Haven't used it but since it doesn't need to be neutralized I'm not so sure about it.
I've never used it but heard its pretty good.what do they claim it'll do????
and why are you asking? Is there something you want to accomplish with it?

back a few years ago etch primer was used a lot, it used phosphric acid, so how is it that we didnt have to neautralize that????

Ospho is another example, its a phosphric acid that Removes rust, it also does not need neutralizing but everyone seems to think it does because its an acid...and people wonder why products fail,,, first off READ THE DIRECTIONS

I think rust products that aren't household names and aren't known by everybody to work shouldn't be trusted til it's obvious it's good stuff. Ospho, yeah, everyone vouches for that. I'd trust that, but I'd be leary about Picklex and the opinions of anyone selling it til it has a track record of years of customer satisfaction. Just my thoughts.

i blasted the bed of my truck when i first started on the project and sprayed it down with picklex20. i then put it on saw horses in the back of my barn and left it for 5 years while i finished the cab and frame. every spring when the barn was cool and the air was warm and humid, water would condense on the metal and drip onto the floor. the picture below is when i started back on the bed, the lower parts were getting surface rust and after 5 years you could see an orange tint to the whole bed. i ended up sand blasting the bed again and then epoxy primer before i did any bodywork. so yes it does keep rust at bay for a couple of years but it has time limits.

if i had to do it over, i would blast and seal it with epoxy. picklex20 is good for keeping bare metal stock from rusting.
