Easy to apply and environmentally friendly RustPrufe corrosion protection solution from wear control specialist, Filter Focus eliminates the need to repair damage to steel surfaces occurring during extended storage periods or shipping and handling. It is an acrylic polymer emulsion that dries to form a seamless, skintight weather- and UV-resistant protective barrier.
"Items such as valves, gears, shafts, and motors are often subjected to harsh climatic conditions, and RustPrufe is the most convenient, cost-effective and user-friendly option to ensure that these costly components are not damaged;' explains Filter Focus wear control specialists. "The components do not have to be sanded down or rust treated. Upon application, the product is peeled off by hand to reveal a clean and rust-free surface:'
RustPrufe does not leave behind a residue. It is also highly durable and should tears or perforations appear, they can be closed by applying the coating to the exposed area with a paintbrush. RustPrufe can also be applied on operational equipment as a permanent anti-corrosion coating
"RustPrufe is also acid-resistant, and has been successfully used to protect electric motors in acid plants on numerous South African mines;' they add. It is environmentally friendly and the coating can be disposed of safely in landfills. "With no harmful chemicals, PPE is not required and an absence of harmful vapours and fumes means that the solution can be applied in confined spaces too,'' they concluded.
