Cons: i prefer a one application product.
" Whilst the product is effective, it takes a few applications plus washing off before a top protective coat can be applied. This can be more time consuming. "

Pros: easy to use, good value
" Bought because it was the only place I could reserve/buy and collect the next day but the product is great. Using on the rusty bits of a narrowboat, some of whch are quite rusty and weird angles but the product goes on nicely and seems to be doing the trick, although I gues stime will tell. Have applied more than once on some areas, but this was the same with the other products I've been using and I guess is the same with all of them. "

Pros: fast working, ease of use
" I'm in the middle of the restoration of a 1977 car which has some rust on the wings and sills. After wire brushing the area to remove the worst of rust i painted on the Hammerite Rust Remover Gel and left it for 20 minutes. I then rinsed the area and the rust was nearly completely gone. I repeated this and it left me with clean metal i could work with. "
