Salt-Away has been around for quite a few years, and I've used it religiously on my own boats and reels. The product is the best of it's type on the market, with testimonials and scientific back-up to prove the point. It's the best in the business for salt reduction and removal.

There are three basic methods of removing salt with Salt-Away:

1. Immersion
2. Pressure from spray bottles, compression pump sprayers, garden or other hoses, pressure washers. Diluting Salt-Away is necessary either by pre-mixing or by delivering it from a device that is set to the correct dilution ration while attached to a water hose.
3. Wet vacuuming

Salt-Away must be diluted. The Salt-Away solution immediately dissolves any soluble contaminant. Runoff is required to remove the salt. As runoff begins, ingredients in the product will not allow the soluble contaminants in their dissolved state to attach to the surface, and a sheeting effect is created allowing the runoff to carry the contaminants all the way off the equipment. In areas that stay wet longer and are primarily inaccessible or where salt is trapped, the corrosion inhibitors in the product will keep equipment from rusting and corroding from the inside-out.

Immersing items in a bath of Salt-Away solution is accomplished by dipping the item into the solution until completely covered by the liquid, and removing it and allowing the liquid to run off the surfaces due to gravity. This is a common method for cleaning reels - the old dump 'em in a bucket routine used on many long range boats on the way back home. Doing this in plain old water does not really get the job done, as many guys have found. But, this method when used with a diluted solution of Salt-Away does work, and work well. The recommended dilution ratios for an immersion solution with fresh water can range from 5% to 20% by volume. A richer solution greater than 20% by volume is not recommended. Rinsing the item with fresh water after the immersion process is optional.

Application by pressure methods: There are 2 conditions necessary for Salt-Away to remove salt:
(1) the pressure of the water source must be consistent and great enough to cause runoff and...
(2) complete and thorough runoff of the solution to the exit areas of the surface must occur. Except for salt build-up areas, results are immediate. If these conditions do not exist, the Salt-Away solution will dissolve the salt, but the salt will remain on the surface.

Vertical Surfaces: Upon reaching the surface to be treated, the Salt-Away solution immediately dissolves any soluble contaminant. If the pressure is not strong enough to cause complete runoff, the solution will dissolve the soluble contaminants, the runoff will begin, then slow to a drizzle, and eventually stop before reaching the removal area. If this situation occurs, the salt is not fully removed.

Horizontal Surface: The method for removal is more difficult, but can be accomplished by "pushing" the dissolved contaminants with the pressurized spray or stream of the Salt-Away solution until they are pushed off the surface.

Salt crystals are a mineral of the earth and can not be destroyed. There is no other element or product that can cause salt crystals to disappear or vanish from a surface by dissolving them. But they can be moved while in solution! After it is moved, it will stay where it is put until something else comes along and moves it again. Salt-Away helps you move the salt away from the metal surfaces you are attempting to protect.

Recommended Dilution Ratios - for general maintenance
(for specific winterizing and for use with more serious corrosion concerns higher ratios can be recommended - info supplied with product)
1 oz concentrate/4 gallons of water for pressure applications - water hose or other non-spray bottle application. Recommended for exterior salt removal for general maintenance, also recommended for salt water engine flush applications.
2 oz concentrate/4 gallons of water, for tougher exterior salt removal problems
 

How do fishermen and boaters use Salt-Away, the basic how-to's of it all...
1 - Reel bath - use a diluted solution of Salt-Away in a bucket and dunk your reel if it's been exposed to a lot of salt or been immersed in saltwater. Crank up the drag (lever or star) when dunking, back off to allow the reel to dry. In some cases it's not a bad idea to crank the handle a few turns to loosen intruded salt deposits.

2 - Spray down - if the salt exposure is minimal use a diluted spray to dissolve the salt particles and then wipe 'em off the reel.

3 - Boaters should flush their outboards after saltwater use. The proof is graphic and demonstrable, if you flush your motor after saltwater use, it WILL LAST LONGER.

SALT-AWAY CONCENTRATE FORMULA

Salt-Away's claims about its performance only applies to Salt-Away and the use of our equipment.

Our products are guaranteed to perform as we claim. Using another product with Salt-Away's equipment does not mean that other products will be as effective as Salt-Away.

