Minimize Rust and VOC’s
Corrosion protection is an important and often necessary step to preserve a product’s finish, but most solvent based solutions can be hazardous and emit high VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) during the process. While aqueous solutions are often safer, they tend to offer shorter term protection and can increase overall costs.
The latest addition to the Metal Guard® family offers safer, environmentally friendly options for rust prevention and protection that can reduce shipping and storage costs. Metal Guard 350 and Metal Guard 700 are both water-based, solutions and provide corrosion protection comparable to typical water-displacing oils. These biodegradable formulas produce extremely low V.O.C’s while providing outstanding lubricity and corrosion protection on blackened, phosphated, and bare metal surfaces. Protection on bare steel Q panels with Metal Guard 350 can last up to 60 days with just a thin rust preventative layer when tested per ASTM D-2247 specifications. Protection on bare steel Q panels with Metal Guard 700 can last up to 15 days when tested per ASTM D-2247 specifications.
