  • Formulations ready for use.
  • Preparations acting by forming an instant protective film to the metal surface, passivation of the metal, maintaining a pH favorable to the protection of the metal.
  • Available in a wide range of packaging, 1 kg to 1200 kg.

In the following, the terms “flash rust” and V.O.C. are mentioned repeatedly:

Flash-rust: a term used in the language of paint to describe the very rapid onset (flash) of rust on a metal substrate coated with an aqueous paint. This phenomenon occurs during the phases of application and drying. Our additives are used, among other properties, to prevent this oxidation.

V.O.C.: Volatile Organic Compounds: according to Directive 2004/42/EC, compounds containing at least the element carbon and one or more of the following elements: hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur, phosphorus, silicon, nitrogen, or halogen, with the exception of carbon oxides, carbonates, bicarbonates and whose initial boiling point, measured at standard pressure of 101.3 kPa, is less than or equal to 250 ° C.
