Corrosion inhibitor/shop primer for ferrous surfaces such as carbon steel, cast iron, galvanized (zinc plated) steel, stainless steel
SurfaGuard Metals is applied on metal surfaces to inhibit corrosion during trnasportation and storage until the installation. The corrosion rate is decreased up to 10 times and the metallic gloss remains unchanged, even when exposed to a corrosive environment.
SurfaGuard Metals is a water-based formulation which reacts with the metal surface (ferrous or non-ferrous) and inhibits the corrosion. The combination of nanoparticles and corrosion inhibitors results in the creation of an impermeable layer against humidity and oxygen. SurfaGuard Metals modiﬁes chemically the metal surface to form a passive layer and the corrosive agents cannot contact with the metal surface. The application of SurfaGuald Metals in stainless steel helps to preserve its "gloss" and shiny appearance while it can be used for removing and passivating existing rust.
Ferrous surface: carbon steel, cast iron, galvanized steel and stainless steel, non-ferrous surfaces: aluminum and zinc alloys, reinforced steel bars
Shake the container vigorously before use. The application surface has to be clean and dry. Clean the surface, prior to application, with an alkaline, acidic or neutral cleaner or solvent. Apply SurfaGuard Metals by a) immersing the metal for 3 - 10 minutes, or b) spraying for 1-3 minutes or c) brushing 2 coats using a brush or a roller. After removal of the application excess, curing takes place within 2 hours in ambient temperature. Consumption: Estimated consumption rate 5-8 m²/L, strongly dependant on the application method.
