Water based Rust Preventives And VCI Water based Additives

 

Water based rust preventives have been trending in industry for a while now. These products were develop as an environmentally friendly alternative to classic oil based rust preventatives. We have a wide range of products available for either indoors or outdoors protection. Indoors Water based formulations are extremely attractive because they are lower cost than most oils, usually VOC free, safe to store and manipulate, have excellent humidity chamber results and can sometimes be used as metalworking fluids or metalworking fluid additives. Outdoors capable corrosion inhibitors are also a very attractive solution that can provide similar protection as their solvent-based counterparts while being safer to use, manipulate and dispose. The biggest drawback to going Water based is that surface preparation requirements are higher and results are less forgiving to a non optimum level of cleanness.

VpCI®-377 / EcoAir® VpCI®-377

Water based Rust Preventive Concentrate For Indoors Protection

VpCI®-377 is a Water based concentrate designed as a complete replacement for oil-based rust preventives for indoor protection of equipment and components. VpCI®-377 is a corrosion preventive liquid that meets tough anti-pollution requirements. The wide dilution range with water (0.5-20%)* allows flexibility to customize the length of protection required and the applied cost per square foot (or m2).
VpCI-377 forms a solution in water and is applied to metal surfaces by spraying or dipping. VpCI-377 does not need to be removed, but if necessary, can be removed with conventional Alkaline cleaners.

M-250 soluble oil additive

M-250

Mineral Oil Based Metalworking Fluid Rust Preventive Additive

M-250 is an anticorrosion additive to soluble oils, which is designed for use with a variety of naphtenic oil-based formulations. M-250 contains emulsifiers which allow this product to support stability of water emulsion (when added to the ready to use emulsion) or to add some emulsification properties to the soluble oil (concentrate). When M-250 is blended with appropriate base oils and lubricants, the resulting soluble oil concentrate produces a stable oil in water emulsion, that is non-separating and non-foaming ready-to-use metalworking fluid.
M-250 is very compatible with many lubricants such as chlorinated paraffins, esters, and sulfurized fats. It is compatible with a range of biocides and defoamers which can be added to the soluble oil concentrate or working emulsion as needed.
As an additive to soluble oils, M-250 can be added to the final oil in water emulsions in concentration 0.75% or to the oil concentrate 10-20% based on the dilution ratio with water.
