Product Description

Product Description

Use ZERUST® Axxanol™ A35CD-7 high-flash solvent-based rust preventative to safely protect metal components, machined and cast parts, engines, molds, and more for up to 6 months during shipment, storage, and work-in-progress. During drying, the solvent completely evaporates, leaving behind a safe dry-to-touch rust preventative coating. As a result, Axxanol™ A35CD-7 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. Axxanol™ A35CD-7 does not intentionally contain barium or heavy metals and complies with Global Automotive Declarable Substance, TSCA, RoHS, and REACH SVHC requirements.
