Why Steelgard TD20 or Steelgard TD30?

Steelgard GP and Steelgard Export are perfect for a wide range of applications.  Between them they are effective at preventing corrosion in everything from jet engines to off-road vehicles being transported across the equator.  Trusted by customers worldwide including the UK Ministry of Defence and the Singapore Air Force, the name Steelgard has become synonymous with reliable corrosion prevention in a clean, simple and easy to use formulation.

Some customers were finding Steelgard highly effective but, due to the ultra-thin, lubricating film having a slightly greasy feel, wanted a corrosion inhibitor which was just as good at preventing corrosion but with a finish more suited to leaving on their finished products or with better handling during the manufacturing process.

At Vapor-Tek we are always happy to accept a challenge… we headed to the lab and formulated Steelgard TD – Touch Dry.  We decided to offer two formulations. 

  • Steelgard TD20 has 20% active inhibitors and is a slightly stronger corrosion preventative than Steelgard GP.
  • Steelgard TD30 has 30% active inhibitors which brings it closer to Steelgard Export in effectiveness, but still with a touch-dry finish for easy handling.
