SELCO 57, consists of a multiple organic inhibitor system in a paraffinic oil base that prevents rust and corrosion by displacing and sealing out moisture and by forming a continuous protection barrier against water and oxygen. It penetrates and lubricates.
SELCO 57, forms a thin, invisible film that never gets dry nor brittle, and penetrates into the finest pores and cracks of the surface. It does not have to be removed before the metal is machined, welded, stamped or otherwise processed. It can be applied on iron, steel, aluminium, brass, copper, and all other commonly used metals and alloys, regardless whether the surface is bare, painted or plated. It offers on especially effective protection against corrosive atmosphere containing salt acids, or caustic vapours. In addition to its corrosion protection properties, SELCO 57, has the advantage of great penetrating power and lubricity to cut through rust and to loosen and lubricate moving parts. This make SELCO 57 an ideal maintenance product.
SELCO 57, is easy to apply by spraying, brushing, wiping or dipping as conditions require. Its unique spreading and penetrating power ensures complete coverage and protection of the entire treated surface, including the finest precision mechanisms, pores and cracks. It leaves tolerances unchanged.
SELCO 57, is economical to use with an expected coverage of approximately 140 m2 per litre, and costs usually required for removal of other protective coatings are eliminated. The time of protection of
SELCO 57, will vary with the environmental conditions. Because of its thin, soft film, which never dries, SELCO 57, is primarily for use indoors, and direct weathering exposures of the treated metals should
be avoided. Where atmospheric conditions are severe, or for storage over longer periods.
SELCO 57, corresponds to US-Military Specifications MIL.-C-23411 ( NATO Stock No. 8030-17 ). It is also certified SAFE according to the Lawrence Hydrogen Effusion Test (high strength steels – hydrogen embrittlement) and corresponds to many other specifications of manufacturers for military or industrial products.
