Product Description

Exports of steel coils is a very critical task which requires specialised Rust Preventive Packaging schemes in synergism with highly effective rust preventive oils. RUSTX-­‐EX Export Grade oils have higher, faster and longer duration of effective chemicals that protect the metallic components from saline atmospheres during sea transportation as well as long term storage.

RUSTX series oils contain VCI chemicals, which work in contact phase as well as in the vapour phase and protect components by its dual action.

RUSTX – 461 A is a viscous grade of rust preventive oil having excellent thixotropic properties and holds well on surfaces that may be super finished or vertically placed.


Application Method

  • In circulation system it can be used in electrostatic spraying.
  • Provides bite and feed through properties
  • It can be sprayed using high pressure gun
  • It can applied by letting a few drops pass through rollers
  • Other methods may be used such as mist spraying, electrostatic spraying, brushing, automatic conveyor spray or dip process pray. It is important that the complete surface of the component is coated with the rust preventive oil.


Suitable for:

Coil Rolled Coils, Galvanized coils, Machined Steel Components, Castings, Forgings, CR sheets, Bearings, Gears, Transmission Components, Axles, Process Equipment, Flanges, Valves  etc.


  • Lubricating oil film
  • Thixotropic properties
  • Long Term Corrosion Prevention
  • Electrostatically Sprayable
  • Easily washable with water and solvent based products
  • Excellent protection against acidic and saline environments
  • Non Sticky soft film
