Removes Iron/Rust Stains

Oxalic Acid is a versatile cleaning agent, known for its effectiveness in tackling tough stains, particularly rust stains. It is particularly effective in resolving issues related to hard water and mineral buildup. Its ability to chelate iron makes it an essential product for those looking to maintain clean and stain-free surfaces. We supply Oxalic Acid in bulk quantities suitable for industrial applications only.


Product Benefits

Rust stains are among the most challenging to remove. Biocel's Oxalic Acid is highly effective at dissolving and removing rust from various surfaces, including metal, concrete, and fabrics.


  • Superior Rust Stain Removal: Oxalic acid penetrates deeply into the rust, breaking it down and making it easier to wipe or rinse away.
  • Fast Action: Oxalic acid works relatively quickly to remove rust stains, making it ideal for quick cleaning tasks or larger-scale rust removal projects where time is of the essence.
  • Safe for Many Surfaces: While oxalic acid is potent against rust, it's generally safe for use on various surfaces, including metals like iron, steel, and stainless steel, as well as concrete, tile, and porcelain, minimising the risk of damage to treated surfaces.
  • Cost-Effective Solution: Compared to some alternative rust removal methods or professional services, oxalic acid-based products are often more affordable, providing a cost-effective solution for rust and iron stain removal.
  • Preventive Maintenance: Regular use of oxalic acid-based products can help prevent the formation of rust and iron stains by treating surfaces prone to oxidation, extending the lifespan of metal objects and maintaining their appearance.
  • Restoration and Renewal: Oxalic acid can restore the original appearance of surfaces marred by rust or iron stains, rejuvenating the aesthetics of objects, tools, and surfaces to their former glory.
