Synthetic rust preventive is biodegradable
Tower Oil & Technology Co. has developed a new rust preventive product, Rustbeat 66-SRP, using its Green Fluid Technology. The synthetic, biodegradable product contains 0.0 g/l of VOCs by ASTM E1868-10 test method.
The rust preventive protects against rust in humid environments for extended indoor storage periods and for long-distance transportation of steel parts. The product dries quickly to a water-displacing, thin film. It does not contain petroleum oil and is easy to remove in aqueous wash systems, the company reports.
The product can be applied by dip tank or spray application methods. It is not combustible, does not contain hazardous air pollutants, and does not produce an odor or mist as it is being used.
