EMULSION 530A is a superior rust proofing oil and emulsion cleaner. It is alkali stable under normal conditions and when used at 1% to 25% by volume it imparts corrosion resistance to steel and/or cast iron parts. EMULSION 530A has no objectionable odour and no hazardous ingredients harmful to the skin. EMULSION 530A leaves a non-sticky corrosion inhibiting film which will not interfere with subsequent operations. EMULSION 530A is a specially formulated corrosion inhibitor which provides excellent protection to metal surfaces and sharp edges. This material was formulated for maximum compatibility with downstream painting processes. EMULSION 530A can be used at temperatures from ambient to 130 F. It leaves a non-sticky film which is readily cleanable in a phosphate system.
At a concentration of 1% to 3% by volume EMULSION 530A will protect ferrous parts from red rust for 2 to 3 weeks. At 3% to 5% by volume the corrosion protection increases to 3 to 4 weeks and between 5% to 25% by volume the corrosion protection increases to 1 to 2 months providing that the following conditions are met:
1. Parts are handled with clean gloves to prevent any hand moisture coming in contact with the parts after being coated.
2. Parts are stored in doors where the relative humidity is less than 25%. This condition maybe difficult to achieve during the high humid months of the summer so you may need to increase the concentration by 20% to 30% of your normal operating concentration.
3. Parts are stored in areas where they cannot come into contact with condensation rain chemical misting chemical splash etc.
4. When parts are shipped they should be packaged with Vapour phase corrosion inhibitors foam (such as CHEMINHIB TEM) and in such a manner that condensation cannot form on the parts and in the packaging container. This is especially true during the winter season when parts may be shipped at room temperature cool down during transport and then heat up upon delivery.
