Birchwood Casey's line of aqueous and solvent-based inhibitors and sealants prevent rust and corrosion
Birchwood Casey offers a full line of eight different aqueous and solvent-based inhibitors and sealants to prevent rust and corrosion on all metal surfaces.
Referencing a corrosion resistance comparison chart, manufacturers can select the rust preventative that will best suit their needs. The different product formulations allow for variables such as the type of metal surface in question, term of protection needed, and conditions of exposure in handling, shipping and storage.
Birchwood Casey’s four solvent-based products provide robust protection for various metal surfaces, including raw steel/casting inventory, in-process parts, finished products in distributor warehouses, or parts in long-term storage or overseas shipment. Rust inhibitors are graded based on their performance in ASTM B117 Salt Spray Testing and/or ASTM D1748 Humidity Testing. Depending on the rust inhibitor selected, the user can achieve protective coatings with a slightly oily water-displacing film; a dry-to-touch, non-oily sealant; or a soft, waxy, self-healing film. Two of the products are also available in high flash point, non-VOC versions for areas with sensitive air quality requirements.
Following similar ASTM grading, Birchwood Casey’s four water-based products provide a range of protection levels. These products include a water-dilutable oil; a dry, water-based sealant; a satin-gloss acrylic polymer; and a high-gloss urethane polymer sealant. None of these aqueous products have any VOC content or flash point.
All eight Birchwood Casey products are available in five- and 55-gallon quantities.
