Rustop 173


Detail Description

Rust and corrosion are factors of major economic importance costing industry and consumer’s
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 are of 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


  • 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
