VCI 400 A Ex Dry VCI 400 A Description TDS MSDS RUSTX 400 A Ex Dry 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 – 400 A Ex Dry rust preventive oil is used where dry to touch feel on the component is required without the need to wash the component before fitting. The thin layered rust preventive also reduces the amount of dust accumulation on the part as well as is an excellent rust preventive for OE supplies where assembly line use of the components is required. Exports of automotive components are a very critical task which requires specialized 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. Application Method Dipping by far is the best method for establishing an even layer on the component. Other methods may be used such as spraying, Brushing, Automatic Conveyor & Spray Jet provided the complete surface of the component is coated with the rust preventive oil. 135 A – Ex should be used with VCI packaging for best long term corrosion prevention results. Use of gloves while handling the components as well as immediate packaging is important. In case the components carry cutting oils or water from previous processes, dewatering with CL005 is recommended. Suitable For Engine Blocks, Machined Steel Components, Castings, Forgings, CR sheets, Bearings, Gears, Transmission Components, Axles, Process Equipment, Flanges, Valves etc. Features Dry to touch Good coverage due to low viscosity-high floatability & high penetration properties Less consumption due to thin film Quick Drying - Dries within 5-6 minutes Doesn’t contaminate cutting fluids Excellent protection against acidic and saline environments Excellent Dewatering & Degreasing Properties Finger Print Remover Doesn’t produce fumes during welding or heat treatment Non Sticky washable film Typical Properties Properties Test Method Value Color Visual Amber Clear Viscosity @ cSt @ 40°C ASTM D 445 2-3 cSt Specific Gravity ASTM D 1298 0.78 – 0.83 Flash Point (before application) ASTM D 92 110 oC Coverage (sq m/ Lt) 100-140 Film thickness IS 2074 1-2 microns Pour Point ASTM D 97 Below -5oC Saponification Value (mg KOH/gm) ASTM D 94 5.0-7.0 Washability Yes Removability Yes Paintability Yes if concenterate Engine Oil Compatibility Pass Dry Time to touch 15-30 minutes Packaging Available 26 Liters Can & 210 Liters Barrel Safety Information RUST-X products do not contain Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), or Polybrominated di-phenylether complying with the re-stricted substances listed in Article 4(1) of the RoHS Directive RUST-X products are also REACH Compliant for exports to the European Union.
