Active Anti Corrosion Solutions

In Detail

Inhibitor coating is a oil based liquid which lubricates and actively displaces moisture replacing with a protective barrier.

IC creates a film which is not easily washed away, both have slightly different finished properties:

  • IC200 stays as a liquid residue after application and can be removed with a surfactant
  • IC500 forms a semi-solid membrane finish and can be removed with a degreaser

Both products are applied by a brush, working the non-solvent oil into the contours and crevices of any asset. It spreads with application and the oil will penetrate any existing corrosion and displace any moisture.

Surface preparation simply requires brushing away any loose debris, equipment can remain in operation saving both time and money.

“Essentially IC200/500 are taking the inhibitor oil element out of TM198 and varying its formulation to use as stand-alone, short-term solutions.” Ed Notley, Technical Manager.

IC200 and IC500 are non-flammable and solvent free.

The image below shows a metal plate protected with IC and subjected to 100 hours ASTM B117 Salt Spray Testing.

IC200/500 offer:

  • Simple solution to short term problems
  • Savings to both operational and capital expenditure
  • Easy and fast to apply with no process downtime
  • Ready to use out of the packet, no preparation required
  • Easily removed
  • Long term asset protection in harsh environments when combined with TM198
