Birchwood Casey offers a full line of eight different aqueous and solvent-based inhibitors and sealants to prevent rust and corrosion on all metal surfaces.

Providing precise corrosion resistance, Birchwood Casey rust preventative and corrosion inhibiting products enable selection according to needs for lubricity, dryness and decorative appeal.

Referencing a handy corrosion resistance comparison chart, manufacturers can select the exact rust preventative that will best suit their needs.

The different product formulations allow for variables such as the type of metal surface in question, term of protection needed, and conditions of exposure in handling, shipping and storage.

Special considerations such as removability and post-treatment operations can be considered in the selection of the correct product.

Birchwood Casey’s four solvent-based products provide robust protection for various metal surfaces, including raw steel/casting inventory, in-process parts, finished products in distributor warehouses, or parts in long-term storage or overseas shipment.

Rust inhibitors are graded based on their performance in ASTM B117 Salt Spray Testing and/or ASTM D1748 Humidity Testing.

Depending on the rust inhibitor selected, the user can achieve protective coatings with either a slightly oily water-displacing film, or a dry-to-touch, non-oily sealant, or a soft-waxy, self-healing film.

Two of the products are also available in high flash point, non-VOC versions for areas with sensitive air quality requirements.

Following similar ASTM grading, Birchwood Casey’s four water-based products provide a wide range of protection levels and surface appearance.

These products include a water-dilutable oil, a dry water-based sealant, a satin-gloss acrylic polymer, or a high-gloss urethane polymer sealant.

None of these aqueous products have any VOC content or flash point.

Widely used on tooling, motion control components, automotive parts and in many other applications, all eight Birchwood Casey products are available in five gallon and 55 gallon quantities and may be ordered online.

Specific technical information for each product is also available online.

To supplement this information, a Birchwood Casey technical service expert can be contacted by phone to determine which rust preventative and corrosion inhibitor is best for a specific application.
