Product Showcase: Hyde's Serum Rustopper - Anti Rust solution for your wheel and braking systems.



How many times have you wondered....how can I stop rust on my brake rotors when I wash or detail my car. Its ugly and messy. We get this question quite often.

I'm happy to announce that we have found a great solution to prevent this from happening during your car wash.

No more having to go back and wipe down your inner wheels after all that hard work.

This is currently is the best solution that we know of to prevent rust from happening to the rotors during your washing and detailing. This is not a permanent solution, the rotors will rust after you drive in the rain or they get wet.

STOP the RUST from ruining your wash and details.



Manufacturer Description:


Rustopper effortlessly prevents rust from forming on your brake rotors after cleaning wheels and braking systems.

Product features:
- Rustopper was designed to prevent “rust dust” – the initial brake dust on clean wheels that occurs after washing.
- Rustopper’s Acid-free, pH-neutral formula will not attack wheel coatings, lug nuts or braking systems.
- Rustopper is safe on all types of steel and alloy wheels (including chrome and polished wheels), anodized finishes and single stage paints.

Directions for Use:

1. After cleaning wheel and braking system, rinse thoroughly with water and let excess water drip for several seconds.

2. From a close distance, apply liberally to brake rotor surface, spraying in a sweeping motion around the rotor face at least two times.

3. The liquid may fizz as it reacts with the iron rotor. Finally, wipe any excess liquid inside wheel.

Precautions:

Protect against frost or freezing. Do not apply in direct sunlight or to hot wheels.

POSSIBLE EYE AND SKIN IRRITANT. Contains Sodium Nitrite. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Use in well ventilated areas. In case of eye contact rinse immediately and thoroughly with water. Harmful by inhalation and if swallowed. Repeated or prolonged exposure may cause irritation of eyes and skin. In case of skin contact, wash with soap and water. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Wouldn't it be better to just drive the car around the block and get all the rust off with braking?

That's the whole point of this product. It's so that there won't be any rust after a wash so when you drive it immediately after a detail, there won't be any rust particles that grind off the rotor that will in turn dirty up your clean wheels right away.

that would be correct. thank you DaytonaJae.

once you drive it and hit the brakes (on a wheel without rustopper) the rust will hit your inner wheel and you would need to clean them again.

Uh, I've NEVER had rust form "immediately after a detail", and I've been washing my cars since the late '60's... and yes, MOST of my cars had disc brakes. It takes a few days for rust to form. And, how does one spray the back side of the rotor? It's going to get wet from washing, right?

Sorry, but I, imho, fail to see the "need" for this product.

Let me come clean and say I'm a sucker for auto potions of all kinds, but Galo, me thinks you have this figured out pretty well.

Just to add a comment or two.....I dry my car with an electric blower so there is no water left on the rotors to rust. Guess if you leave your car outside in very high humidity the rotors might eventually develop a micron of surface rust. Can't imagine that would be anything like the accumulation of brake pad residue.

Yea... I don't get it. I do see rust if I leave the car in the garage for a day or two after washing, but I have never ever seen rust "dust" on wheels before... Brake dust yes, dust from rusty rotors, no.

I think this product is meant more for detail pros and car shows, where you can't or don't want to drive the car around too much and redo any of your work...with this, you can rinse down the car, do the detailing, and the customer can come by and the car will be perfect...neat product, but very limited use application.

this product is not for everyone, its for the ocd and the pro users.

if the rust doesn't bother you then you don't need this product. if it does you may want to consider it. :rockon:
