Looking for an easy and inexpensive way to clean and protect the stainless steel hardware on your boat? We have the solution!
CitriSurf 77 Plus is a high quality blend of chemicals formulated for cleaning, rust removal and passivation of stainless steel products. It is provided in trigger sprayer bottles for applications where it is desired to spray the product on a local area. CitriSurf 77 Plus is specifically designed to provide a portable, low cost and efficient removal of contaminants and all rust and free iron from the surface of stainless steel, providing the highest chrome oxide levels possible for protection.
We have been testing this product for the better part of 4 years now and seen some pretty incredible results when cleaning and treating stainless steel parts on sport-fish boats that have weathered from exposure to saltwater and the harsh marine environment. Don't believe us, see some of the pictures for your self. Simply applying it and wiping it off with a rag with minimal effort has yielded some pretty noticeable results!
The parts or areas to be cleaned and passivated should be sprayed, immersed or wiped with CitriSurf 77 Plus to completely wet the surfaces, especially in crevices or in areas where any rust or corrosion may have occurred. The surface must be soaked or left moist with the CitriSurf 77 Plus solution for a period sufficient to remove all corrosion, free iron and contaminants from the surface. This is typically 15-30 minutes at room temperature, depending on the grade of stainless steel, hardness, and the condition of the surface. This should be determined by testing with your product. Coverage is approximately 90 square feet per 22 oz. bottle. If heavy rust needs to be removed, non-abrasive Scotch Brite™ or similar may be used halfway through the treatment. Difficult rust or corrosion must be tested to determine the exact best conditions for removal.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry completely in air immediately. Drying can be accelerated by use of a hot air blower (i.e. hair dryer), clean cloth, or other drying medium to attain a highly passive surface. Repeat process if needed to obtain desired results.
