Problem - Brake Rotors turn rust brown after washing - here's the solution

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.

Nice, I usually drive around the block a few times after washing to get the brown face off before I'm done with the car.

What was that wheel cleaner that was used? I use iron x and sonax.

After washing I usually just let the car roll down the driveway and stop before pulling into the garage. This did a couple of things - 1/ scraped light rust off of the rotors, 2/ got the water out of the side mirrors, 3/ got the water out of the belly pan. It was effective without going fast enough to attract dust to any water drops that eek out of the bumper area like a drive around the block would.

Personally, I don't think I'd ever buy a product to deal with this "problem" but to each his own.

Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner was used on the wheels.
