Ardrox 3966 Corrosion Preventative 25Lt

ARDROX 3966 is a blend of surfactants, corrosion inhibitors and oil in a petroleum-based solvent. It is designed to have excellent dewatering and penetrating properties and will leave a thin, oily film on articles to which it is applied. This film will impart good corrosion protection.

Ardrox 3966 is a water-displacing product for temporary corrosion protection. Ardrox 3966 consists of a mixture of surfactants, corrosion inhibitors and mineral oils. Ardrox® 3966 has extremely good spreading and penetrating properties. It also contains a volatile solvent and when this has evaporated, a very thin oil film remains which displaces water from the surface and gives temporary protection to the metal surface.
