RUST-X Specialised in Corrosion Prevention and designs products to provide advanced corrosion inhibition for metals. The products contain special inhibitors that prevent corrosion of steels, copper tarnishing and aluminium white oxide formation.

 EVAP-3 OIL is a  MEDIUM DUTY solvent based Disappearing Lubricant designed for those applications wherein minimal oil film is permissible. This product leaves a thin imperceptible film of lubricant that facilitates a clean die release of thin sheet or roll stock. The carrier generally dries in 20 minutes to 1 hour. Normally, cleaning is not required after using vanishing lubricant. 


EVAP-3    will  virtually disappear  - at pre-determined intervals - thus completely  eliminating  need  for any further  cleaning, degreasing, buffing or polishing prior to shipping in many operations. EVAP-3 specifically formulated for use in roll forming and press operations on pre finished and other specialty metals. EVAP-3 is a heavy duty grade in-tended for use in severe applications. It will provide better finish when forming heavier  gauge metals or tougher alloys. EVAP-3  is recommended for galvanized aluminum strip, copper and steel.
