Galvanized iron

From: Vanessa Roth <vanessaroth>

I am interested in finding out what other conservators are using to
treat rusting galvanized iron.  In the past I have used citric acid
to reduce rust spots, but I am concerned that this could lead to
future problems, particularly with large artefacts that cannot be
thoroughly rinsed.  Has anyone had success with less interventive
treatments such as corrosion inhibiting coatings?
