How to remove rust on the machined surface without affecting the base metal




2006

I have machined parts which are protected by RPO in a sealed VCI bag. They are stored since three months. Now I want to ship these parts to customer. But rust has initiated.
It is a finish part. I don't want the base metal to undergo any change in color, hardness.
And after that it should be there for at least one month. Can anybody suggest the best thing to do.
Thanks,

You know, there have been a lot of new developments on rust stripping products in recent technical publications that do not effect base metals. I can't think of the names off the top of head right now, but I have referred one company to a product that he now uses. As for protection after treatment, I'm not sure about that.
