Rated 5 out of 5Â by Contractor Works like Magic...but give it time to work
Worked like magic to free a frozen, rusted, galvanized, threaded 1 1/2" pipe from a tee in 24 hours. I'd leaned on this with an 18" wrench and a breaker bar and no luck (and I'm a big guy). Before giving up and tearing out the wall gave PB blaster a try - best $5 I've ever spent.
Scraped away hardened pipe joint compound, heated it with a torch, gave it several whacks all around with a hammer, and then sprayed several shots of PB into the threads and let it sit overnight. Next day it came apart easily.
Really does work but it needs time to penetrate. Don't think you can spray a frozen joint and 10 minutes later pull it apart. Let it sit overnight and it will work wonders.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by RednexToyz Break free rusted bolts
Used it to break free some rusted bolts. Tough jobs may require several shots and a bit of time to perform its job. Requires a little patience.

Had a rusted out bleeder valve that I tried torching, and other penetrates but nothing worked. A friend told me about this. Sprayed it had a beer, sprayed it had another beer, and it came off first try. Best stuff for 5 bucks!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by uturnagain1 the best overall penetrant ever
I have personally been using 16-PB since1963. It is the best product for it's labeled use that I have ever used, and then some. I have seen engines that are frozen because of corrosion of aluminum pistons in steel bores be freed up enough to be disassembled, a couple were even started. some scoring of course, but started and run. NO lie. It is a catalyst that will start a no start engine as long as it has compression, time and fuel, even if the fuel is old and stale. try it and you will toss out most of your other penetrant/lubricants/fuel stabilizers. try the 16tvf, trans valve fix too. it will de-carbon an engine better than having to tear the engine down.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DTSLCA Great product
This product works great in the wet environment of the swamp cooler, for lubrication and keeping the pillow block bearings from rusting and seizing in my cooler for past two seasons now. Works well for other applications like bike chains, vehicle suspension and trailer bolts, which is why I had to purchase another can.
