and the environment.

How Does Zen Earth Rust and Corrosion Converter Work? Rust is formed by the chemical reaction of iron and oxygen in the presence of water or moisture. Given sufficient time, oxygen, and water, any iron structure will eventually convert entirely to rust and disintegrate. Zen Earth Rust and Corrosion Converter begins working immediately to transform rust into a gray/black iron phosphate, which interrupts the rusting process. When the rust is gone, the chemical transformation has occurred, and the surface is prepared for a protective coating, such as a primer or paint. Zen Earth Rust and Corrosion Converter is compatible with many surfaces and will not harm most glass, hoses, decals, plastic, rubber or vinyl and paints. It is effective for use on most painted surfaces for removal of surface rust.

Because our product does not use harsh chemicals, it is safe enough to use on your favorite classic car, yet strong enough to be effective on piping and equipment in a plant. Our product works well, and is safe and easy to use.

The active ingredients behind all Zen Earth cleaning, solvent and lubricating products are combinations of various readily biodegradable plants and naturally occurring minerals. Zen Earth’s proprietary, renewable, chemical/ mechanical process creates a truly unique product that is safe for human use and for the environment, and is effective and versatile.

All Zen Earth active ingredient formulas are effective because of the creation of electrically charged particles known as micelle. When activated in water, micelles repel each other in a continuous random movement. Measuring only 2 – 4 nanometers in size, their extreme surface-area-to-volume ratio enables far greater effectiveness than conventional technologies or formulas. When introduced into another material or the environment, micelles do not produce a chemical reaction that generates new compounds. Instead, they break down carbon based molecules into smaller particles that can be easily absorbed by normal soil or water microorganisms.

Benefits of using Zen Earth Rust and Corrosion Converter include:

  • High potency formula that can be used indoors
  • Converts rust without smoke or hazardous fumes
  • Prepares metal surface for paint and increases lifespan of subsequently applied paint
  • Compatible with most vehicle paints, decals, wiring and hoses
  • Safe to wash into waste systems or marine environment


The solution is evident. Not only is Zen Earth Rust and Corrosion Converter cost competitive option, it is highly effective and by far, the safest alternative for the population and the environment. It is fast and easy to apply, and there is no need for expensive equipment involved in the rust removal effort, keeping the overall costs to a minimum.
