Liquid corrosion inhibitor

Ready to use

Free from toxic substances or substances under regulatory restrictions (candidate list, REACH Annexes XIV and XVII) : nitrite free, borate free, phosphate free

Applications - Dosage

EMARUST®LCI-1 is designed for the water based formulations devoted to the application on metal substrates, such as :

  • anticorrosive primers
  • Direct To Metal (DTM) paints
  • clear varnishes


  • paints and clear varnishes : from 2 to 4% based on the total weight

EMARUST ® LCI-1 compatibility must be systematically checked before use in a paint or varnish formulation.

Post-addition is the simplest option. If EMARUST ® LCI-1 causes some aggregates at this stage, we recommend to disperse with a high speed, for example at the end of the pigment grind.

EMARUST ®LCI-1 can release an odour specific to its composition, even in the dry film, for a prolonged period of time.

From one batch to another, or when ageing, EMARUST ® LCI-1 colour can become darker. This change does not affect the product’s properties.
