Breaking rust that is connecting two metal surfaces


To Whom It May Concern:

I am a student at University of Minnesota Mankato and I am working on an engineering project. The main problem that we are dealing with in this project is the breaking up two surfaces of metal that are connected by rust and corrosion. I was wondering if there is a solution out there that is known to lubricate the surfaces of the metal so it will take less force to break the rust free from the two surfaces? Right now it takes 25 tons of pressure to break, and it is desired to lower that pressure dramatically. 

Thank you for your time,
