rust and corrosion are factors of major economic importance costing industry and consumers abnormal expenses. This unwanted expenditure can be curtailed/eliminated markedly through the use of petroleum based temporary rust and corrosion preventives.
various protective measures like alloying,plating, painting, etc are used by the engineering industry to prevent metals from the effects of corrosion. While the measures indicated above areof a permanent / semi permanent nature, petroleum based rust preventives find wide application for temporary corrosion protection during storage and transportation. Rustop grades have been selectively formulated for various applications and offer the following advantages. - these are non staining- these are compatible with lubricating oils and hence the surface film need not be removed. - these are easily applied by brush, spray or swab. - these are easily removable by solvent- these are economical
hp rustop 173, 184
solvent cut back type rust preventive useful under moderate conditions and for interim protection from rusting. Rustop 173 possesses finger print neutralization and water displacement
rustop 184 is a light moderate duty rust preventive giving non drying film.
application areas :rust preventive specially designed for application on wide range of single items, on interior surfaces where elaborate protection is unnecessary. However these grades should not be used where small orificed cavities occur.
