Not all rust and corrosion prevention products provide the same length or quality of protection. 

The world-renowned PICOGUARD Series is a comprehensive line of innovative, technologically-advanced and field-proven inhibitors to prevent rust from occurring on metal surfaces. PICO rust and corrosion inhibitors minimize downstream issues and improve environmental compliance.

  •  inhibitors deliver durable protection for metal that provide steel producers, steel processors, warehouses, metal service centers and their related industries increased productivity, profitability and confidence.

  • inhibitors offer short or long term, indoor and outdoor protection on all metal types in all environments, including acid and salt conditions for seasonal or year round use.

  •  inhibitors are formulated in water, solvent and oil-based matrices.  They may be applied by a variety of delivery systems, such as spray, brush, soak, immersion, roller coat and swab.

  •  inhibitors are also available as low and non-VOC fluids.

Many historically-used methods for rust, corrosion and scale removal have included strong caustics, acids, mechanical and abrasive procedures.  For those who experience the unfortunate condition of rust attack, most conditions for rust removal have been costly, inefficient, and hazardous.

PICOCLEAN X-RUST is a pH-neutral, water-based concentrate solution that is safe to use, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly. 

  •  is industry-proven to remove rust and corrosion by returning metal to its original quality surface appearance.

  •  passivates metal and provides a short term protection.


PICO also offers additional products in the PICOCLEAN X-RUST line for most rust removal conditions.


In addition, we also offer PICO RPO (Rust Penetrating Oil) to efficiently remove light rust from surfaces and leave behind a  barrier to prevent future attack.
