Spool Corrosion Process

Postby denis barden » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:10 am

Ive got 2 Twin Power Spools that have small amounts of corrosion inside the area where the line goes
Im going to clean the corrosion out and seal it with Clear Finger Nail Polish.
Has anybody stopped corrosion this way before?

Unless you get all of the corrosion out it will happen under the nail polish. Even good aluminium will start to corrode within seconds of being cut, sanded or polished. Just spray some inox on it after you cleaned it up. Prevention is better than a cure. When spooling up, put the first 20 or 30 meters of line on and spray with inox generously and wipe off excess. Doesn't wash out with water. Good protection and has no effect on the line, mono or braid.

Never done it that way before.
That inox is good stuff though. I use it for a lot of things. Works well :thumbsup:

There is only 2 ways to remove aluminium corrosion mechanical and chemical, once removed it needs to be treated. Once the corrosion is removed we use a chromic acid called alodine to prevent it reoccurring then paint. Most aluminium reels have a coating called anodizing which is only thousands of an inch thick and easily scratched leaving the aluminum unprotected. Bare aluminium boats are made from a more purer aluminum less prone to corrosion but not as strong. Washing in fresh water and a coating of inox as an example will slow the process.
