Product Description

Product Description

The near dry-to-touch light rust preventative film left on the protected surface does not interfere with the parts’ torque or pull-out requirements and was tested by an independent lab to be compatible with engine oil. Furthermore, use Axxanol™ 34CD to safely protect metal components, machined and cast parts, engines, and more for up to 1 year during shipment, storage, and work-in-progress. During drying, the solvent completely evaporates, leaving behind a safe near dry-to-touch light rust preventative coating. As a result, Axxanol™ 34CD coated and dried parts are safe to handle, and end users do not need to wear personal protective equipment such as a respirator, mask, or safety glasses. However, we recommend using clean gloves without lint or talc to keep metals free of contaminants.

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. Additionally, Axxanol™ 34CD does not intentionally contain barium or heavy metals and complies with Global Automotive Declarable Substance, TSCA, RoHS, and REACH SVHC requirements.
