Removing rust and verdigris from armor

From: Mark Vine <100436.3447>

Three products used to great effect over here for the removal of
rust and verdigris are Biox Conservation Liquid, Biox Conservation
Gel (ideal for use with dissimilar metals and for more localised
treatments where immersion may not be practical) and Renaissance

Both Biox Conservation Liquid and Gel are non-classified as far as
hazards go,though both may dry out unprotected skin after prolonged
immersion or contact. Biox Conservation products have been used to
great effectiveness on everything from blunderbusses and World War I
tanks to coins and jewelry, archaeological finds and even deep sea
diving apparatus (for which coincidently Biox Conservation Gel is
approved by the Lloyds Register on deep-sea breathing gear).

Similarly Renaissance De-Corroder is a non-toxic immersion based
system for rust removal consisting of an amine complex of
hydro-oxycarboxilic acid in aqueous solution, it too is classified
as non hazardous.

Our offices here in the United Kingdom and in Springfield, America
will be happy to provide technical and material safety data sheets
sheets and samples for all three products on request.
