Rustop 1 - back to Anti-corrosives

Description Rustop 1 is a highly penetrating, water displacing, solvent deposited, oil/grease film short term anti-corrosive. 

Appearance Rustop 1 is a mobile hazy brown liquid. 

Application Rustop 1 has been designed as a good de-watering product and short term rust preventive. It gives short term protection of ferrous and aluminium alloy components and is particularly suited for inter-process protection after machining operations, phosphating and electrochemical processes.
Rustop 1 has excellent de-watering properties and resistance to emulsification. It gives good coverage of a light film,containing a fingerprint suppressant, which does not need cleaning off prior to assembly.  

In Service Use Rustop 1 can be applied by dipping, spraying or brushing. Dipping is recommended to ensure complete coverage and maximum economy in use. After dipping components should be allowed to drain to minimise drag-out losses. Care should be taken to ensure minimum solvent evaporation from the tank which should be fitted with a lid. Components should not be dipped whilst hot.
The product has excellent atomisation characteristics when sprayed which ensures good even coverage. Spraying should be carried out using low pressure sprays in well ventilated areas to avoid the build up of solvent vapours.
Rustop 1 should be applies to clean surfaces for best results the product should be applied at a temperature of 10-25 deg. C. Ensure that adequate provision is made to drain and collect any surplus fluid.
