Corrosion is commonly understood as the oxidation of metals. It is known that iron and simple steels rust in moist air without the need for further reactants. The course of corrosion effects strongly depends on the properties of the metals concerned and the ambient conditions. A substantial influence is always exerted by moisture.
Thus, the metal working with water-miscible or water-soluble cooling lubricants presents a challenge with respect to corrosion protection.
By means of special corrosion inhibitors, which are added to the dpi cooling lubricants, damage to the component and the machines can be largely avoided by forming surface films. By taking very simple measures, such as leaving the machine open overnight, can help to protect the machine because it can dry.
Under certain circumstances, however, additional corrosion protection may be required.
CORROsafe RED is a fast-drying, corrosion protection spray which, when used, creates a completely dry and transparent surface which is resistant to corrosion and in most cases there is no need to remove the protective layer before further processing.
The product was originally developed for the plastics industry in order to protect the spraying tools from corrosion after use in the extrusion site. For this application, the product was dyed red to show or document the application. Today the product has also established itself in the metal workshop as corrosion protection for tools, during building maintenance as protection against concrete, paint or other materials on machines, elevators or other plant parts.
CORROsafe RED can replace oil-based and other products that can get dirty, sticky and hard when used.
BIOsolv rust solvent
BIOsolv is a rust solvent that quickly and easily solves corrosion problems in metalworking as well as in general handling of metals. BIOsolv can be used in the workshops for drilling, cutting and other metalworking where a machining fluid is required. It also provides useful services for tools and equipment on CNC machines which have been corroded or attacked by salting up the cooling lubricants. Apply it easily, allow to react and remove corrosion marks with a abrasive carded web (safe for the metalworking fluids used).
BIOsolv is produced from aromatic-free normal paraffin, synthetic ester and from the fat of a coconut. The product is free of oils and other chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons and is therefore not a threat to the health of the user and the environment. By adding special additives, BIOsolv has the very good creeping properties of a "rust solvent" or "rust remover".
CORROprotect – Dewateringfluid
CORROprotect DW2010 "Dewatering Fluid" is a low-viscosity, solvent-based corrosion protection oil with excellent dewatering properties. After evaporation of the solvent, a thin, oily greasy protective film remains on the treated surface.
The remaining thin protective film provides effective protection against corrosion during medium-term intermediate storage or transport of the treated components and workpieces to the next machining process.
Thanks to the excellent dewatering properties, CORROprotect can be used for e.g. aqueous cleaning or grinding after treatment of workpieces after galvanic surface finishing or processing with water-mixed metalworking fluids.
If necessary, CORROprotect can be easily removed with aqueous alkaline cleaners, which are also available in our product range.