The blend of chemicals used in Salt-Away are not the same as our com-petitors' chemicals. 

Special Secret Blend

Salt-Away is a carefully selected blend of ingredients specifically chosen to provide the optimum concentration of well-known cleaning materials and surface-active agents, to provide salt removal from a wide variety of surfaces.

There are no hydrocarbon solvents in the formula and the cleaning action is designed not to remove lubricating products.

Included in Salt-Away are rinse aids and liquid and vapor corrosion inhibitors.

The ingredients are considered non-hazardous, non-toxic, and biodegradable and, as such, discharging Salt-Away into normal drainage outlets is safe.

Safe to use on virtually all surfaces, including Magnesium, Aluminum, Iron, Steel, Stainless Steel, Chrome, Paint, Gel Coat, Nylon, Isinglass, Vinyl, Plastic, Glass, Wood, Leather, Rubber, Canvas.

Salt-Away is also safe to use near plants, pets, children and other living things.

Salt Removing Agent

Salt-Away’s salt removing agent completely removes fresh salt and breaks down salt build-up.

Its high, dense foaming action assists as an indicator to see where Salt-Away has been applied, and it also ‘clings’ to surfaces to slowly soak through the layers of salt.

As the salt dissolves into the Salt-Away salt removing agent, the crystals are lifted into the solution.

If Salt-Away is sprayed on the surface and not rinsed off, the water evaporates out of the solution and the salt crystals are embedded into the residue.

The liquid and vapor corrosion inhibitors in the residue will not allow the salt crystals to attack the surface.

If Salt-Away is rinsed off the surface, the salt crystals are lifted off the surface and washed away.

A second application of Salt-Away is recommended for further protection.

Salt-Away’s salt removing agent, which causes the foam, is non-hazardous.

This foam dissipates within a few minutes.

We are very concerned about environmental conditions, and we do not want our customers to perceive that any element of our product is hazardous.

Further, we want our customers to keep a copy of our Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) on file. This document verifies that Salt-Away is not hazardous and is helpful to agencies who may not be familiar with our products.

Contact Us to request an MSDS.

 

 

Rinse Aid

Salt-Away’s advanced formula contains a new, popular rinse aid.

This rinse aid performs while fresh water is being applied to rinse off equipment.

While the fresh water is mixing with the Salt-Away solution, the rinse aid causes the mixture to ‘sheet off’ the surfaces, and keeps hard minerals from the rinse water from spotting the equipment.

Liquid and Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors

The ingredient second highest in percentage content is Salt-Away’s corrosion inhibitors.

Tested for 18 months, this corrosion inhibitor works in liquid solutions and vapor solutions.

It is 100% non-hazardous and is a high-performance inhibitor which saves your equipment from rusting and corroding when Salt-Away is used on a regular basis.

Deep, Rich Blue Color

With this deep, rich, blue color, it is very easy to see the strength of Salt-Away while being diluted.

Shows concentration of product.

Product Concentration and Dilution Ratio

Salt-Away is extremely concentrated.

The Salt-Away Mixing Unit was used in the vast majority of the testing performed in the development of Salt-Away.

Salt-Away is manufactured to be dispensed from the Mixing Unit at a ratio of 512 parts water to 1part Salt-Away.

This dilution ratio is meant for salt water marine engine flushing and normal external salt removal on ANY surface, by means of dispensing with the Mixing Unit connected to a U.S. standard garden hose.

Add 1-2 ounces of Salt-Away Concentrate to each gallon of water when immersing a salt-corroded part into a solution of Salt-Away and water.

This dilution ratio is also recommended for boaters who want to immerse the lower unit of their outboard motor into a Salt-Away solution.

Most of our testing data show problems of salt build-up are solved by using Salt-Away at the same dilution ratio referenced above, and repeating the application on a regular basis.

We recommend our Salt Build-up Removal Program for build-up problems.

Our recommended dilution ratio has always been 512 parts water to 1 part Salt-Away. Our New, Advanced, Enriched Formula, introduced in 2001, is much more concentrated than our Original Formula, thereby causing the Advanced Formula water ratio to Salt-Away to be much greater.

Our recommendations are intended to be conservative.
