Product Properties


Product Information

This film will impart good corrosion protection but is not recommended for outdoor storage protection. Other Ardrox products (such as Ardrox 3140) are available for long-term protection outdoors.


  • Dewatering and temporary corrosion protection after pickling
  • Temporary protection in inter-stage fabrication and storage of parts, sub-assemblies, dies and tools
  • Penetrating fluid for freeing seized components
  • Restoring wet electrical equipment to working order without the necessity for drying out
  • Preservation of gas turbine compressors
  • Maintenance protection of on-site plant and equipment

The preferred methods of application of Ardrox 396/1 E8 are by spraying, brushing or swabbing. It may, however, also be applied by dipping, in which case tanks should be constructed with a sloping or conical bottom so that any water which collects may be easily run off.

Ardrox 396/1 E8 may be removed with white spirit, Ardrox 9PR50 or Ardrox 5503.
