Product Description

Product Description

Use Axxanol™ 33 to replace standard oil in dipping applications, such as in-line rolling mills, cold-rolled sheets and coils, wire bars, and cast and machined metals. As a result, ferrous and some non-ferrous metals are protected for up to 1 year during shipment, storage, and work-in-progress.

After application and allowing metals to completely dry, place them into ZERUST® Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) film packaging products for a more robust solution that protects for years during indoor storage or challenging shipping conditions, such as ocean freight. The coating is compatible with most engine oil lubricants. However, if the coating needs to be removed from the metal surface, use a compatible ZERUST® AxxaWash™ product, commercial alkaline, or solvent cleaner. Axxanol™ 33 does not intentionally contain barium or heavy metals. Additionally, it complies with Global Automotive Declarable Substance, TSCA, RoHS, and REACH SVHC requirements.
