Preventing Rust on Chrome



is Stainless Shield ok for Chrome? if not, do you have a product for rust spot prevention on chrome?


For your convenience, I’ve highlighted the hyperlinks. Click on the hyperlink to get more information about the selected product.

Both Quick Silver and Stainless Shield work wonderfully on chrome. The protective shiny, silvery finish on stainless steel is chromium oxide which is similar to that on chrome plating, except that the protective methodology is a bit different. Chrome plating is only on the surface whereas the chromium in stainless steel is alloyed with the steel and is right through the metal.

Quick Silver is very effective at removing surface rust and re-passivating the chromium oxide surface to help protect against future rusting and Stainless Shield prevents the attack from the environmental causes of rusting, corrosion and pitting.

Thanks for your question,
