Breaks Down Rust and Prevents Future Rusting
Our 3M™ 5-Way Penetrant attacks the corrosion that prevents the movement of commonplace parts, such as rusty cranks, levers and handles, as well as nuts and bolts that have seized. We designed this versatile, silicone-free chemical to spray evenly, spreading a thin, even film that penetrates the toughest barriers.

Additionally, this spray formula is capable of displacing moisture and drying out electronic elements, inhibiting potential rust and corrosion. 3M™ 5-Way Penetrant has also proven to be a handy cleaner for everyday, hands-on jobs. Its liquid composition also makes it a reliable lubricant for sensitive equipment and delicate instruments.
