What The GEL?


Unlike your nagging spouse, never let it be said that we at Workshop Hero™ don’t listen. You told us you wanted a rust remover that could be used on rusty items that can’t be soaked and we heard you loud and clear.

Say hello to Metal Rescue Rust Remover GEL— or what we at Workshop Hero call your On-the-Spot rust remover! Our new GEL is formulated to cling to metal, making it ideal for use on spot rust, vertical surfaces, or rust in hard-to-reach areas. In addition, GEL’s highly adhesive formula allows for controlled application which eliminates waste and the risk of harming the surface area around the rust.

“Our Workshop Hero research and development team locked themselves in their lab and worked vigilantly to develop a gel-based rust remover that not only removes rust but does so without harmful or corrosive acids, alkalis or solvents,” said Dave Yancho, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The good news, they did it!”

Metal Rescue GEL is non-toxic; environmentally friendly; biodegradable and easy to use; there’s no scrubbing, dipping, wire brushing, and in contrast to Metal Rescue’s other formulations — no soaking.

“During our extensive testing of GEL we found one essential step to be the secret to its success: for optimal performance GEL must remain moist. Do not allow GEL to dry,” explained Yancho.

To drive that point home, we coined the phrase “Keep GEL from Dryin’ and Wrap After Applyin’” and developed the Metal Rescue GEL signature plastic wrap method. You will see it on our packaging and as part of the recommended steps for use. Once GEL has been applied, cover area with common household plastic wrap to protect GEL from air exposure. It is that simple!

Currently, GEL is available in a 17.64 ounce jar through select Home Depot stores and online at www.HomeDepot.com and we aren’t foolin’ when we say GEL will be available as of April 1, 2018, on the shelves of all US AutoZone stores!
