Silmid P/N: VAR0000550
From £16.68 (excl VAT) £20.02 (Inc VAT)

Ardrox 3968 is a corrosion inhibiting, dewatering fluid which will excellently displace fresh or salt water from metal surfaces. It contains a volatile solvent and when this has evaporated, a very thin oil film remains which gives protection to the metal surface.

Chemetall Ardrox®

Product Information

In metal finishing operations Ardrox 3968 provides an alternative to oven drying where the presence of the final thin oil film is not considered detrimental. As temporary corrosion prevention is provided, the method allows a delay between various processing systems without the danger of corrosion.

Ardrox 3968 has extremely good spreading and penetrating properties and is, therefore, very suitable as an aid to freeing seized-up parts, particularly if these are wet. Due to its water displacing properties, Ardrox 3968 will rapidly restore electrical equipment which has been subjected to flooding to an operative condition. Typical examples of this are electric motors, switchgear and automobile ignition systems.

Ardrox 3968 may be applied by any of the conventional methods such as brushing, dipping, spraying or swabbing. Dipping tanks should be constructed with a sloping or conical bottom. During use, water will accumulate at the bottom of the tank and should be periodically run off. Immersion times do not need to exceed five minutes and usually 2-3 minutes is adequate. Agitation of work in dipping processes should be avoided as this will tend to emulsify the displaced water.
