VCI Transit Coatings protect metal and most painted surfaces throughout shipment. When appropriately applied, the coating is capable of preventing damage from acid rain, seawater, insects, bird droppings, smoke, pollution, dirt, and debris. Now more than ever, manufacturers of large equipment require ways to protect their products from factory to delivery. The shift away from heavy, environmentally damaging coating means that metal surfaces are increasingly vulnerable to corrosion. Improperly protected hose fittings and connectors, for example, are now exposed to corrosion-causing conditions, especially during export.
The Nox-Rust 1150 is a self-healing, solvent-free rust inhibitor coating designed to protect unpainted machinery in shipping crates without smearing or waiting for it to cure. The Nox-Rust 1150 ensures exposed metals are protected and can be packed immediately. This feature of the 1150 helps to improve the speed of handling, improving packaging efficiency, and reducing labour cost required.
The solvent-free, blue thixotropic coating can be applied quickly, staying soft and grease-like and is self-healing. Capable of providing up to 5 years of corrosion protection indoors, the Nox-Rust 1150 can be removed by pressure wash or simply wiping off with a cloth in some applications. It is best suited for fabricated metals packed in wood crates, on pallets, in corrugated and other acidic packagings that may cause corrosion.
The Nox-Rust 3100 is designed to protect metals that are stored outside for over 5+years. In salt fog testing, the most rigorous ASTM standard for measuring the effectiveness of corrosion protection, the Nox-Rust 3100 outlasted the competition, proving itself to be the ultimate choice for protection of equipment and machinery throughout shipment. The Nox-Rust 3100 can be handled after 3-6 hours and sets up within 12 -24 hours. When required, it can be removed by solvent-based thinners, vapour degreasing, or hot alkaline wash.
The Nox-Rust 3100G is a thickened version of the Nox-Rust 3100, featuring the exact excellent corrosion protection features. The thicker consistency of the 3100G makes it capable of clinging to vertical surfaces, adhering to large, heavy, and vertical metal surfaces to provide an even layer of protection. The coating can be easily applied using spray or brush as is ideal for equipment stored outdoor, beneath a cover or tarp.
