Why Steelgard Export?

When products are destined for customers in far-flung places they may encounter more challenging conditions which require a more resilient corrosion preventative:

 •  High temperatures •  Corrosive atmospheres  •  Salt and condensation  •   Packing case corrosion

These are often compounded by delays, severe weather, damaged packing cases, corrosive fumes and dust, and lengthy periods in storage before delivery to end customer.

Traditional thick, heavy coatings can be difficult, messy and time-consuming to apply and even worse to remove, often prone to dry into a lacquer or gum.  In high temperatures they may even melt and drain away, leaving parts exposed.

Steelgard Export is proven to be a far more effective solution.  It is easy to apply by spray, brush, dip etc. We can even add a dye to help ensure complete coverage. During application it removes water, neutralises fingerprints and spreads and penetrates easily into nooks and crannies. Once dry it leaves a thin, transparent film of c. 10 microns which is soft, lubricating and self-healing.

Most machinery and components can be put into service without the need to remove Steelgard Export, however where removal is desired, it can simply be wiped off or cleaned completely with simple solvents, or by jetwashing in the case of large vehicles and painted finishes.
