Product Description

Product Description

Use Axxatec™ 85-F water-based VCI rust preventative for protection during assembly, shipping, storage, or inside vessels after hydrostatic testing. To gain the benefit of the VCI, use Axxatec™ 85-F in a tightly sealed, foggable enclosure or void. After application by fogging or pressurized spray and letting the coating thoroughly dry, it leaves a safe, thin protective coating that is safe for use on most painted surfaces. Furthermore, Axxatec™ 85-F water-based VCI rust preventative protects for up to 1 year in plain packaging and up to 5 years in hermetically sealed spaces or ZERUST®/EXCOR® VCI packaging. Axxatec™ 85-F does not contain solvent, is non-flammable, and complies with Global Automotive Declarable Substance, TSCA, ECHA SVHC, RoHS, and REACH requirements.
