Heat resistant rust protection
Hi guys, can anybody suggest a HEAT RESISTANT rust protectant for chrome?
Thanks in advance,Dragan Svrakic

Your inquiry is a bit vague, Dragan. Nickel-chrome plating IS a heat resistant rust protectant. Chrome does not and cannot rust. If you are seeing rust it is because the nickel-chrome plating, either due to age or poor quality, is no longer able to protect the underlying steel from rusting.
