Naval Jelly


#1

It’s Naval (as in Navy) Jelly…initially developed for removing
rust on ships. If I didn’t live on the water in Florida I’m sure I
wouldn’t know what it was either. Unfortunately, I have very good
reason to be familiar with Naval Jelly. Being the diverse,
international group that we are, I’m sure there are many things that
need clarifying from time to time. Never be afraid to ask.

Hi Marion,

Do you know what Naval Jelly is made up of!!!

The main active ingridient in Naval Jelly is phosporic acid. That’s
why it does such a good number on rust (the iron kind).

It contains phosphoric acid for one thing, producing a finish similar
to Parkerization. A similar product goes by the trade name of Ospho
and is thin and watery to be painted on with a brush. Geo.

George Stanford - you refer to a surface treatment resulting from the
use of naval jelly as similar to Parkerization. What is it? How do
you usually obtain it? On what metals? Thanks
