About Promech

From the Founder

I have been a car guy, or hot rodder, since the age of about 10. Classics and restorations were always top of the list. Tearing apart these old relics was always a challenge. The products available to break loose rusted nuts, bolts, etc. were expensive, and we usually had to use almost an entire can on a couple of bolts and let it sit for days. We still ended up busting them off with a breaker bar. Some of the stuff was vintage and irreplaceable. 

I thought the slipperiest substance in the world is worthless unless it can get down into these bolts. I mixed some stuff up in my garage using a very aggressive carrier, and it worked. Though it evaporates quickly, it penetrates the worst rotted and rusted situations in the restoration world.

Promech Penetrating Oil is now fully GHS and OSHA Compliant

Promech Penetrating Oil is now fully GHS and OSHA Compliant

The most powerful rust and corrosion destroying penetrant available is now totally GHS (Global Harmonized System) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) compliant. The GHS is a global set of standards for products, and the United States joined the rest of the world in adopting these standards in August 2015. OSHA requires products to meet these standards, yet is allowing manufacturers time to comply. Promech is ahead of the game, however, and fully compliant now!

Promech has also changed its propellant in the aerosol versions, which drops its flammability rating from a level 3 to a level 2, thus easing storage requirements by both OSHA and insurance. Lab results from this change also provided additional beneficial information, such as reduction of VOC content from the previous 8% to now less than 1%! Promech is now legal for use and sale in even the most restricted South Coast Air Quality Management District of California, and without dilution! Promech is now not only the most effective, but also the most environmentally friendly!

Lab tests also showed that the new propellant does not mix with Promech's active ingredients; it vaporizes and does not dilute the formula, making it more powerful than ever!

Promech rewrites the science of penetrating oils and catalysts. It is not a lubricant, but a rust and corrosion destroying agent. Competitors claim their product can penetrate gaps as small as 1 millionth of an inch. While impressive, a part isn't severely seized if there are gaps at all, however small. Promech frees the worst cases of rusted/corroded hardware—parts that are literally “welded” together by corrosion. Rather than trying to penetrate and lubricate, Promech “digs” through and destroys the rust and corrosion, molecule by molecule, often “fizzing off” the waste. It does this all without harming the metal hardware itself!

​Many federal, state, and local government supported service facilities, as well as OSHA overseen major MRO's are phasing out the use of aerosol chemicals due to fire and safety hazards. To meet this need, Promech, the most powerful rust and corrosion destroying penetrant on the planet, is now available in a new 16 oz. non aerosol package with trigger sprayer. Tested during development for some time, a high quality sprayer was created that will withstand the powerful ingredients that make Promech the most effective penetrant available.

​The new non aerosol Promech spray option is, as with its original formula, completely GHS (Global Harmonized System) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) compliant. The GHS is a global set of standards for products worldwide, and the United States joined the rest of the world in establishing compliance with GHS in August of 2015. OSHA requires that products meet these standards, though allowing manufacturers a grace period during which to adjust. Promech is ahead of the game by becoming fully compliant now!

Testimonials

"I know Promech was not intended for this use but……….. I’m restoring a ’39 Chevy and has the original chrome bumper. It was really “Tanned” with rust. I sprayed it with Promech and about 15 minutes and a couple of shop rags later, it looks great! Now I don’t have to search for a reproduction bumper.
