How Does Laser Rust Removal Work?
If we want to know how to clean the rust metal fast, we should know the how the rust formed. Today, IGOLDENCNC will introduce you how the rust formed.
Laser Rust Removal
After the iron reacts with oxygen and water molecules in the air, it will oxidize to produce iron trioxide, which is also called rust. Rust forms when iron is combined with the oxidation dissolved in water. This means that if the air does not contain water vapor, or there is no water at all, or there is no dissolved oxygen in the water, rust will not form. When a drop of rain falls on the surface of a shiny iron, the drop of water stays clean for a short time. However, after a while, iron and oxygen in the water began to combine to form iron oxide, or rust. The water droplets will turn reddish, and the rust will be suspended in the water. When the water droplets evaporate, the rust remains on the surface, forming a reddish rust layer. Once rust is formed, it will spread even in dry air. This is because rough rust tends to condense the water vapor in the air. It absorbs water vapor and stores it. This is why it is much easier to prevent iron rusting than to prevent rusting from spreading.
How does rust removal work?
Principle of laser rust removal: Use high-frequency high-energy laser pulses to irradiate the surface of the workpiece. The coating layer rust can instantly absorb the focused laser energy, so that the oil stains, rust spots or coating on the surface can be evaporated or peeled off instantly, and the surface attachments or surface can be effectively removed at a high speed. The cleaning method of the coating, and the laser pulse with a short action time, will not damage the metal substrate under the appropriate parameters.

Laser Rust Removal Application
The laser cleaning machine uses the instantaneous high temperature to melt and remove the contaminants on the surface of the object. It can be used in the metal industry and non-metal industry.
Laser cleaning machines used in the metal industry include: Cleaning of various metal materials: metal rust removal, paint removal, stains, and residue removal of steel, copper rust removal, aluminum and other metal materials derust and so on. For example, laser cleaning machine can be used in cleaning cars, various vehicle engines, molds, electronic products, precision metal parts, aerospace field, ship cleaning, etc.
The laser cleaning machine also can be used in the non-metal industry to remove oxides and grease on the surface of the object, and can only remove the contaminants on the surface of the object without causing any damage for the object body.
For example, laser rust removal in glass, ceramics, tire rubber products, cultural relics, rocks, buildings. leather, ceramics, artwork and so on.

Benefits of Laser Rust Removal:
Non-Destructive: Laser rust removal selectively targets the rust layer without damaging the underlying material, preserving the structural integrity of the object.
Precise and Controlled: The process allows for precise control over the amount of rust removed, making it suitable for delicate and intricate objects.
Environmentally Friendly: Laser rust removal is a clean process that does not require the use of harsh chemicals or generate hazardous waste.
No Surface Contamination: Unlike traditional methods that involve abrasive media or chemicals, laser cleaning leaves no residue or contaminants on the surface.
Versatility: Laser rust removal can be applied to various materials, including metals, ceramics, stone, and more.
