Dry Coat(tm) 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(tm) is safe to use on ferrous metals, stainless steel and will not harm most elastomers or plastics.
