oxalic acid safe near tubes?

Did the hull last week then polished and waxed looks amazing.

Was thinking off doing above deck it will be carefully painted on but just concerned when jet washing it off would it have any adverse effects if it got on the hypalon tubes mainly where the tubes meet the deck?

None at all. Just try not to get it on metal fittings.

I did my hull recently with amazingly fast results. Didn't seem to damage where the hypalon tubes meet the unserside of the hull (although I was quite careful not to splah too much on the tubes).

I think you would be ok if you are careful, don't use too concentrated solution and wash off quickly and thoroughly.

What strength mix are you using by the way?

Hey Nos - thats good to know I will crack on with it this afternoon comfortable in the knowledge my tubes are going to be OK! What happens to stainless if it makes contact? The only areas I was thinking is round the suzuki dials and the deck round the aframe bolts?

Hi Steve - Cheers for the response I wimped out buying the neat stuff off ebay and mixing it myself and played it safe with Farecla Marine Professional Rapid Stain Remover. I would imagine this is a weak solution.

OK time to get painting then!

I left a stainless spoon in some strong home-mixed oxaclic acid and it went black. It did seem to bring up ally quite well, but it furred up rather fast afterwards.

I've used it to get some rust staining of s/s plates, it worked really well, but make sure that you wash it off with lots of water afterwards.

(Or try it on a hidden patch out of sight before you go mad with it...!!)
