You have a task to do and the whole operation comes to a halt because of some serious rust in the wrong place. Time is important and the pieces are critical and cannot be replaced. What you want is the best way to free up those stuck nuts and get your job done. Time for a little Pipe Break – a product that works fast.
You have many products to choose from, but what you really need here is a true penetrating oil that creeps and breaks down rust. It gets to the problem, works through that rust and allows you to loosen up the unmoveable.
What makes Pipe Break better than the rest?
An important characteristic of penetrating oil is its ability to effectively penetrate down to the problem. Part of what helps it get down through tight places is the material’s surface tension.
Creep is certainly not a scientific term, but a good descriptor of how penetrating oil works. The penetrant needs to work its way down to where the problem is. Pipe Break's low viscosity and resulting surface tension allows it to penetrate into the tightest of places. A little tapping creates vibration to help it creep even further.
Another quality of an effective penetrating oil is its ability to break down rust and soften it. When metal corrodes, the rust takes up more volume than the original metal. What was once a tight nut and bolt is now even tighter if rust has formed on the threads and your nuts are stuck.
Once you’ve loosened up, it’s always best to leave a little lubricant film behind to be sure you stay that way. Pipe Break does exactly that.
Pipe Break is a super penetrant formulated by Calfonex to be just what is needed – more than just a penetrating oil. It has all four major components to be “THE” product of choice when you really need to loosen up!
How to Get the Best Results from Pipe Break
Spray Pipe Break on the affected area, tap lightly with whatever tool you have at hand. Spray a little more, tap a little more. Wait a few minutes. The vibration helps work Pipe Break down into the area to be loosened. Give it a little time to work and it should be loose and come apart. For those completely impossible jobs, apply Pipe Break, tap the area and let it sit overnight. Pipe Break will penetrate and break down the rust. The next day, the fastener should loosen up.
