Product Description

Product Description

The VCI molecules migrate to protect hard-to-reach voids within an enclosed space, making the winterized foggable water-based rust preventative ideal for fogging into complex machine assemblies or packages that contain components with voids and chambers in cold weather applications. Use Axxatec™ 87-MW3 winterized foggable water-based rust preventative for protection during assembly, shipping, storage, or inside vessels after hydrostatic testing.

To gain the benefit of the VCI, use Axxatec™ 87-MW3 winterized water-based rust preventative in a tightly sealed, foggable enclosure or void. After application by fogging or pressurized spray and letting the coating thoroughly dry, the winterized water-based rust preventative leaves a safe, thin protective coating that is safe for use on most painted surfaces. Furthermore, Axxatec™ 87-MW3 protects for up to 1 year in plain packaging and up to 5 years in hermetically sealed spaces or ZERUST®/EXCOR® VCI packaging. Axxatec™ 87-MW3 does not contain solvent, is non-flammable, and complies with Global Automotive Declarable Substance, TSCA, ECHA SVHC, RoHS, and REACH requirements.
