Dry Coat™ Rust Preventative is a water-based liquid RP for ferrous metals. This water-based product is a significant advancement in corrosion prevention technology that replaces solvent and oil-based corrosion inhibitors. Once applied, the clear protective coating, only 800 nanometers thick, will dry-to-touch within 20-30 minutes at ambient conditions. It does not attract dirt or dust on metal parts such as other sticky or tacky products. It is non-hazardous and easily washes off using mild detergents or common metal cleaning solutions. Dry Coat™ is safe to use on ferrous metals, stainless steel and will not harm most elastomers or plastics.
