Metal Coatings to Prevent Rust
Vanchem Performance Chemicals has a sizable selection of metal coatings to prevent rust
There is a high demand for metal coatings to prevent rust. Vanchem Performance Chemicals provide powerful surface treatment chemicals that can address this need while still offering added benefits, such as improved paint adhesion and cleaning targeted surface of various metals.
Vanchem has an extensive lineup of metal cleaners and inhibitors that act as metal coatings to prevent rust. We also sell products with organic inhibitors and surfactants that are designed to prevent rusting in acid pickling baths and some that target rust during metal finishing operations.
Metal coatings to prevent rust in our product line include, but are not limited to the following:
HIB L50: Is a concentrated blend of organic inhibitors and biodegradable surfactants. HIB L50 is designed for use as an inhibitor in sulfuric, hydrochloric, phosphoric, or hydrofluoric acid pickling baths up to an operating temperature of 210F. This inhibitor will increase the speed of scale removal from all grades of steel while still providing over 99% protection to base metal.
VANINHIB: VANINHIB is a water-based, short-term, inorganic, corrosion preventative that forms a thin alkaline film on the parts. VANIHIB contains no oils, no triethanolamine, no soaps and no chlorinated or aromatic solvents.
VANINHIB TR: VANINHIB TR is a water-based, short-term, indoor, organic corrosion preventative that forms a thin, transparent film on the parts. VANINHIB TR contains no oils, no octylphenol or nonylphenol ethoxylates, no soaps and no chlorinated or aromatic solvents. VANINHIB TR is used with water at concentrations between 1 to 2 % for short-term rust protection of 1 to 2 months.
VANGUARD 22: VANGUARD 22 is a combination cleaner-corrosion preventative that forms a water emulsion for use on base metals and phosphated surfaces. It is a concentrated oil base material, which readily mixes at use concentrations in water and leaves a non-drying film that is less evident on phosphated surfaces. At higher concentrations, it will clean stamping and mill oils from the surface before laying down a thin protective film of oil. VANGUARD 22 is normally used with water at concentrations between 5% and 30% by volume depending on the degree of protection desired. On suitably phosphatized surfaces, salt spray resistance of 72 hours is assured. Operating temperature should range between 120F – 180F. For immersion systems, a minimum of one minute is required on heavy phosphated parts. More time may be required to clean parts that are not phosphated.
ADVANTECH ZIRCONIUM: Developed by Calvary Industries, ADVANTECH phosphate-free Zirconium pretreatment has a tremendous advantage over legacy iron and zinc phosphate conversion coating systems with a magnitude of benefits;
- Ambient operational temperature, saving energy costs
- Significantly less sludge than iron and zinc phosphate, allowing for reduced maintenance like frequent washer descales and plugged nozzles
- Increased performance and minimized environmental impact
- Overall chemical savings of approximately 60% after converting from Zinc Phosphate to a Zirconium system
- Exceeding salt spray – 1200 hours B-117 salt spray
The most effective metal coatings to prevent rust are oil based or emulsion type inhibitors. For most industrial in-plant requirements, a product like VANINHIB TR is sufficient. For a full account of our metal coatings to prevent rust, see Inhibitors in our product guide. New polymer-based inhibitors are available as well for short-term in-house rust prevention.
