Product Description

Product Description

When applied and dried, this long-lasting water-based rust preventative leaves a safe, clear, slightly tacky protective coating. As a result, Axxatec™ 80C 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, making it safer and more economical to use than solvent-based systems. Even though gloves are not mandatory, we recommend using clean gloves without lint or talc to keep metals free of contaminants.

After 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. Axxatec™ 80C long-lasting water-based rust preventative does not contain solvent or VOC, is non-flammable, complies with Global Automotive Declarable Substance, TSCA, ECHA SVHC, RoHS, and REACH requirements, and is environmentally friendly.
