Introducing Sustainable, Non-Toxic, VOC-Free Bio-Rust Preventative Fluid

August 17, 2022  By Renewable Lubricants

Renewable Lubricants introduces Bio-Rust Preventative Fluid, a bio-based formulation that is environmentally non-toxic, VOC-free, sustainable, and highly effective at inhibiting corrosion on ferrous and galvanized steel. This non-staining, water displacing formulation provides a waxy film that is especially effective in protecting ferrous materials in salt and acid-fume (hydrochloric acid) environments and against humidity.  Specially designed biodegradable Bio-Rust Preventative meets the corrosion protection film form MIL-PRF-16173, Class II, Grade 3.  They are ideal for metalworking applications where excellent in-house corrosion protection and easy cleaning of parts is essential.

Bio-Rust Preventative provides >120 hours of protection in HCI acid Fume test, and >80 hours in a 5% Salt Spray (fog) ASTM D117 test.  Additional Renewable Lubricants products are available to meet other corrosion inhibition applications.

In addition to corrosion protection, these products are used as non-chlorinated metalworking fluids that provide extreme pressure, anti-wear, and lubricity performance in stamping and drawing applications.  They can also be used as wire rope and chain lubricants.
