What if the lock is rusty?

the surface of steel is plated with a layer of metal that is not easy to rust, such as zinc, tin, chromium, nickel, etc. These metal surfaces can form a layer of dense oxide film, so as to prevent iron products from rusting due to contact with water, air and other substances.

lock rust how to do

lock rust is mostly after rain or contact with water, not timely drying or wipe dry caused, the following describes some common practices.

clean the lock surface with dry cloth.

drip soybean oil, sewing machine oil or sesame oil into the keyhole. At the same time, dip the key with a few drops of oil, insert it into the keyhole and slowly move it back and forth several times. If you feel smooth, you can open it by turning the key again.

after the lock is opened, timely use a few drops of oil, wipe it with dry cloth, and maintain it. If you want insurance, you should replace the lock in time. Because this method is not to try everything.

if there is no oil temporarily, it can be replaced by soap or debris of pencil lead, but the effect is slightly poor.

pour some kerosene into the lock hole, because it has the function of dissolving rust. There is also a kind of rust holding agent, which is the same extrusion spray (with a small tube, in order to avoid scattering) of canned and anti mosquito Bipu. Spray it into the lock hole. After dissolving rust, drop it out and then put some pencil foam into it, and it will be as good as before.

This method is not suitable for too bright clothes. The vinegar drops on the rust stains, slowly scrub, and finally rinse with soapy water.

do not twist the key to open the door

sometimes, due to the gravity of the door leaf itself or the loose leaf of the door, the door leaf sinks and the locking or opening is not smooth. At this time, it is often very difficult to open and lock the door with the key. At this time, don’t twist the key to avoid breaking the key and adding trouble.

rust removal and rust prevention

rust is a chemical reaction. When iron is put for a long time, it will rust. Iron is easy to rust, and water is one of the substances that make iron easy to rust. However, water alone will not make iron rust. Only when oxygen in the air dissolves in water, oxygen reacts with iron in the environment with water, it will produce something called iron oxide, which is rust. Rust is a brownish red material, it is not as hard as iron, it is easy to fall off, a piece of iron completely rusted, the volume can expand 8 times. If the rust is not removed, the spongy rust will absorb water easily, and the iron will rot faster.

to remove rust, you can shovel it off with various tools, or soak it in acidic solution to dissolve it. After removing the rust, the surface of the iron must be treated, coated with a layer of lead, and then coated with paint; Or plated with other metals that don’t rust easily. A more thorough way is to add some other metals to iron to make a stainless alloy. The stainless steel we are familiar with is an alloy made by adding a little nickel and chromium to the steel.

common methods to prevent iron from rusting are:

(1) to form an alloy to change the internal structure of iron, for example, adding chromium, nickel and other metals into ordinary steel to make stainless steel, which greatly increases the rust resistance of steel products.

(2) it is a common and important method to protect the surface of iron products from rust. According to the composition of the protective layer, it can be divided into the following categories:

a, mineral oil on the surface of iron products, paint or firing enamel, plastic spraying, etc., for example, car, bucket, etc; The machine is often coated with mineral oil, etc.

b. The surface of steel is plated with a layer of metal which is not easy to rust, such as zinc, tin, chromium, nickel, etc. These metal surfaces can form a layer of dense oxide film, so as to prevent iron products from rusting due to contact with water, air and other substances.

c. A dense and stable oxide film is formed on the surface of iron products by chemical method to prevent iron products from rusting.

(3) keeping the surface of iron products clean and dry is also a good way to prevent iron products from rusting.
