What Causes Rust?

Rust is the normal electrochemical process of metals returning to their natural unrefined state. It occurs when Iron, Oxygen and Water (air moisture) combine. The rusting process can be accelerated when Iron is subjected to nature's minerals, chemicals and temperature fluctuations.

Why Does Rust Happen?

Iron and oxygen have opposite charges so they seek out each other to combine. When they combine, the iron loses electrons to oxygen atoms. This is called oxidation and when it happens it produces a chemical reaction forming Fe203 Iron Oxide otherwise known as Ferric Oxide, or more commonly known as rust.
