Lubrizol's Latest AQUALOX™ 2335 Rust Preventive Meets SCAQMD's Stringent VOC Regulations

Published on 2012-03-19. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND -- Lubrizol Additives, a business segment of The Lubrizol Corporation, announced that its recently introduced AQUALOXTM 2335 water-based rust preventive additive for metal applications now meets the stringent VOC (volatile organic compound) reduction requirements of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), Rule 1144. With this latest addition to its premium performance ALOX® family of rust preventives, Lubrizol offers a rust preventing solution to meet virtually every metal protection requirement.

According to Derek Phillips, Lubrizol Commercial Manager, Metal Protection, "Environmental concerns initiated by the State of California are a bellwether for legislative trends around the world. Similar air quality mandates have already been introduced in New Jersey and Illinois, and Lubrizol's AQUALOX2335 technology enables customers to develop high-performance rust preventives to meet such stringent VOC and heavy metal requirements."

Whether used as-is or formulated to specific customer requirements, this new additive package protects metals against heavy-duty outdoor exposure and moderate-duty indoor storage conditions. This proprietary Lubrizol technology creates a protective barrier between the metal and the atmosphere to provide salt spray, humidity and acid fume protection comparable to that of solvent-based technologies. It's easy-to-remove, non-staining, waxy film provides exceptional adhesion to metal surfaces and good cold-temperature flexibility, protecting metal materials, parts and components against the corrosive atmospheres associated with shipping and storage.

When custom formulated, AQUALOX 2335 can deliver a full range of film, wetting and coating characteristics to industrial metal manufacturing applications such as truck and trailer frames, farm machinery, tube and pipe, sheet and coil, construction equipment, small metal parts and components, wire rope and cable.

AQUALOXTM and ALOX® are trademarks of The Lubrizol Corporation.
