Why Steelgard RP Grease?

A stalwart of the Steelgard family of corrosion inhibitors, Steelgard RP Grease (the RP stands for Rust Prevention) is our thickest and most heavy-duty contact corrosion preventative.

Usually applied by brush to protect parts at significant risk of corrosion due to atmospheric conditions or exposure to the elements, RP Grease is lubricating, penetrating and stays in place ensuring metal parts move smoothly against each other and stay protected from oxidation, moisture penetration and rusting.

Effective at temperatures from -40C – +100C and able to withstand minor temperature excursions in excess of 150C, RP Grease will continue to provide protection in the most extreme environments.

Used extensively in offshore, marine and dockside environments, Steelgard RP Grease protects from salt water, high humidity, high temperatures and industrial pollution.  Where different metals are in contact in a coupling or stranded together in a cable, Steelgard RP Grease will fill the contact area or crevices and protect from galvanic or crevice corrosion as well as inhibiting rust on iron, steel and ferrous alloys.
