Product Description

RUST-X TECTONIC is a brownish black liquid which can be applied with a brush on the parts to be protected or can be applied by dipping the parts. The liquid forms a black protective layer on the part which can be degreased with solvents.

Tectonic Quick Dry, dries very quickly after application on the components and forms a non scratch-able film after 1-2 minutes of application.

TECTONIC molecules are highly hydrophobic and retard the moisture or water permeation through the layer formed. TECTONIC is highly active against acidic fumes and provides excellent corrosion protection in the acidic environments such as pickling areas or sea humidity.

This can be used to protect structures, chemical plants and equipment's that are intended for outdoor storage or are located in open areas and need protection. It can also be coated on automotive components which require high level of protection such as under bodies, gears, axles, transmissions etc. These can also be used to protect unpacked refinery equipment oil pipeline equipment and valves, off shore refinery parts which are not painted or coated and require protection or during the storage while commissioning, for lay-up during shut downs and also on heat exchangers, wind mills and automotives.
