Technical Data

  • Function:

    Zerust® Axxatec™ 80C is a water-based rust preventative liquid concentrate that may be diluted from 2% to 7.5% per the application. This aqueous-based corrosion inhibitor system protects ferrous metals via proven Zerust® Integrated Corrosion Technologies (ICT®). Use Axxatec™

    80C to protect bare ferrous metals such as cast iron, steel and its alloys during shipping, storage and assembly.

    Axxatec™ 80C forms a clear, thin, dry-to-touch coating and is safe for use on painted surfaces, rubber seals, and plastics. It provides short-term (for months-depending on concentration) indoor protection or in plain packaging and protects for years in hermetically sealed spaces or Zerust® VCI packaging. Axxatec™ 80C is designed for use on ferrous metals, but may provide some protection to other metals such as aluminum, copper, brass, and nickel alloys, etc. Test before use on non-ferrous metals.
