The following considerations must be made choosing the proper Nox-Rust product: What type of metal needs corrosion protection? Is it for outdoor or indoor use? How long will it be used for? How will it be applied? How and when will it be removed?
Those that are looking for an effective yet environmentally sound anti-corrosion product will want Nox-Rust EV9. This is a soybean-based coating that protects against rust and corrosion on metal items like tubes, ship pipes, transport equipment, engineered parts, fabricated metals, etc. It has the viscosity to coat even the most intricately designed metal parts, all without polluting the ground or water resources because it is biodegradable.EV9 is made with food grade soybean oil that has undergone bleaching and deodorization to make it resilient to spoiling over time. EV9 is low-VOC, meaning that it does not emit as many volatile organic compounds into the environment as other liquids and paints. EV9 is also non-flammable, non-toxic and even edible. And of course, the product’s most important components are Daubert Cromwell corrosion inhibitors, proven to guard against rust and weathering.If necessary, removal of EV9 is feasible using a hot alkaline wash or high-pressure steam. EV9’s organic components make it safe to be washed down a drain or sewer.
For those in need of a protectant for closed systems like hydraulic systems, coolant circulating systems and fuel tanks, Nox-Rust 1100 is the answer. Ready for use straight out of its container, Nox-Rust 1100 works as an oil lubricant to prevent rust caused by condensation build-up. This protection is necessary as condensation can occur inside these systems during lay-up and preservation measures. This product does not need to be removed after application.
Systems with a combination of metals like steel, aluminum, brass, zinc and iron do not pose a problem, as Nox-Rust 1101 can be used at its complete strength in both ferrous and non-ferrous metal systems. Some of these systems and metal containers may include fuel and other storage tanks, hydraulic and coolant circulating systems, transmissions, clutch compartments, cylinders, gear housings and crankcases, though Nox-Rust 1101 also can be fogged into shipping cases to protect metal materials during transport. Sold in aerosol cans, pails and drums, Nox-Rust 1101 may need to be reapplied, but its protection against corrosion last for up to a year.
This is a silica-free, environment friendly solution meant for use on closed metal systems and equipment that require hydrostatic testing before being stored. Nox-Rust 1200 is water soluble and can be applied by either fog or spray, leaving no residue in its tracks. The main benefits of this product include continuous ferrous metal protection against rust and corrosion, as well as compatibility with galvanized steel and copper. The clear and odorless protectant contains no phosphates, nitrites or heavy metals, and it generally does not necessitate removal.
Where acid fumes are present, Nox-Rust 4101 can be used to protect steel. This light oil has a soft, waxy film that can be dipped, sprayed, flow coated or brushed onto metals like steel and zinc, including non-ferrous metals. The easy-to-apply product lends itself to reliable corrosion protection and is non-staining and water-displacing.
Another water-soluble anti-corrosion product is Nox-Rust 9800, which is a clear, amber-colored, moisture-absorbing liquid that provides continuous corrosion, rust and oxidation protection for iron, steel, aluminum and zinc (it even removes fingerprints on these metals). Nox-Rust 9800 can be either sprayed or fogged into closed metal spaces like turbines, tanks and pipes. Once on, this product does not have to be removed.
Solutions for Indoor and Outdoor Protection:
Nox-Rust 3100 can be counted on to guard metal items stored outside against corrosion for a period of five years or more. During salt fog testing– widely regarded as the most rigorous ASTM standard for measuring corrosion protection effectiveness– Nox-Rust 3100 beat out its competition, proving that this product is the best choice for protecting metals on domestic and overseas shipments. When applied at the recommended dry film thickness, Nox-Rust 3100 will protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals in open or closed storage environments. It can be handled after 3-6 hours, and sets up in 12-24 hours. Should it become necessary, Nox-Rust 3100 can be taken off via solvent based thinners, hot alkaline washes or vapor degreasing.
NEW Nox-Rust 3100G
Nox-Rust 3100G has all the same corrosion protection properties as its parent, Nox-Rust 3100, but in a thicker consistency that allows it to adhere better to heavy, large and vertical surfaces. Very simple to apply by spray or brush, Nox-Rust 3100G is ideal for metal equipment stored outdoors beneath tarps or similar coverings.
No other product is more ideal for general metal protection, in either indoor or outdoor storage environments. Applied via spray, dip or brush, this product produces a firm and dry black film substance on surfaces that can be handled after 3-6 hours and set up in 12-24 hours. Although it can be used in any outdoor storage as well as indoor, it should be noted that Nox-Rust 5100 last much longer when in protected outdoor storage as opposed to unprotected.
Nox-Rust 5200 is for use on exposed and/or unpainted metals. Sold in pails, aerosol cans and drums, it comes as a brown, greasy film that transforms into a semi-firm coating within 12-24 hours.
